Like the Nummo

Khidr also named The Green OneKept in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khidr #/media/File:Khizr.JPG

In the Quran there is the story of the Muslim sage Khidr, who was known as the "Green One". I referred to Khidr in my first book, The Master (Mistress) of Speech, because like the Nummo, he was green, immortal and could predict the future.Shannon Dorey, The Master (Mistress) of Speech pp. 139-140.

This picture of him standing on a fish in the ocean is very telling because the Nummo were green fishtailed beings. This is part of the Small Clive Album of Indian miniatures, thought to have been given by Shuja ud-Daula, the Nawab of Avadh, to Lord Clive during his last visit to India in 1765-67.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khidr #/media/File:Khizr.JPG

Notice the design on the top of the Dome of Al-Khidr (also spelled Khadr) at Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem shown above. We find the same symbol on the fishtail of the Syrian and Canaan god Dagon below.

DagonShannon Dorey, Day of the Fish p. 58

I associate Dagon with the Nummo in Day of the Fish. In the picture of the bearded Khidr standing on the fish, he holds some type of garland in his hand. "On this Etruscan amphora, the bearded Dagon carries a garland of hearts as he swims through the sea surrounded by dolphins. Dagon's breasts and beard reveal his androgynous nature further associating him with the hermaphroditic Nummo."

"The name 'Dagon' was first mentioned in Mari texts, and is from Amorite names in Syria and Canaan dating to about 2500 BCE."Shannon Dorey, Day of the Fish pp. 343-344

Through descriptions of the Nummo, we can associate Khidr with Dagon. There are reports from al-Bayhaqi that Khidr was present at the funeral of Muhammad.

It is related as follows: "A powerful-looking, fine-featured, handsome man with a white beard came leaping over the backs of the people till he reached where the sacred body lay. Weeping bitterly, he turned toward the Companions and paid his condolences. Ali said that he was Khidr."https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khidr (Ibn al-Jazari, 1994, p. 228)

In the tale from the Quran, Moses meets Khidr ("the Green One" or "first angel of God") in the desert. They wander along together and Khidr expresses his fear that Moses will not be able to witness his deeds without indignation. If Moses cannot bear with him and trust him, Khidr will have to leave.

Khidr of course proceeds to do things that Moses finds evil. This is because Khidr can see future events that Moses can't see or understand.

The story of Khidr, the Green One, from the Quran may represent a human misunderstanding of the Nummo. Throughout the Dogon religion, there is the sense that the Nummo had to leave the Earth so that humans could come to terms with the truth on their own.Shannon Dorey, The Master (Mistress) of Speech pp. 139-140.
