Somaliland:In the memory of Ali Gulaid
Ahmed ArwoAugust 16, 20091945-2009
By Ahmed Arwo
“Truly God commands you to give back trusts to those to whom they are due, and when you judge between people, to judge with justice…. ” (Quran, 4:58)
On 6th August 2009, we were shocked with the sudden death of a great leader, a hero who stood for justice, a defender of human rights, and fighter for transparency and accountability. I would like to honour a man who doesn´t know the meaning of fear, a man who doesn´t know the meaning of defeat, quit or surrender. I share with you a short note on the life of this hero, a drop of this giant´s life history. Ali was a founding member of Kulmiye Party of Somaliland, an Executive Committee Member and at the time of death, he was Presidential Election Campaign Manager of the Capital and enjoining provinces of Awdal and Sahil. Ali died in car accident. He was on his way to welcome Kulmiye Chairman and Presidential candidate Mr. Ahmed Mohamed Silanyo, who was returning to Berbera from abroad.
To a friend Ali was a shoulder to cry on, to a foe he was a bullet ready to escape from a gun, to the poor he was a hand to feed, to the media he was tireless advocate, to oppressed he was an army to count on., to the youth he was a role model…..a man educated to the peak, employed comfortably who gave up the leisure and easy life of California for the dry, dusty, and moreover disorderly, where rule of law is yet to be established. He did that for he wanted to have his mark on the development of his beloved motherland. He believed rightly he can contribute more not only to his countrymen, but to the whole humanity in taking part of Somaliland nation building. A country totally destroyed in every aspect, economically, socially and legally, a nation below any conceivable measurement of human livelihood. The need was immense, and any contribution to its betterment was magnified beyond imagination. That touched his kind heart and his decent soul.
Ali took a lion´s share in planting the seed of democracy in Somaliland. He continued to cultivate, feed and nurture that seed to grow. That process is perpetual and needs dedication, determination and conviction. Alas that trait is rare in our countrymen, but it was abundant in Ali. He started the struggle to emancipate his people in early 1980´s when he visited home after long period abroad. On his return he had an interview with Abdillahi Haji of the BBC and he was the first who bluntly used the slanderous name of Siyad Barre in a public radio and more than once, despite a sharp opposition of Abdillahi…” He concluded if Af-weyne is not removed, there will be no Somalia”. How true he was.
He was a man of principle, a visionary with talented leadership. Though never bending his longterm strategy, he was pragmatic, open to reconciliation that is needed in today´s politics. Ali believed that regular elections alone are not sufficient to create a democratic government. Other conditions must also be present: a free press, and a minimum degree of respect for political adversaries, the national institutions and the laws. Access to independent information is essential to the health of democracy. It ensures that citizens make responsible, informed choices. Information also serves a checking function by ensuring that elected Representatives are accountable to the electorates, carrying out their wishes, instead of serving their personal desires.
As a professional auditor, Ali left a legacy of holding government to account. His annual analysis of national budget is the only document the public has an access to know how their hard earned tax shillings are spent. No other document is in public domain. Our government has no sense of governance to publicise national budget even in short summary, neither the Parliament did better. That role is gallantly undertaken by Ali Gulaid. I had the chance to collate this national treasure in my blog page, for public scrutiny now and in perpetuity. Under the label of “Ali Gulaid” you can browse detailed budget analysis from 2002. It is an eternal legacy that will remain for public reference. http://samotalis.blogspot.com/search/label/ALI%20GULAID
Lately I contacted Ali for his knowledgeable advice on an organisation; I thought is drastically needed for the development of the fragile institutions of our democracy. I established this organisation which is in its infancy with much of his contributions. “Somaliland Democracy Shield” a name that tells all. Ali with all his commitment to Kulmiye cause, emphasised the need that this organisation be free of party politics and geared nothing less than building a nation where rule of the law is the king, where personal freedom and liberty is well guided, where every citizen has given his or her potential …” I advise you that this organisation should be for justice and for human rights, regardless which party is governing the nation” Ali emphasised.
