But wasn't she a black slave woman?

According to authentic narration , she was a descendant from simon peter شمعون الصفا from mother side

And descendant from roman Caesar from father side ( grand daughter of Caesar)

We are talking about imam Hadi times, during that era the Abbasid were at wars against the eastern Roman Empire.

Eastern Romans were Turks and Syrians. Until today, some Syrians and Lebanese claim to be roman in origin.

So they were middle eastern people carrying the diversity of the Middle East. Actually one of the emperors of that era was described as being black with dark curly hair and big messy beard.

Our scholars have no problem reconciling both narrations. She was brought to the imam as slave captured during Abbasid roman wars.

Maybe many imagine her to have fair skin because imam Mahdi is said to resemble our prophet (facial likeness) and our prophet was not too dark.

Proof that she is a descendant of Simon Peter? And proof that one of the Emperors of that time was black?
