XUS IYO XUSUUSTA INANKEYGA MAXAMED AXMED XASAN CARWO-QAYBTI LABAAD

XUS IYO XUSUUSTA INANKEYGA MAXAMED AXMED XASAN CARWO-2


 Maanta waa salaasa, salaasadi hore ayuu xabaal galay Maxamed, haddaba aan ku horeysiyo bushaaro iyo waxaan saaka la kulmay.


Xalay waan duceeyey sidaan habeen walba u duceysto, waxaan raaciyey in Alle i bushaareeyo in wiilkeygu helay naxariistiisa. Waan arkay iyada oo dhab ah.
lixdii subaxnimo oo daqiiqado dhimman, ayuu wiilkeygu riyo ahaan sariirta iso dhinac fadhiistay, deedna isagoo dhoola caddeynay i kiciyey. Waan toosay, deedna intaan alxamdulilaa idhi ayaan u kacay salaadii subax. Waa xiliga salaada la tukado Cardiff. Waa riyadaan sugaayey een Alle ka baryey.
Hurdadi ayaan dib ugu noqday, haddana 9kii ayuu wiilkeygu i kiciyey, deedna anigoo guriga ka baxaayey ayuu intuu foorarsaday ii geliyey kabaha..Ma shaa Allah, waa baarinimadaan ku aqiinay iyo xataa inayna xabaashu celinayn jaceylka uu ii hayo. Alle ha ku ciseeyo Maxamadow, Alle gudka hakugu janneeyo, jaceylkaad noo heyso dartii ku hel jaceylka Alle.

Bushaaraddan Alle igu deeqay aan ku dhammeeyo shukriga Alle iyo mahadda Raxmaan. Haddaba  aan idin dhandhansiiyo dhacdooyinkii i taabtay iyo maalintii aaska, waa Salaasadi taariikhdu ahayd 11/11/2014.

Waxa loo kalahay dhinaca dhakhtarka iyo soo qaadista maydka, waxaanu sii diyaarinay rugtii lagu maydheeyey oo ah Masjidka Jalalia, ee Grangetown, Cardiff. Wax yar dabadeedba waxa na soo gaadhay maydkii. Qunyar oo naxriisi la socoto ayaa ani iyo walaaday iyo wiilashaan abtiga u ahay u qaadnay Maxamed annagoo qof waliba gaarkii ugu duceynaayo, una akhriyaayo quraanka, ilmaduna naga da'ayso, waxa na weheliya Sheekh Cumar, iyo Sheekh Aadan, iyo Salaama Funeral Service oo shaqo ahaan  leh ruqsadda xabaalista iyo waxii soo raacaba.


Maa sha Allah, MAXAMED jidhkiisa waxaad mooda ruux hurda, nadaafad siyaadda ah iyo farxad ayaan ku arkay. Waxaan bilaabay inaan maydho, si walba waan u maydhnay, waa jidh nadiif ah ood moodo in hore loo soo maydhay. Xubnaha faraha ayaan faraheyga dhex galiyey mise xubin waliba wey laabmeysa oo waxaad mooda inay nooshahay. Gadh weyn  oo madow oo isku joog ah ayaan ku arkay oonan hore ugu arag, waa gadh aad moodo in loo feedhay. Gacantaan mariyey, dhabanada ayaan si miyir ah gacanta ugu foodhaqay, anigoo leh Allaahu Akbar, indhaha ayaan iyana sidoo kale u maydhay, deedna dhinaca midig ayaanu ku bilownay, iyo dhinaca bidix. Sida waajibku yahay waxaanu ku maydhnay udugii iyo carfigii leyna faray.

MAXAMED wuu asturnaa waxuu xidhnaa macawistiisii iyo waliba nigiskiisii oo nadiif ah. Gananteydaan kaga saaray. Maa sha Allah, jidhkiisa meel aan nadiif ahayn ma arag. Meel walba waan maydhay, waxaana iiga muuqday calamadhaha ehlo jannaha. Xubnaha jidhkiisu mey qonbobin, mid walba sideeda ayey u laabmeysay, nadaafadna u raaci iyo udug intaanaan udugii sunnahaba ku maydhin.  Ilmadu heyska socotee qalbigu wuu farxay, masxaduna Alle ayey u mahadnaqday. 


Maxamed,awoogii Cumar Carte iyo ayeeydi AHU Shukri Jirde
  
Waxaan yaqiinsaday in Alle baarinimadii iyo wanaagii u ugu bedelay naxariis iyo raalinimadiisa. Waa guul, ayna jirin mid ka qiimo weyni. Waana mid bilowga werwer ku saaqaayo, oo waxaad kala kulmi aad maskaxda ku mashquuliso, dhammaadkeyduna waa mid amba guul aad u arki amba guul darro. Maydhistu waxay muujisa in ruuxu yahay ehelu janno in kale. Wiilkeyga Maxamed waxaan ka marag ahay in caalamadihii wanaagsanaa aan dhammaan arkay. Waa ishaarooyin iga farxiyey, Alle ha rumeeyee.


