Al-Ma'an is a geographical nisba, or byname, referring to the city of Ma'an in southern Jordan, southwest of the capital Amman. Ma'an existed in the early 7th century, as documented in The Life of the Prophet Muhammad, when a Christian governor of Ma'an named Farwa ibn Amr al-Judhami converted to Islam and was later crucified by the Byzantines.
