Yemen and Ethiopia have a track-record of entangled relationships that go back to long before the advent of Islam. From the 3rd century onward, Abyssinia became increasingly more involved in Yemen ...
Anyways, most of these scholars from the Horn had the nisba al-Zaylaʿī, as well as the nisba al-Jabartī showing that they were Somali and even some from Mogadishu, though quite a few were also called Al-Habasha which I’m assuming to be converts to Islam through our proselytization or they were already in Yemen during the times of Aksum. These scholars and their descendants also seem to have had political influence and power in Rasulid Yemen’s society. It’s an interesting read.
