The Taymani are a Persian speaking Aymāq tribe in west central Afghanistan, related to Tajiks and Hazaras. However, some southern groups of Taymani have adopted Kandahari Pashtun language and culture.

Taymani usually deny they are Aymaq and feel affinity with Pashtuns, although their Pashtun neighbors identify them as Aymaq.
