The Habar Gidir (Somali: Habargidir, Arabic: هبر جدير‎) is a Somali clan, part of the larger Hawiye group.

The clan has produced some prominent Somali figures, such as Abdullahi Issa, the chairman of the Somali Youth League (SYL) and first Prime Minister of Somalia prior to independence, Dr. Abdiqasim Salad Hassan, the former President of Somalia, and Mohamed Farrah Aidid, Chairman of the United Somali Congress.
