Who are Bani Sa’idah?
They are the children of Sa’idah bin Ka’ab bin Al-Khazraj. The Khazraj, as everyone is aware, was the biggest tribe in Al-Madinah.
Who is Sa’ad bin Ubada?
He is Sa’ad bin Ubada bin Dulaim bin Haritha bin Abi Khuzaimah bin Tha’alaba bin Tareef bin Al-Khazraj bin Sa’idah bin Ka’ab bin Al-Khazraj. In other words, he is of the children of Sa’adah, and he is the leader of Bani Sa’idah, and he is the leader of Al-Khazraj.
