THE ISAAQ DIR CLAN OF SOMALIA: WHY ISSAQ IS DIR

SEE UNITED NATIONS SOMALI GENENEOLOGICAL CHART SHOWING DIR (SOMALI CLANS)ABOVE LINK

This paper is a response to a paper circulated on the net called "Somaliland protests being called Northern Dir" as a Dir man and a Somalilander I would like to set the record straight and correct the author of this paper. This is the body of the E- mail I sent him.


SHEIKH ISAAQ BIN AHMED (MOHAMMED) HINIFTIRE

Geneology of Isaaq:

Sheikh Isaaq was the eldest son of Mohammed or Ahmed which is the same name since the holy prophet of Islam Mohammed was also Ahmed (SAW). Sheikh Isaaq was the eldest son of Sheikh Mohammed Xiniftire Mahe Dir. The Isaaq clan are directly related to the Bimaal , Baajimaal, Quranyow Mohammed Xinifter ( a branch of the Garre of NFD and Ethiopia) and Dabruube clans who directly descend from Dir through the line of Mahe Dir.
Isaaq Suclans
Sheikh Isaaq married one wife and had four sons with Magaado and an had four more sons with an Absyssinian Ethiopian wife Habar Habuush

Isaaq and their relationships to Southern Dir

The Mahe Dir clans and the Isaaq when in Southern Somalia act as such and many Isaaq pay the Diya ( Mag) with the above clans and they receive direct protection as cousins. Moreover, when the SNM came into existence it found most of its non-Isaaq support first from the Southern Xinifter Mahe Dir clans like Biymaal subclan Gadsan and also the non Xiniftire clans who are Mahe or other Dir groups. As a matter of fact, the Mahe Dir clans adopted in 1991 the Isaaq founded movement's name SNM adding just Southern. The Southern Somali National Movement (SSNM) was the leading Southern Dir political movement. Later the Isaaq led SNM whose chairman was Abdirahman Tuur (Habar Yonis) and the SSNM led by Abdi Warsame Isaaq of the Bimaal Gadsan Mohammed Xinifter merged with General Aideed's SNA Somali national Allience along with Omar Jess an Ogadeen general.
Somalis Universally View Isaaq as Dir
The Somalis universally consider the Isaaq as Dir and they Isaaq identifies themselves as such when in Southern Somalia. When the Barre goverment collapsed in 1990, most Southern Dir were seen in Mogadisho diffrent areas rescuing fleeing Isaaq and those who remained were protected by Dir millitias even without the asking of the Isaaq. Western scholars of Somalia all acknowledged that the Isaaq were Dir ; however, most cited that the Isaaq following the led of the Darood adopted a fictious Arab geneology.
Citation: What Western Scholars Say about
All the major clans Somalis including the Dir, Hawiye and Rahaweyn in the past emphasized their Quraish pedigree by claiming direct descent from Aqiil Ibnu Abu Taalib whom they claim arrived with Ja'far Ibnu Abu Taalib in the first Hijra 615 A.D, the Dir claim that seven years after this contact one Aqiil Ibn Abu Talib returned to the Horn of Africa and fathered Hiil Samaale the founding father of all Somali clans.
For some odd reason baised western scholors exaggerated the Darood, Isaaq, Sheeikhal and Ajuuran clans of Somalia while ignoring the older and similar claims of the older Somali clans like the Rahanweyn and Dir-Hawiye.
I.M Lewis's books on Somalia all acknowledge the Isaaq's Dirness and he even draws the charts showing that Isaaq are direct lineal descendents of the Dir clan.
Moreover I M Lewis wrote, " All Somali pride in their purported Arab ancestory", and this include the Hawiye and Rahanweyn, even though he notes the recent increase of this claim amoung the Darood, Sheikha, and Ajuuran Hawiye clan.
I.M Lewis
I M Lewis states, "all Somalis regard the Isaaq as lineal descendents of Dir" and he notes their recent development of ,"independent agnatic descent from Arabia. (P-142, Nomadic Democracy)
I.M Lewis states, " strictly speaking the Isaaq are derived from the Dir, who together with the Hawiye are linked as "Irir" at a higher level of genelogical grouping." In his book, Understanding Somali and Somaliland Society : Culture History and Society-Ioan M Lewis P- 4

