To celebrate International Women’s Day, we highlight Dr. Hawa Abdi, better known as the “Saint of Somalia” as she has been nominated for the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize. Click here to read about Angelina Jolie, the amazing actor and humanitarian as she tells the story of Dr. Hawa Abdi, the inspiring Somali obstetrician whose medical camp in Somalia has literally saved thousands. After hearing about her nomination for the Peace Prize, Dr. Hawa noted that in the last 27 years, she has given Somalis her heart and her soul without losing hope. The Nobel Peace Prize nomination comes at the right time lifting her morale and keeps her hope alive. If she wins the Prize, she hopes to empower Somali women economically and give a home to homeless Somalis. Make sure to look out for Dr. Hawa’s memoir next year! We will share more news about other Somali nominees for example for the Nobel Prize in Literature. Be Inspired! Be Positive! Be Somali! 

Well deserved! May God preserve her.

By Tariq Ramadan

I overheard some of these points during his talk at RIS 2011. I just cant get enough. May Allah(SWT) preserve him.

ADORBS.

Whilst doing homework, I tend to look at pictures from my trip a bit too much.

This picture of my nephews makes me want to to book a ticket to Hargeisa STAT.

And the plot thickens…

MJ — So in this world, who can you trust? Definitely not the person you ask to watch your laptop in the library while your gone, right? Right?? 

Update: the result of asking my younger brother to “watch” my laptop in the  library.

And the countdown begins

The lack of preparation has finally struck me while glancing over anti-malaria prescription drugs. Never before when traveling to Somalia has any of my family members been concerned of possibly catching the virus until now. 

Alhamduillah, I just booked my appointment and now I’m off to do the same for my hoyoo.

Next thing to do: find a proper outlet plug to charge electronics. bismillah.
