The Harla, also known as Harala, or Karanla, or Arla,[1] are an extinct ethnic group that once inhabited Djibouti, Ethiopia and northern Somalia. They spoke the now-extinct Harla language, which belonged to either the Cushitic[2] or Semitic branches of the Afroasiatic family.[3][4][5] There are existing books like "The Book of Obligations" (كتاب الفرائض) in Old Harari written roughly 500 years ago, when Hararis were referred to as "Harla" at that time as attested to in the Conquest of Abyssinia.[6]