Richard Burton
In his book, The first Foot Steps 1846 wrote, " the Isaaq, Gadabuuris, Barsuuk, and Issas of Somalia are all of Dir origin. He spells Dir as "Dur or Tir".Richard Burton,wrote:
The old and pagan genealogies still known to the Somal, are Dirr, Aydur, Darud, and, according to some, Hawiyah. Dirr and Aydur, of whom nothing is certainly known but the name10, are the progenitors of the northern Somal, the Eesa, Gudabirsi, Ishak, and Bursuk tribes. Darud Jabarti 11 bin Ismail bin Akil (or Ukayl) is supposed by his descendants to have been a noble Arab from El Hejaz, who, obliged to flee his country, was wrecked on the north-east coast of Africa, where he married a daughter of the Hawiyah tribe: rival races declare him to have been a Galla slave, who, stealing the Prophet’s slippers12, was dismissed with the words, Inna-tarad-na-hu (verily we have rejected him): hence his name Tarud ([Arabic]) or Darud, the Rejected.13 The etymological part of the story is, doubtless, fabulous; it expresses, however, the popular belief that the founder of the eastward or windward tribes, now extending over the seaboard from Bunder Jedid to Ras Hafun, and southward from the sea to the Webbes14, was a man of ignoble origin.


Journal of African history: Volume 3,Roland Anthony Oliver, J. D. Fage - 1962 "Thus while the Isaaq regard themselves as a separate clan-family tracing their agnatic origins directly to Arabia and only acknowledge a connexion by marriage with the Dir, other Somali regard them as of full Dir affiliation"

Encyclopaedia Aethiopica: He-N - Page 194 ,Siegbert Uhlig - 2007 - 1211 pages writes," Isaaq /*Dir) is one of the most important / Somali clans and is formed by the /'Habar Awal - Sacad Muuse (Sacad Muuse) and cIisa Muuse (Ciisa Muuse) ... contin Garxajis and Arap

The invention of Somalia - Page 251 Ali Jimale Ahmed - 1995 - 265 pages -
intangible culture, the emergence of the Darood and the Isaaq seems quite clearly to have gone along with a shift in religious belief. The Darood and Isaaq differentiated themselves from their historical Dir ancestry by each claiming an Arab ancestary"...

In the classical poem Guba the Isaaq are Identified as Dir and their poet states:
In Gube a Dhulbahante Darood poet Ali Adan, who was trying to play the Ogadan and Isaaq against each other stated:
Doqonkii Ogadeen doollo laga qaad
Loo diid Dannood iyo hadii uu dagi lahaa Ciide
Niman baa xukuma dalkoodi iyo labadii daaroode
Habar Yonis bey uga durkeen dagaladoodiye
The Ogadeen Poet replyed:
Iidoor (Isaaq) Dir weeye hadduu duullan soo kiciyo
Dunji Habar Magaadle ba hadduu , Dabarka soo gooyo
Dumbukhiyo rasaastii hadduu debacsaanuu siiyo (British)
The Iidoor Isaaq are of the Dir clan, and if they launch a raid against us the Ogaadeen
An id all the Dir Habar Magaadle take their ropes and join them.
Then who is equal to me in descent and is to help me ?
http://www.golkhatumo.com/guba/ Silsiladii Gabayada Guba
Isaaq Reply to Guba Poem
In reply to the Ogadeen and the Dhulbahante, the great Isaaq, Habar Yonis, poet who was from the sub clan of Beyle Ugaadhyahan, Mr. Cismaan Beyle, answered to the Darood poets and he agrees with the Ogaaden poet and states, "Yes,the Isaaq are Dir". And all the Land belongs to the Dir, who is the Darood to claim this land. Isn't Darood the Stranger I found in the wilderness and whom I gave Donbiro and welcomed him when he was nothing.

GABEEYGII GUBA- Isaaq waa Dir

Gabeyga guba waa gabey uu nin ka bilaawday nin Dhulbahante ah oo rabay in uu Ogaadeen iyo Isaaq isku diro, oo dagaal ka dhex oogo labadaan beelood ee wada daga.

Ninkii Dhulbante oo ahaa CALI AADAN (Dhulbahante) Ogaadeen waa doqomo ayuu yiri oo Isaaq ayaa doolo (baad) ka qaada.


Erayadii CALI AADAN (Dhulbahante)

Doqonkii Ogaadeen ahaa Doollo laga qaadye

Nimanbaa dalkoodiyo xukuma labadi daaroode

Ninkii Ogaadeen isagoo xanaqsan ayuu gabey ku jawaabey oo yiri:

1. Isaaq (Idoor) waa Dir oo yaa la da'ah, Isaaq waa Dunji (Sinji Habar Magaadle). Ninkaan Direed ee i dilay adaa iga daran oo Darood ila sheeganaya (Isaaq Dir weeyee hadduu duulan soo kiciyo
Dunji Habar Magaadluhu hadduu dabarka soo gooyo
Dunbuq iyo rasaastana hadduu debecsanuu siiyo)


