$30.00About the Book“Taariikhdu waynoo musbaax maanka caawima’e, Adoo male gudaayaad yaqiin marar ku gaadhaaye, Makaankaaga waa inaad taqaan meelba waxa yaalle.” —Xaaji Aadan Afqallooc, ahun. “Nebiga scw ka dib, taariikhda Islaamka ma soo marin qof ka saamayn badnaa Cumar ibnul Khaddaab rc, waana ay adag tahay in la helo cid u dhiganta, shakhsiyad ahaan iyo waxqabad ahaanba.

Dirkii Sacmaallada (Volume 1) (Somali Edition)
$40.00About the BookWhere do Somalis actually come from? The origins of the Somali people, often described simply as pastoralists, although they have been sailing to places as far away as the Indonesian islands before European colonization, is a question that has seen several treatises and theories. Dirkii Sacmaallaada (The Progeny of Cow Milkers), by Ahmed Ibrahim Awale is a serious examination of the question. Unlike some other works written in Somali and purporting to cast new light on ancient Somali history, without references to previous literature, it is apparent this work is based on ample bibliographical research. In chapter one, the author discusses the origins of the Somali people; in chapter two he examines the connections Somalis may have had with the outside world in ancient times; in chapter three, he addresses the ancient religion of Somali, while in chapter four he reviews Somali civilization. Those interested in Somali history would find this work much useful and original in many respects.About the AuthorAhmed Ibrahim Awale (Axmed Ibraahin Cawaale) is a researcher and development worker with over twenty years experience. He is specialized in management and environmental protection. He has written about the environmental situation of the Somali Peninsula, ancient history of the Somalis, Somali women and traditional religious practice (Sitaad).
