During the Prophet pbuh's time, burying girls was common but he outlawed that horrid practice/tradition. You can hold onto to good traditions but all the trash like FGM need to be eradicated as soon as possible. Humans are meant to develop, keep staying stuck in 1600s and wonder why your country is stagnant. If Somalia at least stuck with Islamic principle rather than some outdated cultural bs, we would be 100x better.you're a western woman. we can't see eye to eye. i think you should leave Somali matters alone and embrace whatever country you're living in.
our Somali forefathers have laid down some rules for us to preserve our people and culture. unlike the cadaan people, we will abide by them.