Aday dilaye goormaa Isaaq Doollo iga qaaday
Maxaa libinta Daarood lahaa dabacayuun siiyey
Hadday Dubaxul uga heesayaan dacarba waan siine


Miyey haatan daab iyo ul iyo kaga cabbaan dawlis
Dusha daalis oo dibi dhaloon loo danbarinaynin
Oo kii lahaa diideybay sidig ka doontaaye
Kuwan derisnay dooxeer haddaan sebenka daduunsho


Waxa adiga duug kaaga noqon yayga degi waayey
Gabdhaha doonnan dadabtan dhisniyo xidid dariiqaynta
Kuwaan dihannay diricay dhaleen waa dareeemadae
Muslinka hayga didin yaan ibleeys dawyo kaa ridine


Darka jabay dilaalkio dhulkuu dabadku meeraayo
Deeqii Illaahay halkuu xuliyey daadkiisa
Ii daa dugaag iyo Hartay igaga deyraanne


Iidoor Dir weeyee hadduu duulan soo kiciyo
Dunji Habar Magaadluhu hadduu dabarka soo gooyo
Dunbuq iyo rasaastana hadduu debecsanuu siiyo


Horta yaa la da'a wayla yaab dawyadaad xuliye
Ogaadeen ka daan iyo ka daan doolo soo gudubye
Diinkaan akhriyey way imaan dooy raggii jiraye
Dunji maalintaa waxad qabtaan waan u daahirinne

Markii ay sheeko halkaas mareyso ayaa nin Habar Yonis Yawle la yiraahdo oo katirsan beesha Beyle Ugaadhyahan ee Cismaan Beyle.
Gabeygii soo galay oo u jawaabay Daroodka isagoo sheeganaya:

1.Isaaq waa Dire hadii uu duulan soo qaado

2. Daaroodkana in uu dalka soo dajiyay Isaaq oo Dir ah oo ay Gabadh Doonbiro la yiraahdo siiyeen


Transitionsal Goverments of Somalia


In the past 10 years since Somalia was lacking a central goverment several reconciliation conferences were held in Cairo, Djibouti, Kenya and Ethiopia between 1993-2009 and all conferences a formula of 4.5, which means the four major clans Dir, Darood, Hawiye, Rahanweyn will share goverment equally. Thousands of Isaaq Ministers, Members of Parliment and Guurti or Clan elders from Habar Awal, Habar Jeclo, Habar Yonis and Arap joined these conferences and they all consider themselves as Dir men and women.
Isaaq scholars from the great Musse Galaal a mentor and silent contributor to all that I. M Lewis writes and well know, respected ex-police chief of Somalia, Mr. Jama Ghalib both respected their Dir heritage and always defended their Dir-ness. Jama Ghalib, in his book, " The Cost of Dictatorship", acknowledge the crucial financial and membership support the Isaaq dominated, SNM received from all Southern Dir groups, especially, the Mahe Dir, Mohammed Hiniftire, subclans which the Isaaq is a member of, like the Gadsan, Biimaal, Bajimaal, and Surre clans of Ethiopian region. Also, Jama Ghalib, acknowledged the Hawiye contributions.

The official UN and Kenyan Records listed over 1000 prominent Isaaq clan elders who joined the Somali Reconciliation conference in Kenya and this is one of the official lists at the begining of the conference:

Most of these Isaaq were business owners and others who lived in Mogdisho for a long time. Why would these prominent men claim, die, and fight along side their Dir distant cousines like the Bimaal,Suure-Cabdalle and Qubeys, Mandaluug and other northern Dir clans like the Issas and Gadabuursi. The Southern Dir Groups like the Suure ( Qubeys and Cabdalle) who where heavely armed where the direct protectors of many Isaaq and other unarmed groups in Mogadisho and there were numerous clashes between Xamar Moorayan and the Suure millitias backed by northern Dir and Bimaal Gadsan when several vehicles were stoled from the Dir.

Muuse Galaal Somali Isaaq Historian

The world renowned Somali History scholar, Mr. Musse Galaal, who is Habar Jeclo, invited dozens of Somali Dir shortly before his death in Saudi Arabia in the 1980's and after one of the guests asked him about I. M Lewis and the false propaganda of Isaaq Arabness he spread. Galaal replied, I.M Lewis is a mentor of his but he never agreed about how he distorted Isaaq history. Galaal added, we are all in an Arab country and the richest Arab country where Islaam was born but I will tell you today I am more convinced of my Dirness then ever and I doubt more then ever that all Somalis share a single thing with the Arabs.
The Dir witness said, " I asked Oh Galaal, my cousine, why do you say this. Galaal said, "look at the Arabs and look at us, especially, us, the Dir Aji, we never eat grasshoppers, a Somali would never eat even the liver, heart, or lowly portions like the tounge of goat or cow. Nor would a Somali eat Lizards ( muusa cagaleey), or penis of goat or sheep or in the past work for or intermarry with any outsiders yet the Arabs do all of that. How can we be of Arab when we dont share none of this, Walaahay we the Somalis are more noble then they, and the noblest of Somalis of all are the Dir Aji from whom we all got our noble and pure manners." This is two or three weeks before he passed away.