With his work intact, with his vision in process, with his struggle on the horizon, Ali remains active among us, though physically absent. His ideas are discussed, debated and implemented on daily basis between generations and cross parties, and practically within Kulmiye Party that works on Ali´s agenda. I among many of his supporters am fully committed to realize his vision. Following his footsteps Insha Allah, we shall build a free society, where individuals have equal rights to reach their potential, where government is the servant of the people and not its master, a nation where peace is guarded with justice, where transparency, accountability and good governance is the guiding principles of all national institutions. That was Ali Gulaid´s dream, he paid the ultimate cost in seeking that noble objective; he gave his life for it. It is us, his fans young and old that can continue and with sure determination and conviction Insha Allah, we shall realize sooner than latter. Just hold yourself to account for the general good and get rid off selfish trash that blinds you from what is right and traps your soul with sugar coated ills that will lead you to social crime, corruption, bribery and lack of peace of mind. Worst of all, as a believer; remember if your evil deeds are not punished in this world, there is the day of judgement, when no one has the ability to hide the slightest of his deeds good or bad. Saving your self from sins of injustice will save your nation.
I am delighted to receive a number of calls from unconnected sources that want to honour Ali by giving his name to a school. That initiative came this early is a witness how this nations values Ali Gulaid, may Allah bless his soul, and may Allah guide his children and supporters to follow him in pursuit of justice and social development for all.
At this moment let me refresh your remembrance with one of his remarkable articles, appealing for recognition of Somaliland as independent and sovereign state, published in April 2002:
Somaliland Recognition Is Overdue
By Ali Gulaid, San Jose, California
Despite the historical claim to sovereignty, a decade of stability and a referendum of self-determination, Somaliland is perishing for lack of recognition. The international community has acknowledged the political progress Somaliland has made but it has withheld the coveted recognition. Somaliland is a de jure State and the claim that the unity of former Somalia (Somalia) is sacred is farcical. Somaliland was an independent constitutional state for five days (June 26, 1960 to June 30, 1960). She has enjoyed an international personality before she relinquished her sovereignty for the realization of greater Somalia. At that time, Somaliland had received an informal recognition form the United States and concluded four treaties with Great Britain and Ireland.
The former Somali Republic was a union of two states (British Somaliland and Italian Somalia) and contrary to the myth; Somaliland was never part of Somalia before the illegitimate union in 1960. The Ottoman Turks and the Egyptians colonized Somaliland before she became a British Protectorate in 1887, while Italy and others colonized Somalia. Moreover, the “Act of Union” was never signed and according to the Vienna convention on the law of treaties it fell short as a valid treaty recognizable under the international law. The people of Somaliland have genealogical lineage that they don´t share with the people of Somalia. The common language and religion have failed to overcome the clan loyalty and the culture imbued by the disparate colonial systems. The disparity in political power sharing exacerbated the irreconcilable differences.
As a result, Somaliland became disenchanted with the illegitimate “union” early on. On June 20, 1961, major parties in Somaliland boycotted the ratification of the unifying constitution. On December 9, 1961 all of the twenty-two (22) military officers, Sandhurst graduates, and the cream of Somaliland, without a single defection staged a coup to secede from the Union. On October 1962, the only two Somaliland cabinet ministers resigned from the government – the current President being one of the two – and a few days later, all the Somaliland deputies walked out of the parliament.
But it was the ethnic cleansing exacted on the people of Somaliland that compelled them to re-claim their sovereignty: once bitten, twice shy. According to Africa Watch, the Siyad Barre government killed more than fifty thousand people from Somaliland, destroyed the major cities, resulting in the flight of a million Somalilanders to Ethiopia. One U.N. expert who excavated some of the mass graveyards said, “people were chained together, women and children included…” Even though Siyad Barre died unceremoniously in exile, his agents who committed most of these heinous acts are today cabinet members and parliamentarians of the self-styled Transitional National Government (TNG), more commonly known as Arta group. It would be insensitive and callous to expect from Somaliland to embrace greater Somalia once again.
