In Article 2 and 3 of this draft it says:

After the shari’ah this charter is the supreme law of Jubaland.

1. Islam is the only religion and the basis of law of Jubaland


I wonder how they will define Sharia law? There are some countries today like Saudia Arabia which rule by Sharia law, but this law is unwritten so it's not clear what the law actually is.

Islam being the only religion reminds me of the draft constitution for Somalia that was published about a year ago, where it said things like:

Article 2. State and religion: (1) Islam is the religion of the Somali Republic. (2) No religion other than Islam can be propagated in the Republic. (3) No law which is not compliant with Shar'ia can be enacted

...

Article 22. Freedom of religion and belief
(1) A person is free to practice his or her religion.
(2) No Muslim can renounce Islam.
(3) No religion other than Islam can be propagated in Somalia.


I'm not sure they understand what the idea of freedom of religion means in this case if that's what it entails.

In Article 3's end where it says

4. The Calendars shall be Islamic (Hijriya), secular and Somali


I'm wondering why Somalis don't tend to use their own Somali calendar more often? I usually see Somalis with the Hijri calendar on their walls and counting the days by Arabic names instead of the Somali ones, kind of strange.