Another interesting story which shows the deep kinship between Southern and Northern the Great poet Hadrawi was in Dolo, Luuq, and Xuddur areas in the early days of the SNM struggle and I was surprised for this was suicidal for such prominent figure in 1988. He freely moved in and out of Bakool, Gedo, and Bardheere areas and made many speeches I was told and he was accompanied by his local kinsman. A good friend of main even narrated to me a long poem he made in order to create two feuding Dir groups in Ethiopian Somali border. This shows that he felt as though he was at home just like in Burco or Hargeysa which he could not go at that time. As a matter of fact that region still has a SSNM or Southern SNM movement which unites the major Mahe Dir Clans, Suure, and Madaxweyn Dir in that region.


The fatuh al Habash mentions the Habar Magadle (Maha Dir) by name as one group which Gureey try to draw into his camp.Nevertheless, the Habar Awal and Habar Yonis joined the Gurey jihaad. For Example, the Makaahil of the Habar Awal was the son of an Amhara princesse who was broght back to Somali by a Habar Awal worrior. The Amhara princes asked her captor one favour which to name the first son. After she bore the son she named him Makahil "Micheal" the angel. As a matter of fact many Mahe Dir like the Habar xabuush or Habar Jeclo were also named in such a case. According to the Fatuh Al Habash, "the fierce and rebellious Isaaq, Issas, and Afar clans who lived close to these groups and was know as "Oda Cali" caused Guurey many problems because as soon as the attacked the Habash enemies and gained some booty they would return to their territorie this angered Imam Ahmed who wanted a displined army. Ali and Mataan a brothers in-law of Gurey and Ahmed Nuur a knephew or Gurey, who later married Gurey's wife Batiyo Delwambero(Dawmbiro). It is interesting to not The name Dalwambero.

IM Lewis mentions a episode in Axmed Gurey's campaign where he destroyed cities of Habar Magadle Dir in which the H.Magadle punished a Aba Yonis Group who complained to the Imaam. Also the H.Magaadle would join the Jihad and decide at a crucial moment to return to their homelands after getting all the Booty the wanted.

A very strange fact in Fatuhal Habash is the Mareexan Sade Daarod Clan are mentioned to be part of the Habar Magaadle and this is one reason the Darood would never translate the Fatuhal Habash even though the Darood claim the Imaam Ahmed was a Darood. I will post a rebuttal of this because the Darood ancestor Ismaail Jabarti died in 1679 while the battles of Ahmed Gurey took place in 1500. Both IM lewis and other scholars leaked this fact that Mareexan are considered a Habar Magaadle clan in the Fatuuh Al Habash because these western scholars would not set foot in Somalia especially when Siad Barre was in Power. I will put up the quotes and author it is on Google books

The Arab Factor


Abwaanadaas ku gabyey gabayada kore dhammaan waxay cadeeyeen isir ahaan ciday yihiin oo ah Daarood…

Madmadoow ma gelin xaajadaa soo mudh-bixiseene
Mabsuud buu ka yahay reer Isaaq meelu joogaba'e

Abwaanadaan iyaguna waxay cadday nayaan isir raac ciday yihiin oo ah Dir labada gabay ee Axmed Ismaaciil Diiriye gabaygiisa waxaad ka dhan dhansan kartaa ehelinimada ay isku reerka yihiin Ciise(Ciise oo qabiil Dir ah) oo uu marna walaal tinimo ku tilmaamay marna wada dhalasho oo Abwaanadu gabay ahaan inta badan u isticmaalaan wada dhalashada iyo walaaltinimada dhanka abtarsiinyaha…

Qamaan Bulxan (Ogaadeen)

Iidoor Dir weeyee hadduu duulan soo kiciyo
Dunji Habar Magaadluhu hadduu dabarka soo gooyo
Dunbuq iyo rasaastana hadduu debecsanuu siiyo

Gaygaan waxaa tiriyey Abwaan Daarood ah oo ku tilmaamaya Isaaq inay Dir yihiin mana dhicin gabyaa Isaaq ah oo beeniya gabaygaas Dir nimada ku tilmaamay waxaase dhacday in Gabyaa la Oran Jiray Yawle xaqiijiyey oo ku gabayey, gabay aanan helin hal sadar ka badan oo ahaa… Isaaq waa Dire e hadduu duulaan soo kiciyo…