 Waxa la soo gaadhay marxalad aanu aad uga baqaynay. Ehelkii oo dumar ah ayaa dalbay inay soo booqdaan maydka kolka maydhistu dhammaato. Waxa la gaadhay marxaladii oo dumarkii oo laba baabuur ku jira ayaa fiyaaradda isa soo taagay. Walow ragga qaar aad u baqeen anigu waan  aqaanay iimanka reerka oo umaan biqin, walow aan taxadur ahaa.

Waxa hogaaminaaya dumarka hooyadii oo ah ruux iimaan badan, hadh iyo habeen quraan ruug ah oo magaalada tacsi walba hormood ka ahyd una adkeysay qalbiga in  badan oo ehelkoodu dhintay, maanta se waa iyada ruuxa qalbiga loo qaboojinayaa, waxa la socota inanteyda Najaat oo aan aad uga baqaayo, habaryartii Xayaat, habaryartay, eddooyin,  habarwadaag, ayeeyooyin. Baqdinti wey beenowday. Waxa bilowday hooyadii oo intay dhunkatay u laqintay jawaabaha looga baahanyahay inuu ugu jawaabo malaa'iigta su'aalaha qabriga u xil saaran. Waxay gacanta ku haysaa madaxiisa iyadoo quraan akhriyeysa iyo duco. Walow indhahu ooyayeen ax afkeeda lagama maqal.

 Waxa xigtay habaryartii Xayaat Cumar Carte, wallaahi aad ayey eriyadeedu ii taabteen "Ma shaa Allah, waad qurux badantay, waad nuureysa, waad udgoontay, habaryar waxaa kaa muuqda astaamihii jannada, Ma Shaa Allah, Alle qabriga hau kuu nuuro, ha kuu waasiciyo, Alxamdulilaa waad nuureysaa', Xayaad si is dabojoog ah ayey ugu celcelisaa.

Waxa la soo gaadhay xiligii inanteyda Najaat oo aan aad uga cabsi qabo. Ma shaa Allah, wey dhunkatay deedna dhegtiisa ayey afka u dhoweysay; ' Waxaad ii ahyd wax walba, walaal ayaad ii ahayd, taageere iyo ilaaliye ayaad ii ahyd, waalid ila taliya, ii sheekeeya, iga war haya ayaad ahyd, Alle qabriga ha kaaga dhigo guri janno, dambigaaga ha ku dhaafo jaceylka aad noo heysay iyo sidaad waalidkaa baari ugu ahyd." Waan jidhidhicooday oo dhidid iyo ilmaa isku darsantay. 

Waligay ma arag mana maqal dumar ka calool adag, ka duco wanaagsan, ka iiman weyn xiligan oo kale. Waxaanu aheen rag ahaan, duul qalbigu qoyey oo gacmaha kor u taagaaya aamiin ka dabo leh ducadii haweenka iimaanka buuxa iyo geesinimada siyaadada ah na tusay. Intey hal hal u dhunkadeen ayey bilaa baroor, bilaa laab garaac, bilaa timo jiid ay sanqadh la'aan u baxayn iyagoo baabuurta u raacay dhinaca masaajidka lagu tukanaayo.

Waxa loo kacay dhjinacii majid Al-Nuur ee Butetown. Irridda waxa tubnaa khalqi. Illaahay oo mar qudha nagu soo dhaqaayey. Waxaana la kala boobay naxashkii. Walow rag badani inta aanu naxashka sidan garabka igu salamaayey ismaanu taagin ilaa aanu gudaha galnay. Kolkaan dhignay ayaa mar kale la boobay tacsida iyadoo laabta laabta ley saaraaayo, badina indhahooda ilmo buuxisay. Salaadii duhur ka dib ayuu Sheekh Maxamed bilaabay salaadi maydka iyo duco qalbigeyga kicisay, ilmada indhuhuna ay u dareerayeen sida roobka, sankuna la wadaagay indhaha oohinta. Waan farxay sida masjidku u buux dhaafay oo dul iyo hoosba loo buuxiyey iyo sida koronkorada ay dumarku u buuxiyeen goobta loo qorsheeyey haddana aan laga maqlayn sanqadh qudha. Ma shaa Allah. Waa ehlu kheyr oo waa astaamaha ehlu jannaha. Waan farxay. Alle ayaan u mahadnaqay

Waxa loo baxay sagootintii ugu dambeysay iyo qabrigii. Waxa dhaqaaqay baabuur xadi aan ku sheego aanan garanayn. Waa Cardiff oon cidi ka maqnayn oo waliba ay waheliyaan inta ka timid magaalooyinka UK, Canada, Holland iyo Sacuudiga. Waxa doogii xabaalaha buuxiyey khalqi Soomali iyo Islaam kaleba leh. Waxa aasku noqday mid ka duwan kuwaan hore Cardiff oga qayb galay. Waxa meedka laga saaray sanduuqi hore loogu aasi jiray waxaana loo aasay habka Islaamka, iyadoo majarafado leysu dhiibay lagu dhammeeeyey ciidii, oon marna loo baahan cagaftii la miciinsan jiray. Waxa xabaashu tahay meel koone ah oo geed hoostiis ah, oo haddii ruux dooranaayo habaasha aan cidini dhaafteen. Illaahay ayaa u dooray wiilkeyga. Waxa bilaabantay ducadii oo in badan oo joogtay ilmada ay u soo raacday oohin. Waxaan ogaaday saaxiibnimadu qiimaha ay leedahay, kuwii ugu dhowaa saaxiibadii oohin ayey ceshan kari waayeen. Waxaan ogaaday inaan raggu cabsi iyo damqasho la ooyin ee ay la ooyaan jaceyl iyo murugo.