Today, Somaliland feels more akin to Ethiopia than Somalia. The treatment Ethiopia extended to the half a million refugees who left their homes when the Somali government was bombarding its own people, poisoning the water wells and destroying the major cities of Somaliland have deeply touched the people of Somaliland. Furthermore, the cultural, historical and the commercial relationships that existed between Ethiopia and Somaliland have been renewed and are flourishing.
Somalia ceased to exist as a political entity when the Siyad government collapsed in January 1991. Today, Somalia is a battleground between bandits, factions and Islamic fundamentalists, engaged in a tug of war to dethrone, destabilize and demolish each other in order to gain the upper hand. One of the determining attributes of statehood is maintaining law and order, and the Arta Group doesn´t control as much territory as Shatigadud or Yalaxaw does, and hence, has no more legitimacy than the rest of the factions. This hybrid of Islamic fundamentalists and the re-hash of Siyad cronies represent no constituency. Indeed many of the Arta group is accused of war crimes by the international community. Under these circumstances, who could sincerely fault Somaliland to re-establish her sovereignty?
Due to these atrocities, inequities and anarchy, Somaliland reclaimed her relinquished sovereignty in May 18, 1991. Today, Somaliland has a defined territory (ex-British Somaliland), permanent population and an effective independent government. According to the U.N. charter, Somaliland has fulfilled the legal requirements of statehood. Furthermore, the re-birth of Somaliland conforms to the OAU charter regarding the preservation of the colonial borders. Unlike the nominal Arta group, Somaliland has substance: a constitution, currency, flag, National anthem, passport, a legislative body, functioning judiciary and an elected government.
Additionally, recognizing Somaliland has tangible benefits for the region. The fact that Somaliland has reclaimed her sovereignty has diminished the prospects of resurrecting greater Somalia. It was just a month ago that Hussien Aideed has rekindled the aspirations of Greater Somalia including “Kilil 5″. This is a commonly held sentiment among the warlords in Somalia. The Horn should take note that recognizing Somaliland is the only insurance against the re-launching of the irredentist policy of Somalia. Recognition of Somaliland by the international community will not prejudice the economic prosperity of Somalia. By all accounts, Somaliland is territorially smaller, economically weaker, more devastated and less fortunate in natural resources than Somalia.
Granted that the cabinet positions are limited, the absence of Somaliland would make the distribution and the sharing of the political power fairer among the major clans in Somalia. Assigning political positions for an uninterested party-Somaliland- would only take away from a genuine and a deserving participant. More importantly, as a recognized state, Somaliland could play a greater role in the reconciliation process of Somalia. Why discriminate against Somaliland?
Ethiopia has met the brunt of the brutality carried out in the name of Greater Somalia. The 1963 and 1977/78 savage wars should serve as a reminder of what greater Somalia entails, and if in doubt, Ethiopia should reflect upon the widely held sentiment expressed by Aideed. The menace of “Greater Somalia” didn´t spare Kenya either. The constant military attacks under the pretext of “shifta” have traumatized Kenya. The constitution of Ethiopia allows cessation on the basis of self-determination and thanks to the Ethiopian Constitution and leaders, Eritrea is an independent state today. Somalis have already acknowledged the withdrawal of Somaliland: the only legitimate leader from the former Somalia, Mr. Hasan Shatigodud, of the new administration of Southwestern Somalia has recognized the withdrawal of Somaliland. It is high time that Ethiopia and Kenya realized the facts on the ground.
The aspiration of greater Somalia is euphemism for expansionism and the sacredness of the unity of Somalia is a delusion. It is worth mentioning that Somalis aren´t the only ethnic group, dispersed over the Horn, which shares common language and religion. The Afar is another nation that is scattered over three different states (Djibouti, Eritrea and Ethiopia). The unity of Somalia is no more sacred than that of the Afar Nation. The earlier the five-cornered star insignia of the Somali Republic banner is reconfigured, the safer the Horn will be.
