  1. This made me both sad and angry. The Somali story is so tragic!

I know several divorced women who work part-time or full-time jobs while at the same time raising their little kids. It's not like they're struggling to survive, but yes having a husband in their life would make things much easier. But they don't "need" anyone. Sometimes having a husband, especially a traditional "feed me, pamper me, me, me, me kind of Faarax' is like adding another child to the mix. haha. Good luck to the sister, seems like she has a challenging family to deal with..!

  7. ^You raise a good point re - leaving assets for your children, that' very important for me personally. I do think that you don't neccessarily have to stay put if you buy property, one can move around for better work/ lifestyle opportunities but still invest in property. As for Islamic finance.. There are two main approaches, 1- the bank will buy your property of choice but it will belong to the bank initially, you pay instalments which includes rent (as the bank is your landlord) and payment towards the house , the banks ownership of the property decreases over time until you owe the property out right, it's like those 'rent to buy' schemes. The second approach is based on the basic trade principle, the bank buys the property and sells it you at a higher price which you repay over an agreed period of time. Profits and losses on the property are shared equally. - You can read more about Islamic finance here...
  8. ^You raise a valid point with regards to those who are not convicted or found guilty of the crime but how about the cases where they are convicted? Would you be okay with that? Oday Somali (and most nomads) seem to be objecting to the thread because "it makes Somalis look bad". Every nation and community has it's criminals, we don't have to carry their burden of other peoples mistakes. Also, contrary to some arguments as regards to airing peoples 'sins', the hadith is concerned with small sins, our deen actually requires that society publicly addresses criminal activity, this serves to warn others and encourage open discussion on immorality.
  9. ^Haha, I'm glad that I'm not alone. Marka horeba faduul baa heesaha bandiriga ii geysay, Allah maxaa iga qabsaday lol.. now I resfuse to sing it without a translation.
  10. ^Oh.. that's what it means lol. Thanks.
  11. ^Interesting perspective, it explains why serious crime goes unreported in mainstream Somali media.
  12. ^Ditto.. I thought this was going to be on Somali men in (Hollywood) movies. *yawn*
  13. Alla ilehe nahdii baa idinka dhamaatay.. bal sidan isu dhaama. LOL. Salaams to all - hope you've had a nice Eid.

  17. Good initiative! Nothing annoys more than SLs roads!!!! They need to fix all the main roads and also give small towns and villages access to the major roads, some of our people are completely cut off < .. so supporting this initiative.

I am sure you all go on holidays with your familys- it is just your pictures dont show up on SOL and elsewhere. I can't believe how amazing she looks after just having twins- that normally would destroy a womens' body- can't even see any stretch marks! good on her. Talking of role models... she's definitely "thinspiration" material.
  19. ^Well said. fdama;980473 wrote: Why can't Somalis in the UK do better, like the Hindu Indians have, who are well educated and amongst the prosperous communities in the country. On reason,among many, I believe is because of large families. The main reason is because hindu Indians have come to Britain as economic migrants, a significant number of them being educated professionals whereas most Somalis are refugees from a failed state with high illiteracy levels. The Indians have also arrived several decades before the Somalis - so have had time to adjust, integrate etc. It's an unfair comparison to make but Inshaallah, I too hope more Somalis will make best use of the opportunities available to them in this country but you need to understand that it will take time.
  20. ^worse.. their sick form of 'justice' means that the victim is forcefully married to her rapist or her family is paid off. They actually advocate on the behalf of rapists and harass the police - young women and their families are forced to put qabil honour malarky before justice. I hope this means that these bilaa caqli bast*rds are all thrown in jail!
  21. ^Iga raali noqo. Would donating the Araweelo Handbook to your "library" suffice as xaal?
  22. ^ Errr. don't know what you're on about... but I love Rocky, used to watch it with my brother. El Punto -- he has an issue with xalimos - from the jaariyad to the average girl on TV.
  23. So being articulate, educated and employed = lost? No wonder half our men in the west are losers!!!
