The term al-hadhar referred to the sedentary inhabitants of the towns and cities of Zakhara, the Land of Fate.
Al-hadhar had easy lives compared to their desert nomad kin. These people never dealt with the constant search for water, food, and shelter that dominated the lives of al-badia.
Al-hadhar came from all walks of life including the nobility, merchant families, laborers, and craftsmen. Most respected honor and followed the teachings of the Enlightened Gods.
