introduction
there tliat certain families of that stock settled in 'Oman.
Strange to say, it makes no direct reference whatever to the
immigration of the el-Yaarubah, whose presence in 'Oman
at a very early period is attested by concurrent tradition,
and who supplied a succession of Imams to the country from
a.d . 1624-1741, when they were superseded by the existing
dynasty of the Al-Bu-Said. Yaarub, the descendant of
Kahtan, (Joktan), is alleged to have reigned over the whole
of lemen, including 'Oman, about 754 years before the
Christian era. He was succeeded by his son Jashjub, and
then by his grandson 'Abd-Shams-Saba, who had two sons,
Himyar and Kahlan, whose descendants undoubtedly inter
mingled, although those of the former became mostly Hadhr,
that is, resident in towns and villages, those of the latter,
Bcdu, or dwellers in plains and deserts. It is uncertain
whether his brother Kahlan, or his son Wathil, or his grand
son Shammir succeeded Himyar, but as Wathil is distinctly
stated to have ruled over 'Oman we are justified in assuming
the existence of the el-Yaarubah in that country. Shammir,
on the other hand, is recorded to have recognized the au
thority of the Persians. ^This last indication," remarks M.
Caussin de Perceval, suggests the idea that Shammir lived
during the great monarchy of Cyrus, about 536 B.C."; 1 it
also corroborates the local tradition of the early domination
of the Persians over 'Oman, from which they were subse
quently expelled by the aid of other immigrants from Yemen.
These consisted of a number of the tribe of el-Azd, a
descendant of Kahlan,—and therefore of the same stock as
the el-Yaarubah,—who originally occupied the territory of
Mareb, and dispersed over different parts of Arabia at the
period of the rupture of the famous dyke there, about a.d. 120.
Those under Nasr, the son of el-Azd, went into 'Oman, and

is indebted to the same learned work for several of the preceding and
subsequent notices respecting the early history of 'Oman.