Inankeyga Maxamed waxuu ku dhintay 36 jir ka waxtar badan boqol jir. Waxuu ifka kaga tegey wiil iyo xaas. Waxuu haystay Shahadada Ganacsiga iyo Maaliyadda, oo uu waliba ilaa yaraantii si dhab ah ugu camal falay. Ganacsade aan maalina lacagta samofalka qaadan ayuu ahaa (Social Benefit).  Wax walba se waxa ka weyn sida uu noogu ahaa baari, sida uu u ahaa ruux akhlaaq wacan oo dadkoo dhan kula socda wanaag, ruux aan xumaan aqoonin, cid waligii xaman, dadka wanaagiisa uun arka, waqtigu u xisaabsan yahay. In badan oo sifooyinkaas ah aniga wuu igaga wacna dhab ahaan. Wiilkaaga oo kaa wacnaada, waa wax lagu faano. 

Waxaan halkan uga mahadnaqayaa dadka tirada badan ee sida is dabojooga ah guriga noogu yimid, kuwa aaska ka qayb qaatay, kuwa foonka aan ka nasan kuwa emailka iyo baraha bulshada ducada iyo tacsida ku muujiyey, Alle kheyr heydinka siiyo, murugada waad nala qaybsateen. Waxaan si gaar ah ugu mahadnaqayaa inta iyagoon aniga i aqoon, Maxamedna aqoon ee maqaalkeygu ku kalifay inay qaaradaha dunida iga soo wacaan. Aad ayaan kalgacalkooda u dareemey. Waad noo duceyseyn ee Alle ducada heydinka aqbalo, heydinkana abaal mariyo.



Ducaan ku soo afjarayaa, ee Allow Maxamed qabriga u waasici, u nuur, ugana dhig guri ka mid ah guryaha Jannatul Ferdoos. Allow ka yeel Maxamed kuwa orodka hilaaca ku mara siraadka, Allow ka yeel kuwa la jaara Rasusha iyo Anbiyada, Allow naga wiil qiys ahaan kuwa ku kulma jannada. Amiin. Fadlan aamiin dhaha. Alle heydin gargaaro.

XUS IYO XUSUUSTA INANKEYGA MAXAMED AXMED XASAN CARWO-QAYBTA KOWAAD

XUS IYO XUSUUSTA INANKEYGA MAXAMED AXMED XASAN CARWO


Waxa I soo maray toddobaad murugo, toddobaad aan nolasha ka bartay wax aanan ka baran cimri gay. Waxa aan xaqiisaday sida talaabo kasta oon qaadayna u baahantay oggolaanshe Alle, waan aaminsanaa bal se hadda dhab ayaan u taabtay iyo si gooni ah oo sahlan. Adoo bari is leh aad ayaad u dhaqaaqi Galbeed adoo waqooyi dooni ayaad koonfur u boqooli haddaan Alle ku waafajin. 

Ubadku waa ammaano Alle inagu deeqay, sida nafteenu lafteedu inoogu tahay ammaano. Alle xiliga uu doono ayuu ammaanadiisa la noqdaa. In yar ayaa taas xusuusan inta ka horeysa kolka loo yeedho. Waxa aynu nahay mayd socda, waxa dhammaan yar iyo weyn, rag iyo dumar, maalqabayn, iyo qaataa ma dhergi waa mid aynu u simanay, qofba dharaarta Ebbe u yeedho uu xijaaban, uu dunida ka baqooli.



Alle waxuu I siiyey wiil baari ah, wiil aan waligii iga cadheysiin, wiil kolkaan ku qayliyo aan ii jawabin, madaxa hoos u roga, deedna raali gelin madaxa iga dhunkada, wiil jaceylka aniga iyo hooyadii iyo walaashi ka horeysiiya naftiisa . Wiil xaaskiisa iyo inanka uu dhalay u diyaariya mustaqbal wacan, ku fakira berrito haddu Alle u yeedho waxa uu uga tegaayo. Wiil yaqaan culeeska deyntu leedahay oo iska bixiyey meherka inta badani xalaashato. Wiil ogsoon inaan geeri meel dheer jirin. Dardaarankiisu joogto yahay. Siduu u xaqiiqsanaa geerida iyo siduu u aaminsanaa shaqada ayaa ahyd rumeyn uu si ficil ah u rumeystay xadiiskii Rasuulka SCW ee ahaa “ Aaakhirana u shaqayso sidaad manta dhiman, adduunkana u shaqeeye sidaad waligaa jireyso”.


