Christians and Jews Who Give Praise to Allah

Standard

Secret Genealogy

Although Allah is the name given to the Supreme Being of the Mohammedans, Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews also use the expression Allah. It is a contraction, Al-ilah, meaning “the God.” It may be a surprise to think of Jews living in Iran but they do. And they have been there for a very long time. Jewish history intertwines with Iranian when back in 636 B.C.E, the Persian (Iranian) ruler, Cyrus the Great, freed the Jews from their Babylonian captivity. It is interesting to note that Ancient Iranian Jews have a high percentage of the Rh-negative blood factor, a blood type not common in the general Jewish population.

Genealogy: Digging Deeper Into Spanish Ethnicity

Standard

During the 11th and 12th centuries, in Spain there existed what’s known as the Golden Age, where Jews and Muslims, under amicable Mohammedan rule, grew intellectually and culturally. In the years preceding 1492, before Jews were completely expelled from Spain, they lived a grand Spanish existence, side by side with Muslims and various other Spaniards. Many of the ancient Jewish genealogical records from that era show Spanish surnames belonging to Jews. Some people are curious and quite surprised to find that their Spanish ancestors were actually Muslims or Jews.

Ancient Indonesian Islamic Ancestors

Standard

If your Dutch, Portuguese or English ancestor took a native of Banten (today’s Indonesia) as a spouse and that native was of the former Islamic Banten Kingdom, it means you have an ancient Indonesian Islamic ancestor. What genealogist wouldn’t love that information? We can spend years uncovering ancient “bloodlines” but if it becomes a source of seeking for superiority, I believe one is on the wrong track. This author does not see any ethnic group or groups as superior of others. The history of the Christians, Egyptians, Jews, Muslims, Phoenicians, Hittites and others belong to us all. It makes one less xenophobic to know other cultures and to have a direct link to them through our own ancient ancestry.

Two Hundred Years of Arab Invasions Before Finally Becoming Muslim

Standard

Am I the only one who thinks twice when hearing Georgia in the news? There is the state of Georgia in the US and then there is Georgia, the sovereign state in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. What an interesting history Eurasia’s Georgia has had. First their oral history proclaims they descend from Noah’s son Japheth and secondly, this small state had suffered 200 years worth of Arab invasions and persecution before finally becoming Muslim. This small Eurasian state has had short histories of independence and became a Russian province after seeking Russia’s help during the 1600s when there were wars raging between the Persians and Turks.
