Wasit Province (Arabic: واسط Wāsit‎) (or Wasit Governorate) is a province in eastern Iraq. Its name comes from the Arabic word meaning "middle," as it lies along the Tigris about midway between Baghdad and Basra. Its major cities include the capital Al Kut, Al-Hai, and the city Wasit. Prior to 1976 it was known as Kut Province.

madain WAS part of Wasit until 1991. but when saddam redrew the boundaries to reduce the size of the southern "black" provinces, he gave parts of wasit to baghdad and parts to babil / diyala so now there is no direct border between wasit and baghdad anymore.