In effect, the non-recognition has blocked access to bilateral and multi-lateral financial loans and grants for development. Due to this illegal sanction, Somaliland is succumbing to infant mortality, malnutrition, tuberculosis and other poverty related social-ills. This international sanction is mobilized by the Arab League namely Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Djibouti. Egyptians would like an unified, militarily strong Somali Republic in the Horn of Africa, in case Ethiopia attempts to deflect or deny the Nile water to Egypt. Saudi Arabia has designated Somalia as a satellite for her Wahabi sect, and Djibouti eyes Berbera port and the longest airfield in sub-Sahara Africa as formidable competition and a threat to her only source of income – the port of Djibouti.
Before the end of this year, Somaliland will be holding statewide multi-party elections for a new government. This coming multi-party election would end ten years of by and large peaceful traditional elections, and would usher into an era of universally accepted elections. What makes this coming election a milestone is that Somaliland has achieved all of this by herself, without the help of the international community. Recently, Somaliland held a referendum for a constitution underpinned by the withdrawal from the union and the people of Somaliland have overwhelmingly voted (97%) to withdraw from the union: certified by Initiative and Referendum Institute in Washington, D.C, independent international poll monitors. Somaliland has fulfilled the requirements of statehood once again, and the international Community has an obligation to respect the historical rights and the self-determination of the people of Somaliland. This prolonged non-recognition will not change the mind of the people of Somaliland, but it will only cause more hardship.
Somaliland is aware that the 14th Somali reconciliation conference is going to be held late April, tentatively, in Nairobi. Somaliland doesn´t envy the attention her sister-Somalia has received from the international community and wishes her good luck. Somaliland, however, has crossed the Rubicon, and says Adieu to former Somalia
From the Sandinistas in Nicaragua to the extremist indigenous groups in Ecuador, the “picketeers” in Argentina and the Peruvian “ethno-Cacerists,”* the entire region is now under the constant pressure of groups, leaders and parties that, in effect, use democratic freedoms unscrupulously to impose their points of view on all citizens.
The tactic has been successful. Consolidated democracies, such as Venezuela’s, have allowed political leaders to take power and destroy the basic elements upon which this system depends.
Regular elections alone are not sufficient to create a democratic government. Other conditions must also be present: a free press, a basic set of shared values, and a minimum degree of respect for political adversaries, the institutions and the laws.
When a political movement sees the existing institutions as a target to be destroyed and believes that its political opponents are enemies who must be crushed by any available means, elections become an implacable quest for power, much like the ones waged by the communists or the fascists, rather than a democratic contest.
Our democracies in Latin America are fragile and unstable. They are systems always ready to fall into the hands of extremists and demagogues; they are political constructions that cannot very well withstand social unrest or the conflicts that arise in all societies. Our citizens see the state not as an administrator of common affairs but as a kind of incarnation of providence; they want to be looked after, to receive constant handouts, or at least to hear radiant promises.
It is unfortunate that our electorates seem incapable of accurately assessing policy alternatives and are so easily swayed by the most primitive emotional appeals of political leaders out to conquer their quota of power. In our countries, lamentably, votes are won by haranguing against the rich and the oligarchy, by waving the flag of a superficial nationalism, shouting revolutionary slogans and stoking social resentments.
At this moment, it is impossible to know if any of these demagogic governments will be able to consolidate their dominions as Mussolini did in fascist Italy or if, worse yet, they will match Fidel Castro’s tenure as Cuba’s dictator for several decades. They don’t lack an authoritarian vocation, that’s for sure, but there are also factors that weigh against them.
