its possible the controlled large portions of djibouti and parts of hararghe and what is now the somali region of ethiopia
Nah fam the somali region of ethiopia was its own nation for a long time. They are the ones that beefed with the habeshas the most of us all.

relax with the mordern borders sahib

likely the aksumites had controll of most of the highlands and parts of what is now dhibouti hararghe
Awbere district in the Faafan Zone and the Dembel district in the Sitti Zone, Jigjiga woreda and Faafan Zones in somali inhabited parts of what is now ethiopia
also the city of harar was inhabited by habesha people known as the hararis and somalis who lived outside and inside the city.

also to note it was the dir who converted to islam during the hegira as the lived in the lands of the aksumites, they later went on to convert the somalis to islam

Avalite modern-day Zeila was never under Axum Empire.

This is Axum Empire in Africa. They never reached the Somali peninsula either.



You need to understand Hijra didn't only come to Axum Empire. It also came to Somalia. There are even reports that some of the earliest muslim refuges not only settled in Zeila but also in Berbera, Ras Hafun and Mogadishu.





Besides, the guy who made this video is racist and doesn't know history at all. That period Somalia had major cities but mainly located on the coast and they were decentralized city-states governed by cheifs. They were known to be important international traders and seafarers. The name "Barbara" deprived from Berbera. Even Arabs & Persians used that name on us way before we contacted with the Romans. The reason is because Berbera was the metropolis and most powerful city-state out of the of Somali city-states at that time.

i wasnt talking about the somali seaboard they definately did not go anywhere near their, am talking about harar all the way through diri daw and most of djibouti was under cultral axumite controll so traditionally dir inhabited areas in ethiopia and possibly djibouti

makes sence since they are the first somalis to convert the arabs reached them first in ethiopia
