Abstract: In the Banaadir region, saint stories contained within locally compiled hagiographies provide insights into some aspects of social history. In this article, the author draw upon these written sources to challenge some assumptions about the relationship between urban commercial life and Sufism in Somalia during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Gobolka banaadir waxaa laga helay qoraallo ku xusan taariikhda awliyada, iyo qayb ka mid ah taariikhda bulshada oo faahfaahsan. Haddaba qoraagu, isagoo ka shidaalqaadanaya qoraalkaas, wuxuu maqaalkaan ku soo bandhigayaa xiriirka ka dhexeeyey nolosha ganacsatada reer magaalka Soomaaliyeed iyo suufiyada, muddada u dhexaysay dhammaadka qarnigii 19aad iyo billowga qarnigii 20aad.
Nella regione benadirina, le storie di santi contenute nelle agiografie locali forniscono dettagli significativi su alcuni aspetti della storia sociale. In questo articolo, l'autore attinge da queste fonti scritte per scardinare alcuni assunti sulla relazione tra la vita commerciale urbana e il sufismo in Somalia durante la fine del XIX e l'inizio del XX secolo.
