Just come across something interesting. Just for information which compliments theory presented in this thread.


Banu Kinanah (also Bani Kinanah) (Arabic: بنو كنانة‎) (Arabic: بني كنانة‎) are the largest Mudhari Adnanite tribe of western Saudi Arabia in Hejaz and Tihama.
They are descended from Kinanah, who was a grandson of Ilyas (known as Elijah in Jewish and Christian traditions) who was named after the prophet Elijah. Their history goes back to pre-Hijrah times.

Kinanah (or Kinana) was an ancestor of the Prophet Muhammad:

Abu Muhammad 'Abd al-Malik bin Hisham wrote: Muhammad was the son of 'Abdullah, b. 'Abdu'I-Muttalib (whose name was Shayba), b. Hashim (whose name was 'Amr), b. 'Abd Manaf (whose name was al-Mughira), b. Qusayy (whose name was Zayd), b. Kilab, b. Murra, b. Ka'b, b. Lu'ay, b. Ghalib, b. Fihr, b. Malik, b. aI-Nadr, b. Kinanah, b. Khuzayma, b. Mudrika (whose name was 'Amir), b. Ilyas, b. Mudar, b. Nizar, b. Ma'add, b. Adnan, b. Udd (or Udad),....b. Ya'rub, b. Yashjub, b. Nabit, b. Ishmael, b. Ibrahim (Abraham), the friend of the Compassionate.[1]
