Haushabi or Hawshabi (Arabic: ?al-?awshab? or Arabic: ?al-?aw?shab), or the Haushabi Sultanate (Arabic: ?Sal?anat al-?aw?shab), was a state in the British Aden Protectorate. Its capital was Musaymir. The area is now part of the Republic of Yemen.


Haushabi was established in the eighteenth century.[1] Its leader signed an agreement with the British already in 1839, but it was not until 1895 that a formal protection agreement with Great Britain was signed. Subsequently, it became part of the British Aden Protectorate. The state later joined the Federation of Arab Emirates of the South, and its successor, the Federation of South Arabia.

The last sultan, Faisal bin Surur Al Haushabi, was deposed and his state was abolished in 1967 upon the founding of the People's Republic of South Yemen.


The rulers of Haushabi bore the title Sultan al-Saltana al-Hawshabiyya.[2]
