Learn to Channel Your Relaxation
Breathing exercises can be helpful to reduce stress and anxiety and help you to relax at bedtime. The following seven breathing exercises can all be done easily on your own to help encourage your body and mind to relax and make sleep easier.1
Abdominal breathing refers to deep breathing into the abdomen rather than shallow breathing in the chest. The following steps will make sure that you are breathing from your diaphragm.
1. Lie down with your legs straight and slightly apart. Point your toes outward, put your arms at your side gently, make sure your palms are facing up, and close your eyes.
2. Place one hand on your stomach and the other on your chest.
3. Notice which hand rises the most as you inhale.
4. If the hand on your chest rises the most as you inhale, focus on filling your stomach (bottom of your lungs) full of air before you reach the top. The easy way to do this is to try and force your abdomen to rise as you breathe. Over time, this gets easier.
As you breathe, be sure to inhale through your nose and then exhale through your mouth. Keep your face relaxed as you do this. Breathe in and out while counting to make sure that you are breathing slowly. Relax and focus on the sound of your breath.
Continue breathing like this for a period of time such as 5 or 10 minutes. Practice this type of breathing regularly, such as once a day.
Once you’ve become better at engaging in deep abdominal breathing, practice it when you find yourself becoming anxious or tense.
This type of breathing is useful in that it helps to slow down the various functions in your body that can keep you tense and anxious.1 Allowing yourself to deep breathe will slow your heart rate and make it easier to drift off to sleep.2
Repeating a Mantra
Once you have mastered the art of abdominal breathing, you can add in a mantra that helps you to focus on the relaxation aspect of your breath. Follow the steps below to add in a mantra while you breathe.
1. Lie down and get comfortable or sit in a relaxing position.
2. As you breathe deeply through to your abdomen, say a phrase to yourself in your head such as “Inhale relaxation.”
3. Then, as you breathe out and release the air from your abdomen, say “Exhale tension.”
Be sure to pause before you exhale and before you inhale. As you exhale, become aware of any tension in your body and let it go.
You can even use your imagination to picture your body accepting relaxation and letting go of tension. Picture these experiences as visual events such as air moving in and out of your body.
Continue doing this for 5 to 10 minutes until you start to feel sleepy.3
4-7-8 Breathing Routine
The 4-7-8 breathing exercise is another way to relax so that you can fall asleep.2 Follow the steps below to practice this type of breathing.
1. Sit with your back straight.
2. Place the tip of your tongue behind your upper front teeth and keep it there.
3. Exhale through your mouth and make a “whooshing” sound.
4. Close your mouth and inhale in through your nose to a count of four.
5. Hold this breath and count to seven.
6. Then, exhale out through your mouth while making the same “whoosh” sound and count to eight.
9. If you complete this cycle, you have done one breath. Now go back and do this again three more times so that you have completed the cycle for four breaths in total.
It’s important to note that when you breathe like this, you should inhale quietly but exhale while making a nose. Keep your tongue in the same spot throughout the whole exercise. Make sure that you maintain the ratio of time for inhale/holding/exhale as this is what is most important.
If you want to do everything faster the first few times you do this (if you find holding your breath for this long is difficult), feel free to modify the time and work your way up as you get accustomed to the exercise.
Practice breathing like this twice a day (again, only do four breaths at a time). Do this consistently for one month. As you grow more confident you can extend to eight breaths.
Now, when you find yourself unable to sleep, practice your 4-7-8 breaths4
Have you heard of the body scan technique to help you relax and fall asleep? This technique involves scanning your body for signs of tension so that you can overcome these and fall asleep.3 Follow the steps below to practice this technique.
1. Lie down in bed and focus on relaxing as you exhale.
2. Feel the bed underneath you and how it is supporting you as you continue to exhale and relax.
3. Visualize each part of your body, starting at your head and moving through your whole body to look for spots that feel tense. As you move through your body, exhale and focus on relaxing tense muscles.
4. After you’ve finished looking for tension throughout your body, focus on your exhales. As you exhale, repeat a mantra to yourself that helps to induce sleep such as simply the word “sleep” or another cue that helps you to start to drift off.
Follow this technique and you should find both your mind and body start to relax. Before you know it, you will be drifting off to sleep!5
Counting While Breathing
Did you know that counting can help you to fall asleep? Follow the advice below to help you count your way to a better night’s sleep.2
1. Lie down in bed, focus on exhaling your breath, and try your best to relax.
2. Feel the bed supporting you underneath as you exhale and relax.
3. Count from one to 10 and then backward from 10 to one, but pair the counts with your exhales.
4. Keep repeating this sequence until you fall asleep.
There are many variations on this counting breaths theme. For example, you could count backward from 99 to help you fall asleep. See what works best for you and practice it until you feel sleepy.6
Focusing on the rhythm of your breathing is another way to help you fall asleep.3 The following steps allow you to take advantage of this method of becoming relaxed at bedtime.
1. Lie down in bed and start to focus on the relaxation that you feel as you exhale your breath.
2. Feel your bed supporting you as you step down into a relaxed state while you exhale.
3. As you become more relaxed, focus your exhales and notice how you feel when you do them. Examples of sensations might include sinking into the bed, a feeling of things slowing down, a feeling of heaviness, or even sometimes feeling like you have more patience.
4. As you become relaxed, start to imagine that your breath is made up of colors. Watch as you breathe in and out and see those colors matching your breath. Don’t force anything or try to put your own box around it—just let yourself slip into the experience and see what comes up in your mind.
