in this series about amazing Muslim women, I am excited to write about the story of Fatima bint Muhammad. also known as Fatima al-Fihri, bint Muhammad was a Moroccan woman who is credited with founding the al-Qarawiyyin university in 859 AD, the oldest university in the world that is still operating to this day.
Fatima bint Muhammad Al-Fihriya Al-Qurashiya فاطمة بنت محمد الفهرية القرشية also nicknamed Um Al-Banun, was born in 800 CE in Qayrawan modern-day Kairouan, Abbasid Caliphate in a man named Abdallah Mohammed Ibn Abdallah Al-Fihri, who was a merchant. She also had a sister named Mariam and a brother and was of Arab Qurayshi descent. Fatima and her sister Mariam were said to be well educated and very knowledgeable about religion and well versed in classical Islamic teachings such as Fiqh, jurisprudence, and the hadith. She and her family were among a community of Arab people who immigrated from Qayrawan, now called AL-Kiraouan, modern Tunisia day to Maghreb Morocco in the city of Fez Fatima. Her family was a part of a community called the Qarawiyyin”, which means the ones from Qayrawan. The city was said to be a bustling cosmopolitan metropolis of the time. It was founded by its ruler Idris II who was an Alwite sharif of Iraqi origin. A few years later it was said to be filled to overflowing with thousands of Muslims emigrating from Al Andalusia, Based on the selfless actions of Fatima and her sister Mariam, they could be compared to other Abbasid leaders, who would use their wealth to commission buildings for the public good that was done in the era that Fatima was born. The Abbasids of Iraq had loosely controlled the Aghlabids of Tunisia. Both the ruling houses valued the science industry and the arts. Abbasid women from caliphal families of means and noble houses would frequently donate amenities to travels to fund their journey to Mecca Amat al Aziz. The wife of Caliph Harun al Rachid ordered an aqueduct and reservoir to be built after seeing the effects of a drought in the surrounding lands. The commissioning of these public works may have had an ulterior motive. The Aghlabids were taxing ordinary citizens in arrangements not warranted by the holy which is why it is believed that Fatima and her family immigrated to Morocco due to the un Islamic taxes. Both the military of Qayrawan, (modern-day Kairoua) and its everyday people, was said to be educated, pious, and legal-minded objected to the liberties that the Aghlabid rulers were taking. It was caused by the outbreak of violence by the Jund (the standing army) from 824-826 A.D. Which had caused drove hundreds of noble families to make the 1600 km (1000 mile) journey from Qayrawan to Fez, Fatima’s family went on to build their wealth after years of hard work. Her father had become a successful businessman. Almost all of them departed before reaping the benefits of their wealth. Her father, her husband, and her brother died and left her with the family fortune. The city lacked schools and masjids to accommodate its population so Fatima and her sister donated their inheritance to build more mosques, one Al Qarawiyyin and the other Al Andalus. In 859, She decided to use her inheritance to fund a project to build a Mosque and early on began buying property adjacent to her initial land to increase the size of the mosque. Fatima started her project at the beginning of Ramadan month 859 A.D. and fasted during construction and promised not to eat before the completion of construction work. She bought land nearby, from a man of the Hawaara tribe. Fatima also insisted that all the materials for construction should be local, with stones and sand that were extracted from the land. They used bricks and roof tiles were made also from fired clay of the same land she bought. and after 2 years later the project was completed, historical reports offer that she made prayers of gratitude in the masjid she had so hard to build. she had even named her Mosque after her own hometown Qayrawan. The Mosque would later develop into the Al qarwarawiyyn University, where it would become the first cultural-educational, and religious hub in the Islamic world. Her building severed the community as a mosque, library, and a university for the city of Fez. There were even “Hamams” steam rooms set up which are still functioning properly today. In the beginning, the education that Al qarwarawiyyn university offered was courses in religious instruction and the holy Qur’an, but its curriculum gradually expanded with time. It would eventually offer education in various sciences, including Arabic grammar, geography, history, mathematics, logic medicine, alchemy, chemistry, and astronomy. Her library is said to be the oldest in the world, the library contains a copy of the Holy Qur’an dating all the way back to the 9th century written Kufic script on camel skin, and thousands of manuscripts from a range of fields, and an Arabic version of the Gospel of Mark that dates back to the 12th century. the Al Qarawiyyin university accepted students from all around the world who set off in a quest to study at the University, some of the university’s more famous scholars that had graduated from Al-Qarawiyyin are Pope Silvester, Nicolas Cleynaerts, cartographer Mohammed al-Idrisi, the famous traveler Leo Africanus, the historian Historiographer and thinker Ibn Khaldun, Sufi poet and philosopher Ibn Hazm, Medical, grammarian Ben Ajrum, Dutch Orientalist and mathematician Jacob van Gool, Sufi leader Muhammad al-Jazuli, Gerbert of Aurillac, who was Pope from 999 to 1003, is also believed to have studied at the university and is credited for introducing Arabic numerals that are still used in Europe today, and prominent Jewish philosopher Moses Ben Maimon.
