This paper was presented at the Second Nordic Horn of Africa Conference held on 31 October -01 November, 2008, Norway, Oslo University. The Islah Movement, being ideologically affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood, has been continually developing its organizational capacity and sharpening its views on major contemporary issues since 1978. Scholarly studies of the Islamic movements in Somalia remain very superficial, based mostly on sensational media coverage and security related studies in the post-9/11 event and increased curiosity in the political Islam in the Horn of Africa. This paper benefits from the opportunity of its author being a researcher, witness and participant of the historical evolution of the Islah Movement. It contributes to filling the knowledge gaps in this particular field of Islamic studies in the Horn of Africa and highlights the moderate nature of Islah and its position on major contemporary issues.