 Waxuu ahaa nin dadiisa ka weyn, ka waayo aragsan, ka fikir dheer, aan waqti kaga lumin waxaan if iyo aakhiro waxyeelo mooyee aan waxtar lahayn.  Nin af gaaban oon aqoon xan, xaasid, xumaan. Nin afkiisa iyo gacantiisu waxtar mooyee ayna waxyeelo aqoon. Nin salaanta islaamka aan dhaafin, cidda uu la macaamilaayo gaal iyo muslinba ula dhaqma ixtiraam iyo wanaag. Deeqsi sadaqada hoos u bixiya ehelna sooryeeya, saaxiibna taakuliya, caruur iyo ciroolaba nin ka qosliya,kaftan aan turxaan lahayn iyo waano ku maaweeliya dhalinta.


Maxamed waxuu ahaa nin yaraan ku tabo galay, iskey barbartaagay, hawsha aan loo tilmaamin, is dira oo garashada Alle siiyey ay aad u sarayso. Meel kasta oo waxqabad u baahan ishiisu wey qabata,gacantiisuna ma dhaafto. 
Waxuu ahaa nin hamo dheer oo rabay inuu dhiso boqortooyo ganacsi. Waxuu u baahnaa taageeradeyda oon ka baaqday. Waxaan Isla garanay Ramadaan ka hor inaan hawl galno oo hamigiisa aan gacan qabto iyo Hargeysa oon ka bilowno. Waa mid ay adagtay inaan xaqiijiyo kol haddaan waayey xamaasaddii iyo awooddii Maxamed. 
Waligey kama warwerin in Maxamed meel qaloocan maro, ruux dhalinyaro ku noqday waayeel, ka dhowr san xumaan, baari noo ah, jaceylka u noo hayaa ahaa mid aan qiyaas lahyn, mid laga helo ruux Alle hadeeyey, ayuu ahaa.

Soomalidu waxay tidhi Alle ma naxo ee wuu naxariistaa. Waa dhab. Maxamed wax yar ayuu xanuunsaday. Intabana samir, iyo adkeysi uu nooga naxay werwer ayuu ku qariyey. Waxuu ka dhigay arrin sahlan, isagoon afkiisa “waan wacanay iyo Alxamdulilaa” maahee aan wax kale laga maqal. Waxaan qoomameeya waa maqnaansha anigoo wax mashquul ah ahayn, anigoo awood caafimaad iyo mid maadiba haya, Alle iima qorin inaan nolol ku gaadho. Talaabada qoran, waxaan gaadhay isagoo mootan 20 sacadood. 
Waxaanan iloobi kareyn sida uu sida ubadka noola macaamili jiray. Kolkuu guriga soo galo, waxuu sida cunto, waxuu sida macmacaan, waxuu sii qaada dhar u baahan kaawiyad, isagoo ka qarinaya hooyadi. Waxa noo soo noqda dharkii oo bacaysan sidii ooy yihiin dhar cusub. Marna ma aha wax aanu u dirnay, waliba waan ku canaantay wax badan. Dheg uma dhigo oo ma jecela in aniga iyo hooyadii gacan u qaadno hawl nooc kastaba ha ahaatee. Guriga meelaha u baahan dhismaha, gidaar amba loox mar uu arkay garanmeysid waa isagoo garaacaaya, toosinaaya, cid ugu yeedhaaya haddii loo baahdo.
Waxaan xusuustaa sida wiilkiisa yar uu noogu xidhay, waa isagoo sida, oo noo keena, kuna ababiyey  awoowo iyo ayeeyo. Allow nooga dhig mid na xusuusiya wanaagii Maxamed.

Waa ammaano Alle la noqday. Waxaan is dhex dhigay duco iyo xusuus kolba ay ilmadu indhaheyga buuxshaan. Ma jirto cid ila wadaagta, cid og dhibta I heysata, cid faataxada ila ajiibta. Waa diyaarad dhexdeed iyo habeen guure. Ducada waxaan raaciyaa mid dhankeyga ah oon Alle ka baryo inuu iga dhaafo waxaan ka gaabiyey Maxamed. “Allow amaanadaada haddaan hagaajiyey Maxamed ugu naxariiso, haddaan hagradayna Allow iga dhaaf, Maxamedna ku abaal mari jaceylka uu noo hayey”.
Waa subax hore, saacaddu waa lixdi subaxnimo, waa axad 9kii November, waxaan ka soo baxay madaarkii iyadoo ay iga horyimaadeen ehelki. Waan adkeystay oo afkaan xidhay laakiin indhaha iyo sanka kama ilaalin karo qoyaan iyo ilmo. Dariiqa Cardiff, waxuu no ahaa aamus. Murugo se waa ta guriga igu sugaysa oo ehelkii oo dumar u badani joogaan. Waxba idiinkama tilmaami karo dhacdadii oo waa mid aydin iska garan. Waalow ayna jirin baroor,iyo qaylo.

