Jizan is the smallest province of Saudi Arabia. It stretches some 300 km along the southern Red Sea coast, just north of Yemen. It covers an area of 11,671 km² and a population of 1,186,139 (2004 census). The capital is the city of Jizan. The province includes over 100 islands in the Red Sea. The Farasan Islands, Saudi Arabia's first protected area, are home to the endangered Arabian gazelle and, in winter, migratory birds from Europe.
The name Jazan came from Jaza Al-Jan: in Arabic the punishment of jinn by the time of the King Solomon. Then it received another name Al-Mekhlaf Al-Sulaymani, the ancient covenant which was done by Sulayman Bin Taraf Bin Abduljad Al-Hakami, the leader of Hakam there. Hakam is a tribe that comes from Qahtan. Many of this tribe had lived in Damascus and it had good relations with the Abbasids. And this is not 100% true . Source: Wikipedia.org.
