The only reason I mentioned that he is my ancestor is to dispel the theory that he was an Arab. His history is documented. He was a Somali man who brought Islam to Harar.
If you don't believe me, take a look at this.
Abadir Musa Mahamed Warwaajecel Radimiir Amaanreer.
Check the references at the bottom of the article I copied. The info is there if you choose to believe he was an Arab, then I don't know what to tell you. I almost feel as if you don't believe Somali's coyld achieve greatness.
The only thing you can tell from that photo is that the author did not think he was Somali. It's clearly just something made up.Alright. But is he Somali or Arab?
I can definitely believe that Harar had an Islamic presence prior to Abadir's arrival. I'm not claiming everything in that article is correct as I did not write it. But Abadir regardless of whether he was an arab or a Somali, is known to have turned Harar into what it was.Luna,
I hate to disillusion you, but Harar has three mosques that date from the tenth century. The northern Somali clans form in the 12th-13th centuries and the wall around Harar was built in the 13th -16th centuries, not at one go. Ethiopia, today, has both Somali and Harari regional states. Harari is Ethio/Semitic; it is not Cushitic and not Somali. Have you done your DNA testing? Wasn't Jaberti an Arab?
This is interesting, except for the fact that the Portuguese didn't enter East Africa until 1498. (Note the quote marks; the author is probably referring to the Christian Ethiopian state.) :
"Abadir with a group of companions entered Harar in the mid-13th century with the primary purpose of proselytizing the local inhabitants. After marrying a Harari woman, he subsequently built the famous mosque, known as the Jamia site, which until this day stands tall albeit renovated."
"In 1234/35, Abadir and several of his companions left Harar for a pilgrimage to Mecca, where they stayed until 1279. Prior to his departure, Abadir handed the emirate over to his brother Abdurahim Musa WarWaje’le (Somali: Cabdiraxiin Muuse Warwaajecle) and some of his companions to govern the region in his absence.
Upon his return, he found the region devastated by the Portuguese and its inhabitants engulfed and weakened by internal strives. Some of his companions including his brother fell in the wars against the “Portuguese” or died in other ways. Abadir re-united and re-organized the demoralised Harari troops and pushed the Portuguese back beyond the boundaries of Zayla."
Ahmad Gurey wasn't until 1506-1543.

"Harar functioned as the capital of the Harari Kingdom from 1520 to 1568, became an independent emirate in the 17th century and was integrated into Ethiopia in 1887. From the late 16th century to the 19th century Harar was an important trade centre between the coast and the interior highlands and a location for Islamic learning.
Today Harar is the administrative capital of the Harari People National Regional State (HPNRS). The historic town has a traditionally functioning community, forming a complex social-environmental whole where each element has its symbolic and practical significance. The Harari people are distinguished by the continued cultural traditions and quality of their handicrafts, including weaving, basket making and book binding. The organization of the communities through traditional systems has preserved its social and physical inheritance and, significantly, the Harari language."

Clearly, I meant in the future we have our own issues to fix but once we solve them, we'll be back to us yall if being part of Somalia as an autonomous region is something you wantpirates, al shabab. civil wars, secession but u can help harar? bruh dont worry before we are extinct we shall bring peace to the region. hopefully a union in the region without clan b.s
The future is an independent ogaden that tames the oromo and begins a massive invasion into somalia right after it absorbs djbouti. It would thus be too difficult to call for Somali nationalism and thats when Harar comes in The dream of a Somali revival is all fine and dandy but its not realistic when AU, NATO members like turkey is setting up base in Somalia.Clearly, I meant in the future we have our own issues to fix but once we solve them, we'll be back to us yall if being part of Somalia as an autonomous region is something you want
