The Banu Sa'd (Arabic: بنو سعد‎ / ALA-LC: Banū Saʾd) was one of the tribes of Arabia during Muhammad's era. The Banu Sa'd were a subgroup of the larger Hawazin tribal confederation. They were notable for being allies to the polytheist Meccans and warring with the Muslims during Islam's early days.[citation needed] Halima Sadia, Muhammad's wet nurse, belonged to this tribe.[1]