Fatima al-Fihri’s sister Mariam went on to not only sponsor but also build the Al Andalus mosque, the grand Andalusian mosque named after the immigrants from the Andalusian region from southern Spain. Fatima’s university to this day continues to contribute to scientific and intellectualism. As well as in the field of language and literature philosophy, astronomy, and medicine, as well as Islamic law and jurisprudence. The Guinness World Records acknowledges it as the world’s oldest and currently operating institution in the world as well as the United Nations. Fatima-al-fihri is considered to be a saint in some parts of modern-day north Africa and is still respected especially in fez morocco. In 2017 a prize was created in Tunisia in her honor, It rewards initiatives that encourage access to training and professional responsibilities for women and an academic program. the scholarship is given to students from Europe and North Africa that also pays tribute to Fatima al Fihri.
thank you everyone for taking the time to read this amazing story, so what did you think after reading this, or if you have any information for this amazing Muslim woman let me know in the comments down below.
The women featured in this piece are two amazing Muslim women that I feel are not that talked about enough and not that well known, in the west. i am hoping to help remedy that right away with my series
Rābiʿa al-ʿAdawiyya al-Qaysiyya Arabic: رابعة العدوية القيسية she is also known as Hazrat Bibi Rabia Basri, Rabia Al Basri Rabia Basri, or Rabia of Basra.
Rabia was born in 714-718 CE in Basra Iraq to the Qays tribe she was an early Sufi Muslim, saint Sufi mystic, and poet. She followed the concept of divine love and ascension.
Rabi’a was The fourth daughter of her impoverished parents and was named Rabi’a as the word literally means fourth. Her father was a Ismail, a holy man committed to a life of poverty and lived on the edge of the desert near the town of Basra. Due to their poverty, the family had no oil in their house. On the night she was born they could not anoint as was the custom of the time. Ismail refused to beg from his neighbors and this caused his wife to weep, upset Rabia’s father had fallen asleep.
He soon had a dream in which Prophet Mohammed, may peace be upon him, told him not be sad the girl child, who has just been born is a queen amongst women and was told that his faith would be rewarded. Soon after the dream, Rabi’a’s father went straight to the Amir with tears of joy rolling down cheeks to which the Amir was delighted on receiving this message. Knowing the prophet may peace upon him, visited the man in a dream, he gave 1000 dinars and gave the family money to help raise their children. When Rabi’a was eleven years old her father died and her mother was left to raise them. The mother took her family to Basra. On the way, their caravan was attacked, her mother was killed and she and her siblings were kidnapped and sold into slavery.
Eventually, she wound up in Baghdad Iraq. She was bought and her talents were exploited by all of her owners. She was a talented singer so her master put her to work as an entertainer. One day when she was about thirty-six, she was singing at a wedding party when suddenly the song changed instead of singing to wedding guest, she was singing to Allah God. From then on she refused to sing for anyone but Allah, and this angered her master. He began to abuse her, but she still held fast to her beliefs. During the day she would do the master’s housework and at night she would pray. It is believed that her master saw a light surrounding her which left him captivated and in the morning he freed her.
Once Rabi’a was freed she went out into the desert outside of Basra Iraq and spent several years worshipping Allah becoming an ascetic, and living in semi-seclusion while also devoting her life to celibacy and dematerialization. Unlike many Sufi saints of her time, she did not learn from a teacher or master but instead turned to Allah God as her guide and teacher. According to historical reports of her life she did not own much, nothing much but a broken jug, a rush mat, a brick she had used as a pillow. She spent all night in prayer and contemplation chiding herself if she slept as she felt that it took her away from her love of Allah God.
