  1. Ahleen, reer SOL. Gosh, so much has changed, didn't know how to navigate this new platform.. Raula, are you aware of any studies focusing on breast cancer screening in Somali women (quantitative/qualitative)? Much of the research emerging from MN seems to be focusing on maternity health issues. Please let me know if you know of researchers who focus on broader health issues of Somalis in MN. Thanks
  2. Some of the above pictures are just odd! Here's a different look:
  3. Salaam. A beautiful reminder! I missed your writings, br. Nur. I just came back from a trip to the mountains that had a revival effect on my heart, and seeing this (after a long break from SOL) was a bonus, alhamdulilah. May Allah reward you and protect you for your continued efforts of dacwa on these boards.
  4. It boggles me to see Alberta of all places in Canada being called "a dump," particularly by someone living so near some of the most spectacular places not only in Canada, but in the world! Seriously, you should be grateful to Allah for the blessing of the abundant beauty he has bestowed on AB. Some of us drive for hours, or fly, and spend massive money just to experience the amazing natural scenery AB has to offer!! You may not be a nature's peron, but believe me, for most people, just a simple hike up one of those rocky mountains is worth more than anything they'll ever experience in Toronto, or in ON as a whole for that matter. I am in the midst of planning a 2nd trip to the area, and I am just overwhelmed. I want to visit and spend some time on every lake, creek, fall and mountain, but time won't allow me to do so. I do have a question for you though, as an Albertan, whom I am assuming has much familiarity with the area: have you been down to kananaskis country? I understand it's not commercialized/busy as some of the other lakes near banff and Jasper, but I am curious about the hiking trails and their level of difficulty. Have you any suggestion? Oh and best of luck in Toronto; I hope you enjoy it Insha Allah, and hope it's not too humid out there.
  5. ^Let's hope you don't adopt the annoying tonal style of speech most Somali TV hosts and news anchors have -- sort of like the Cowke style
  6. ^Ma saasad khatar u noqotey? Tell me who the unlucky tutor was? salaam and good afternoon, folks.
  7. Subhanallah, some people can be so exuberantly lovable -- you just want to give them a big warm hug. If only it were xalaal...
  8. ^Salaam, dear! What kind of dance do you fancy? Sorry to share this, but I feel like vomiting. Everything, including dadka, ayaa ii uraya today.
  9. ^It appears raggan kugu wada diddey isku-kaftan matihidinee, maad isaga hadhid? Seriously! Mabrook to the cariis! Allah's blessings for your union, Insha Allah.
  10. Doubtful that you are, or that you may one day be? I think it's a possibility. A highly likely one, much more than we realize. But it will require a bit reorientation of the niyya.
  11. "You are someone's miracle. So many people are praying for miracles, we have to realize we can become their miracle." -Anonymous I read this quote when I got in to the office this morning, and I thought I'd share. You guys ever thougt of being someone's "miracle", or the fact that you already are but you just don't know?

  13. @ Cara. If only Somalis could get the opportunity to live among these people, they would know that Ethiopians are some of the most loving, peaceful, polite, big-hearted, and beautiful people in the world (A&T would probably add romantic as well, with which I wouldn't disagree, lol). A&T, you'd have to forgive my ignorance of the music industry, but indeed, it does seem a lot has changed since the old days of Tilahun. That song you posted was quite neat, for the lack of better words. Half of it was of course lost on me since my command of the language has become very poor over the years. But still, he's quite good!