Waxaan balan leyga sameeyey inaan Maxamed ku siyaarto qolka maydka. Waxa la soo dhigay qol loogu talo galay in ehelku ku siyaarto, oo aad u nadiif ah, u gaar ah oo dugsoon. Waan is dul tagay oon aad indhaha u dul dhigay wiilkaan jeclaa oo mayd ah. Madaxiisaan gacanta saaray deedna quraan iyo duco ayaan bilaabay. Dhegta midig ayaan kaga eedaamay. Waligay mayd ma arag cidini waxba iima sheegin. Waa ani iyo dareenkey. Gacantaan wajiga mariyey, gadh qurxoon oo isku buuxa oonan waligay ku arag yaan u salaaxay, dibnaha iyo indhaha yaan qunyar gacanta mariyey.Labada dhabanba waan ka dhunkaday. Deedna jidhkiisa kale oo asturan ayaan quraan dacal ilaa dacal ku akhriyey.

 Waxaan dareemey in Maxamed I maqlayo oo balan iyo hadal ayaan dhegta u saaray. Waan farxay oo wajiga Maxamed waa mid nuuraaya, waa mid u heelan inuu u boqoolo dhinaca Alle. Waa waji ehlu janno. Waxa qolka igu weheliya Laba walaaladay ah iyo seddex wiil oon abti aan u ahay iyo wiil aan ilmaadeer nahay.Dhammaan duco iyo quraan akhris ayey wadaan, ilamaduna labada dhaban ayey ka da'aysaa. Muddo saacad ah ayaa nala siiyey, mararka qaar waa ley baneeya si aan keli ula hadlo. 

Waxaan isku daynay in xabaasha naloo dedejiyo oo burrito oo isniin ah nalooga dhigo. Gaalo Axadda ma shaqayso laakiin waa naloo furay xafiiskii Dhimashada ee Dawladda Hoose, kolkii warqaddi dhakhtarka aanu dhiibnay ayaa wax yar oo meel ku qoran ay gabadhi hoos u akhriday. Dhakhtarka saxeexay ma aha kii maydka arkay, oo waxuu ku qoray inaanu maydka arag bal se uu la hadlay dhakhtarkii kale. Waa amar Alle oo ruux waliba ayaanta uu xabaasha galaayo wey cayimantay dhinaca Alle.
   
 Waa isniin iyo rag iyo dumarkii Cardiff iyo meelo kale oo badan oo gurigeyga ku soo qulqulaaya. Waa dad wacan oo qoys keliye u dhaqma. Waa leyla qaybsaday murugada. Waxa socdaal dheer soo galay reer Holland, Sacuudiga, Maraykan, iyo Kanada ehel ka yimid. Saaka waxa iyagu si lexaad leh u yimid reer London, Manchester Bristol, iyo Birmingham.


Salaadii duhur ayaan masjidka Grangetown oo gurigeygu ku yaalo oo ah mid ay maamulaan Pakistaani u salad tagnay. Salaaddi ka dib ayuu iimamaki makarafoonka qabsaday: “Waxaan u duceynaynaa marxuumka Maxamed Axmed Xasan Carwo”, ilma indhaha I buuxisay, duco dheer oo wacan oo qiimo leh ayuu akhriyey anaguna aamiin ka dibo nidhi. Waxa xigtay in dhammaan la kacay oo laabta laabta ley saaray oo tacsi kal iyo lab ah ruux ruux loo qadimey. Maa sha Alla. Islaamnimadu wacana, waa kolkaad ogaanayso inaynu nahay ummad keliya.

Wey idinku dheertay ee aan intan ku soo xidho ilaa kulan kale.Waa inoo qormada labaad Insha Allah iyo maalintii aaska iyo shucuur lama iloobaan ah. Maalin dheer, dareen gooni ah, iyo dhacdooyin lama filaan ah aan la kulmay. Dharaar aan yaqiinsaday in wiilkeygu Alle u noqday isagoo ka raali ah. Waa qabrigii oo u noqday guri ka mid ah guryaha jannada, Insha Allah.

A TRIBUTE TO MY SON MOHAMMED AHMED H ARWO AND PARENTAL TESTIMONY

A TRIBUTE TO MY SON MOHAMMED AHMED HASSAN ARWO: A PARENTAL TESTIMONY

A TRIBUTE TO MY SON MOHAMMED AHMED H ARWO AND  PARENT'S TESTIMONY 

"Who, when afflicted with calamity say: "Truly To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return."" [The Qur'an; Chapter 2 (Al Baqarah - The Cow) : Verse 156]



 Our destiny is prearranged. I would like to share with you my poignant experience of an episode of our life that waits us all. For five days I learned more about life journey than my entire life, the death of my son Mohammed and the process I went through till we put him in his last room on the world and first hereafter. It is a tribute to dear son and a lesson to us all. 


