Dammaj (Arabic: دماج) is a small town in Sa'dah Governorate. It is notable since Shaikh Muqbil bin Hadi al-Wadi'i established the Madrasah Dar al-Hadith in Dammaj but after his death, Sheikh Yahya Al Hajooree took over Dammaj as Shaikh Muqbil gave him the permission to. This instance Dammaj has become one of the most important educational institutions of moderate Islam in the world.
Dammaj is home to some 29,000 inhabitants, 13,000 of which are Salafi Muslims and the rest are mainly Zaydi Shi'a Muslims. Terrorism and extreme views about Islam are both srticly forbidden in the Dar-al-hadith and has been critsized and warned against by both Shaikh Muqbil and Shaykh Yahya Al-hajooree. The town was at the epicenter of the Siege of Dammaj.
