Tribes of Arabia

Tribes of Arabia

Arabs are a semitic people, descending from various Old North Arabian tribes.

Much of the the lineage provided before Ma'ad relies on biblical genealogy and therefore its accuracy from that link uses the bible as a genealogical historical record. The general consensus among 14th century arabic genealogists is that Arabs are of three kinds:

Perishing Arabs: These are the ancients of whose history little is known. They include ‘Ad, Thamud, Tasm, Jadis, Imlaq and others. Jadis and Tasm perished because of genocide. Ad and Thamud perished because of their decadence. Some people in the past doubted their existence, but

Imlaq is the singular form of 'Amaleeq and is probably synonymous to the biblical Amalek.

Pure Arabs: They allegedly originated from the progeny of Ya‘rub bin Yashjub bin Qahtan so were also called Qahtanian Arabs.

Arabized Arabs: They allegedly originated from the progeny of Ishmael Son of the biblical patriarch Abraham and were also called ‘Adnani Arabs.
