Arab project

Currently enrolled in 3 research groups:

Arabian Peninsula
J1 Arab Project

Update on paternal J1 Y-DNA Arab Project

Project Goals:
-->To understand the Arab branches, tribes and their genetic relation with the Ancient Israelites,with other Semitics and with other J1s.-->

Project Background:
-->The Arabs As per the Arab genealogists the Arabs are the descendant of Aber who by his turn is a descendant of (Sam) Shem the mythical great grandfather of the Semitics.

The two main Aber lines are: 1- The(Ibrahemites) The descendants of Abraham PBUH ,Divided into three main groups the ancient Ismailite Arabs the Northern Arabs or the Arabaized Arabs and Adnanite, both of them are the descendants of (Ismail) Ishmael, plus the Ancient Israelites the descendants of (Ishaq) Isaac who few of them became Christian after the expansion of the Christianity in the first century AD and became Christian Arabs after the Islamic expansion , also few Israelites became Muslims and Arabaized after the Islamic expansion in the 7th century AD.

Their origins believed to be from the southern Mesopotamia the modern Iraq and the first appearance of the Ismailite Arabs was in Mecca and its surrounding aria (Al Hejaz) probably between (1700-1500 BC), Then they spread to (Najad ) and to all over Arabia , they Arabized and learned their Arabic language from (jourhom) the Qahtanite Arabic tribe.

Adnanite arabs existed between (200BC -50 BC)and Divided into two main branches Mudhar and Rabeaa , from Mudhar came Qurayish the tribe of the prophet Mohammad (PBUH),the rest of the Ismailite Arabs existed between (1700 BC-1500BC). 2-The Qahtanite Arabs or the southern or the pure Arabs the Descendants of Qahtan or Yaqdhan, existed probably 2000BC.

They were the first to speak the classic Arabic; the Qahtanite are divided into two branches,the Sabaeans and the Hadhramies, the Sabaies by their turn divided into Himyarites and Kahlanies; from Himyarites Arabs Came Qudaa one of the main south Arabic groups today and from Kahlanies the second main group came Al Azd, Mudhaj, Hamadan, Khuolan, Tayi and Ashar .

They were located in the south of the Arabian Peninsula, the modern Yemen and Oman, gradually they spared all over Arabia.

Regarding the mother land of the Arabs (Semitics), There are four theories:

• The Arabian Peninsula
• The Fertile Crescent
• The southern Levant
• Ethiopia and Eretria

The Language of the Arabs is Arabic a branch of the Semitic Languages

Participation Any Arab person with J1(+M267)Haplogroup ,believes or doubt that his origin is Arabic and carrying a J1 Haplogroup can participate to this project; the minimum requirement for participation is the J1 Haplogroup confirmation or prediction and 12 STR Markers test.-->
