in that case this DNA and DNA tests are useless to Somalis.
Because a person can only be considered to be a Somali ( or of Somali origin) when his clan is determined.

It's not useless in one sense, as the dna tests done here are all returning the same results, with he exception of dawa, of course. This casts doubt over the validity of the mythology that claims some tribes originate from middle eastern sheikhs, whilst other somalis originate from East Africa. In other words, it strengthens the case of those who argue that the stories of sheikh isaac, darood and co are all made up. Having said that, there needs to be testing of a large number of Somalis to determine.

He can only be somali if his father is somali as well as his granddad (his fathre's father) his great grand father(his grand father's father) and so on.

If he has obtained the somali dna from the females( his mother, grandmother and soforth) he is still just the negro that he looks.


You can only receive Y-DNA from your father, your mother does not have a Y chromosome and it is impossible to get Y-DNA from your mother's side.
I got in touch with him but it looks like he's having trouble getting access to his STR results, they want him to pay for another test or something.
From the sound of his results, I think he got back E1b1b, which yes, Somalis as well as Algerian Berbers have, but so does a dozen other ethnic groups spread across Africa, it's 30,000 years old. It's a bit premature to say he has a Somali haplotype.

The "Somali" haplogroup is not unique to Somalis even, it's also found amongst Oromo, Afar, Beja, Sudanese, south Egyptians, and the Fur and Masalit of Sudan. It's 8.5 thousand years old!

You can find specific "Somali" haplotypes though, for instance in the last round of SomaliNet's local research our participants put "names to faces" for many of the haplotypes found in for instance the Hallenberg 2005 study, and those are much younger lineages than E1b1b1a1b in general, maybe a 500-1000 years old or younger.

E1b1a8? That's not even E3b, which is the Somali/Berber/Egyptian gene.

Assalamu aleykum,

It wasn't a matter of fighting against slave traders. That's not how it worked. The institution existed for many reasons but predominantly because of war. If you were a nation which had wars prior to 'modern days' then there would have been captives taken from you & sold into slavery. That's how it worked in those days. So for example if the invasion of Somalia happened in 1806, rather than 2006, there would have been a market afterwards like any other war. And when you take a captive, you grab them by the ear and sell them in the market to merchants who specialize in the trade. Any region there is war, the markets nearby have slaves. Men, women and children. Christian or Muslim, white or brown, king or peasant. No exceptions.

Wat depresses me is that there were/are no anti slavery mouvement in the Muslim world;
That the only two "Islamic" countries in Africa openly practice slavery (sudan and mauritania) :cry:

I think we Muslims need a kind of CULTURAL REVOLUTION...
