GARRE DIR QURANYOW AND TUUF

The Garre Tuuf are of Gardheere Samaale one of the nin mythical founders of the Somali and sons of the Samaale the Quraanyow Maxammed Xiniftire are of the Dir clan and a son of Mahe Dir. Quraanyow are closely related to the Biimaal Maxammed, Isaaq,Suure and Mandaluug of the Southern Dir.



The Garre are a Somali pastoralist clan that live in Somalia, Kenya, and Ethiopia. They are sub clan of Digil clan family of Somalia. Almost all speak the Garre language, though it may be secondary to Maay.
The origins of the Garre are not clear, and there are some conflicting traditions among clan members. One tradition assumes that the Garre are of Samaale origin being descendants of Garedheere Samaale. However, there are other traditions that associate the Garre Tuuf to the Hawiye clan, while the Quranyow Mohamed have traditional links to the Dir subclans of Mohamed Xinfitire. Complicating matters further is the recent Garre association with the Digil subclan of the Rahanweyn, which would make the Garre closely affiliated with the Tunni and Jiido of the lower Jubba valley.
According to the legend, the first Garre ancestor, Aw Mohamed, crossed the Gulf of Aden into present day Somalia in 652AD. He was an Islamic scholar and a preacher. Because he was bearded, the Somalis named him "Garrow" or Gardheer." He married a Hawiye woman who sired two boys and a girl. The first-born was Tuff and Qur'an, the second born and the daughter was named Makka.
The Garre migrated to the Gedo region of Ethiopia where they met the Oromos who were expanding towards the Coast of Kenya in 13th century. They were defeated and subdued by the more populous Oromos. However, during the famous Kedh-gurai, the majority of Garres, under thee leadership of King Bulle Hussein and other members of the council of elders; Aw Anabo Osman, Aw Aloiw Hache, Aw Bakal Bashar and Aw Abbey Umur Mudhow Muss, migrated back to Somalia via Afmadhow and into Luq.
Another group, under Ali Abdi, migrated into Ethiopia and settled in "Did Libaan" or the Libaan's plains. These are the Garre-Libiin or Garre Ali Abdi.
The Garres who migrated to Somalia under the leadership of Aw Bulle Hussein are referred to as Garre Konfur. Many people doubt that the Tuff and Quran are children of the same father. However, this is historical fact. Geneologically, the Tuff Garre and Quranyowa Mohamed are brothers. One using the actual name of his father, while the other uses the nickname of his father
The Garre are divided into Tuff and Quranyowa sub-clans; the Tuffs further into Ali and Adola; the Quranyow into Asare and Furkesha
THEY ARE DIVIDED INTO TWO MAJOR SUB CLANS, TUF AND QURAN (QURANYOWA.) ACCORDING TO THE GHARRI ORAL TRADITIONS, ALMOST ALL OF THE GHARRI ELDERS AGREE INCLUDING SHEIKH ABDIWAHID, ONE OF THE WELL RESPECTED GHARRI ELDERS FROM GHARRI KONFUR, GHARRI WAS AN ARAB IMMIGRANT WHO CAME FROM THE GOLF OF ADEN OR POSSIBLY FROM “YEMAN” HE HAD TWO SONS, MOHAMED AND TUF. MOHAMED DIED AFTER HE HAD ONE SON QURAN (QURANYOW). QURAN WAS RAISED BY HIS UNCLE MR. TUF. LATER ON HE MARRIED MAKO WHO IS TUF’S DAUGHTER AND QURAN’S FIRST COUSIN. THEN HE (QURAN) FATHERED TWO SONS, FURKESHA AND ASSAREE. ASSARREE.HAD TWO SONS, BANA AND KILIYA.
FURKESHA, THE BROTHER OF ASSARRE , HAD SEVEN SONS, THEY WERE HODKOYA, BIRKAYA, HOYTRA, DARAWA, KALWESHA, HURDEQ AND “SUBUKITRE”.
ALSO, THE SECOND HALF OF THE GHARRI BRANCH IS TUF. TUF IS BELIEVED TO BE THE UNCLE AND FATHER IN LAW’S OF QURAN OR QURANYOW, AND HE HAD TWO SONS, ALI AND ADOLA. ADOLA HAD EIGHT SONS. THEY WERE KALWINA, KALMASSA, BURSUNI, ODOMAI, MAQABILLE, MAID, RER MUG AND TUBADI.
THE TUF’S SECOND SON ALI HAD THREE SONS; THEIR NAMES WERE KALULA, TAWULLE AND SABDHAWA. SO,
