Hejaz (Arabic: الحجاز al-Hijāz), formally known as the Hashemite Kingdom of Hejaz (Arabic: المملكة الحجازية الهاشمية al-Mamlakah al-Hijāziyyah al-Hāšimiyyah), is a country in Western Asia stretched on the west coast of Arabian Peninsula. It is bordered by Transjordan to the north, by Saudi Arabia to the east, by the South Arabian Federation in the south, and by the Red Sea to the west.

Hejaz is the birthplace of Islam and the kingdom is sometimes called "the Land of the Two Holy Mosques" in reference to Al-Masjid al-Haram (in Mecca), and Al-Masjid al-Nabawi (in Medina), the two holiest places in Islam. Mecca, the capital of Hejaz, is also the seat for the Shariffian Caliphate, the most supreme religious and political authority among the Muslim universal community (ummah).
