Waa Midabkee Xijaabkaygu?

Maalin maalmaha ka mid ah ayaa waxaan wax la akhrinayay gabadha aan eeddada u ahay ee Tima waxaanay i weydiisay, “Eeddo Hudda, sidee ayay ku dhacday in dadka buugaagta ku jira aysan ii eekayn anniga? ” Waan naxay. Waxaan raadiyay buug ay Muslimiin ku jiraan, laakiin way igu adkaatay inaan helo buug muujinaya gabdho yaryar oo xijaaban. Xitaa waxaa kaba sii adkayd inaan helo buugaag ay jillayaan Muslimiin. Halkii aan ka quusan lahaa, waxaan go’aansaday inaan anniga laftaydu abuuro buug. Buug sidan oo kale ahi ma jirin markii aan ahaa gabadh yar. Markaad ku arki weydo dad adiga kuu eg buugaagta ama filimada, way adag tahay inaad hesho cid aad ku dayato. Waxaan rabaa in carruurta Muslimiinta ahi ay naftooda ka dhex arkaan sheekooyinka ay akhriyaan. Waxaan rajeynayaa inuu buugani ku dhiirrigelin doono gabdhaha Muslimiinta ah inay ku faanaan cidda ay yihiin, jeclaadaan waxa ay xidhaan, si ay u noqdaan farshaxan yaqaano, qorayaal, barayaal, ciyaartooy, moodeelo faashiyoon, duuliyeyaal-wax kasta oo ay rabaan inay noqdaan oo ay guuleystaan! Dhammaan waxyaabahaasna ay sameeyaan iyagoo xiran xijaabkooda.
