Abstract: The article presents the Somali texts and English translations of five poems composed by Sayid Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, great Somali poet and leader of the Dervish movement against British colonial rule. In the first three poems the Sayid insults and advises the Somalis who make common cause with the British; in the fourth poem he praises God for the recovery of his sick wife and in the last one he gives a retrospective of his life's work.
Maqaalkan waxaa ku qoran 5 maanso, oo ku qoran af Soomaali iyo tarjumadooda af Ingiriiska ah, waxaa tiriyay Ina Cabdulle Xasan, gabyaagii weynaa oo madaxna u ahaa dhaqdhaqaaqii Daraawiishta. Seddaxda hore Sayidku wuxuu ku cambaaraynayaa Soomaalida aan ka dhiidhinin gumaysiga Ingiriiska. Maansada 4aad wuxuu Alle ka baryayaa in ooradiisa caafimaado, midka ugu dambeeya wuxuu ku saabsan yahay waxqabadkiisa.
L'articolo presenta i testi in somalo e le rispettive traduzioni in inglese di cinque poesie composte da Said Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, celebre poeta somalo e leader del movimento derviscio in lotta con l'occupazione coloniale britannica. Nei primi tre componimenti, il Said insulta e avvisa i somali che non si oppongono ai britannici; nel quarto componimento si rivolge a Dio per la guarigione della moglie malata e nell'ultimo fornisce una commovente retrospettiva dell'opera della sua vita.
