As for the Khamseh and Qashka'i. The Khamseh are a mix
of many clans and tribes and are not clearly Oguz. The

The Oguz Turkmen split with Seljuk founding a
confederation that included the people who are now
Turkmen and Azeri and well the Turks that founded
Turkey. I believe that All the Turkmen tribes came to
Islam in that first wave.
