Sheikh Isaaq has often been given an Arabian lineage but this lineage is the same as that of Yusuf AlKawnayn. His true origins are largely unknown.Written By: James Dahl
These two sons, Abdirahman and Ayub, are in Magado family uterine and so are the sons of Magado as with Ismail(garxajis) and Mohamed (Arab). Abdirahman is infact the youngest son of Magado uterine side, and Subeer-al-Awal(first Subeer in Arabic) is the son of Abdirahman himself and they are not the same person as the author stated. Abdirahma got married to a woman of an Ashraf clan called Suleykha from Awaliya family or subclan in Ethiopia and she produced this son for him. Anyone needing more information on this has to go and visit the ancestral coastal town of Maydh near Erigavo where they will get all Isaaq's archives for more information.Written By: nassir
James, you said that Sheikh Ishaq abtirsi(lineage) is same as that of Sheikh Yussuf Kowneyn and therefore Sheikh Ishaq's origin is unknown (fake). Let me correct you, it is the other way round and the origin of Sheikh Y. Kowneyn is unknown as he does not have any children he left behind any where in the world and there is no book or Archive left behind by him as to the genealogy or abtirsi of his. As for Isaaq, he left behind a nation of 3.2 million people and his archive hand-written by him exists for facts, this can be found in his burial monastery in Mayd. There are some people out there who are trying to paint our ancestor's history with brush full of shit but they will never succeed in the presence of 3.2 million. By the way James, you look to be naive or rather one-sided to be a historian or researcher by reaching a pretty premature and unrealistic conclusion of such thing without investigating further enough to the discrepancy of the fact and as to who really owns this lineage, therefore you need to go to a college to study enough your field of profession before you can try to take up a real research of the field. One needs re-educating themselves here to evaluate the standard of their knowledge and educational background.Written By: nassir
"The salient doubt suggested by this genealogy is the barbarous
nature of the names. A noble Arab would not call his children
Jirhajis, Awal, and Rambad."
"His informants and mine differ, therefore, toto ccelo. According to
some, Dirr was the father of Aydur"
"Lieut. Cruttenden applies the term Edoor (Aydur) to the
descendants of Ishak, the children of Jirhajis, Awal, and Jailah."
"The Tomal or Handad, the blacksmiths, originally of Aydur race,
have become vile by intermarriage with serviles. They must now
wed maidens of their own class, and live apart from the community :
their magical practices are feared by the people the connection of
wits and witchcraft is obvious and all private quarrels are traced
to them. It has been observed that the blacksmith has ever been
looked upon with awe by barbarians on the same principle that made
Vulcan a deity."
