A dragon (thu‘ban), from a copy of ‘Ajā’ib al-makhlūqāt wa-gharā’ib al-mawjūdāt (Marvels of Things Created and Miraculous Aspects of Things Existing) by al-Qazwīnī

Thu'ban (Arabic: ثعبان) is a jinni who was worshiped as a snake god by pagan Arabs, he was also known variously as Hanash, Hayya and Hubab. The jinn often took the form of serpents, and they were a sacred totem to the Minaeans of Yemen. It was reported that the Prophet Muhammad told a Makkan man who was called Hubab to change his name as it was the name of a shaytan. Hubab was the giant serpent who guarded the treasures in the well of the Ka'aba of Makkah.