5. Focus only on your breath until you fall asleep.
It may sound simple, but imagery is a powerful way to relax and should always be considered helpful when you are engaging in breathing exercises to help yourself slow down before bed.7
Visualization to Release Energy
When trying to fall asleep, it is helpful if you can practice exercises that help to relax both your mind and your body. This is a way to expel energy and prepare for sleep. Building upon the breathing imagery we already discussed, you can add in more visualization to help you relax.4 To practice this technique, follow the steps below.
1. Imagine that the worry, stress, or anxiety inside of you is a colored gas and is filling every corner of your body.
2. Imagine that as you exhale, this colored gas is being expelled from every part of your body and as it leaves, you start to relax. Imagine it moving from your lower body up through your torso and gathering in a ball ready to be expelled.
3. Imagine now that the same energy is being pulled from your head down into the ball of energy. Feel that calm has entered all areas where that energy has left.
4. Now, imagine that the ball of energy contains all of your negative energy like your anxiety and fear. Visualize it shooting out of the top of your head and up into the atmosphere like a shooting star.
5. Now, notice how you feel relaxed, calm, and ready to sleep.
The next time you find it hard to fall asleep, try practicing one of the above seven breathing exercises for better sleep. If you still struggle, considering visiting your doctor to see if there is an underlying cause of your insomnia or poor sleep.

Xukuumadda Federaalka Itoobiya ayaa Markii ugu horreysay abid lagu soo daray gabar Soomaali ah, taasoo loo magacaabay Wasiirka Arrimaha Haweenka, Dhalinyarada iyo Carruurta.
Ra’iisul Wasaaraha Itoobiya Abiy Axmed ayaa xilkaas taariikhiga ah u magacaabay Maareeyaha guud ee warbaahinta Nabad TV, Filsan Cabdullaahi Axmed.
Filsan ayaa in muddo ahba ahayd qof u dooda xuquuqda haweenka iyo Carruurta, waxayna kasoo jeeddaa Deegaanka Soomaalida Itoobiya.
Intii ay ku guda jirtay howlaha la xiriira u doodista xuquuqda dumarka, waxay aasaastay telefishin sidoo kale u ol’oleeya xasiloonida oo ay ku magacowday Nabad TV.
Iyadoo dareenkeeda kala hadleysay BBC-da ayey shegetay in tallaabadan uu qaaday Dr Abiy Axmed ay tahay horumar weyn oo la gaaray.
“Waa guul Soomaalida usoo hooyatay, in gabar Soomaaliyeed wasiir loo magacaabo, tan labaad, muddooyinkii ugu dambeeyayba waxaan aad uga hawgalay Telefishenka Nabad TV, oo inbadan waxaan u istaagay xuquuqda haweenka deegaanka”, ayay tiri Filsan oo wareysi gaar ah siisay BBC-da.
Filsan ayaa sheegtay in sababta ay markii horeba ugu doodeysay Arrimaha Haweenka ay ahayd maadaama aysan Dumarka qeyb ka ahayn siyaasadda.
“Si gaar ah waxaan ugu istaagay haweenka deegaanka, oo aan ka dhex muuqanin xisbiga cusub ee loo dhisay deegaanka Soomaalida, sidoo kalena waxaan ol’ole ugu jiray sidii loo hagaajin lahaa nolosha carruurta”.
Waxay muujisay inay diyaar u tahay sidii ay kaalinta cusub ee la siiyay uga soo bixi lahayd.
“Waxaan rajeynayaa inaan guulo fiican kasoo hoyiyo xilkan la ii magacaabay ee Wasiirka Haweneka, Dhalinyarada iyo Carruurta, haddii Alle Idmo”, ayey tiri.
Go’aanka gabadhan Soomaalida ah loogu daray Golaha Wasiirrada ee Dowladda Federaalka Itoobiya ayaa qeyb ka ah isbadallada waaweyn ee uu la yimid Ra’iisul Wasaare Abiy Axmed, tan iyo markii uu xilka qabtay sanadkii 2018-kii.
Mr Abiy ayaa hormuud u noqday isbaddal siyaasadeed oo ka curtay Itoobiya, kaasoo saameyn aad u weyn yeeshay.
Tallaabooyinkii ugu waaweynaa ee uu qaaday waxaa ka mid ahaa inuu sii daayay maxaabiistii arrimaha siyaasadda u xirneyd iyo inuu xor ka dhigay warbaahinta.
Aasaaskii Telefishinka Nabad TV
Filsan Cabdullaahi waxaa u suurtagashay inay dalka Itoobiya ka hirgaliso Telefishinkii ugu horreeyay ee madax banannaa oo laga hirgaliyay deegaanka Soomaalida.
Telefishiinka Nabad oo baahintiisa ugu horreeya Af-soomaali ku billaabay wuxuu tabiyaa warar iyo barnaamijyo madadaalo ah, ujeeddadiisa ugu weyna ay tahay inuu shacabka isku soo dhaweeyo.
Howlaha ugu waaweyn ee uu qaban jiray Telefishinkeeda waxaa ka mid ahaa in loo ol’oleeyo nabadda iyo in tooshka lagu ifiyo arrimaha lidka ku ah xasiloonida.
Wareysi ay goor sii horreysay siisay BBC-da ayey ku sharraxday ujeeddada ay u aasaastay Nabad Tv.
“Waxyaabaha igu kallifay inaan tallaabadan qaado waxaa ka mid ah deegaankeenna Soomaalida wixii ka dhacay, oo loo wada joogay, sababtoo ah ma jirin meel ay bani’aadanka xorriyad uga hadlaan, gaar ahaan dumarkana aad bay ugu dhibaateysnaayeen oo aysan heysanin meel ay wixii ay qabeen ku sheegan karaan. Marka muhiim bay ahayd inaan TV noocaas ah oo shaqadaas qabta hirgaliyo”, ayey tiri.
