Al Hayl is a suburb of Fujairah, United Arab Emirates (UAE), at the mouth of the Wadi Hayl.[1] It is traditionally the home of the Kunud (singular Al Kindi) tribe.[2]

It is the site of a Dhs1.7 billion construction project, Mohammed bin Zayed City, which is planned to comprise 1,100 houses and apartments, as well as offering community services.[3]

Al Hayl Fort,[4] a hilltop fortification that has been dated to 1932, stands over the restored old village of Hayl. The wadi also contains a collection of petroglyphs,[5] thought to date back to the Iron Age. Over 100 examples of rock art have been documented but a number are under threat because of the expansion of quarries as well as industrial sites and residential areas.[6]

The Kunud are thought to be descendants of Aswad Al Kindi, who moved to the area of Oman from Yemen in the time of Muhammad.[7]
