Ben Yemen

Sheba
The trading port between East and West


Aramco states, the Sabaeans dominated trade between the East and the Mediterranean - with Chinese ships (bringing silk), Indian ships (cinnamon, pepper, gold & precious stones), and African ships (produce) sailing through it's port in Aden. [aramco]

See the route from Aqaba to Aden - this is the route from the ancient Kingdom of Edom to the ancient Kingdom of Sheba. So did ships from Ezion Geber (Edom) pass through Aden (Sheba) - to the Far East?
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

"King Solomon also built ships at Ezion Geber, which is near Elath in Edom, on the shore of the Red Sea. And Hiram sent his men - sailors who knew the sea - to serve in the fleet with Solomon's men. They sailed to Ophir and brought back 420 talents of gold, which they delivered to King Solomon."
[1 Kings 9:26-28]

In Muar, Ophir (אוֹפִיר) is Mt Ledang. [map here] The region is famed for its gold - the Chinese called it 'Kim Sua' (金山 Golden Mountain), the Indians called it 'Suvarnabhumi' (सुवर्ण भूमि Land of Gold), the Greeks called it Golden Chersonese (Χρυσή χερσόνησος).

So, did they deliver gold from Malacca to King Solomon ? [ref] (*v*) ماشاء الله والله أعلم

Mediterranean - Suez - Aden - Indonesia (circa 1800s)

I wonder if the route is the same taken by the Jews - when Indonesia was under Dutch rule. Jacob Halevy Saphir reports of Ashkenazi Jewish families in Jakarta, Surabaya & Semarang, but many mix married with the locals. [ref1 | ref2 | cemetery]

Now, Sheba is in the ancient history of Yemen.

Anyway in Malaysia, there are people who descend from Yemen. Zeti Akhtar Aziz is said to descend from the Hadhrami from her mother Sharifah Azah Mohamed Alsagoff. [lineage | ref] The Alsagoff are merchants from Yemen who reached Singapore in the 1800s - along with the Alattas, Aljunied, Alkaff and Ibn Talib.

And Zeti's father, Ungku Aziz descended from the Circassians. Ungku Aziz himself founded Tabung Haji - which still serves pilgrims the journey to Mecca today. And before there were airlines, pilgrims had traveled by ships - through the route above - from Singapore to Aden to Jeddah. الحمد لله


ماشاء الله how old am I
This is my personal link with Yemen | mail

I seek refuge in Allah SWT from errors
Only Allah SWT Knows Best والله أعلم

It has also been narrated by Sa'd b. Abu Burda through his father through his grandfather that the Prophet of Allah (PBUH) sent him and Mu'adh (on a mission) to the Yemen, and said (by way of advising them): يسرا ولا تعسرا، وبشرا ولا تنفرا، وتطاوعا ولا تختلفا Show leniency don't be hard upon them, give them glad tidings and do not create aversion, work in collaboration and don't be divided. [Sahih Muslim Book 19, Hadith 4298]

Narrated Ibn Abbas: The Prophet (PBUH) sent Mu`adh to Yemen and said, "اتق دعوة المظلوم ، فإنها ليس بينها وبين الله حجاب Be afraid from the curse of the oppressed, as there is no screen between his invocation and Allah." [Sahih Bukhari Vol. 3, Book 43, Hadith 628]

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "أتاكم أهل اليمن، أضعف قلوبا وأرق أفئدة. والفقه يمان، والحكمة يمانية The people of Yemen have come to you, and they are more soft hearted and gentle hearted people. The capacity for understanding religion is Yemenite, and wisdom is Yemenite." [Sahih Bukhari Vol. 5, Book 59, Hadith 673]

As the Arabian & Eurasian (Iranian) Plates fold in embrace at the Zagros
why choose battle, when you both can choose to embrace in mercy ♥
BY THE COMMAND OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH), THE MESSENGER OF MERCY
