Who were the Hyksos?

The Qu'ran speaks of the people of 'Ad. Qu'ran 7:65-72; 11:50-60; 26:123-140. Suraat al Haaqqa 6-8.

I believe that Ad is the same land as the land of Uz in Job's story. Where was Uz? Lamentations 4:21 says Edom in South of Jordany. Qu'ran calls Ad and Hud. These are very likely Uz and Hul in Genesis 10:23.

When did Job live? His friend was Efifaz who was Esau's son. So Job lived just after Esau had founded the nation of Edom.

Job was probably the same as king Jobab of Edom The capital of Hyksos king Salatis was Avaris. This is modern day Tell-el Daab'a in the Nile Delta.
