The beginning of my learning journey

The beginning of my learning journey

My name is Abdirahman Osman. I was born in Mogadishu in August 1997 in the NBC neighborhood of Hodan district. At that time, the country was in a state of lawlessness, relentless conflicts, droughts. Before the beginning of my formal education, I started studying the Holy Quran at a Qor’anic Madarasa (Duksi). Moallim Mohamed was the first teacher who taught me the Quran. He had a moving sound when reciting the Qur’an.

After a while, I enrolled in an elementary school and I studied that school up until I was in 6th grade. Then, the fighting in Mogadishu intensified, and our family fled from the city to the “Ceelasha Biyaha” neighborhood in the outskirts of Mogadishu. There, I joined a UNICEF-built IDP school, but it was only limited to a primary school, and students were provided with free books and learning materials. I took grades 4, 5, 6, and 7th.

Then I returned to Mogadishu where the fighting had lessened. I joined Darul al-ulum School (2009 up to 2010) for the study of the Islamic religion and Prophetic Traditions. The school has now been transformed into a university (Daru al-ulum University).

I vividly remember Moallin Abdirahman Dhere and Abdirahman (Fiilow) who were great teachers at the school. The books (Kutub) I studied included (Naxwa: Part 1, 2, and 3), Fiqhi ( part 1, 2, and 3) Khulasah Nurul Yaqin (part 1, 2, and 3), and as well as the Qur’an and Arabic. It was a time that had a profound effect on my life.

Finally, the people who fled Mogadishu had returned after the fighting subsided and life returned to normal; markets and educational institutions were reopened. See next page of my life……………………….

Life requires struggle and the ability to overcome challenges.

Be patient with your life.