Dowlad deegaanka Soomaalida Itoobiya ayaa sidoo kale muddooyinkii dambe laga hirgaliyay isbadallo badan oo furfurnaan ah, wixii ka dambeeyay markii maamulka lagu wareejiyay xukuumadda uu madaxweynaha ka yahay Mustafe Cumar.
‘Doorka Soomaalida ay ku leedahay siyaasadda dalka Itoobiya’
Filsan waxay aaminsan tahay in Soomaalida dalka Itoobiya doorka ay siyaasadda dalka ku leeyihiin inuu aad u yar yahay.
Waxay horay BBC-da ugu sheegtay iney muwaaddiniinta deegaanka Soomaalida ay takoor kala kulmaan dalka.
“Dad badan oo ku nool deegaanka Soomaalida intooda badan ma aaminsana iney Itoobiyaan yihiin, si marka arrimahaasi wax looga baddalo waa iney dowladda laamaheeda kala duwan ay qaadaan tallaabbooyin wax ku ool ah” ayey tiri.
“Deegaanka Soomaalida wuxuu leeyahay aqoonyahanno deegaanka Soomaalida iyo dalka intiisa kalaba anfacaya. Marka waa in la helaa nidaam dadkaasi u suuragelinaya ka qayb gal ballaadhan u horseedi kara”. ayey tiri Filsan Cabdullaahi Axmed.
Filsan Cabdullaahi Axmed waxay ku dhalatay magaalada Jigjiga oo ay waalliddiinteeda ku noolaayeen, waxayna ku soo barbaartay magaalada Addis Ababa, waxbarashadeeda jaamacadeedna waxay ku qaadatay dalka Ingiriiska.
Wax qarsoon ma aha dhibaatada dawlada federalka ahi kawado gudaha Somaliland, oo ay ku doonayso iney ku mijo xaabiso nabada iyo wada noolaansha, sida aan xogogaal u nahay siyaasiin badan oo bulshada caalamka ka tirsani way la socdaan,sida ay wax u socdaan balse waxaa aad moodaa in dhinaca Somaliland ay ka jirto il duuf, iyo dabagal,baadhitaan lagula soconayo falalka dawlada farmaajo ee ku aadan khalkhal gelinta degenaashaha iyo jiritaanka Somaliland sidaa darteed waxaa la gudboon dawlada Somaliland in ay isha ku hayso ficilada lagu khadburayo nabada,walaalnimada dadka reer Somaliland ee layskaga horkeenayo,arintaa waa in dawlada Somaliland ka foojignaataa si dhawno ula socotaa macluumaadkana la wadaagtaa dawladaha Somaliland la saaxiibka ah,golaha amaanka UN, iyo UN ta laftigeeda,ururka AU, Mareykanka, UK iyo Midgowga yurub.
Dhaqaalaha lagu Caawiyo Somaliya waxaa ay uga faa’iideysataa mijo xaabinta iyo qalaalasaha Somaliland iyo qaar ka mida Dawlad goboleed yada federalka Somaliya.
Warka uu Madaxweynaha Dawlad goboleedka Somaliya ee Puntland mudane Siciid Cabdilahi Deni uu ku bixiyey wareysiga uu siiyey BBC da eek u saabsan in dawlada federalka ahi ku hawlan tahay arimo nabada Qatar ku ah oo ay ka wado gudaha Somaliland waa war ay siweyn wax uga jiraan oo horeba loo ogaa balse khatarteedu waa mid imika soo gaadhey heer ka halis badan meeshii hore.
Dawlada Somaliland waxaa aan kula talinayaa in ay dacwad ka dhana dawlada federalka ah ee Somaliya gaar ahaan Xukuumada uu hogaamiyo farmaajo u gudbiso Golaha Amaanka ee qaramada midoobey,masuuliyada dagaalo ka dhaca Somaliland gudaheeda in uu masuuliyadeed aaney cidi la wadaagin Madaxweynaha Somaliya iyo xukuumadiisa.

Marka la eego duruufaha ku xeeran Somaliya waxaa bulshada calamka la gudboon in ay dib u eegto aragtida wada hadalada Somaliya iyo Somaliland,si bulshada caalamku uga digtoonaato khalad weyn oo khasaare ku keena dadaalka caalamka ee arimaha Somaliya
Waa hadii bulshada caalamku rabto in somaliya guud ahaan guuleysato oo natiijo wax ku ool ahi ka soo baxdo dadaalkooda ku aadan Somaliya guud ahaan arimahani waxay u baahan yahiin wax ka bedel jadwalka ama road map ka Somaliya oo hada ku saleysneyn qorshe cilmiyeesan oo xalili kara dhibaatooyinka ka jira Somaliya ee aan cidna caad ka saareyn.
Somaliland laga soo bilaabo 18 May 1991 waxay mideysay dadkeedii oo ay u sameysay maamul iyo kala dambeyn waxaaney ku guuleysatey in ay xaliso dhibaatooyinkii uu ka tegey burburkii iyo xukunkii dawladii Somaliya iyada oo shirar dabeed(beesha caalamku) u qabatey iyo cid taageertey toona aaney jirin Alle mooyee.
Somaliland Somaliya waxaa ka dhexey midow laba dal oo 1 July 1960 way midobeen, taas macnaheedu waxaa uu yahay Somaliland si rabitaankeeda ah ayey ugu biirtey Somaliya rabitaankeedana way kaga baxdey sidaa darteed caalamka waxaa la gudboon in markasta oo somaliya iyo Somaliland wax layska weydiinayo maskaxda lagu hayaa kala duwaanshaha dal kala go’ay iyo laba dal oo kala baxay meesha laga bilaabayaa waa taa, ee ma aha somaliya oo ah hal dal ee waa somaliya oo ahayd laba gobol oo midoobey .
