Jihadi Culture in Somalia: ‘Eid al-Adha 1441

The IS-Somalia khatib (deliverer of the congregational prayer sermon) for ‘Eid al-Adha prayers with the staff signalling his role and the authority of Islam. The act of holding a staff (sometimes a spear or other instrument depending on local practices) is considered by some Muslim jurists to be mustahabb (recommended but not required).
