'This research constructs the historical evolution of the Islamic movement in Somalia from 1950 to 2000, focusing on the Islah (Islaax) Movement as a case study. The thesis is divided according to four chronological phases: the Islamic revival, the growth of Islamic consciousness, the Islamic awakening, and the Islamic movements. The first chapter provides background and deals with the revival of the Sufi Brotherhood in the nineteenth century and its encounter with colonialism. The second chapter examines the rise of Islamic consciousness during Somalia‟s struggle for independence after the return of Italy to Somalia to administer the UN trusteeship in 1950. The third chapter, the Islamic awakening, deals with the early formation of Islamic organizations such as Nahdah, Ahal, and Waxdah and their confrontation with the military regime.
This chapter also provides a case study of the secular family law adopted by the military regime in 1975 which fragmented and radicalized the Islamic awakening into Islaax, Takfiir, and Itixaad by the 1980s. The fourth chapter looks at the emergence of the Islamic movements starting in 1978 with the foundation of Islaax. In view of the significance of this organization as a symbol of moderation in turbulent war-torn Somalia, this research focuses on it as a case study in two of its historical periods. In examining the first formative period (1978-1990), the nature of Islaax and its challenges, limitations, achievements, and activities are explored in the context of the military regime, armed oppositions and competing Islamic organizations. The second period (1990-2000) examines the interaction of Islaax with the collapsed state and the impact of the civil war on this movement, culminating in its organizational restructuring in 1992. It further explores the political and social strategies that Islaax implemented in the 1990s, most noticeable in the education sector and the National Reconciliation Conference held in Djibouti in 2000.

315 pages, explains the history of Islam in somalia, various islamic localised institutions, the various sufi brotherhoods and the skirmishes they had.

It's quite sad seeing western Somalis be able to name foreign islamic scholars and football players but can hardly name you one Somali scholar prior to 1960 (when we became independent).

I have made several threads on various Somali scholars a while back on this forum too, if you go back a couple of pages.

Islam came to Somalia during the nabi was in Makkah. Zeylac was ruled by the Ahbash (Ethiopians).

Sufism came later, but I know Imam Zeylaci was the leader of the Ahnaf.

1200-1400 where epic times.

Just imagine grazing your camels and walking through a herd elephants and knowing you're always being stalked by lions and predators who's numbers across Africa dwarfed our own population.

Prideful expansionist and merchants trading rhino horns and textiles to sell to naked kikuyu tribes and oromos.

Our nomads and merchants covered the coowraads (genitials) of beasts; who now cover us with lies and deceit.