Somaliya iyo Somaliland Khilaaf baa ka dhexeeya ku saabsan masiiro umadeed sidaa darteed
Bulshada Caalamka waxaa la gudboon in hadii la rabo in Somaliland iyo Somaliya la dhexgalo in marka hore mid walba si gaara loola dhaqmo taasi macneheedu wuxuu yahay:
- Somaliya waxa caalamku u dhisay dawlad federalka ah ee Somaliya dawladaasi waxay quseysaa Somaliya oo qudha waayo Somaliland qayb kamey ahayd talona kumey lahayn,sidaa darteed cid ku qasbi karta ma jirto in ay u hogaansanto ama ay qab ka noqoto wax aaney waxba kala socon kana saxeexin.
- Dawladii federalka ahaa ee Somaliya loo sameeyey weli ma aha mid ka Talisa oo maamulsha xitaa intii wada dhisatey oo lama odhan karo waa mid guuleysatey balse waa mid gurguurad ku jirta.
- Dalada federalka ah ee Somaliya loo dhisay ma aha mid gaadhey oo ku dhasan codka dadka Somaliyeed ee ku salaysan hal qof iyo hal cod ee waa mid farasmo ama xal lagu dhisay.
- Waxaa jirta in ay umuuqato in xitaa dhaqaalaha caalamku ku caawiyo lamariyo nidaamka musuqa iyo ku fulin halo lagu kharbudo xasiloonida Somaliland ama gobolada kale ee federalka ka mida.
Hadaba hada waxaa la joogaa wakhtigii Somaliland caalamku taageeri lahaa hadii caalamka hogaamiyashiisa iyo bulshada caalamkaba dhab ka tahay daacadna ka yihiin qadiyada Somaliya iyo Somaliland.
Somaliland waxaa loo baahan yahay:
- In mucaawimada beesha Caalamku wixii ay ku taageryso toos u soo mariso Xukumada Somaliland waayo caawimada ma aha aar goosi siyaasadeed
- In Somaliland dadkeeda oo in ka badan 99% maanta aaminsan yihiin in ay horumar gaadheen intii ay somaliya ka maqnaayeen la dhowro xoriyadooda aas aasiga ee baaqyada caalamiga ah ee xoriyada siyaasada,dhaqaalaha iyo bulshada.
- In dawladaha sheega inay xuquuqda adamiga ilaaliyaan iyo ururada xuquuqda adamiga meel wariyaan in la soo saaro lana maxkamadeeyo dadkii xasuuqii Somaliland masuulka ka ahaa oo aad moodo in la aan waxbaba layska waydiineynin arintaa hadii wax laga qaban waayo waxay noqoneysaa arin ku suntanan doonta tacadiyada ay dawaneyso UN.
- Waxaa lagama maarmaan ah in haydaha bixiya abaal gudka nabada ay dib u eegaan sababta odayaashii iyo Siyaasiintii dhidbey nabada Somaliland looga qadiyey Abaal gudyada Caalamiga ah ee la siiyo dadka wax u qabta dadkooda iyo caalamkaba haydahaasina waxay yeelandoonaan dhaliishooda cadaalad daro.
- Somaliland waxay wada hadal la gashay Somaliya qobadii lagu heshiiyey Somaliya way ka muquuratey bulshada caalamku waxba kama odhan Somaliya caadisna laguma saarin.
Ugu dambeyn dalalka iyo bulshada caalamka ee daneenaya arimaha Somaliya iyo Somaliland waxaa la gudboon inay indhahooda u furan si balaadhan oo aaney dhinac qudha uun waxba ka eegin balse u fiirsadaan ficiladooda iyo waxtarkooda meesha ay marinayaan.
Waxaa aan qabaa in aan weli lagaadhin wakhtigii la odhan lahaa Somaliya iyo Somaliland baa wada hadlaya balse waxaa la joogaa wakhtigii labadaba laga taageeri lahaa hanaanka geedi u socodka dhismaha laba qaran oo si isku mida loogu taageero af iyo aduunba iyaga oo sidaa u kala gooniya markey sidaa ku soo dhismaana ee Somaliya Cagaheeda isku taagto afti laga qaado dawlad ay soo dhisato ka dib la qaban qaabiyo wada hadalka oo bisil.
Hadase waxaa bulshada caalamka la gudboon iney ka taxatirto khalad weyn oo ah qasab iskugu geyn laba dal oo markii horaba iyagu ikhtiyaarkooda isku raacay arintaasi hadii bulshada caalamku isku daydo wixii ka dhasha iyaga ayaa masuul ka noqondoona.
Dadka Somaliland waxay tirsanayaan dhibaatooyin badan oo ka soo gaadhey dalal badan oo caalamka ka mida oo lagu xasuuqay dhaqaalihii iyo hubkii ay Somaliya siinjireen waxaana kow ka ah dalka Mareykanka oo ku andacooda in uu dhiso dimoqraadiyada,waa marag madoonto in hubkii iyo dhaqaalihii dadka mareykanka ee uu ku caawinayey dawladii Somaliya ee Siyaad Bare lagu xasuuqay in kabadan 0.8Milyan oo qof oo Somalilander ah, hadaba dawlada mareykanku muxuu yahay nacaybka ay u qabto dadka reer Somaliland oo mar walba dhinaca xun uga eegto arimahooda.
