Did they exist before Islam and our conversion, or are they an invention after we became Muslims?

The reason I ask is the even tribes that traditionally did not claim Arab descent have a lot of Arab names dotted in their abtirsi and after a few hundred years the abtirsi comes to an abrupt end. Surely, if we had clan before Islam the abtirsi should go on and on even past our Islamisation?
 
I'm sure there were clans in pre-islamic Somalia. However, some even claim that Samaale himself came from Arabia, which is puzzling? Its most likely false.
:hmm:
Probably our forefathers were busy re-writing our history to eliminate any link to our pre-islamic past.
