Bad̲j̲īla
(148 words)

, an Arabian tribe of Bedouins, which occupied the central part of the Sarāt mountains — at Ṭāʾif — stretching northwards from South Arabia after they had displaced the tribe originally dwelling there, the Banū T̲h̲āʾir. The tribe was gradually broken up through feuds with the neighbouring tribes and the quarrels of the individual clans with one another and even in pre-Muḥammadan times had been for the most part merged in other Arab tribes. A part however survived under the old name and was celebrated in the Umaiyad period by the poet Farazdaḳ.
