Ibn Kathir: Gog & Magog are Turks, Mongols

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
وصلى الله على نبينا محمد
وعلى اهل بيته الطيبين الطاهرين المظلومين
Continuing from the previous entry, we now come to the identity of Gog and Magog. It has been my contention that Gog and Magog are Altaic, or Turkic and Mongolic, nations that came out from the steppes of Central Asia, spread throughout the Earth causing corruption. For instance, Ibn Kathir رحمه الله writes:
فَيَأْجُوجُ وَمَأْجُوجُ طَائفَةٌ مِنَ التُّرْكِ وَهُم مَغْلُ المَغُولِ
“So Yagog and Magog are a group from the Turks, and they are the Mughal, Mongols.”
(al-Bidaya wan-Nihaya v.2 p.110):
