My apologies. Facts makes me gun-shy by past bad experience..I never said the dinasty was samaale. Bro, you are knowledgeable but you miss many points because you have an agenda. I simply said that the Sultan who met ibn battuta was a non-arab somali. This doesn't disprove rer faqi's aeab ancestry, muslim dinasty were open to rulers from different backgrounds. Even today Reer Faqi are heavily somalized fo the point that many benadiris look almost 100% somali . How can an arab dinasty be assimilated by a nomadic population? It's pretty obvious that somalis came in contact with arab settelers and ruled with them as muslims.
However, a dynasty is assumed to be descended from a single individual, which you admit was an Arab. A non-Arab Somali, by Samaale definition, would not cut it, but a Somalized Arab would.
