The Bani Shaiba (or Banī Shaybat) are an Islamic tribe that hold the keys to the Kaaba. The members of the tribe greet visitors into the Kaaba during the cleaning ceremony.


This was bestowed on Tasm, a tribe of Aad before Quraish. It passed to Khuza'a, then Qusai, who gave it to his son Abdul Dar, who handed it over to his son Othman. It shifted from one person to another until it rested with their nephew Shaiba. It is still inherited by their ancestors up to the present day. Muhammad, the Prophet of God, handed the key to Bani Shaiba in the year of the conquest of Makkah Al-Mukarramah, and said, "Take it, O Bani Talha, eternally up to the Day of Resurrection,and it will not be taken from you unless by an unjust, oppressive tyrant"zh:班尼·沙巴特
