You said that Ishmaelites have been extinct in 7th BC, that contract with Genesis account that God will make Ishmael a great nation, so if Ishmaelites have really extinct, then Bible have lied.
And you've said that Historians say that Muhammad is from Yemenite tribe, can you name this tribe? And can you give me the name of these historians, please?
Hejazi Arabs were all from Ishmael seed, that include prophet Muhammad, even in pre-Islamic era, This is from Wikipedia:
Pre-Islamic Arabia Edit
Some Pre-Islamic poetry mentions Ishmael, his father Abraham, and the sacrifice story, such as the Pre-Islamic poet "Umayyah Ibn Abi As-Salt", who said in one of his poems: بكره لم يكن ليصبر عنه أو يراه في معشر أقتال ([The sacrifice] of his first-born of whose separation he [Abraham] could not bear neither could he see him surrounded in foes).[19][20][21]

"Zayd ibn Amr" was another Pre-Islamic figure who refused idolatry and preached monotheism, claiming it was the original belief of their [Arabs] father Ishmael.[22][23]

Also, some of the tribes of Central West Arabia called themselves the "people of Abraham and the offspring of Ishmael", as evidenced by a common opening of speeches and harangues of reconciliation between rival tribes in that area.[24][25]
