Hadhramaut

The name Hadhramaut formerly referred to the Hadhramaut states, a collective term for the Quaiti and Kathiri sultanates that were British protectorates until 1967. Today, the Hadhramaut region roughly incorporates the territory of the two sultanates, extending about 400 mi (640 km) along the southeastern coast of Yemen.

Hadhramawt was long ago referred to as the Land of Al'Ahqaf. Legend has it that Hadhramaut was named so, after Amar Bin Qahtan, who is said to have invaded Al'Ahqaf; after the disappearance of the A'ad people who are mentioned in the Noble Quran. Folklore has it that, whenever Amar Bin Qahtan entered a battle, many people died. And thus, the Land of Al'Ahqaf was called Hadhr (meaning in Arabic: 'has come' or 'was present') and mout (meaning 'death' in Arabic). While Biblical dictionaries, seem to indicate that the name Hadhramout, is what is referred to as Hazarmaveth in The Bible - Genesis 10:26 and Chronicles 1:20. Hazarmaveth is said to have been derived from the Greek word hydreumata; meaning enclosed or fortified 'watering stations' found in valleys.
