The Afar, Out of Africa Migrants global ancestor.
If you believe in religious scriptures we, all humans, are all the progenies of Adam and Eve. The two original human creation of God. It is Adam and Eve that gave rise to mankind.
Adam and Eve early offsprings were obedient to their creator God, Allah Azawajal, for many generations to Satan displeasure. They took heed of God warnings that Satan was a clear enemy to mankind.
The later generations forgot about God warnings and let Satan to have a way back in their live. Satan made to them appealing all sort of transgression until the generation of Prophet Noah, AWS, ( NUH ).
God always keeps his promise. He said I will send you Messengers to remind you of the covenant between your father Adam and myself. This Messenger tasks is to remind you of God and warn you against Satan.
The people of Noah reached the summum of the transgression against God. Noah was God appointed messenger to warn mankind against God forthcoming punishment if they don’t come back to obedience.
You probably heard about the flood, the boat, a selection of a pair of every species on Earth ( Male and Female ) and the Ark to save mankind from the flood and God punishment. I will not dwell much on this part. For the purpose of my article, I will concentrate on Noah’s progenies.
Prophet Noah AWS ( NUH in the Quran ) had four male children: Ham, Shem, Japheth and Yam. Yam perished in the Flood for refusing to believe and boarding Noah’s Ark. So everything perished except those in Noah’s Ark. Since the flood, all humans left are Noah and his three children offsprings: Ham, Shem and Japheth. All three were Blacks off different shade and complexion and from Africa.
Let’s move from the scriptures narration to the scientific and genetic classification. These three sons, genetically, are classed into Halo groups, a genetic population that share a common ancestor on the patrilineal ( father ) or matrilineal ( Mother ) side.
The three main Halo-groups are L1 ( San people; Australe Africa ); L2 ( Pygmées people , Central and West Africa ) and L3 ( Afar people East Africa ). These three Halo groups equates to the 3 sons of Noah.
All of Out Africa Migration fall under these three Halo-groups. However one Halo Group, L3 stands out of these three as they represent 90% of out of Africa Migration. It is the Halo Group L3 ( Afar people ).
After the crossing L3 ( Afar ), the parent group branched out into two Halo-groups. The halo-group “N” ( Yemeni people, Ancestors of Arabs, Europeans and the Halo-group “M” Ancestors of South East Asian, Tamoul, Sri-Lankan, Indiens, Aborigines, Native Americans ancestors ) once they crossed the Straits of Tears ( Bab el Mandheb ) in the Red Sea, between the Afar triangle ( Djibouti, Ethiopia and Eritrea ) and Yemen, most probably around 80,000 to 60,000 years ago.
All three halo-groups took part in this Migration out of Africa and spread out across the world. It is important to mention that the halo-group L1 ( San people ) are the direct ancestors of the Chinese, Japanese, Koreans...
In the above two documentaries( All three Halo-Groups are involved in this Migration ) , the Mother and Father Line about Eddie Izzard, artist, comedian, DNA journey take us through a couple hundredth thousand years of Out of Africa trek. Eddie is the first Briton to use his DNA as a road map.
Eddie Izzards challenge was to find out if he was from Anglo-Saxon or Celtic descent. Eddie got the answer to that question and many more. Let’s take this journey with him starting with the mother line documentary and the L3 ( Afar ) Halo- group which represent 90 % of the Out of Africa Migration.
The Father Line documentary link is provided below.
