The Tamimi clan is one of the largest clans in Hebron and Nablus (Palestine). The Prophet (Peace Be Upon him) gave Hebron (Al-Khaleel) area and its surroundings to Tamim Addarai as a trust. A copy of that trust can be found in a book written by Dr. Abdulrahman Tamimi of Jordan University of Science and Technology, Irbid-Jordan. The title of the book is " A3lam Al Al-khateeb Al-Addari Al-Tamimi (2000).

It seemed that the author has confused between banu tamim and banu taim, the latter is a clan of Quraish and Abu Baker the first caliph is one of them, Banu tamim is a separate tribe with no relation to Abu Baker or Quarish itself, it seems that i can't modify the page without being a registered user.

There are two mistakes I wanted to point out, the Tamimi clan in Palestine descends from Tamim Al-Dari and is therefore not related to the Banu Tamim discussed in this article. Another mistake is the saying in the beginning of the article "Had it not been for the coming of Islam, the Tamīm tribe would have consumed the Arabs." The tribe should be Taghlib, not Tamim. (original in arabic: "lawlal islamu la akalat taghlib-un-il 'arab" I added the hyphens to make the tribe's name clear) 19:43, 31 March 2007 (UTC)Amr195.69.209.1 19:43, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Actually there is another version of this quote relating to Tamim as well as Taghlib. This is a common phenomenon. Slacker 04:05, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

I think the part in the introductory, about people “still” claim descendent from the Tamimi tribe is not right, this typical attempted by certain Arab countries to a tribe, to which many countries carry members from it. Tamim is large tribe and many counties are home to many of its members, and one comment here is right, there is possibility that the Tamimi in Palestine, Iraq, Yemen and North Africa (Algeria mainly) are also included.

Banu Tammim has nothing to do with Bani Taym —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:52, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Allies with Persia[edit]

Who says they were allies with the Sassanid empire? The Tamim clan helped bring down the Persian empire — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:06, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
