Al-Ahsa, Al-Hasa or Hadjar (Arabic: Ahas? al-A?s??, local al-Ahas?) is a historic old oases in the east of Saudi Arabia, whose name is used by the government of Al-Ahsa. Situated about 60 km from the Persian Gulf coastline.

The Al-Ahsa is part of the area that is famous for its high level of craftsmanship, in particular "Bisht", the geographic provincial area of Al-Bahrain in the east of Arabia, which covers the east coastline of the Arabian Peninsula to the UAE, Oman, and also the islands of Awal (now Bahrain). Al-Ahsa was the most important town in Al-Bahrain County, accounting for the largest part of the local populace and supplying the largest part of rural production.

The early story is similar to that of Eastern Arabia. The Karmatian commander Abu Tahir al-Jannabi[4] controlled the area in 899 AD and proclaimed it an Abbasid Caliphate of Baghdad. With about 1000 residents, Al-Hasa became the ninth biggest town in the world with 100,000 people. 5 ] In 1077, the Karmatian state of Al-Ahsa was toppled by the Uyuns.

Later Al-Ahsa came under the reign of the Bahrani Usfurid family, followed by their relative, the Jabrides, who became one of the most powerful forces in the area, recapturing the Bahrain Isles from the Lords of Hormuz. In 1670 the Ottomans were driven out of Al-Ahsa[7] and the area came under the reign of the chieftains of the Banu Khalid people.

Al-Ahsa, together with Qatif, was annexed to the Wahhabi emirate of Diriyah in 1795, but in 1818 came back to Ottoman rule with an incursion ordered by Muhammad Ali of Egypt. Banu Khalid were reinstated as the ruler of the area, but in 1830 the emirate of Nejd took over the area.

At the beginning of the year, Major John More, the UK official in Kuwait, and Ibn Saud from Saudi Arabia agreed to clarify the Kuwait-Najd borders. Crude-industry reserves were found near Dammam in 1938[11][12], which led to a swift modernisation of the area. Today, Al-Hasa includes the world's biggest traditional oilfield, the Ghawar-Feld.

Al- Hasa is known for its palms and date. Al- Hasa has over 30 million palms that grow over 100,000 tonnes of date every year. As in Ummsaba'ah, Al-Harrah and Al-Khadod, the number of fresh water fountains and wells in the Al-Hasa haven ranges from 60 to 70. The Al-Hasa area is full of archeological monuments that testify to the importance of this area.
