The tribe of Banu Tamim (Arabicبـنـو تـمـيـم‎‎) or Bani Tamim (Arabicبـني تـمـيـم‎‎) is one of the main tribes of Arabia. Tamim, the ancestor of the tribe, is a direct descendant of Adnan and is thus considered an Ishmaelite tribe descending from Ishmael, the son of Abraham.

Today, descendants from the tribe live in the Arabian Peninsula and neighboring countries such as Saudi ArabiaEgypt,[1][2] IraqKuwaitJordanSyriaQatarOmanYemenBahrainUnited Arab EmiratesIranLebanon and Palestine. The word Tamim in Arabic means strong and solid. It also means perfection.

​Hadith
وَحَدَّثَنَا حَامِدُ بْنُ عُمَرَ الْبَكْرَاوِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا مَسْلَمَةُ بْنُ عَلْقَمَةَ الْمَازِنِيُّ، إِمَامُ مَسْجِدِ دَاوُدَ حَدَّثَنَا دَاوُدُ، عَنِ الشَّعْبِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ ثَلاَثُ خِصَالٍ سَمِعْتُهُنَّ مِنْ، رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فِي بَنِي تَمِيمٍ لاَ أَزَالُ أُحِبُّهُمْ بَعْدُ وَسَاقَ الْحَدِيثَ بِهَذَا الْمَعْنَى غَيْرَ أَنَّهُ قَالَ ‏
‏ هُمْ أَشَدُّ النَّاسِ قِتَالاً فِي الْمَلاَحِمِ ‏”
‏ ‏‏ وَلَمْ يَذْكُرِ الدَّجَّالَ ‏‏
Abu Huraira reported:
There are some distinguishing features of Banu Tamim which I heard from Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) and my love for them is never on the decline after that and the words are: They are the bravest amongst people in the battlefield and there is no mention of (the word)” Dajjal”.
