Darood Ethnic Group in Somalia

My friend Ms Suha (top picture) with her lovely sisters (bottom picture)
Suha and her lovely sisters belong to the Darood >Dhulbante>Jimaac Siyad.

The Darod (SomaliDarood or DaaroodArabicبني داوود‎) is a Somali clan. The father of this clan is named Abdirahman bin Isma'il al-Jabarti, but is more commonly known as Darod. In the Somali language, the word Daarood means "an enclosed compound," a conflation of the two words daar (compound) and ood (place enclosed by wall, trees, woods, fence, etc). Read more here.

The Dhulbahante ("Siciid Harti") is a Somali clan, and a part of the Harti confederation of Darod clans.source
