Issa Mussa from Abdirahman Awal Sheikh Isaaq. Sheikh Isaaq Bin Ahmed was one of the Arabian scholars that crossed the sea from Arabia to the Horn of Africa to spread Islam around 12th to 13th century. He is said to have been descended from Prophet Mohammed's daughter Fatimah. Hence the Sheikh belonged to the Ashraf or Sada, titles given to the descendants of the prophet. He married two local women in Somalia that left him eight sons, one of them Issa Mussa Abdirahman (Awal). The descendants of those eight sons are the what is known as Isaaq clan today.
