The Banu Isam were a Muslim Berber dynasty that ruled Ceuta for four generations. The town had been destroyed in a Kharijite rebellion, and was lying waste; sometime in the middle of the ninth century, Mājakas, chief of the Majkasa tribe, resettled it and founded a dynasty that ruled the town until the Umayyads took it over in 931.
Its kings were:
- `Isām, son of Mājakas
- Majīr, son of `Isām
- Ridā, son of `Isām (?-931), who paid allegiance to the Idrisids , but surrendered the city to the Umayyads when the Idrisid capital fell.
