5. Jire Madaluug Dir
6. Irrable Madaluug Dir
7. Geelwaaqle Madaluug Dir
8. Masalalay Madaluug Dir
9. Xuseen Madaluug Dir

Only the Gadabursi stayed in their traditional homeland. The rest dispersed in Somali Galbeed and the South after the Abyssinian crusades.

The Madaluug Dir in Western Somali Region (So-called Ogaden) were in the 1870s pushed South in large numbers during the Menelike Amhara invasions from Tug Fafaan down to Beledweyn and Dolow region where they settled with other Dir groups.

The 1880 famines which caused Amahara millitias of Menelike to reach as far South as Beledweyn and Eel Buur in order to raid Somali herds to finance his invasion of Southern Muslim lands, pushed the Manadaluug in large numbers, dispersing them, mostly found other Dir groups and settled with their kinsmen even though impoverised.

This coupled with Ogaden/Absame raids who lost their life stock to Amhara dwindelled the once powerful Madaluug today they are about 120,000 strong but very dispersed over large territories in Western Somalia and Jubba / Shabeelle valley.

In 1880s, the Menelik forces who were expanding and raiding the farming villages of upper Shabeelle and exacting tribute from Somali nomads in villages of upper shabeelle and exacting tribute from nomades at the dry-season watering sites


These raids led to the destruction of many Dir groups which included the Mandaluug, Bajimaal, Gadsan and Suure, which caused many to move futher south.

These raids also motivated many Darood clansman like the Ogadeen and Mareehan to move inland fearing the vicious Amhara Christian raids,these Darood Somali clans fled into Somalia and away from these aggressive blood thirsty Christian Amhars.

There are nine distinct Southern Madaluug Dir in Kenya, Doollo/ Nageele and Jubba Shabelle Valley. The remaining are in Harrara and Western Somali regions

Reer Isaaq ( Largest group) Live in Godey, Qabri Dahare, Shilaaba Jarati and Jubba Shabeele valley. The Mekhaahil subclan lives in Jilib -Kismaayo area

 

Reer Ahmed- Shilaaba, Jarati and large numbers in Kismayo,Jamaame, Afmadow mixed with Bimaal, Suure and their Gadsan Kinsman

 

Reer Hassan are in Godey, Qallafe and Nageelle. Large numbers live in Hiiraan and own farms with their Suure (Fiqi cumar and Fiqi Muxummed) The Reer Nuure live West of Baladweyn. The Reer Maajuun live in Bay Region with the Quranyow Maxammed Dir and some settelled amounf Rahanweyn Eelay. The Reer Majuun and a Madaxweyn Dir group the Reer Aw Said live in this are.

 

Jirre Madaluug- only group remaining in Tog Faafan, Jigjigga

 

Masalalay- NFD Kenya Bardheere Dollow

 

Reer Xuseen

 

Samaroon Saciid of Awad proper Gadabuursi

 

Reer Majjuun amoung Eelay and Quranyow Maxammed Garre Dir of Bay

 

Makahiil large numbers amoungst Dir Bimaal and Surre of Jammaame and spreading out as far as Afmadow and Kismayo. Also in NFD amoung Quranyow and Dir of Bardheere and Doolow Ado. In this region the Mandaluug live closely with the Reer Yaxye, Dheere Madaxweyn and R. Dayo

 

Buufow Ethiopia near great bend of Shabeelle Xamaro Xaddad

 

Angoolle and Xeeble and Reer Nuure all live in Dollow but own large farms West of Beledweyn this group alone numbers about 22,000 souls.

Even though most Dir geneologies record that Dir had 4 Sons Madaxweyn, Madoobe and Mahe Dir and Mandaluug Dir which includes the Samaroon Saciid and Mandaluug clans of the south. I was suprised by the Lower Jube and Shabeelle account of the Mandaluug Dir. And this was observed in Kenya, most Mandaluug identify themselves as Mandaluug Maxammed and they Say that Mandaluug and Samaroon are the sons of Mahe Dir Maxammed Xiniftire. This claim would make the Mandaluug of south direct cousines of the Biyomaal Maxammed, Baajimal Maxammed, Quranyow Maxammed (Garre) and Dabruub. Also the Surre ( Cabdalle and Qubeys clans of South and Mudug). I was also suprised to see quite a number of Madiigaan clans who referred to Mandaluug as Abti (maternal uncles because they said their lineages were Baho Samaroon. The Madigaan and Barsuug (Barsuuk I saw identified with the numerous Mahe Dir in the region stated they were Curads of Dir because they are Madaxweyn Dir) especially the Mandaluug their are part of the same Diya groups of Madaxweyn Dir Hordare (Alaab weyne clans)

Waryaa, there is nothing tragic about their presence in Qoraxay. They are in alliance with the Royal family, simply known as reer Ugaas and thriving. You said, they r called reer Isaaq. We only know them as Madaluug. Im going to respect and love them even more. Thanks for the info

Surre living in Jamaame is news to me but this tragedy can be turned around to a blessing since those lands are the most fertile.

The Darood regimes of the past always attempted to dwindle Dir numbers in all Somali territories.

The reality is Dir is the biggest clan in the Horn of Africa.

The Mandaluug Dir have many subclans. The strongest is the Gadabursi.

I, certainly do know my identity and where I'm from and who I'm related to and my ancestors.

Can't say the same for a clan who doesn't know who they're biological father was who is Iraqi one day, Dir another day and Irir Samaale another day. Although, we all know your father was Bucur Bacayr.

Clan shopping is an Isaaq trait, sorry Ben Dover. I'll have to call you out on that one. A tribe that successfully incorporated Dir clans in the East and Oromos in the West cannot talk about clan shopping. DNA proves this, too.

Ciise Madoobe Dir
Gadabursi Madaluug Dir
Gurgura Madahweyne Dir
Mahe Dir

You must have been in a coma or relatively oblivious if you haven't heard of the names of the subclans of Dir. Stick with the Somaliland topics or Khatumo. This isn't yours bro. Everyone knows these subclans existed for hundreds of years. 8-)

Even a Google search or a Wikipedia search yields the same results.

Just because I only heard of Solomadow or Adam Madoobe yesterday, doesn't mean it never existed.

The fact that Google's search A.I does not recognise it and shows you the results being a city in the Philippines instead tells you all you need to know :)
