In Arabic, “Al” means “the” and “Hajar” means “stone”. So “Al Hajar” would be defined as “the stone”. Therefore, “Al Hajar Mountains” could mean “the stony mountains”.

The Al Hajar Mountains (Arabic: جبال الحجر‎, stone mountains) in northeastern Oman and also the eastern United Arab Emirates are the highest mountain range in the eastern Arabian peninsula. They separate the low coastal plain of Oman from the high desert plateau, and lie 50–100 km inland from the Gulf of Oman coast.

Geologically, Al Hajar Mountains are the continuation of the Zagros Mountains and were mainly formed in the Miocene and Pliocene as the Arabian Plate collided with and pushed against the Iranian Plate. These mountains are chiefly made of Cretaceous limestones and ophiolites.
