I have seen ancient depictions of the ancient Israelites and there features were different than I expected.
Linguistic experts have stated that hebrew is one of the early Asiatic-African languages.
The hamitic people were a dark skinned people, Noah's wife was hamitic, moses' wife was hamitic, the ancient Israelites mixed with hamitic egyptians for centuries before exodus.
In Acts 21:37-38 the soldier mistakenly took Paul for a hamitic egyptian. How could the soldier mistake Paul for an egyptian unless the ancient Israelites were of a darker skin tone?
Also in Exodus 2:16-19 Moses was mistaken for a Hamitic Egyptian. If Moses was not physically identical to hamitic people how could he have also been mistaken for a Hamitic egyptian?
The egyptians of today are not the original ancient egyptian but are of persian, arabic and turkish stock, the orginal egyptians were a Hamitic dark skinned people who were conquered and exiled durring the Islamic conquest.
I have been told by some muslim scholars that the jews that muhammed (peace be upon him) offered the Quran to were dark skinned people and that the jews of today are not the original hebrews (jews) but that the jews of today are the descendants of converts from around the year of 800 a.d and are khazarians to be exact not bloodline original jews that muhammad pbuh spoke to about Quran.
Is there any Early muslim references to the physical identity of the ancient Israelites? or do any muslim historians know anything concerning this?
