Quraishi (also rendered as Qureshi, Qoraishi, Koraishi, Kureshi, Kureshy or Kureishi), () is a family name that originates from Arabs in Saudi Arabia, particularly from the city of Mecca.


According to traditional legends, Arab lineages allegedly originate from three groups:

  • Perished Arabs (العرب البائدة): These are the ancients of whose history little is known. They include ‘Ad, Thamûd, Tasam, Jadis, Imlaq and others.

  • Pure Arabs (العرب العاربة): They allegedly originated from the progeny of Ya‘rub bin Yashjub bin Qahtan bin Hud so were also called Qahtanian Arabs.

  • Arabized Arabs (العرب المستعربة): They allegedly originated from the progeny of Ishmael and were also called ‘Adnanian Arabs. The Quraish are a branch of the "Arabized Arabs".

The Quraish was a branch of the Kinana, which descended from Elias bin Mudar, who descended from Adnan. After the introduction of Islam, the Quraish gained supremacy and produced the three dynasties of the Ummayads, Abbasids and Fatimides, which ruled as Caliphs.
