Evidence of al-Maqrizi on Anan ben David's acceptence of Muhammad as Prophet sent to Arabs!

The Acclaimed Israeli Prof. Moshe Gil wrote in his 'Origins of Karaites', p. 89: "Even Maqrizi [...] described the Ananites as if they were a separate sect named after the exilarch Anan, who served in this office during the reign of al-Mansur, that is, in the eighth century. He also ascribes to them the practices mentioned above with regard to Rosh Hodesh and intercalation. According to Maqrizi, ANAN SPOKE FAVORABLY ABOUT JESUS AND CONSIDERED MUHAMMAD AS PROPHET WHO WAS SENT TO THE ARABS.
