What does RABAD mean?

Rabad
Rabad, a Central Asian variant for the old Semitic and Arabic word rabat, taking the meaning of a suburb or outskirts of a medieval (7th-8th centuries) city in Central Asia including South Kazakhstan, Iran, and Afghanistan. A typical qalat (fortress) in Central Asia was based on a tripartite city model: citadel, shahristan (residential area inside the walls), and rabad (suburb). This city model is valid not only for Central Asian city typology, but is also used to describe similar city types elsewhere in the Islamic world.
