Banu Lam (Arabic: بنو لام) is an Arab tribe of central Arabia and southern Iraq. The tribe claims descent from the ancient Arab tribe of Tayy. It has dominated western Nejd (the region between Medina and al-Yamama) before the 15th century for more than 400 years with deep history into the region of Nejd. The tribe is contained of three sub-tribes bedouin (nomadic) groups: the Fudhool, the Al Kathir, and the Al Mughira , and Al-Dhafeer. Many clans from Bani Lam, however, remained in Nejd as settled townspeople.
