Abdul Jones started this petition to Somaliland government

Somaliland sounds a lot like the failed state of Somalia. People often confuse Somaliland for somalia because the names are so similar. 
people from Somalia mockingly always say, “Somali Land is the Land of Somalis. We are somalis so it is our land”.
So it is better to change our countries name. Back to our historical name called ADAL. 

The Adal Sultanate, or Kingdom of Adal was a Muslim Somalilander kingdom and sultanate located in the Horn of Africa. It was founded by Sabr ad-Din II after the fall of the Sultanate of Ifat. The kingdom flourished from around 1415 to 1577. The sultanate and state were established by the local inhabitants of Zeila. At its height, the polity controlled most of the territory in the Horn region immediately east of the Ethiopian Empire (Abyssinia). The Adal Empire maintained a robust commercial and political relationship with the Ottoman Empire.

This history indicates that Somaliland was one of the earliest places, if not the first, where Islam was introduced to Africa. It was Zeila, the capital of Adal Kingdom or Sultanate. Somaliland people should be proud of the fact that their country was the first place that embraced Islam in Africa and then spread it to the continent of Africa. So, there is no better name than Adal Republic to name Somaliland. The people of Adal Republic are Adalites. 

please support this petition so that the government can change our countries name back to Adal. 

jazak Allah.