Isku soo wada duuboo waxaad ka garan kartaa gabayadaas isir raaca ay kala ahaayeen Qabiilada (Harti, Ogaadeen, Abuskuul), iyo Isaaq oo kala ahaa Daarood iyo Dir… waxaa kaloo jirta in markii Somalidu shirar ama wax qaybsi isugu timaado in beesha Isaaq ku qayb qaadato qabiil ahaan qabiilka la yiraahdo Dir oo ah qabiilka Abwaanadii hore ku gabyeen in Isaaq yahay qabiilkaas. Wax garadka, Isimada Beelaha Somaliyeed oo aan ahayn Isaaq markaad waydiisid Qabiilka beesha Isaaq reerka ay isir raac galaan waxay kuu cadaynayaan in Isaaq isir ahaan yahay Dir. Haddii aad odayashaasha iyo wax garadka beesha Dir waydiiso cidda Isaaq isir ahaan galo waxay si toosa oo aan gabasho lahayn kuugu sheegayaan inuu galo Isaaq Habare Xiniftire Maahe Dir.

Aqoonta loo lahaa beelaha Isaaq isir raacoodu markuu ahaa Dir waxaa ayaamahaan danbe soo shaac baxday oo yar iyo wayn beesha qabiilka Isaaq shaaciyeen in ay yihiin Carab oo ka soo jeedaan Haashimiyiin arintaasi waxay keentay jaah wareer aan la garanayn cid la rumaysto Isaaqa hadda sheegaya inay yihiin Carab, ma odayadii hore ee Isaaq oo sheegayey inay yihiin Dir, ma wax garadka iyo Isimada beelaha kale ee sheegaya in Isaaq yahay Dir!!!.

Waxaad ka garan kartaa Dadka taariikhda wax ka qora oo aan ahayn Somalida inay jaah wareer ka qaadeen oo qoraaladooda laba bog oo ay isku mid kaga hadlayaan aadan ka helayn mararka qaar waxaad arkaysaa hal qaafiyad (baaragaraaf) oo iska hor imanaya oo marna leh Dir marna leh Carab, waxaadba ila eegtaan labadaan qoraa ee Biritishka u dhashay…

Richard Burton oo ka qoray Isaaq wuxuu buugisa taalaabooyinkii koowaad 1846 ku qoray….

In sheikh Isxaaq oo ka soo jeeda xatramuut kayimi dhulkiisii isagoo ay weheliyaan 44 shiikh magaalada la yiraahdo Met(Myadh) oo ah meesha uu hadda ku aasan yahay, wuxuu guursaday naag xor ahayd oo la oran jiray Magaden(Habar Magaado) waxayna u dhashay Garxajis Awal and Arab; waxaa kaloo wax udhashay islaan adoon ahayd waxayna u dhashay jeclo(Habar Jeclo sambur(sambuur) iyo Rambad. Kadib qabiilooyinka waa wayn ee habar garxijis iyo Awal ayaa waxay doorbideen magaca habar oo sheegaya ama tilmaamaya Hooyo mar haddii aan la garanayn aabahihii(waa siduu u qoray).

GABAYADA ISAAQ KU SHEGAYAAN CIDA AY YIHIIN OO AY TIRIYEEN AFTAHANADA BEESHA ISAAQ


GABAYADA ISAAQ KU SHEGAYAAN CIDA AY YIHIIN OO AY TIRIYEEN AFTAHANADA BEESHA ISAAQ

Abwaanadaas ku gabyey gabayada kore dhammaan waxay cadeeyeen isir ahaan ciday yihiin oo ah Daarood…

Ismaaciil Cigaal Bulaale(isaaq)

Adaa Dir iyo Daarood dhex dhigay dab iyo baaruude

Dacar gelisey reerihii ahaa ul iyo diirkeede

Mugga haatan dirir uumiyuhu waa is dilayaaye

Maxamuud Dheeg (Isaaq)

Dir iyo Irir baanu nahay labada daamoode

Dabatada faraha dheer leh iyo Diini iyo Boontu

Meeshay kasoo dalabsadeen yeyga degi wayday.