Death respects no age, no gender, and no strength. We saw daily young dying, old surviving, strong dying and weak surviving. We witness fragile patients that survive on comma for decades. All these testimony and yet deep in our mind we think it is the old that dies. Every one of us will taste death at preset time by no one else but by our creator. That time can be sooner or later by the will of Allah.

I buried my beloved son MOHAMED yesterday, a young man at the best epoch of human life, man with entrepreneurial talent always thinking of building empires without neglecting his duty towards Allah and to us. He needed my input which I grossly failed. I regret utmost and it will remain a painful reminder in my life .It was just before Ramadan when finally we agreed to put the foundation of that empire in Hargeysa, a business empire under his leadership and my guidance. We were so happy so optimistic so looking forward that I was counting days. Alas just after Hajj he hinted he has light health problem. He was so strong physically and spiritually. He hid all his pain without whispering to the ears of those close to him. None of us knew the seriousness of his case. He endured all that pain all alone to save us from worry. I knew him for he never let us know anything that can worry us. Allah will be kind to my son as he was kind to us. That is what Allah promised and his promise is done before it is said.

On Sunday afternoon, I spent an hour with his body in mortuary reading Quran and offering Du’a. Each time I touched his body and see his face it was as though he was telling me " father don't worry I am in better hands, hands of Angels of heaven." Alhamdulilaa”

Our destiny is in Allah’s hands. I was not busy, not sick, not occupied, and no financial problem, yet I couldn’t move towards my beloved son, my only son. I regret very much and ask myself why and why yet I know I cannot take a step without Allah’s willing. It is hard to excuse myself from this gross irresponsibility. Astaqfurulla, Allah forgive me, I know my destiny is in your hands.

 I was so unlucky that I arrived a day late to see him alive but Allah gave me a way to communicate with him. I sensed he was listening and I promised to him to uphold his dreams Insha Allah. I promised to him more, that I will not share with you but ask you to help me by offering prayer so Allah help me  make it a reality.

Monday Duhur prayer I went with group of elders to pray in a Pakistani mosque in Grangetown where my home is located. After prayer I was surprised to hear the imam calling us to pray for the deceased. “Let us offer Du’as to the deceased young man Mohamed Ahmed Hassan Arwo" tears come to my eyes. He offered the best of Du’as and no one moved" then after Sunna prayer all came towards me giving me a hug and offering condolences. I was touched with their kindness and solidarity.

Tuesday morning it is washing ritual. The washing cermony was done in Aljalalia Mosque, in Grangetown, Cardiff. I washed him with my hands with the help of my close family and under the direction of Sheekh Omar, and Salama Funeral Services. I was delighted to be there to see his youthful body never changed glowing with freshness. Thank Allah he was so clean, so neat, so stunning, no trace of anything but shining body with nice smell. It was as though he was bathed before us. Deep in my heart I thanked Allah for this is a sign of Ehlu Janna. The body of the deceased shows signs of hell or heaven. My son’s body was that of whom Allah promised for better life in Heaven.

After washing session finished I looked at him not scaring but rather with exhilarating gesture and realized how his body is gleaming and how he grew a full dark beautiful beard. It looked trimmed and recently combed. A beard he never had but last days of his life.  The nice smell of his body was sensational. I hold his right hand and every part  was as  alive bending, not stiff but nearly moving. . I entangled my fingers with him and offered a special Du’a.


 Immediately family females members, led by his mother and sister came in. It was really testing time. Thank Allah our worry never materialized. I never saw and never heard a pack of women under this circumstances as strong as they were, withholding all their feelings and clearly stating Du’a one after another, no cry at all, no chest beating, no hair tearing, just offering Du’as. His mother Amal a strong Muslim with mountains of Iman and courage of lion, told him what he has to say at the grave, when Angels question him about his beliefs  and asked Allah to forgive him for all that he has done for her and for me. She recited Quran and Du’as. It was the Du’as of his Aunt Hayat Omar Carte, that touched my heart " Alhamdulilaa you are beautiful you are clean you are so sweet, you are Ehlu Janno, all signs are here Thank Allah” she continuously said without hesitation.

Then came the real test, the most touching. My daughter Najat kissed him and whispered into his ears “My brother you were all to me. You were my brother, my protector my guardian, you always advise me. I ask Allah to forgive you and to reward you Jannatul Fardaws for all the good deeds you have done and your love to us. You died young but accomplished great, Allah loves you” The courage of my daughter is beyond belief. I was shaking not with fear but with admiration. Thank Allah who gave me such strong family, thank Allah for giving me Amal as wife and Najat as a daughter.      
Then they kissed him and concluded with Du'as that we men couldn't offer. We were standing motionlessly, holding open hands towards heaven repeating Amen after them and in whispering voice.


We moved towards Al-Nur mosque for prayer. In front of the mosque I was met by my people of Cardiff. They are my people for they all love us as family. They are not just family but really good family, sharing with us the hard and the soft .My fellow Somalis and good number of other Muslims lined up to hug me and to offer condolences one by one. Masjidu-Nur of Butetown was crammed downstairs and upstairs. Women were given a special area where they were literally compressed like sardines in a box. After Duhur prayer Sh. Mohammed led Jinaza prayer. Tears filled my eyes but my heart was so cool and my mind told me my son is in the hands of his creator and he will be in better life than his short life here. I offered the Du’a with parental tone and in my special words, as the rest of the congregation did. Then again I was attacked with love and solidarity, they offered condolences tears in their eyes and some cannot hold their sorry and openly cried.


