What is the dominant religion in Somalia?
Islam. 99.8% of Somalia's population are Muslim and Islamic sharia is the basic source for the national legislation. Islam entered the region very early on, as a group of persecuted Muslims had, at Prophet Muhammad's urging, sought refuge across the Red Sea in the Horn of Africa. Islam may thus have been introduced into Somalia well before the fight even took root in its place of origin.