Axmed Ismaaciil Diiriye (Isaaq)

Miisaannay Ciisow tixahaad madalka keenteene
Macaan baa Ilaahay ka dhigay Malabki Doocaane
Dhegtii maqashay oo idili way mahad naqaysaaye
Madmadoow ma gelin xaajadaa soo mudh-bixiseene
Mabsuud buu ka yahay reer Isaaq meelu joogaba'e
Waad mahadsantiin dhalashadaad muruq u yeesheene

Axmed Ismaaciil Diiriye (Isaaq)

Na soo gaadhe Ciisow tixahaad soo gudbinayseene
Geeraarradiinii hellnay iyo gabayadiinniiye
Una guuxnay hawraarta guud, hiilna loo garaye
Maansadu godkii ay lahayd maydun gees marinne
Alle waydin garansiiyey oo gob iyo caadkeede
Garna waad u leediin tolkiin inad gargaartaane
Gacmihii walaalaha ahaa waysku gunuddeene



Abwaanadaan iyaguna waxay cadday nayaan isir raac ciday yihiin oo ah Dir labada gabay ee Axmed Ismaaciil Diiriye gabaygiisa waxaad ka dhan dhansan kartaa ehelinimada ay isku reerka yihiin Ciise(Ciise oo qabiil Dir ah) oo uu marna walaal tinimo ku tilmaamay marna wada dhalasho oo Abwaanadu gabay ahaan inta badan u isticmaalaan wada dhalashada iyo walaaltinimada dhanka abtarsiinyaha…

Qamaan Bulxan (Ogaadeen)

Iidoor Dir weeyee hadduu duulan soo kiciyo
Dunji Habar Magaadluhu hadduu dabarka soo gooyo
Dunbuq iyo rasaastana hadduu debecsanuu siiyo

Gaygaan waxaa tiriyey Abwaan Daarood ah oo ku tilmaamaya Isaaq inay Dir yihiin mana dhicin gabyaa Isaaq ah oo beeniya gabaygaas Dir nimada ku tilmaamay waxaase dhacday in Gabyaa la Oran Jiray Yawle xaqiijiyey oo ku gabayey, gabay aanan helin hal sadar ka badan oo ahaa… Isaaq waa Dire e hadduu duulaan soo kiciyo…

Isku soo wada duuboo waxaad ka garan kartaa gabayadaas isir raaca ay kala ahaayeen Qabiilada (Harti, Ogaadeen, Abuskuul), iyo Isaaq oo kala ahaa Daarood iyo Dir… waxaa kaloo jirta in markii Somalidu shirar ama wax qaybsi isugu timaado in beesha Isaaq ku qayb qaadato qabiil ahaan qabiilka la yiraahdo Dir oo ah qabiilka Abwaanadii hore ku gabyeen in Isaaq yahay qabiilkaas. Wax garadka, Isimada Beelaha Somaliyeed oo aan ahayn Isaaq markaad waydiisid Qabiilka beesha Isaaq reerka ay isir raac galaan waxay kuu cadaynayaan in Isaaq isir ahaan yahay Dir. Haddii aad odayashaasha iyo wax garadka beesha Dir waydiiso cidda Isaaq isir ahaan galo waxay si toosa oo aan gabasho lahayn kuugu sheegayaan inuu galo Isaaq Habare Xiniftire Maahe Dir.

Aqoonta loo lahaa beelaha Isaaq isir raacoodu markuu ahaa Dir waxaa ayaamahaan danbe soo shaac baxday oo yar iyo wayn beesha qabiilka Isaaq shaaciyeen in ay yihiin Carab oo ka soo jeedaan Haashimiyiin arintaasi waxay keentay jaah wareer aan la garanayn cid la rumaysto Isaaqa hadda sheegaya inay yihiin Carab, ma odayadii hore ee Isaaq oo sheegayey inay yihiin Dir, ma wax garadka iyo Isimada beelaha kale ee sheegaya in Isaaq yahay Dir!!!.

Waxaad ka garan kartaa Dadka taariikhda wax ka qora oo aan ahayn Somalida inay jaah wareer ka qaadeen oo qoraaladooda laba bog oo ay isku mid kaga hadlayaan aadan ka helayn mararka qaar waxaad arkaysaa hal qaafiyad (baaragaraaf) oo iska hor imanaya oo marna leh Dir marna leh Carab, waxaadba ila eegtaan labadaan qoraa ee Biritishka u dhashay…

Richard Burton oo ka qoray Isaaq wuxuu buugisa taalaabooyinkii koowaad 1846 ku qoray….

In sheikh Isxaaq oo ka soo jeeda xatramuut kayimi dhulkiisii isagoo ay weheliyaan 44 shiikh magaalada la yiraahdo Met(Myadh) oo ah meesha uu hadda ku aasan yahay, wuxuu guursaday naag xor ahayd oo la oran jiray Magaden(Habar Magaado) waxayna u dhashay Garxajis Awal and Arab; waxaa kaloo wax udhashay islaan adoon ahayd waxayna u dhashay jeclo(Habar Jeclo sambur(sambuur) iyo Rambad. Kadib qabiilooyinka waa wayn ee habar garxijis iyo Awal ayaa waxay doorbideen magaca habar oo sheegaya ama tilmaamaya Hooyo mar haddii aan la garanayn aabahihii(waa siduu u qoray).

