According to Islamic tradition, the Adnanites are "Arabized Arabs", descended from Adnan.[1] They were from the northern, central and western Arabia, as opposed to the Qahtanites of southern and south eastern Arabia who were of pure Arabic stock.[2][3] According to modern historians, the traditional distinction between Adnanites and Qahtanites lacks evidence and may have developed out of the later faction-fighting during the Umayyad period.[1]
