This articles is about the tribal lineages. For tribal structure see Pashtun tribal structure.

The Pashtun people are the largest ethnic group in Afghanistan and the second largest in Pakistan. Pashtun (also called ethnic Afghan or Pathan) tribes are divided into four supertribal confederacies: the Arbanee (Sarabani), Betanee (Baitani), Gharghasht, and Karlanee (Krai, Kerlani).[citation needed]

Traditionally, according to folklore, all Pashtuns are said to have descended, at the time of the introduction of Islam, from the tribe of Qais Abdur Rashid, who died in 662 CE, and his three sons: Saraban, Batan and Ghurghusht.[1][2] Karrān or Karlān was said to be the ancestor of the fourth branch.[3] Estimates of the number of Pashtun tribes and clans range from about 350 to over 400.[4][5]

Arbanee (Sarbani)[edit]

There are 105[6] Sarbani tribes, including:

Ghorgasht (Gharghakht)[edit]

  • Balailzai (Panni) (Panri, Barozai, Zarkoon, Looni, Abdullahkhail, Habibzai, Marghazani, Dehpal, Mzari)
  • Naghar (Ans, Terk, Parman, Damsan, Abdul Rahman, Solat khani (Goryani-Shahpurchakar))
  • Dawi (According to history he was brother of Kakar, Naghar, Pani and Babie)

Karlanee (Kerlani)[edit]

Quraishi

Many Pashtuns describe their lineage from the Arab tribe of Quraysh. Some of these carry the title of Sayed to refer lineage to the Islamic prophet Muhammad.[8]

example: Zeenat Karzai."Born and raised in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar, the daughter of a civil servant, Zeenat Quraishi moved to Kabul after high school to attend Kabul University. She is an ethnic Pashtun.Dr. Zeenat belongs to the Quraish family line and her husband Karzai is from the Popalzai tribe

In 1999, Karzai married Zeenat Quraishi, a doctor who was providing medical attention to Afghan refugees living in Pakistan. She too was raised in the city of Kandahar, is Pashtun and a member of the Quraish tribe.[9]

S[edit]

The Shinwaris are derived from the Kasi tribe, and are further distributed into sub-tribes:[10]
