Bajir (alternatively Bajar or Bahar) was a minor deity worshiped by the pre-Islamic Arabian tribe Azd. In addition to being worshiped by the Azd, there is also indication that other neighbouring tribes such as Tayy and al-Qudaa might have revered the deity.

Mazin bin Gadhuba al-Tayy, a native of Omanmarker was said to have been the last custodian of the idol. During a sacrifice, Mazin is said to have heard a voice asking him to give up his faith in the idol and convert to Islam. Mazin is said to have destroyed the idol and dedicated the rest of his life to spread Islam in the region.