As her fame grew, she had gained many disciples and had discussions with many renewed religious people of her time. She had also many offers of marriage, even from the Amir of Basra at the time. She refused all marriage offers, as she wanted to devote all of her time to worshiping Allah God. She performed the pilgrimage to Mecca, Rabi’a concentrated on God’s love believing and teaching that love alone is the path to Allah God. Several hours of prayer were not devoted to asking things of God Allah, but was focusing on just on worshiping Allah God.
Afterwhile she became a spiritual leader and taught both men and women her revisionary love mysticism. She focused on the teachings of Asceticism and divine love which later became a major Sufi precept. Rabi’a’s teaching was in connection with the stages of Repentance, patience, gratitude, hope, fear, poverty, renunciation, unification, trust, love. People would travel miles just to study with her. It was said that Rabi’a Loved Allah God so much that once a person asked Rabi’a if she hated Satan. She responded with “My love of Allah has so possessed me that no place remains for loving or hating any save Him”.
She was the first to introduce the concept of divine love, the idea that Allah God should be loved for Allah God’s own sake, and not out of fear as earlier religious leaders had often taught. She also taught Repentance was a gift from Allah God because no one could repent unless Allah God had already accepted them. Giving a person the gift of repentance, she also taught that sinners must fear the punishment they deserved for their sins, but she also offered such sinners far more hope of paradise, then most other ascetics during her life. It is said that she abstained from meat and was a vegetarian. She would be surrounded by animals when she meditated in the woods. One day a disciple of hers Hasan-al-Basri, who was also a Sufi teacher, had approached them in the woods which had made the animals run away. He felt sad when the animals ran away from him, and sought the advice of Rabi’a. Rabi’a then asked him what he had eaten that day, he replied animal fat and Rabia explained that animals ran away from those who eat their flesh. There is also a legend about Hassan Al Basri, who was a Muslim spiritual master of the period, thought so highly of Rabi’a, that he would often refuse to teach if she was not present.
Sufyan al-Thawri was quoted to say about Rabi’a “Take me to the teacher. For when I am apart from her, I can find no solace.” even a famous prayer is Also attributed to Rabi’a “O, Allah! If I worship Thee in fear of Hell, burn me in Hell; and if I worship Thee in hope of Paradise, exclude me from Paradise; but if I worship Thee for Thine own sake, withhold not Thine everlasting beauty.” She was in her early to mid-eighties when she died and was buried in Basra Iraq, Rābiʿand lived her life as an influential and intellectual woman who had successfully reached a state in which all Sufis and non-Sufi Muslims try to archive. Winning against the selfish human nature that keeps people from doing good deeds in this world.
she was an amazing Muslim woman and her story deserves to be heard
Nusaybah bint Ka’ab was one of the few women of the time to pledge allegiance to Allah and his messenger. She was a member of the Banu Najjar tribe that lived in the holy city of Medina Nusaybah was the sister of Abdullah bin K’ab and the mother of Abdullah and Habib ibn Zayd al-Ansari.
She becomes one of the companions of Muhammad and would be fought beside prophet Mohammed, may peace be upon him, and his other companions may peace be upon them. She was well known for her bravery and was a very skilled warrior and it is said that Muslim soldiers would marvel at her skills with a sword. She also least sustained 12 major wounds in her battles and overcame them.
Nusaybah bint Ka’ab is most famous for her brave efforts in defending Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in the Battle of Uhud. Like many other Sahabiyat, Nusaybah was initially there to aid the soldiers during battle. In the excitement of perceived victory, the Muslim archers on the hill deserted their positions and neglected Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) orders to never leave their position. This left him (PBUH), and a handful of companions vulnerable to their enemies including Nusaybah. The tide of the battle had changed.
