Bādūrayā
(147 words)

, a district southwest of Bag̲h̲dād, the land south of the Nahr Ṣarāt, a branch of the Euphrates canal Nahr ʿĪsā [q. v.]. The Ṣarāt separates it from the Ḳaṭrabbul district; the southern part of the western half of Bag̲h̲dād (the so-called town of al-Manṣūr) as well as the suburb of Kark̲h̲ were situated within the bounds of the district of Bādūrayā; the latter formed, like the district of Ḳaṭrabbul, a subdivision of the circle of Astān al-ʿĀlī.
