In 1895 AD, the Al-Hindiya district witnessed the creation of ten provinces or towns called (Qoul Maasheri), which are administered like sub-districts, and they were administratively linked to Al-Kifl sub-district. They were Hor Al-Dukhun, Abu Nafash, Harqa, Mesaideh, Al-Fattah, Kaabouri, Abu Rawiya, Manfhan, Eastern Mishurab, and Western Mishurab.


Hor al-Dukhn sub-district was created after raising its administrative degree into a sub-district in 1900, as its administrative link was disconnected from al-Hindiya district, and attached to the al-Najaf district.


The transferring of Al-Rughaila town's link from the Al-Najaf district to the Al-Shamiya district, which is administratively linked to the Diwaniyah district because of its geographical proximity and the overlap of its agricultural lands and clans in Al-Shamiya sub-district.
