Mahd al-Aadiyya (Arabic: مَهد العادية) was supposedly an Arabic poet from around 4000 BCE. She is unlikely to have existed: Rather she is a chronicle character who is portrayed uttering a muzdawaj (heroic couplet) warning the people of ʿĀd of their impending destruction by Allah, in accordance with the prophecies of the prophet Hud.
