Al-Hayat (Arabic: الحياة‎ "Life") is one of the leading daily pan-Arab newspapers, with a circulation of almost 300,000. It is the newspaper of record for the Arab diaspora and the preferred tribune for liberal intellectuals who wish to express themselves to a large public.

Though rather pro-West and pro-Saudi with respect to articles concerning the Arabian peninsula, it is quite open to various opinions concerning other regional questions. Al-Hayat prints in London, New York, Beirut, Jeddah, Damam and Riyadh. The newspaper has offices in Baghdad, Beirut, Damascus, Jerusalem, Cairo, Khartoum, Istanbul, Algeria, Paris, Vienna, London, New York, Moscow, Riyadh, Jeddah, Damam, Makkah, Medina and Washington.

The newspaper "is regarded as by far and away the best and most intensely read Arab newspaper", according to a 1997 article in The New York Times. A 2005 article in the same publication described Al-Hayat as a "decidedly Arab nationalist paper". The newspaper is distributed in most Arab countries, and most of its editors are from Lebanon, where Al-Hayat is very popular. It is more critical of the Saudi government than its main rival, Asharq Al-Awsat.
