OP and the video was addressing the early Swahili periods while you(which I doubt even watched the video based on your posts) is talking about the Omani/Portuguese period of the later centuries. Those are two very different timelines and for good reasons. For one the Islam they practiced during the earlier centuries(8th-13th century) was different from the Islam they practice now. It was less "conservative" back then.An Abbasid derivation? But perhaps this is also "not worthy", of your evidently vast intellect and deep scholarship!? My having merely referred to the Kilwa Sultanate, and some further advanced academic enquiry on the topic.
That would be...
And yes, the Kilwa chronicles are not to be taken seriously or at face value.
