Harrat 'Uwayrid volcano is one of several basaltic volcanic fields in western Arabia, located 120 km east of the Red Sea. The field contains vast lava flows, scoria cones and tuff cones in a NW-SE aligned 125 km long area. To the NW, it joins with the Harrat ar Rahat volcanic field.
An eruption has probably occurred at around 640 AD from either the Hala-'l-Bedr or Hala-'l-'Ischia cones, or both. Bedouin legends remember that Hala-'l-Bedr erupted fire and stones, killing herdsmen and their cattle and sheep.
