Central Asians

Tajik Pamiri children | wiki

ماشاء الله these children live in Tajikistan. But can they actually look Russian? Russian, Bosnian... OK I can't tell the difference between how the Soviet and the Balkan looks, but you know... Still, are the Tajik Pamiri actually of Persian roots?

FYI, Central Asia has one of the most colorful DNAs | map
واختلاف ألسنتكم وألوانكم [Q30:22] ماشاء الله

So, how did the East & West mixed?

 1  For one, could mixing have happened during the Israelite exile around 6th century BC? Some tribes are said to trace their ancestry to the Israelite, e.g: the Bukharan Isro’il (Israel), Pashtun.

 2  Then in the 4th century BC - from the west - Alexander the Great spread the Macedonian empire across Central Asia. & Alexander promoted mix marriage - he himself married Stateira II in ancient Persia & Roxana in ancient Afghanistan. This period saw the rise of Greek culture across the region, called the Hellenistic Period.

In this period, even the New Testament was written in Greek, not Hebrew. [Q14:4]
So, does this mean the New Testament is spread in Greek - across a multi cultural world? الحمد لله

 3  Then in the 13th century - from the east - the Mongols became the largest contiguous empire in human history, sweeping across Central Asia. When they eventually embraced Islam, Samarkand and Bukhara became learning centers, with one of the finest observatory in Samarkand. الحمد لله


The 15th century Admiral Zheng He is genetically Persian with roots from Bukhara | ref
It seems from Persia, the route to the East splits near Bukhara towards Nepal and Tian Shan | map
The Persian شیر (shir) means "lion", like the Hindi शेर (sher) and Chinese 獅 (shi) | ref | BC

And the robe above is the 道袍 (dopo), similar to the ثوب (thobe) | Enlightenment | Pacific



Where the West and the East mix together



Food like matzo spread East and West as well - to Turkey, Iran, Central Asia (◠9◠) | wiki
It's cooked in the tandoor - an earthen oven for baking bread & roasting meat - like the chicken tandoori

I seek refuge in Allah SWT from errors.

I can't help but notice their hair. The red ones are like lion's.
& Persia is like Farsan (فرسان), which means "knights, horse riders".
Both the red hair & horse reminds me of Ur David. [pic]

Bukhara is famed for Imam Bukhari, Ibn Sina (Avicenna) & Zheng He's ancestors.
Zheng He's paternal ancestry really is Persian. [ref]

אריה (arya) sounds like 儒雅 (ruya), आर्य (arya), Aryan, Iran | Iron

Reading "In early Vedic literature, the term Āryāvarta (Sanskrit: आर्यावर्त, abode of the Aryans) was the name given to northern India, where the Indo-Aryan culture was based" ... the name of Iran is the Persian word for land/place of the Aryans ..." | Ariana

Googling "lion" in Japanese ... ライオン raion → lion 🤔


Welcome
Peace be upon you
