The Banu Fazāra were an Arab tribe whose original homeland was Najd.

Origins[edit]

According to Arab genealogical tradition, the progenitor of the Banu Fazara was Fazāra ibn Dhubyān ibn Baghīd ibn Rayth ibn Ghaṭafān. Thus the tribe belonged to the Dhubyan branch of the Ghatafan, making the Fazara a north Arabian tribe.[1] Its ancestral pasture grounds were in the Wadi al-Rumma region of the Najd in central Arabia.[1]
