In medieval history, Ifriqiya or Ifriqiyah (Arabic: إفريقية) was the area of the coastal regions of what are today western Libya, Tunisia, and eastern Algeria. This area included what had been the Roman province of Africa.

In modern Arabic, the term simply means "Africa". It comes from the Latin term Africa.
