Arain is a Muslim Pakistani tribe involved mostly in agriculture. In Pakistan the population of Arains exceed over 15 millions. Arain originally were one of the semitic races that came to the South Asia from west. However, majority of Arain today might not be descendants of those Arain but in fact people with same profession (i.e. farming).

There are large numbers of Arain living in all areas of Pakistan, mostly in Punjab province, and major cities like Lahore, Multan, Islamabad, Karachi and Faisalabad. General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq former president of Pakistan was also Arain.

It is believed the Arain word is derived from the Arabic name Ar-Ra'i, "The shepherd", a title indigenous to Arabia.
