  1. Salam Alaikum brother,

    Since my number of posts per day have been expired, the only reason to answer your questions, is this way! The charts indeed is not a genealogical chart but like I said in my topic, according to Biblical sources (Table of Nations in Genesis 10 (verses 15-19) Canaan is ancestor of 11 groups. The groups can be found on his wikipedia page:


    Now a little search done and I read that in the book "The History of al-Tabari, Vol. 2: Prophets and Patriarchs, An Account of Biwarasb, that is, al-Azdahaq, page 212" it has been stated:

    "Cush (brother of Canaan) married Qarnabil, the daughter of Batawil bin Tiras bin Japheth, and it is asserted that she bore him the Abyssinians, Sindis and Indians."

    Basically referring to people with a "black" skin color. But wikipedia says that al-Tabari means that Cush married Qarnabil, son of Tiras. According to ancient texts dating back to Kuru Dynasty, we read one of them:

    "The country (varṣam) that lies north of the ocean and south of the snowy mountains is called Bhāratam; there dwell the descendants of Bharata."

    Bharata is a tribe where the legendary Emperor Bharata has been descended to. Has it a link to Canaan in Christianity and Qarnabil in Islam?

    Jazak Allah Khair.