Dadka Somaliland maha kuwo aan la socon cadawgooda iyo Saaxiibkooda,waana kuwo ogsoon warn aka haya waxaa hareerahooda ka dhacaya,balse waxaa la gudboon dalal badan oo caalamka ka mida iyo jaarka Somalilandba iney masxada ku hayaan in aaney Somaliland gobanimadeeda ahayn mid dhayal ah oo meel cidla ah iska taagan siu fududna lagu wiiqi karo balse waa arin ka gundheer sida aad moodeysaan taariikhda ayaana warindoonta mustaqbalka ifaya ee Qaranimada Somaliland
Donald Trump has refused to wear a face mask once again during a tour in Michigan – despite an official warning he could be banned from visiting the state if he did so.© Getty One official had warned Mr Trump could be banned from visiting Michigan in future if he did not comply with the law
The president was visiting a factory belonging to the Ford Motor Company, which has shifted its focus to manufacturing ventilators and personal protective equipment.© Reuters Donald Trump did pose with a transparent visor, but did not wear a mask
Mr Trump’s defiance came despite Ford’s own policy stating that all visitors must wear a face mask at its sites.
Surrounded by executives wearing masks, he told reporters: “I had one on before. I wore one in the back area. I didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it.”
At one point, he took out a White House-branded mask from his pocket, and said he had worn it elsewhere on the tour while out of public view.
The 73-year-old has consistently disregarded guidance from the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, urging Americans to wear masks in close company to try and curb the spread of coronavirus.
Although the company “encouraged President Trump to wear a mask when he arrived” at the plant in Ypsilanti, executive chairman Bill Ford said: “It’s up to him.”
Prior to the president’s visit, Michigan’s attorney general Dana Nessel had warned that wearing a face mask was the law in the state – and if Mr Trump failed to do so, he would be told not to return to enclosed facilities there.REPLAY VIDEO
Trump breaks Michigan law requiring masks
Ms Nessel told CNN: “If we know that he’s coming to our state and we know he’s not going to follow the law, I think we’re going to have to take action against any company or facility that allows him inside those facilities and puts our workers at risk.
“We just simply can’t afford it here in our state.”
At least two people who work in the White House and had been physically close to Mr Trump have recently been diagnosed with COVID-19.
However, the president is tested daily, and said on Thursday that he had tested negative.
Speaking to reporters during the tour of the car plant, the president also suggested that he will start staging campaign rallies at outdoor sites.
With little more than five months left until the presidential election, Mr Trump is behind his Democratic rival Joe Biden in national polls – as well as some battleground states such as Michigan, which he won four years ago.
An official working for Mr Trump’s campaign said outdoor rallies could take place as early as the middle of June, adding: “It’s clear he’s chomping at the bit to resume the rallies.”
But another adviser to the president suggested this timetable might be too optimistic, meaning such events might have to wait until after the 4 July holiday.
The president has been warned that the 2020 race is going to be much tougher than his surprise victory in 2016.
More than 94,000 people have died with coronavirus in the US, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.
The country also has over 1.5 million confirmed cases, with the president claiming he views this as a “badge of honour” and a tribute to the volumes of testing taking place.Click to expand00:1901:36 HQ ‘I’m taking it and I’m still here’
On Monday, Mr Trump revealed he is taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against coronavirus, despite it being unproven as an effective COVID-19 treatment.

The former British Protectorate in the Horn of Africa, officially known as the Republic of Somaliland is a nation, arguably the most democratic state in East Africa, with many success stories that hardly imaginable to happen in the continent, yet the world is insisting NOT to recognize and turned a blind eye. Somaliland has managed to build peace in the flaming and volatile region, the Horn of Africa; right next to Somalia which tops the list of the failed states, in the world. It has established a fully functional and democratic government with NO international assistance, conducted series of elections which was confirmed as free and fair by the international community, in a continent where people barely vote for their presidents and maintained the Montevideo criteria of statehood including; defined territory which is built upon the Anglo-Italian, Anglo-French and Anglo-Ethiopian treaties, having a functioning and forceful government which is democratically elected by the people, a permanent population of 5 million and the capacity to enter into relations with other states.
This former British Protectorate was the 12th African nation to become independent resulted from a Royal Proclamation of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This means Somaliland became independent way before 42 African countries which, now, are sitting in the African Union (AU) and have the right to decide the fate of whether Somaliland becomes recognized by the AU or not. Soon after the independence, 34 members of the UN, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, recognized Somaliland as an independent and as a sovereign country. Unfortunately, that sovereignty didn’t last long and within 5 days the country, prematurely, got into an unrewarding union with their neighboring Somalia to make the Somali Republic. This unification was a preamble to the Greater Somalia ambition inspired by the Somali people in the region. That Union was never legal and formal. On the contrary, it was a turbulent and unsatisfactory, marriage
After 31 years of difficulties, injustice, inequalities, and prejudice, that union ended horribly with 11 years of War which claimed the lives of a quarter of a million of the Somaliland people after civilians were shelled and cities were bombed and leveled it to the ground by the military aircraft of their government.
In 1991, Somalilanders defeated and destroyed the military deployed to their land by the military government, declaring their withdrawal from the failed union they have been part of, for more than 3 decades. This is where the miraculous and phenomenal African success story starts, and the most democratic country in east Africa begins its extraordinary journey, but before that let us have a glance at the history and some interesting incidents back in time.
The pre-colonial era of the Somali inhabited territory in the Horn of Africa
The Horn of Africa, because of its strategic location which is conducive to trading, has given the Somalis to involve in trade businesses and interact with different cultures. They used to export animal products, rare gums, ostrich feathers, and other products. Having access to both the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean, the Horn Africa became a trade hub and coiling station to the ships going to India. Thus, European interests began to crop up in the region, and in the 1880s The British, French, and Italians competed for the Somali territory, which later agreed to share. In 1887 Britain declared Somaliland a protectorate, leading to an Anglo-French agreement to define borders between the countries of new colonies of British Somaliland and French Somaliland (current Djibouti). While Italy found its fair share to colonize Somalia as La Somalia Italiana. The British also colonized Kenya and right before the disbanding of the British colony in the region, they granted the Somali inhabited North Eastern Province administration to Kenya, as well as the Hawd and Reserve Area or Ogaden region to be part of Ethiopia. From there on, Somalis were divided into 5 administrative borders.