We took the last episode of Mohamed's life a trip to the Ely Cemetery. The ground was covered with my fellow Somalis and my fellow Muslims. Thank Allah for the number of attendants. Cars filled all open spaces and people covered all the grass area. They came from all over the world . From Holland, from Canada , from Saudi Arabia, from all UK of course large number came from our next door cities, Bristol and Newport. Many of them cried openly. I learned nothing is better than true friendship when I saw my son’s friends crying openly. I learned men cry not of fear but of love and sorry.
Mohammed with his grandfather Omer Arteh and his late grandmother Shukri Jirde. 

The grave itself is located at a corner and under a tree. A location anyone with choice would have chosen. Allah has chosen for my son MOHAMMED.  

May Allah bless his soul and make his grave a room from heaven. May Allah bestow his mercy and reward him Jannatul Fardaws for his loyalty to Allah and to his parents. I pray Allah to forgive me for all I haven't done for him. He gave me all his love while I did gave him a little of mine. Making his parents happy and satisfied was his utmost priority. It is painful to see ones child die before him but I am happy for all good deeds he have done in his short life. He never used his hand and tongue to harm any creature . To him they were tools to support, help and praise everyone. His heart was so huge he never found difficulty to entertain entire humanity with love and joy. I am proud to have Mohamed as my son. He departed us physically but he rests in my heart and mind for ever. He gave his entire life to serve us, never feel tired to execute our endless demands. He was a tower of help, mountain of support and river of love. Allah took my son for better life Insha Allah. His loyalty to Allah and to us will be rewarded with Allah's love.


Mohamed left in this world a son, named after me, Ahmed and a lovely wife who changed his life during this short period they were together. She made him happy, forward looking for better life. I noticed all these changes from the day they get married. My daughter-in-law Fathiya Sh Ibrahim I pray Allah to compensate your loss with better future and happy life in this world and forgiveness and Jannatul Fardaws hereafter.  

  Please do offer Du'a for him and for us.

MUWAADIIN MA OGTAHAY SABABTA UGU WEYN EE DIB U DHACA KU KEENTAY DOORASHOOYINKA WAKIILADA 10ka SANO



MUWAADIIN MA OGTAHAY SABABTA UGU WEYN EE DIB U DHACA KU KEENTAY DOORASHOOYINKA WAKIILADA 10ka SANO.

Axmed Xasan Carwo


IIN MA OGTAHAY SABABTA UGU WEYN EE DIB U DHACA KU KEENTAY DOORASHOOYINKA WAKIILADA EE XADDI DHAAFTAY

Waxa la yaab ah inaan marna laga hadal sababata ugu culus ee 10ka sano hortaagnayd doorashada Golaha Wakiilada kana dhigtay in 10 sano ay ku fadhiyaan halkay 5ta sano ahayd.
Waxa doorashadii koowaad lagu saleeyey cadaalad darro ayna codka muwaadinku u sinayn oo  laga maarmi waayey waxa se la raaciyey in nidaamkani ahaado mid ku meel gaadh ah oo qaladkaas loo badheedhay la saxo.

Waana halka ay ka timid fikirka tirakoobku, si loo ogaado tirade cod-bixiyaasha oo lagu sar jaro saami qaybsiga xildhibaanada. Taas macnaheedu waa in dib loogu noqdo tirade xildhibaanada ee gobalada kuna salaysan tirade codbixiyaasha kolka la diiwaangeliyo. Waa mid ilaalinaysa mabda’ah asalka ah ee dimuquraadiyada oo ah sinaanta codbixiyaasha. Waa qodob ayna cidini ka gudbi Karin oo ku qoran qodobada lama taabtaanka ah ee dal dimuquraadi ihi ku dhisan yahay.

Weli ma maqashay cid taabanaysa oo duraysa qodabkan aasaasiga ah. Maxa ugu wacan ee loo dul marayaa, maxa se aamusiiyey muwaadinka dulman. Kow, arrintani uma baahan in la siyaasadeeyo oo xisbiyadu waxay ka baqayaan inay arrintan xasaasiga ah midkood taabta kuwa kalian kaga baxaan. Waa mid u baahan in seddexda xisbi iyo dadweynahu dhammaan isla gartaan inay tahay mid dani ugu jirto dhammaan ummadeena.

Waa mid daaweyn doonta wada lahaanta goballada la wado dego ee tirada dadku ku badantay.  Waayo waxay heli doontaa tirada ay xaq u leedahay iyada oo bulshadu dhammaan wado leedahay ooy u tahay deegaan reer Soomaliland u siman yihiin. Waxa dhismaaya walaadnimada iyo adajirka bulshada iyadoo qof waliba ogaanaayo in codkiisu yahay mid la siman xubin kasta oo  codka bixisay.

