In 2013, TIME Magazine included Hassan Sheikh Mohamud (President of Somalia) on its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. They listed his efforts at “advancing national reconciliation, anti-corruption measures, and socio-economic and security sector reforms” as the reasons for making the list.
Though he is hailed for his reform efforts by some, the constitution of Somalia defines Islam as the state religion of the Federal Republic of Somalia, and Islamic Shari’a as the basic source for national legislation. It also stipulates that no law that is inconsistent with the basic tenets of Shari’a can be enacted.
As Elisha prayed, “O God, open his eyes and let him see.” We pray for the ruler of #Somalia. #Pray4OpenDoors
