Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Utaybah (Arabic:, also spelled Uteibah, Otaibah, and Otaiba) is a large Sunni Muslim tribe of the Arabian Peninsula. As is the case with many other large tribal confederations in the region, the name Otaibah only appeared within the last few centuries. Otaibah's original territory was concentrated in the area around Taif, but in the 18th century, their lands extended to include central Nejd. They have migrated to many Arab countries like Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon and Egypt.The head of the tribe is the Bin Humaid family. The meeting of the Otaibah Tribe is considered to be the biggest family meeting in the world and was held in 2007, in the centre of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
