^ thats a loud of horse shit we live in the 21st century a script even latin-ized does not clear the language barrier, and some people actually see their tradition scripts with positivity..look at the israelis , the russians...the chinese and many more who choose to keep their heritage and are thriving.

what does latin script and literacy have to do with each other :mindblown:

literacy is the ability to read and comprehend a particular script or to understand a particular language, are arabs illiterate because they cant write in latin. you make absolutely no sense.

Because it was the script chosen by Allah as the script for his kalamah.

God chose Hebrew prior to that.
But then they were cursed, and thus the final revelation was sent in Arabic, a script highly more superior compared to latin.

We have to understand the circumstances. It was post-colonial era at the time and virtually everyone who was able to read and write in Somalia and Djibouti at the time were only able to do so in English, French and Italian. These languages use the Latin script. It was just the common sense thing to do at the time. Siad Barre did the most logical thing.

Siad Barre sent thousands of young people to teach their parents, siblings, friends, kinsmen and fellow Somalis how to read and write with this script with the aim of educating as much people as he can and as fast as he can. Why waste time and educate the same teachers of another foreign script they know nothing about?

At the end of the day, the Somali language uses the Latin alphabet and that will never change. Look forward. Not backwards. What's done is done. This is not even a big deal.

Superior in what way? If God would've sent a roman prophet then the Qur'aan would've been in Latin. If God would've sent a Somali prophet it would be in Somali etc.

The prophet God sent happened to be Arab and therefore the revelations were sent in Arabic aswell.


You're just trying to find a way for your invalid argument.

My relative Osman Yusuf Kenadid invented the writing in Afsomali. May god have mercy on his soul.
