The manjur (Arabic: ?‎) is a musical instrument used in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf but with East African origins. It is made of goat hooves attached to a cloth. It is performed by tying the instrument around the waist. The performer shakes his or her hip to create a rattle sound when the hooves collide with each other.

It is used in the fann at-Tanbura and zar performances.
