Dorayd bin Al Soma was a pre-Islamic warrior, knight and poet of the Hawazin tribe. He was also the chief of the Banu Jusham, or the modern day Al-Qthami clan of the tribe of Otaibah. Historians have cited that he contributed to more than a hundred battles for his tribe. By the time of the rise of Islam, he was already an old man and remained a pagan.[1]
