The city's population grew rapidly during the several centuries of Islamic rule, which resulted in an increased construction boom. This was accompanied by a rapid influx of people from across the Muslim world, particularly Iranian peoples and Arabs from Syria and Arabia. The metropolitan area has grown to encompass substantial areas on both banks of the Tigris River, as well as regions to the north and west (the latter including parts of Saladin Governorate). Baghdad is surrounded by five major belts of suburbs along with satellite towns that are closely integrated into urban life—these include Arab Jubour south-eastward behind Sadr City; Al-A'amiriya (or Alawite) in northeast Baghdad; Al-Rashidiyya just southwards behind Haifa Street; Karkh alongside its western bank opposite Zayuna district; plus Bayaa on its eastern bank opposite Kadhimiya. In recent years have been growing about faster development in those three districts that located at east side because they are newer than other districts due to their low populations before 2003 war .