The temptation of corruption and, above all, the impossibility of creating wealth through nationalistic and socialistic policies will make it difficult for these new authoritarian regimes to consolidate their power in Latin America. But the conclusion for now is unfortunately negative: our citizens seem to be intent on retaking the paths of the economic policies and forms of leadership that have led them to so much misery in the past. END OF ALI´S ARTICLE. ———-
Ali was given a farewell of dignity, gathering of leaders, old and young, supporter and adversaries. We pray Allah to bless his soul, forgive him and grand him the leisure of Janatul Fardows. Condolence to Ali´s large family headed by his mother, friends, colleagues, Kulmiye party and to Somaliland, particularly to Marodijeex region he hails from. Before the concluding paragraph, I leave you with a poem translated by the master of English, Rhoda Aideed Rageh (Lafcanbe):
They have announced the death of Ali Marshal
About an overturned vehicle. Oh my sleeplessness
A shield and a protection was that departed hero
A close and valued alley who never would nudge
He was the leading anchor in public debates
He was a shady tree surrounded with nobility
An excellent orator in public forums. Guard and
Guiding knowledge for Silanyo’s shoulder
He was a man of freedom however way I look
Darkness have descended Oh Herzi upon our goals
Death is inevitable yet am I feeling…… what?
For all the enemy of Somaliland is it an open field
Fault and evil perpetrators is all that left behind
Oh Allah make Jannah his abode as I wait for victory
And Make our country free for this is a place of prayer
Perseverance is the way to success Oh! My Kulmiiye.
Ali did his part and more in nation building. It is incumbent upon all of us to stand for saving our nation. It takes one person to take one little move that may open the eyes of the dormant majority. Morality and conscience ask justice. That is missing from the current status of the nation. Stand up and deliver your duty to turn the balance where it should be, for better destiny of Somaliland. Injustice is a fire that will engulf all, no region, no district and no clan will be safe. Relinquish now before it is too late. That was what Ali was doing, when fate took him to his creator. Some of us prefer to die fighting for tyranny, injustice and oppression; for corruption and enslavement of free citizens. I pray Allah not to make me and anyone I love one of them. Amiin.
Long live a democratic Somaliland where government is the servant of the people.

Tribute to Ali Muhammad Gulaid
We console ourselves with the knowledge that Ali M Gulaid had an extraordinary and productive life.
Ali Muhammad Gulaid aka Ali Marshal was born in Hargeisa in 1946. He grew up with lots of fond memories of Hargeisa and its surroundings. Ali graduated from Sheikh Secondary School with accolades 1967. As a young man Ali got his first job with the Port Authority of Barbera as an accountant. It is ironic that Ali leased a Chevy truck that he owned to the company that was building the road between Hargeisa and Barbera in the 1970s- the very road that claimed his life prematurely.
Ali left Somaliland for Saudi Arabia to fulfill his solemn duty along with his beloved mother to the Hajj in 1973. He continued his journey to Abu Dubai where he worked in a construction company as an accountant.
Ali left for the United States 1976. He lived in Ohio where he started his education at the Miami University Ohio along with some other Somalilanders- Mohamed Bihi younis, Ahmed Hussein Essa and Abdirahman Hassan Awil and later moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he finished his studies at Marquee University with a degree in accounting.
Ali moved to California after he graduated where he furthered his education and obtained a CPA (Certified Public Accounting). Shortly after that he got a job offer from San Jose County as a junior auditor. During his tenure with San Jose County he became a lead auditor. In this capacity he directed a team of auditors in covering auditing standards, attestation engagement standards, accounting and review services standards, audit risk alerts and other vital auditing-related guidance issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
Ali assumed a more challenging and rewarding position at the African Development Bank in Ivory Coast in 1991 as a project development manager. He oversaw projects in African nations that are funded by the African Development Bank. During his tenure in the African Development Bank Ali gained profound experience in not only marshaling projects from inception to finish, but also in nation building. He experienced how economy and politics are so intertwined in African nations and centralization of government power, corruption, nepotism and injustice hinder economic developments.
He has dealt representatives of nations who put their selfish interest before the interest of their people channeling the funds and the grants they received from the African Development Bank into their personnel uses, a practice that he abhorred which became déjà vu all over in Somaliland.
Ali came back to the United States in 2000. A man of his stature would not be unemployed, so he got a job at the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), a special purpose district responsible for public transit services, congestion management and specific highway improvement projects, as a Budget Analyst.
