No, he meant Habar Yonis clan of Isaaq had a Geri Koombe mother. Hence the name Habar Yonis, from Aba Yonis (Geri Koombe).Oh, I must have misunderstood, I thought you said Geri Koombe was the same Bah as Habar Gidir.
It sounded strange to me but stranger things have happened.
HG is 8 subs:According to Wikipedia:
"Habar Gidir (Madarkicis) Hiraab one of the sons of Hiraab. He had two wives. Raarey gidir Karanle & Caasho karshe wadalaan. With Raaray Gidir Karanle he had three children named Ayr(the eldest of all), sifaadle and Suruur. His other wife Asha Karshe Wadalaan bore him two children named siciid (Sacad) and Saleeban. Asha died and he pled with Raaray Gidir to raise and care for his children from Asha as if they were her own. She obliged to his wish and raised them as her own. Madarkicis Hiraab's gratitude toward her kind act is eternally shown in how his descendants are not named after him but Raaray Gidir. This is the origin story for where the name Habar Gidir stems from."
That is what i've heard too.
Though I thought there were only 4 Habar Gidir subclans, I have never heard of "sifaadle" before.