Arrintan oo ahayd sababta keliya ee loo baajiyey doorashada ayaa ah haddana mid aan ilaa imika laga gun gaadhin. Waxa loo baahan yahay in xeerka doorashooyinka Wakiilada lagu daro qodob si cad u sheegaaya in saami qaybsiga xubnaha wakiilada lagu sar jari doono tirade codbixiyaasha ee gobal kasta, haddaan la suurtagelin Karin degmo kasta. Iyadoo la fulinaaya shuruudda sinaanta muwaadinka iyo xuquuqdiisa ee dastuurku ka dhigay lama tabtaan.

Arrintan oo faahfahsan waxaan ku soo qaadi doonaa maqaalo kale iyo aliba inaan dood ka galo, kuna baraarujiyo bulshada inayna muxaafid iyo mucaaridba u istaagno sinnaanta xuquuqda muwaadinka si aynu u helno bulsho isu calool fayow, is jecel wadajirta oo difaacda dastuurka iyo waxay heshiiska ku yihiin.

La jeclow walaalka waxad naftaada la jeceshay. Sinnanta codka muwaadinku waa u asal doorasho xaq ah oo dimuquraadi ah. Codka muwaadinka jooga Ceelaayo iyo kan jooga Ceel-la helay ha sinaadaan, ka jooga Berbera iyo Badhani ha sinaadaan, ka Hargeysa iyo kan Hadaaftimo ha sinnaadaan, ka Laascaanood jooga iyo kan Lawyacaddo joogaa ha sinnaadaan, ka jooga Boorame iyo kan jooga Buraan.

7 Things World Leaders Should Learn From Sheikh Zayed

7 Things World Leaders Should Learn From Sheikh Zayed

sheikhzayed
Thanks to the integrity and vision of Sheikh Zayed and his successors, in short of half a century, the UAE has taken the world by storm.
“If only [country] were like this,” is a phrase we hear a lot in the UAE. We think a few of the world’s “leaders” could learn a few things from this great man.


1. Vision


sheikhzayedvision
Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, also known as the “Father of the Nation”, ruled Abu Dhabi from 1966 to 2004 and was the first President of the United Arab Emirates. Sheikh Zayed took his love and respect for traditional values, the environment and transformation and applied it to the nation. He personally funded the first modern school. He had a vision for the UAE, uniting it as one and pushing international limits in all industries.


2. Put your country first


sheikhzayedcountryfirst
No one can deny that the UAE is where it is today because Sheikh Zayed put the UAE’s best interests first. Unlike many corrupt leaders, Sheikh Zayed’s initiatives were always for the nation. HRH (High Royal Highness) took a Bedouin desert land and transformed it into one of the biggest hubs of the world. Where there was no water, they put water. Where there was sand and beach, they created man-made islands. The impossible was made possible to put the UAE on the map.


3. Love and respect your people


sheikhzayedpeople
The UAE takes care of its own. Whether it’s housing, education or a laptop, the government makes sure its citizens are in good hands. Have you ever noticed the lack of Emirati residents around the world? They go home, that’s why. There’s almost zero brain drain in the UAE. There is so much love and respect towards citizens that expat residents feel the love, too. They even spread love and joy through initiatives like #MyDubai and #HappyDubai. When your country takes care of you, you take care of the country.


4. Foreign Relations


sheikhzayedforeingrelations
The world doesn’t mess with the UAE. They’ve managed to place themselves in a powerful position that is both respected, a little intimidating and yet liked. Sheikh Zayed made sure that the UAE stands up for its beliefs in the global forum, while maintaining positive diplomatic ties.


5. Tolerance


sheikhzayedtolerance
It’s not uncommon to find a woman in a short skirt and tank top walking next to another in a abaya and veil. Most often than not, they keep to themselves and don’t judge each other. To each his own. Sheikh Zayed and his successors have welcomed expats from around the world who have made the UAE their home. As long as they’re respecting the culture, everyone’s tolerant of the other.


6. Respect for Rules


sheikhzayedrespect
Every country has rules and everyone country has those who break them. What’s strange though, is that people are terrified to break the rules in the UAE. They don’t mess around: You’re either put in jail or deported. The best part is, people don’t want to be sent home (or go to jail), so they behave.


7. Humility


4002008153
The Emirati royal family is ballin’. We all know that. Between islands and cruiseline yachts, they’re rolling in riches – but you would never feel it. Their humility is contagious. Sheikh Zayed was known for his humble generosity, as are his successors.
Sheikh Mohamed Bin Rashid Maktoum of Dubai has been seen eating a casual lunch in DIFC, inviting those around him.
sheikhSheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi was spotted sitting next to a little girl on the curb who was lost until her father came to pick her up. He had offered to drive her home but she said she wasn’t allowed to talk to strangers, so he parked down right beside her on the curb and waited with her.


Sheikh Zayed is honored all over the UAE and there’s no doubt as to why. He was a phenomenal leader, may he rest in peace.
The world’s leaders should take note!
