Hashim (Arabic: هاشم‎) is a common male Arabic given name, which signifies "Destroyer of Evil”

The title Hashim was given to 'Amr al-ʻUlā ibn 'Abd Manaf, as he was generous in providing bread to poor people and travelers going to Mecca. This Hashim was the great-grandfather of the Islamic prophet Muhammad and the progenitor of the Banu Hashim clan of the distinguished Quraish tribe in Mecca.
