KHUZA’AH خزاعة
Lit. “A remnant.” A part of the Banu ‘l-Azd who were left behind when the tribe migrated, and who settled down permanently near Makkah. They were from the first friendly to Muhammad, and made a treaty with him soon after that of al Hudaibiyah. They were an important portion of the army which marched to Makkah with the Prophet.
