Banu Lakhm

Banu Lakhm (Arabic: بنو لخم) is a large Arab tribe tracing their lineage back to Qahtan, who created an Arab kingdom in Al-Hira, near modern Kufa, Iraq. This kingdom acted as a buffer zone between Arabia and the Persian Empire, preventing Bedouin Arab tribes from infiltrating Persian lands.