Waasida uu qoraalkiisa udhigay Richard Burton, isagoo sii wata qoraalkiisii wuxuu qoray…

Haaji Shermaarke Ali Saalih of the Habar Yoonis clan of the Isaaq clan-family, exercising real power over Saylac and adjacent regions

. In 1854-55 when Lieutenant Richard Burton of the British India navy frequented the northern Somali coast, he found a Somali governor, Haaji Shermaarke Ali Saalih of the Habar Yoonis clan of the Isaaq clan-family, exercising real power over Saylac and adjacent regions. By the time of Burton's arrival, once-mighty Saylac had only a tenuous influence over its environs. The city itself had degenerated into a rubble of mud and wattle huts, its water storage no longer working, its once formidable walls decayed beyond recognition, and its citizenry


Haaji Shermaarke Ali Saalih accourding to Haji:

The Isaaq, Gadabuursi, Issa and Barsuuk tribes are all of Dir Origin as mentions in the First Foot Steps of Richard Burton

Another Example and Proof of the deep Cultural relations of the Southern Dir and especially the Bimaal, Suure Clans or Gadsan or Mandaluug Dir- do not only view the Isaaq/Gadabuursi/and Issas of the north as kinsman but even react violently and in solidarity with Northern Dir in times of Mogadisho war or even if other clans make negative statements about the Northerners. For instance the Mandaluug dont only view the Gadabuursi as their paternal kinsman but also have Reer Nuur and Makaahiil Lineages just like the Gadabuursi. Also the Madoobe Dir Southern Dir (Who are Ceelaye) view their Issas Kinsman in a similar manner.

Beelah Dir iyo Boqortoyoyinkii Hore --Suure
A new geneology of the Dir clan has recently appeared on the internet at the above address;However, another Dir man listed the following list. This List appeared on (Awad) home page. Please those of you who are familiar with the clan affiliations of the Dir help us in perfecting this list and add any corrections. Southern Dir point of veiw.

We ISAAQ are not dir. I don't know were you got all these fake evidance from, I am sure most ISAAQ people would agree. I agree we are brothers with Issa and Biyomal. Issa, Biyomal and Isaaq are the binu Ahmed brothers from Iraq. ISSAQ was an big scholar, but the ruler at that time thought he was a threat so he had to run away. first he ended up in Yemen,he had children there. So we got Yemani cousins. Then the ruler carried on threatening him, so he cross the sea and ended up in maydah Somaliland, his tomb is still there. When he arrived at somaliland he was greated and lived with the dir clan, he married a dir lady and a Afar lady. They both gave him 4 boys. Ahmed (Tol Jeclo), Ibrahim (Sanbuur), Maxamed (Imraan), and Muse (Habar Jeclo). His other wife gave bith to Ismail aka Garhagis (Habar Yoonis and Edigale), Ayub, Arab and Abdirahman(Habar Awal).

The Devastating Effects of the Ahmed Gurey Wars on Dir



In the 1400, the Christian Ethiopians attacked Muslim lands in Harrar, Haud, and as far as Zeila. The Dir which was the most powerful Muslim group confronted the Christian menance. The wars which lasted for hundreds of years destroyed many Dir Kingdoms including the Ifat and Awdal (Cadale) kingdoms. Which were ruled by a mixture of Dir and Afar-Adaris kings and produce the Dir Imam Axmed Ibrahim Geesi or Axmed Gurey and the greated Somali General Said Samaroone who was in charge of all the military operations of the Somalis in the hinterland of Somalia. Many Dir groups dispersed and fled South, West, and East into Somalia in this era. Many fled to Amuud in Northern Somalia and letter when Amuud was destroyed by the Amhara and they occupied Zaile killing the Dir King Shihab Din at Zaila Island were he is buried.

Imam Said Samroone lived in 1432 AD, when the Amhara crusaders conquered Somalia. Iman Said was the Muslim leader who led the Mandaluug Dir and when the imam was later fighting in the Western flank of the Guurey army he was injured at Dardarley.

The name Gadabuursi was given to his descendents at the last critical moment before he made a final stand to the Amhara at the mandaluug ancestral homeland of Amuud which the Amharas destroyed over 50,000 homes where excavated recently and the place was leveled with the ground 10, 000 thousands perished. At this dark moment, many Dir groups were dispersed all over Somalia and many powerful Dir kingdoms in Western Somalia and present day Ethiopia perished.


