A feddan (Arabic: ‎, romanizedfadd?n) is a unit of area. It is used in Egypt, Sudan, Syria and the Sultanate of Oman. In Classical Arabic, the word means 'a yoke of oxen': implying the area of ground that could be tilled by them in a certain time. In Egypt the feddan is the only non-metric unit which remained in use following the switch to the metric system. A feddan is divided into 24 kirat (Arabic: ‎, q?r?t) in which one kirat equals 175 square metres.[1]

Equivalent units

1 feddan = 24 kirat = 60 metre × 70 metre = 4200[2]square metres (m²) = 0.420 hectares = 1.037 acres[3]

In Syria, the feddan ranges from 2295 square metres (m²) to 3443 square metres (m²).
