djinn - lower demon/spirits?
Seerat Moutassam
01:19:44
Jinns are made of fire while humans are made from the soil
Heather Jesme
01:19:46
Like mischievous or evil spirits?
Seerat Moutassam
01:20:15
Iblis (Satan) was a Jinn
Lea Dooley
01:20:45
Thank you, Seerat!
Nadiif Buraale
01:20:59
Jin is more spirit, could be evil or otherwise
Lea Dooley
01:21:12
Much like buda kalah in Indonesia
Melissa Stone
01:22:10
Jinn can best be described as something similar to spirits/ghosts, except that they do not represent the souls of the formerly living. They can be mischevious, evil, kind, any assortment of personality--similar to how humans can be diverse in our actions, thoughts, and personalities. They are thought of as beings of smoke that affect our world without us seeing them. We as Muslims believe that our world is affected by jinn in often subtle ways; it's a bit similar to how someone in the US may have a door slam on its own and say it's a ghost. Or at least that's how I've explained it to people before.

Celida Egues
01:41:54
Question: Is cupping still practiced and if so, has it become more acceptable to providers. There was a time in the 90s during which parents were reported to the Department of Children and Family Services due to cupping.
Diane Diedrich
01:42:14
We always ask if they want an interpreter. If they say no, should we still have one with them? We have found that sometimes when they say no, we are not sure our conversation is being understood.
Judy Griggs
01:42:43
Does America have boots on the ground in Somalia to assist those who want out?
Angela Allen
01:44:40

collin elias
01:44:58
would a peer model work in the Somali community? If so what would that model look like?
Sarah Marshall
01:46:06
What are the cultural standards or what is considered acceptable in terms of sex education? Safer sex education? IS there a difference between what is acceptable for males to know versus females? Are
Steve Wiesner
01:49:36
How easily can cultural beliefs in the Somali community be translated to other Muslim communities? In particular with respect to mental health.
Megan Lamont
01:50:42
No question
Megan Lamont
01:50:47
i cant get the hand to go down
Melissa Stone
01:53:09
@Steve Wiesner It's probably good to keep in mind that each Muslim community is unique because we all come from different cultures and language backgrounds even while sharing the same religion. It's similar to how there are Christian communities all around the world but may have very different cultures from one another. So even within East Africa, there will be language and culture differences between, say, someone who is Somali and Egyptian and Ethiopian--even if they are all Muslim. Still, there are things that we will all share as Muslims that fall into the realm of religious belief, such as dietary restrictions, the need to pray at specific times during the day, and a higher likelihood of a separation of genders for modesty.
Jennifer Walton
01:56:03
Great talk, and as you are answering the question about mental health, same with having conversations with families and communities around developmental disabilities. Any specific suggestions?
Angela Jerome
01:56:31
How do I address issues of domestic violence in a culturally sensitive way? I’ve assessed a few Somali woman at my Health Center who mentioned physical abuse in their marriages, but would not discuss it further because they did not want to betray their husbands.
Josh Jones
02:00:04
I used to work for the public library system in Columbus but my manager there did bring up Somali holidays, observances, etc. in our weekly meetings because we had many Somali patrons. Also, when meeting rooms were not reserved, we set them aside for prayer locations. That has been almost a decade ago though so hopefully they are doing even more
Arianne Learn
02:02:17
In interviewing a local Somalian, they indicated that many individuals will say that they hurt or ache all over versus localizing to a specific location of the body as the belief is that they will get a pill to take care of an ache or pain. It was explained that many will embellish complaints to others. Has this been an experience that you have come across?
Sarah Dearhamer
02:03:54
Should we be asking for a male or female interpreter for medical appointments based if they are male or female?
Celida Egues
02:06:31
Can you talk about the acceptability by western providers of burning or cupping?
Melissa Stone
02:06:45
@Sarah Dearhamer That would probably be appreciated if they were in the room or on video, especially if the body is going to be exposed. For instance, if I was going to have to take off my hijab during an appointment for my doctor to examine something, I would prefer to also have a female there. And totally agree that turning off the video or turning it away would work.
