Banu Salama (Arabic: بني سلمة‎) Tudjibid (or perhaps Banu Qasi) family that governed the regions of Huesca and Barbitanya (Barbastro) in the Upper Mark of Al-Andalus c. 780-800. In 800 Bahlul Ibn Marzuq, revolted in Zaragoza, taking the region and the Banu Salama were deposed. Instrumental to their removal was the popular support garnered by Ibn Marzuq after public backing by theologian Ibn al-Mughallis.[1][2]