The colonial dissolution and the outcome of the greater Somalia Dream
The concept of Greater Somalia protrudes back to the beginning of the 20th century, and the idea was to unite all Somali speaking nations, comprising regions in which ethnic Somalis live or historically inhabited, encompassing not only Somaliland, Somalia, and Djibouti, but also the North Eastern Province of Kenya and current Somali state of Ethiopia included. That’s why the blue light flag which was originally comprehended and served as an ethnic flag, has a five-pointed star at the center, each point representing an area where the Somali ethnic groups have resided.
Shortly, after Somaliland got independence from Britain, they tried to practice what they had been preaching for decades and voluntarily united with their counterpart, La Somalia Italiana which got independence from Italy only four days after Somaliland. Although the two entities united as a single nation, British Somaliland and the Italian Somalia were, from an institutional perspective, two separate countries. Italy and the United Kingdom had left the two with separate administrative, legal, and education systems in which affairs were conducted according to different procedures and in different languages. Police, taxes, and the exchange rates of their respective currencies also differed.
At first, the newly formed parliament of the two united countries promptly created a new Act of Union but it was widely rejected in the State of Somaliland. This was exactly where the confusion started but it was not limited to that. Somalia turned the tables and took advantage of their kind-hearted brothers. A huge injustice and disparities in the power-sharing followed where Mogadishu benefited all state resources. As a result of this, in December 1961, a group of Somaliland junior Officers attempted a coup d’état intended to restore the independence of the Republic of Somaliland, however, it was unsuccessful
That dream of a greater Somalia died after Djibouti received independence from France and refused to join the union, preferring to stand separate and establish their own different country. Having said that, the NFD and the Hawd & Reserve area remained to be parts of Kenya and Ethiopia, respectively. Furthermore, the union between the other two wasn’t hale and hearty.
That dissatisfaction of the Somalilanders with the Act of Union and power-sharing was a subject that the successive civilian governments ignored and the situation was completely exacerbated when the despotic Siad Barre came to power in a coup following the assassination of President Sharmake of the Somali Republic. Barre not only politically marginalized Somaliland, but economically deprived their cities, and later on, started killing anyone from these part of the country who speaks against injustice. That worsened situation derived a group of students, business people, former civil servants, and former politicians to found the Somali National Movement (SNM) which then turned to be an armed liberation front. According to Human Rights Watch, with the formation of the SNM, Somaliland people have seen the worst atrocities. Serious and series of grave human rights violations, including extra-judicial executions of unarmed civilians, detentions without trial, unfair trials, torture, rape, looting, and extortion, have been a prominent feature of life in the towns and countryside in Somaliland.
During the ongoing conflict between the forces of the SNM and the Somali Army, the Somali government’s genocidal campaign against the people of Somaliland took place between May 1988 and March 1989, where the government’s military aircrafts maneuvered by South African and Rhodesian mercenaries were bombing schools, hospitals and residential areas of Somaliland cities and killed more than 200,000 civilians indiscriminately.
The rebirth of British Somaliland
In 1991, the Siad Barre regime was defeated by SNM forces. On the 18th of May, at a conference held in Burao; the second-largest city in Somaliland, in which traditional leaders of all clans that dwell the country attended, Somaliland declared its independence and withdrawal from its union with the Somali Republic.
A new journey began, and a series of reconciliation and peacebuilding conferences has been conducted. The peace that Somaliland has been enjoying for almost 30 years was home-grown and completely free from any external influence and intervention. It was a traditional and indigenous conflict resolution method, which also lead to the implementation of the disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration processes. However, the country remained peaceful for thirty years and was free from acts of terrorism, piracy, and any other form of social and political instabilities
Although Somaliland is not internationally recognized, the country enjoys symbolic trappings of statehood: it has a national flag, a currency, a national anthem, organized and powerful army with a mandate to defend the independence and territorial integrity of Somaliland, a passport that’s accepted by several countries including the UK, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Kenya, UAE, etc, and demarcated borders which are based on the colonial lines as per the Cairo Declaration on African borders in 1964.
Over the years, Somaliland, lacking any international assistance, has conducted a series of democratic free and fair elections where five different presidents succeeded the office. Sometimes an opposition leader won over an incumbent president and the transition of power was completely peaceful. Not only they have managed to hold presidential elections, but also a national referendum before that as well as parliamentary and local council elections were conducted. These elections were termed as free and fair by international observers. Moreover, Somaliland was the world’s first country to use iris recognition to register its voters.
Somaliland is also an example of freedom of press and expression. According to the last report of Freedom House, a US-funded organization based in the US, Somaliland is the most freedom country in the Horn of Africa, superior and way better than Ethiopia, Djibouti, Eritrea, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Tanzania, and many other African countries.
Somaliland’s quest for recognition
The pursuit of Somaliland for recognition remained strong for many years, despite being overlooked by the International community. “Somaliland will remain independent even if we don’t get our rightful recognition for the coming 100 years ‘’ the former president H.E Ahmed Silanyo echoed at an occasion of 18th May commemoration, and that’s what every Somalilander of every age is going to tell to other parts of the world. The people are not hopeless, and despite their aspiration to be part of the International community, they also believe they can continue living and rising without recognition comparing their living standard with many countries which enjoy recognition from the outside world.
