Fadel (properly Uled-Fedala), a historic Berber tribe of Algeria, province of Constantine, south-west of Batna; occupies the wooded slopes of the Aures mountains, where rises the Wed-Fedala, an affluent of the Biskra named from this tribe. The Fadels are mentioned by El-Bekri (11th century), and were formerly very powerful, but are now reduced to less than 2,000 souls.

“It is most profitable, it is blessed, to be always looking beyond second causes in all our trials and distresses, and to discern the Lord's hand, in infinite love and wisdom, appointing all. For this brings the soul into a state of resignation and tranquility at least, if not of holy Joy.”
–Robert Hawker, Poor Man’s Commentary, Psalm 17
