Al-Tufayl ibn Amr al-Dawsi (died 633) was the chief of the Banu Daws tribe from Tihama in pre-Islamic times. He accepted Islam before the hijra and helped spread Islam among his fellow tribesmen. During the Riddah wars, he led a contingent of his people against the impostor Mosailima. In the Battle of Yamama, Tufayl ibn Amr fell as a martyr.