Nusaybah bint Ka’ab then picked up a sword and arrows and rushed to the defense of the Messenger of Allah. She struck fatal blows to her opponents with her swords and shot arrows at them to protect the Prophet (PBUH). He (PBUH) himself said, “Wherever I turned, left or right, on the Day of Uhud I saw her fighting for me.” Nusaybah is most famous for her brave efforts to defend Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in the battle of Uhud, where Nusaybah was there to Aid the soldiers during the battle. In the excitement of perceived victory, the archers on the hill deserted their positions and neglected Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) orders no one not abandons their positions. This left Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). a handful of companions vulnerable to attack Nusaybah picked up a sword and arrows and rushed to defend Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). She struck blow after blow to her opponents with her sword and repeatedly shot arrows at them. Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) himself had once said “Wherever I turned, left or right, on the Day of Uhud I saw her fighting for me. At the end of the battle she gotten inflicted with 13 wounds and a deep neck wound that stayed with until her death”,.
This amazing warrior woman and amazing Muslim women’s story needs to be told pronto, this is the end of this piece for now.

After the repeal of the Muslim ban by 46th President Joseph R Biden I have seen online comments that say oh that is such a big step for the Muslim community and immigrants or the muslin ban is gone now finely.
For me as a Muslim women I feel a lot differently, as a Muslim women in this country it is most differently not over for Muslims, as the effects will still linger in one form or another. After all the ban give Islamophobic, racists, and people that was kind to us but still harbor Islamophobic thoughts towards the Muslim community. The permission to be discriminatory and Islamophobic towards me and my Muslim brothers and sisters for being from the social “wrong” religion was ban for a reason right. We do not want any of the enemies in our own country that mindset will not go away after just repealing one ban that was made to oppress black and brown Muslims and non Muslims. This will not change a Islamophobic and racist mindset after just doing one act aimed in the direction of change. This is why I remain unhopeful and admittedly unwilling to engage in “unity” and “good” faith. The very same people who want to oppress me and other Muslims with their vacuous racism towards Rashida Talb and Ilhan Omar calling her a terrorist saying that no Muslim should ever run for office.
All this leading me to ask myself why? Why am I told to engage nonsensical fake good faith engagement with those very same racist Islamophobic people who see me a Muslim Hijabi woman as a Terrorist just like they see Muslim women serving the senate, those very same racist who tell us Muslim to assimilate into civil society but when we go beyond that and actually by Allah’s will get jobs in the White House. They still say we are terrorists, we need to be banned from their country, that we are savages that support sharia and all other racist propagate which creates a fear to fuel bans like the one America had.
So no I am not going to work with them, nor heal with my Islamophobic oppressors, no I will not give a cookie to anyone for lifting America’s Muslim ban, even though I still do find myself trying to be more optimistic. trying to make myself be more hopeful than I am that with time things will get better for Muslims in the country but in the meantime, I will continue resisting and fighting by wearing my hijab and my Arabic Islamic jewelry’. unapologetically showing to the world, saying that I am a proud Muslim who will not be so easily broken by the hate that fueled our country’s Muslim ban and will try to grow from this experience.

1. taking off our hijabs to make you feel safe or happy
as Muslim women, most of us are expected to take off our hijab just to make bigots happy, simply make ends meet by being able to get a job that would otherwise reject us, or just to avoid discrimination, happy to say that it is something we Muslim women simply do not owe you full stop
2. being sympathetic to discriminatory Islamophobic laws that strip us of our own freedom of choice
being sympathetic and understanding of hijab bans in any country or being supportive of bans that stripe us of our own choice to wear what we want
3. to “understand” or be tolerant of your islamophobia
we do not owe you tolerance of your intolence towards Muslims period
4. teaching you you about our religion
we do not owe you an automatic education of our religion simply because you are to lazy to take your self to a library
5. an apology for terrorism that has nothing to do with us
we do not owe you, an apology for Terrorist attacks that have nothing to do with us some of which that has also happened to us period.
6. being silent about everyday anti-Muslim discrimination, that happens to us.
we simply do not owe you our silence regarding Islamaphobic discrimination just because talking about our own experiences makes you feel uncomfortable
7. being the silent exotic pretty token ornament for you
we do not owe you our bodies, for your Islamophobic fetishization and tokenization period.
that is the end of my list, for 7 things Muslim women do not owe anyone. as a Muslim woman, I have been wanting to write something like this, as I feel these are things that are not said enough, when I was at college I actually felt at one point like I was actually being treated as an ornament for being a Muslim woman, rather than a person.
while I have never been asked directly to apologize for terrorism, I feel like that was the underlying implication. when I had got into a fight with the same girl that I feel just wanted to hang around me for simply being Muslim. to add even more trauma, when I talk about these issues, I have actually get told that I should just ignore the hate, or be more forgiving of Islamaphobes, as they work long-hour jobs and might live in rural places so they may not be so educated about Islam or me. yeah, I have actually had that enraging thing said to me before sigh.