Also, an AU fact-finding mission visited Somaliland on the 30th of April 2005 and stayed the country for four days. They made a thorough assessment of the Somaliland situation and remarked in their report that Somaliland’s search for recognition is historically unique and self-justified, as such they recommended the AU to find a special method of dealing with this outstanding case.
As per the AU fact-finding report, there was an evident conviction and emotion among the Somalilanders that their “country” has all the attributes of an independent sovereign State, which they say the international community should objectively consider. Not only Somaliland satisfied the Montevideo criteria of statehood, but also achieved what most of the African and Arab countries failed to achieve.
In conclusion, as stated by the AU fact-finding mission to Somaliland, The lack of recognition ties the hands of the authorities and people of Somaliland as they cannot effectively and sustainably transact with the outside to pursue the reconstruction and development goals. The will of the people has to be respected and their accomplishment deserves to be rewarded, but it is never too late. Somaliland’s recognition could be a potential antidote to the problems of the Horn of Africa, and to that of their neighboring Somalia, in particular.

Waxaa aynu ku eegaynaa maqaalkan bal iney Somaliland ka faa’iidey la soo noqoshadii xoriyadeeda iyo in ay ka qoomameyneyso oo ay ku qasaartey ficilkii ay kaga baxdey midnimadii Somaliya.
Marka si fiican loo taxliiliyo waxaa aad arkeysaa sawir ka guud ee arintan iyo midhaha ka dhashay la soo noqoshadii qaranimadii Somaliland ee xoriyadii 26 June 1960.
Waxay ahayd 18 May 1991 markii ugu horeysey ee lagu baraarugay in Somaliland dib u heshay qaranimadeedii mar qudha ayaa sawaxanka farxada dadka reer Somaliland is qabsatey gees ka gees waxaana lagu soo dhaweeyey niyadsami.
Waxay maalmahaas ahayd maalmo aad ugu adag dadka somaliyeed oo dagaal sokeeye ka socdo meelo badan oo dalkii Jamhuuriyadii Dimoqraadiga somaliya la isku odhan jirey, waxaa xaaladu ahayd mid murugo leh oo aaney jirin dawlad,sharci,kala dambeyn,oo nidaamkii burburay marxaladaas ayaa hubkii dawladii somaliya dhamaantii uu gacanta u galey dadkii rayidka ahaa.
Hadaba 18 ka May 1991 waxay kala badbaadisay dadkii Somaliland ee xukumadii kacaanku hubka iskugu dhiibtey una kala qaybisay Kacaandiid iyo Kacaan hadii aynu si kale u nidhaahno waa Taageeriyaalkii Mucaaradka iyo Taageerayaashii Dawlada, hadii aaney Ururkii SNM iyo Waxgaradkii beelaha Somaliland u fikirin qaab saxa oo ah in wixii la kala tabaney la iska saamaxo maantana laga wadashaqeeyo iskaashi,walaalnimo iyo dhismaha dawladnimada Somaliland dadka reer Somaliland maanta waxay lahaan lahaayeen weji kale oo qofkii waxgarad ahi garan karo tusaalena waxaa ugu filan qofkii maskaxdiisa ka shaqeysinaya xaada ilaa had aka oogan Konfurtii Somaliya.
Guud ahaan gobolkasta oo Somaliland ahi maanta waxaa uu ka horumarsan yahay Gobolkasta oo Konfurtii Somaliya ah taasna waxaa sabab u ah dhismaha dawladnimada iyo nidaamka ka jira Somaliland.
Sida xaqiiqada ah maalinba maalinta ka dambeysa waxaa sii horumaraya gobolada Somaliland,waxaa horukac la yaableh ka muuqdaa waxbarashada,waxaana si tartiibtartiiba u kobcaya gobolada iyo degmooyinka dalka,Somaliland dhismihii iyo dib ula soo noqoshadii xoriyadii 26 June 1960 waxay Somaliland ka badbaadisay :
- War lords kii koonfurta ka sameysmey
- Urur diimeedyadii hubeysnaa
- Budhcad badeedkii
- Kala haysashadii hantida ee bulshada dhexdeeda
- Kala aargoosi ku saabsan beelbeel
Taa badalkeedana Dadkii reer Somaliland waxay noqdeen kuwo isku soo dhawaadey oo caqabadihii dawladii siyaad Bare kala dhexdhigtey ka bogsadey,taas waxaa tusaale kuugu filad waxaa beelihii aan SNM taageeri jirine iney dhexdhexaadiyaan beelihii SNM ta taageeri jirey markey dhexdooda xurguf iyo dagaalo siyaasadeed dhexmareen sidii shirkii Boroma ee nabadeeenta.
Somaliland waxay ku caano maashay ka bixidii midnida Somaliya waxaana Allah(swt) waafajiyey jidkii nabada horumarka markii ay ka baxday midowgii umana calaacalayso midnimo dambe,waxaad moodaa in dad weli ku riyoonayaan midnimo dambe, balse dadka taas aaminsani waxay ku jiraan riyo maalmeel sabatuna maxay tahay:
- Somaliyada konfureed oo dib u dhac badani saameyey oo dhinaca siyaasada danabgelya iyo dawladnimada hogaaminteeda ah
- Somalidii konfureed oo kala qaybsan oo aan iyaguba hashiisku ahayn in ay dawlad mida yeeshaan waayo waxay u kala qaybsan yihiin maamul goboleedyo aan xitaa si fiican uwada shaqeyn.
- Hogaan siyaasadeed oo karti, waayo aragnimo,daacadnimo,aqoon leh oo aan laga hayn ila hada Somalida dhexdeeda kaas oo hanan kara quluubta bulshada Konfurta.
