Banu Hudhayl (Arabic: بـنـو هـذيـل) are an Adnanite tribe of western Saudi Arabia in Hijjaz. They are descended from Hudhayl, who was a grandson of Ilyas (known as Elijah in Jewish and Christian traditions) who was named after the prophet Elijah.

Ancestry[edit]

The tribe traces a genealogical history backwards from their eponymous ancestor to Adam:
