This is where the Basous war erupted

“Hima Dhariya” still recalls the sad history of the Arabs, represented by the Basous war that sparked over the killing of a camel. Everything here tells how the incident happened. If the stones could speak, they would have said a lot about the poetry that was made in Hima Dhariya.
The names of the locations within Dhariya stretch from the west of Qassim and reach the boundaries of the city of Medina, Riyadh and Makkah; it is one of the most important grasslands that is still abundant with vegetation and fields, up until now.
Hima Dhariyah also includes beautiful granite hill that were mentioned in the poems of the Arabs; they still retain the same names as before, back when the battles erupted.
During a discovery trip, al-Arabiya accompanied Dr. Eid al-Yehya to the “Ma’a al-Ziaab hill that is located 80 kilometers southwest of the Afif province, where Jassas stabbed his cousin near the water and a long-lasting conflict erupted.
