"Go to the Land of Habasha" Prophet Mohamed PBUH ordered his followers who were fleeing from Mecca, Saudi Arabia, as a result of religious prosecution. "There" he added "you will find a king under whose throne no one is harmed, no matter which religion a person believes" That was the eons of time which dates back to more than 1400 years. The land was Ethiopia and the King´s name was King Nagasha. In connection to that, I can relate my present situation in Sweden to that of the Prophet era. As a Moslem who ran away from strife and I have finally ended up in a non-Moslem country,Sweden, where I am granted asylum till such time peace returns to my country: Somalia. Here we can see that humanity has no boundaries even though some people attempt to use religion as a block to deny people to help each other on humanity basis.

Sweden is ruled by a king (ceremonial though) under whose throne everybody is protected no matter which color, creed or religion a person believes in and, above all, no child within the jurisdiction of Swedish law goes to bed hungry or left in the streets, abandoned and abused.

That is where most of my joy and respect had sourced from when I attended a high profile event held at the Kulturparken of Vaxjo on 2011-04-01in which Princess Victoria and her husband Daniel were received. My eight-year daughter, Maria has been selected to give flowers to the newly-wed couple and, as a father, I feel honored to have been part of this historic moment.

At a much earlier time
People started to trickle in small numbers
But had grown soon to the size of a crowd
Till the room was packed at full capacity
They exchanged smiles to express joy
As silence kept descending like a night
No sooner did the anxiety of waiting crept
Than we were animated by the sight of the princess
Beaming with such a majestic elegance
As Daniel waved and walked gently alongside.
What a pleasure!

Sounds wonderful to me. Why would anyone want to leave this beatuful place. You may return to your country when peace comes but your children will remain; they will know this as their home. Somolia will become just a memory; a bad one at that.
