  1. Because Ethiopia = Ethiopians, Eritrea = Eritreans etc. etc. so people just assumed Somalia = Somalians
  2. I cant watch it at work. Summary please?
  3. All these nations at the bottom are much of a muchness. Also, I can accept that countries like New Zealand and Denmark have very little corruption. But the stinky corruption in countries like Italy, USA, Saudi Arabia etc. can be smelt a mile away.
  4. I've heard similar allegations thrown at him by some local Asians who has had some dealings with him. I cannot verify their tales as a fact, but when there are so many different people saying the same things then there has to be a grain of truth to it. They cannot all be liars [these are all Muslims too btw].
  5. Wait... In most jobs you end up with Dhuhur iyo Casar, and perhaps in the winter Maghreb as well. That's 2 salats, 3 at most. Who takes 5 breaks for that? BTW, those dudes looked like Somalis.
  6. Bleh...they gonna portray us as these barbaric terrorists whilst they are the saviours of the world. So predictable.

  8. Do not believe it. This is the Daily Mail. It's a newspaper version of Fox News. Their aim is to spread as much propaganda about blacks, muslims, women, immigrants, homosexuals etc. Facts are irrelevant to them. As long as they abuse and smear entire ethnic groups and communities, their target audience are happy. Unless you are a white heterosexual male, you are a parasite.
  9. 75 is a big number. How reliable are these Kenyati folks?
  10. He just needs to practise his C's and X's and he'll be fine. Those are the only two letters that non-Somalis have a problem with. Though if they are fine with some of the German & Scandinavian letters, then they should be alright with the Somali ones as well. This white girl sings quite well in Somali, all things considered. I don't know how to embed the video.
  11. Iranians hiring Mexicans to assassinate a Saudi diplomat? Sounds like a Hollywood script in the making. No surprise that the mainstream press have swallowed the story hook, line and sinker.
  12. I've watched this, and read people's reactions on twitter and other social media sites, and all the holier than thou people are coming out the woodwork with their "moral outrage" . That said, I'm not the most compassionate person, but even i would stop and help the child.
  13. This place is a more posh version of other Somali forums. At least the people here are friendly and civil. BTW, what's with the numbers of viewers it says on each section. Are those numbers for real? It can't be.

Usually, religion flag waivers are fakers in sort of agenda related ways which has nothing to do with faith. For me, many years, i lived in societies where i was the only african or muslim. Since this was my younger years, i use to even forget how to speak the somali lingo! Some how, i never lost faith or my culture. Everytime that i met somalis, buried memories would get restored in my brain. Some one will play a somali song or remain me of holly days, then i would talk to my somali friends about it. Doubting is a mode of inquiring, therefore, discussing it with some close to you is a good way of digging deep into thoughts that challenge you sometimes. The more discussions about the brighter the light at end of the tunnel. I love islam since its a religion that preaches peace n love, event though, in the light of these days, u might think that its the opposite, since many rogue islam fackers and haters have been spreading false informations about islam. I have also done alot of research, i.e, like reading Al Ashar university publications, which u can find it here in the link below: Im with you on that. Problem is that topics like these are a massive taboo in our communities. If someone hears that you have doubted your faith, you will get vilified with no mercy. But I shall keep asking questions, and keep doing research to educate myself more, and hopefully my Imaan will go up in the process. Thanks to everyone else who has answered. I had to get this off my chest and Im glad that Im not the only one who has gone through this. I once met a Somali guy who openly admitted he was Agnostic. He was still a cultured guy, he chewed occasionally and listened to Somali songs. The only difference between him and Odey Xassan down the road is that this guy diinta bu ka tagey. I wanted to ask many questions about why and how he left Islam, but I felt it was too rude.

Thre are many religious on this world and all claiming , believing to be right, but Islam is the one, and anyone can say his religious is the one, but one has to back with evidences. Most of the people are sheep, and without a question follow what their parents/communities followed, whether it is Islam, Christian, Hundus, Budhist etc Seek knowledge, and you will find the answers to make you peace. I'll give you an example., Things like stoning, lashings, chopping of hands, public executions etc. make me uncomfortable. I sort of try to rationalise it in my mind that this is not something I can agree with. But I feel I am going against the will of God. I dont know. I believe everyone deserves "due process of law" and without public humiliation. Maybe this is the result of 20 odd years of utter liberal propaganda that have been hammered into me since childhood. Other things I have questioned in Islam is things like inheritance jurisprudence and the distribution of wealth, how assets should be divided up between sons & daughters. I find myself disagreeing with it. I can name other things. *Blessed;749113 wrote: Hey, have a look at this. I know that you said that you still have faith in God but I think the struggle he went through might be of interest to you.. Thanks for this. I've watched this guy before. Although he went much further away from diinta I can still somewhat relate to this.