Ali was the founder of Waaberi Radio, a free internet radio that was a medium to decimate much needed information among the Somalilanders Diaspora about their beloved country. Ali’s broadcasting was fair and balanced. However, he never condoned irresponsible acts, such as the misdirection of the country, misappropriations of nation’s wealth, grotesque injustice and the abuse of the courts that became business as usual for the current regime. Ali authored numerous articles about Somaliland that were both exposing and enlightening
Ali was a scholar and a gentleman, honest and patriotic. Ali was bestowed with a mindset that would not forbear injustice. He was a one man army who made seismic shift in the political landscape of Somaliland. He was striving to reform the culture of political corruption of Somaliland into a system that is conducive to foster economic development, social justice and lasting stability.
He could have retired into the sunset of California, enjoyed the comfort and the amenities that come with it, but as a true patriot he gave up all that to help his follow Somalilanders. In fact, he opted the last three years of his retirement so he would be available for Somaliland at a critical juncture. He bridged the gap between the youth and the elders, reconciled internally convoluting differences among Kulmiye members and gave many others hope.
He was my friend, my hero and I will miss him immensely as many others will.
May God bless him and have a mercy on his soul.

Waxaana la isku raacay inuu Cali Marshal ahaa astaan u taagan la dagaalanka musuqmaasuqa, toosinta & tayaynta maamulka, sinaanta & cadaalada iyo xorriyada caamka ah ee dadweynaha reer Somaliland. Illaahay waxaan uga beryayaa inuu Saaxiibkeen danbi dhaaf iyo naxariis uga dhigo ducadii badnayd ee daafaha dunida looga duceeyay.

Tribute To Ali Marshal
I was in Addis-Ababa Airport heading to Hargeisa, Somaliland, when I was told that Ali Gualid has passed away due to car accident between Berbera and Hargeisa road. Even though, the death is waiting for all of us and no one can not escape from it, there is a Somali proverb that says, “The death is ok with Camel Boy and someone you don’t know”.
I have known Ali Gualid for a long time which we were in California, USA. Ali Gualid was a Certified Public Account (CPA), Banker, Broadcaster, Activist and well-educator Somali Lander. Ali always puts the interest of his country and his people before anything else with passion, grace and conviction.
Ali Gualid sudden death is not alone to his family but it touches all Somali Landers inside our country and in Diaspora. I am extremely lucky to participate his funeral which I have not seen the magnitude which all Somali Landers has given their respect with this great man.
Ali Gualid was composed with multiple talents: he was a visionary, man of principal, Certified Public Accountant, great thinker, activist and a man with a profound sense of history. He instructed to the proposition that the history of the past must be a path to the future, that the mistakes of the past should not be repeated again, but rather learned from it and move the country forward not backward and that Somaliland had no option but to reclaim its independence, that democracy is the right ingredient for the country’s social and economic development, and that democracy is the country’s flag-ship to international recognition
Ali Gualid was a man of vision; he was the first man who opened the Waberi Radio in San Jose, California which he named, the voice of Somali People. Ali was a podcaster and he always brings on his Radio many issues that were very useful to our people. Ali never afraid of telling the truth to everyone including the Somaliland elected officials. He was always very articulate on his Articles and even on his Radio Podcasting air time.
Ali Gualid has every thing that an individual will dream of, a decent job with high pay, living in the United States of America, especially the best state which is San Jose, California, but he chosen rather to make useful and help his country and his people for his knowledge and expertise without looking back a bit his own interest but rather his countries ’interest.
For the first meeting of SOPRI in Los-Angeles, Ali Gualid has helped the late founder of the Somaliland Policy and Reconstruction Institute (SOPRI). He was a keynote speaker of that meeting and presented a great paper that he laid out effectively the road-map of Somaliland and how to achieve a quick recognition with a clear vision and to promote international recognition for Somaliland.