- Daganaasha la’aanta,nabadgelyo xumida iyo xoogaga siyaasadeed eek u hirdamaya siyaasada Somalida gaar ahaan dawlada muqdisho oo aan u muqan mid xal laga gaadhayo sanadahansoo socda.
- Dalalka shisheeye ee danahooda ka dhex u gaadhsanaya Somaliya oo aan marna ogoleyn in somaliya cusub oo xor ah la arko iyo kuwo somali ah oo qabaanayaal u ah.
Arimahaasi oo dhami waxay ina tusayaan in ay riyo tahay in midnimo Somaliya laga fikiro hada balse ay Somalida la gudboon tahay isku soo ururinta Gobolkii Konfureed ee Somaliya oo kala go’go ay halka Gobolkii waqooyi uu yahay mid is haysta oo waliba u socda jidka horumarka .
Way jiraan in aan Somaliland weli gaadhin meeshii aan la rabey balse waxaa aan marag madoonto ah in ay waxbadan oo togan ay qabsadeen dadka reer waqooyiga ahi ee reer Somaliland.
Weliba hadii turuturooyinka iyi jalaafooyinka laga deyn lahaa waxaa dhameystirmi lahaa guusha kama dambeysta ah,balse noloshu xaasid ma weydo eh waxaa lugta haya kuwo ku dhashay iyo cadawyo shisheeye oo aan danano gaara ka leh geeska,balse kuwaasi waa kuwo ku hungoobidoona damacooda,shacabka reer Somaliland na way og yihiin nacabkooda iyo nasteexooda.
Somaliland waxay ka faa’iidey dib ula soo noqoshadii Xornimadeeda:
- Qaranimo iyo madax banaani
- Dimoqraadiyad iyo xisbiyo
- Suuq xor ah
- Shacab walaalo ah oo isku duuban
- Jaamicado iyo waxbarsho mid gaar ah iyo mid dawladeed oo tiro iyo tayoba leh
Arimo badan oo kale,hadii ay hesho hogaan daacad ah iyo aqoon yahaniin wadaniyiin ahna waxaa saxmi doona dhaliilaha jira.
Somalilander ku waxay ku xusi doonaan 18 May farxad iyo Caleemo qoyan.
Qofku wuu ka hadli karaa wixii uu aqoon u lee yahay isaga oo si cilmi ah u sharaxaya waxaa uu aqoon u lee yahay balse iskama hadli karo oo weliba si fudud ugama hadli karo wax aanu aqoon u lahayn, isaga oo iska dhigaya in uu aqoonteeda lee yahay.
Waxaa jirtaa in qalab kasta oo wax lagu test gareeyaa uu lee yahay waxa loo yaqaan false test oo aanu 100% xaqiiqo natiijo ah keenin iyada oo arimo badani sabab u noqon karaan sida,qalabka tayadiisa,qaabka test ka loo qaaday iyo meesha test ka laga qaaday hadana inta badan qalabka test ku ee covid -19 ku waa mid ugu hooseyn 70% natiijadiisu sax tahay iyada oo ku xidhan meelaha dheecaanka laga qaado sida candhuufta, carabka dalqada hoose iyo sanka gudihiisa.
Test ka cida qaadaysaa waa in ay tahay doctor (pathologist) aqoonteeda leh oo taxliili kara natiijada testka. Sidaa darteed ma aha in nin dawo dhaqameedka wax ka bartey oo mufti umada iskaga dhigo, oo uu ka hor yimaado habkii looga hortegeyey cudurka dadkana shaki ka geliyo qalabkii lagu baadhayey taas badalkeeda waxay ahayd in uu hadii uu dhaliil hayo oo uu qalabkan wax lagu baadho ka shaki qabo saxnimada natiijadiisa inta aanu saxaafada la hadal wasaarada caafimaadka iyo gudiga loo xilsaarey ula yimaado dooda uu ka qabo qalabkan oo cadeemaha uu hayo uu halkaa ku soo bandhigo taas oo keliya ayaa u furnayd mudanaha balse shaki dadka lagu ridaa kama mid aha xitaa xirfada caafimaadka ee uu mr Gaboobe sheeganayo faqri baana u dhaxeeya dawo dhaqameedada iyo dawooyinka kale. ugu dambeyntii waxaanu lee nahay wakhtigan adag bulshada ayaan lagu jahawareerin wax aan cadeyn loo haynin.

Swawm – Fasting is the fourth pillar of Islam. It is an act of Ibadah.
The fast of Ramadan becomes obligatory when thirty days of the preceding
Month, Sha’ban, are past, or with the seeing of the new moon of Ramadan.
During Ramadan, all adult healthy Muslims are obliged to fast from dawn to sunset.
Fasting means to keep oneself back from eating, drinking and conjugal relations.
Fasting is not incumbent upon the sick, the traveller, the very old and very young and
Women who are pregnant or have infant children to feed. But the sick and the traveller should make up the days they have missed, when they are able to do so.

Since first being recorded late last year in China, the Covid-19 coronavirus has spread around the world, and been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. However, differences in testing mean that the number of cases may be understated for some countries.
The number of deaths is a more dependable indicator. The disease has hit certain countries, including Italy, Spain and the US, with particular cruelty.
Meanwhile in Asia, where the disease began, the spread continues, although in China it seems for now to have passed its peak.
In Europe most countries have closed schools, and many are in lockdown.
Finally, a reminder that most people who contract the disease recover; many may never notice they had it at all.
Due to the unprecedented and ongoing nature of the coronavirus outbreak, this article is being regularly updated to ensure that it reflects the current situation at the date of publication. Any significant corrections made to this or previous versions of the article will continue to be footnoted in line with Guardian editorial policy.
