99.8% of So­ma­li­a's pop­u­la­tion is Muslim and Islamic sharia as the basic source for 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 faith even took root in its place of origin.