It is very difficult to put a scale on Ali’s contribution in the quest for development of democracy and Somaliland recognition, but there is no doubt in my mind that he assisted and ignited the recognition cause and effort, which was not active before his effort. Ali was always so busy not to leave the job solely to the government but that the Diaspora educators should be actively involved too and, as Ali had demonstrated, they could give back something to their country of origin not the country that someone took their residency or citizenship.
Ali was a dreamer, a visionary, loyal to his country, his party and a doer. And so we all Asked Allah to forgive him and enter his paradise. Ali has played a major role for supporting his party agendas and his country progress. The level of his involvement was evident by the amount of time he spent in the preparatory work. During the last presidential elections, those of us in the Diaspora remained in regular contact and he was always very keen when it comes on fair elections and fair voting registrations. Recently, Ali was appointed by his Party to the Chairman of the up-coming Presidential elections on the Western Regions of Somaliland and he was the right person for that job. Now he is gone, the Party and the country will have a vacuum that needs to be resumed.
May Allah put his soul rest and peace and wash with cold water and enter his paradise.

Abwaan Axmed Maxamed Nuur-dhako
Warka sida jantaha iyo madfaca jibinta aan moodnay,
Ee maanta dalkaba jiidhay ee jeex kastaba gaadhay,
Jariidaadku goortay qoreen amase joornaalku,
Judhii ay maqleen bay dadkii wada jareeyeene,
Nin waliba halkii uu ku jiray jaw ka soo yidhiye,
Jariiradda iyo oohintiyo jiibta iyo taaha,
Iyo qaar iyaga oo aan jug qabin juuqba laga waayay,
Badhna jiifka aamine wadnaha jararacdiisiiye,
Mooraalka jiifsaday iyaga oo cagaha jiidaya,
Jawigoo beddelan bay dadkii jidadka buuxsheene,
Allahayow jannee oo ka yeel Nebiga jaarkiisa,
Heduse way jirtaye geeriyaha midiba waa jaade,
Haddii ruux jacayl loo qabaa dunida joogaayo,
Oo malag arwaax uu jar yidhi jamasho ay baajin,
Jaliilkeenu kuu soo diray ayaa iilka jiifsadaye,
Ambiyaalihii lama jareen jawharta ahayde,
Dhammaanteen jidkaa geeridaa jaa’is loo yahaye,
Ninba inuu jiraba waa mid aan laga jawaabayne,
Jibaadkiyo baroor maatadaa jawda damin weyday,
Jagaduu banneeyay ilmada jagac ka siiyeene,
Allahayow janee oo ka yeel Nebiga jaarkiisa,
Jeedaalo goortaan ku dayo jabadkii aan aallay,
Ee uu jarmaadiyo kallaho igaga soo jiiday,
Jidkii uu dadweynaha la maray jaranjartii dawga,
Jilbis iyo abees iyo wuxuu halaq la soo jiidhay,
Jiidh debecsanaantuu bulshada kula hejaan-qaaday,
Uu kala jihaynaayay iyo nabad jacalkiisii,
Jambaynkii iyo hoguu kala bixiyo jar iyo laalaadka,
Haddii aan distoor jirin dadyahow tala majoogteene,
Jidkuu sii banneeyay anfacay maamulkoo jiray,
Markuu tiirar aan naga jabayn jooji yuu tegaye,
Allahayow jannee oo ka yeel nebiga jaarkiisa,
Jisaskii Qur’aanka oo dhan lagu jaan-gooyo,
Jaliilkaan baryanaa inuu naga ajiibaaye,
Jirabkiyo ciqaabtiyo raboow jaynafkiyo oonka,
Jahanama kuwaa lagu guray ee jixijix loo diiday,
Ilaahay kuwaa jabay adiga kulama soo joojo,
Jamhuuriyadda Somaliland shacab wixii jooga,
Ubadkaaga kuu jeelan iyo jaanka ahalkaaga,
Iyana samiir jamiilbay naftii ugu jawaabeene,
Allahayow jannee oo ka yeel nebiga jaarkiisa.