The name Gaada Biirsay means the one who collected the army or "chests" the name referred to the desperate effort of imam Samaroon Said to collect and muster the power of his kinsman against the infidels. Gaado means chest( shafka ama xabadka gaada ha i saarin oo kale).

The Gadabuursi latter suffered a devastating defeat and actually the present day Amuud which has a old cementary called Lafaruug was destroyed by the Amhara King. Also note, it was this period that the King Shihad a Diin buried in Zailac Island was killed. The Gudabuursi Dir and Issa Modoobe Dir never recovered from these devastating blows. They moved west while others moved to the North West. Many Dir groups moved from the North-West and towards the South.

For example, the Suure Dir have strong traditions that point to their arrival from West (Galbeed) in this era and they claim they lived in close proximity with the Issas. Also the Bimaal Dir vividly describe how their territories were once adjacent to the Issa and Isaaq. As a matter of fact, a whole branch of the Bimaal called the Gadsan still lives in the North West amongst the Ogaden and Habar Yonis. Moreover, many Mandaluug Dir from the Boorame region migrated to the South and today live among the Surre Dir and Bimaal.

Another Mohamed Hiniftire group, the Barsuug was similarly destroyed in the era of Ahmed Gurey wars.

The Magadle Dir were completely destroyed, except for the 10,000 or saw that survive in Cerigaabo. The Issas Madoobe Dir moved further west and north into Afar regions they installed a Madaxweyn Dir dynasty, the Wardiiq who was the ruling remnants of the Madaxeyn. Madigan, Gurgure and the Barsuug Dir fled west and were encircled by the Oromos- Many assimilated and the union formed a half cast Jarso.

The Isaaq Dir reconstituted as Maxamed (Axmed Xiniftire) new Habar alliences formed the Nacadoor,Mikidoor,Nabidoor and the Idoor all disappeared.

The Madaluug in Southren Somalia and the Biyamaal as well as The Fiq's Suure all point their Southern movement from Amuud region in the 1600's during the Axmed Guurey era. The Suure Dir who are as a matter of fact still in Hauda region and whom refer them self's as Fiqi's where the Her or sheikh associated with Awbarre/Buube/ Yusuf Barkad kowniin students who entered Mudug region at the time when the Ajuuran ruled at mereg and some served as Imams under one malakh Gareenow Xaasey.

The Suure Fiqi's, Biyamaal, Guure, and the Badimaal all entered the south. The Biyamal claim to have entered the Banadir area, a name meaning beynka direeb, in 1700's.

The Gurgure/Akisho cluster and reminders of Madaxweyn Dir conquered the Dira Dhabe " meeshu Diri Dhabe" ama waranka ka taagay. The Gurgure which is not their real name (Gurgure means trader hence the word Gorgortan - to bargain)

The Somali Dir clan (Beesha Direed)



The Somali Dir clan (Beesha dddddddDDireed)

The Dir is a Somali clan whose members live in Djibouti, Southern, Northern Somalia, NFD, Somali Region, and Shabeele/ Jubba regions. According to the Dir clan histories, Dir had four sons named Madahweyn, Mandaluug, Madoobe, and Mahe Dir; according to others Dir had a fifth son named Qaldho Dir.



The Somali people are composed of four major tribes. The Dir, Hawiye, Darod, and Rahanweyn make up the majority of Somalis. The Dir are the most ancient Somali clan, and they are the most widespread group. They primarily live in Djibouti as the Issa and Gadabuursi. The northern clans of the self-declared Somaliland, namely the Isaaq, Gadabuursi,and Issa are also all Dir. In Ethiopia, the Dir clans are also the most numerous Somali clan group.


Northern Dir


The Northern Somalis exclusively come from the Dir clan. The Isaaq are Mohammed Hiniftire Mahe Dir. While the Gadabuursi are also closely related to the Isaaq whom they share with the common ancestor Mohammed Hiniftire, the sub lineage they claim as their direct ancestor is called the Mandaluug. The third Northern clan, the Issas come from the Madoobe Dir. There are also other Dir groups like the Gurgure, Madigaan, Magadle, Akisho, and Layiile in smaller numbers in the Northern Somalia.

Real Isaaqboy your probably dark as the night. Be proud at your clan and Beesha Direed. You'll be gobsmacked when you get your DNA checked and realise it's not originally from Iraq :D . People like you have absolute no ounce of Somalinimo. I can understand why your selfhatred and selfworth is so low though. Just look at Somalis at the moment.

P,s, Isxaaq is Beesha Direed as an Isxaaq, I'm Mahe Dir. Beesha Direed waa nasab.
