Abstract: In this paper, the author presents two religious poems produced in Somalia in the early years of the 20th century and attempts to view them as embedded in the local history and cultural context of East Africa and the Horn. The author looks at the work and influence of the female poet and Muslim saint, Dada Masiti, who was based in Brava town on the Benadir coast of Somalia.
Nell'articolo, l'autrice presenta due poesie religiose composte in Somalia nei primi anni del XX secolo, tentando di inserirle nella storia locale e nel contesto culturale dell'Africa orientale e del Corno. L'autrice analizza anche il lavoro e l'influenza della poetessa e santa musulmana, Dada Masiti, che ha vissuto per parte della sua vita a Brava, sulla costa somala del Benadir.
Qoraalkan, haweenayda qortay waxay ku soo bandhigaysaa laba maanso diineed oo lagu curisay Soomaaliya bilowga qarnigii 20aad, iyadoo isku dayeyso in ay ku biiriso taariikhda maxalliga iyo dhaqanka Geeska Bariga Afrika. Haweenayda qoraaga ahi waxay sidoo kale falanqeynaysaa hawsha ay qabatay Daada Maasiti, oo ahayd haweenay awliyad gabyaaga ah oo ku nooleed Baraawe, iyo saameynta ay ku yeelatay degaannada Xeebta Banaadirtii hore ee Soomaaliya.