Aicha is a creature said to be similar to a Jinn or demon, she is usually depicted as a beautiful young woman with goat or camel legs.
she usually lives near water in rivers or in flames she can also appear to men in dreams and may leave them impotent for life from water and uses her beauty to seduce men and even kill or drive them insane
Aicha waits for her prey underwater sources and flames, as men approach her who are unfortunate enough to encounter her she kills them, some say that if you ever alone and if you hear the sounds of rusty chains dragging on the ground Aicha is Kadisha is nearby.
in other myths I found she helped out Morocco during the Spanish invasion of Morocco Spanish soldiers came across Aicha kanidsha, she seduced them and killed them they were later found dead people of Morocco believe her to be responsible.
some people of Morroco do not view Aicha as evil, some even call out to her for help some people say you can summon her by pouring boiling water down the sink drain Aicha will come and help them.
some people gather on every Thursday led by men to rivers where she is said to live and bring incense candles milk bread
La Llorona is a legendary ghost from Hispanic, Latino folklore, as well as central and northern American folklore, she is commonly heard and is commonly seen near rivers creeks oceans at night crying out Mi hijo, mi hijo to her drowned children she has been seen as flowing having black hair and wearing a white dress and a veil or a shawl and possess a natural beauty even as a spirit she.
in a rural village there once lived a young woman named Maria
Maria came from a poor family but was known in the village for her beauty and One day a wealthy nobleman traveled to her village and upon seeing maria had stopped in his tracks and Maria too was charmed by him as he was charmed by her beauty so he proposed to her and she had immediately accepted and maria’s family was thrilled that was marrying into a wealthy however
the noblemen’s father was not happy about the marriage and disappointed in his son for marrying into poverty maria and her new husband built a house in the village to be away from the disappointment of his father
and Eventually, Maria gave birth to twins a boy and girl her, new husband was always traveling and had stopped spending time with his family when her husband did come home he only paid attention to their children and not maria.
maria know that her husband was falling out of love with her one day he left the family and never returned until years later when maria and her children where walking by a river she saw a familiar carriage with a younger beautiful woman next to her husband the carried stoped he waved to his child but again had ignored maria
as the carriged left maria became so angery and confused without thinking she graped her two childern and drowned them in the river but came back too reality only after seeing her childern bodies flaoting in the river only then did she realize what she had done so out of pure sadness at what she had did she jumped into the river hoping too die and be with her childern
and when she arrived at the gates of heaven she asked the whereabouts of her childern she was not petmitted too enter the after life untill she found her childern
and so now she is curesed to forever wonder the land as Llorona, all eternity searching only in vain for her drowned children.
it is said that if she comes across any child alone at night, she will mistake them for her children and drown them, or if you hear the crying of Llorona you must run in the opposite way, for if you hear her cried they bring not only misfortune but death.
she is also some times seen in the depths of a river and is said that if others attempt to save her if she is seen in the depths of the water they will be drowned themselves
she has been also seent at the border into Texas, El Paso, Rio de Flag in the city of Flagstaff, and the San Pedro River near Tucson, and cemeteries.

one night when the little girl was lying in bed, unable to sleep, she heard some noises in the corridor outside her room. Being a very curious child, she slowly opened the door of her bedroom and looked out into the long, dark corridor.
At the end of the hallway, she could make out a small figure, crouching down. As her eyes adjusted to the darkness, she was surprised to see a young boy, the same age as herself. He was carrying a dim lighted candle in his hand and he was lifting one of the tiles on the tiled floor.
She watched, as the young boy took something out from his pocket and placed it beneath the tile. After he placed the tile back, the boy suddenly vanished into thin air.
The girl couldn’t believe what she was seeing, She looked back down the corridor and noticed that one of the maids had been peeking out of her own bedroom door and had witnessed the same scene.
The maid grabbed a candle and came hurrying over to the little girl, They both knew what they had seen. the little boy was a ghost.
Together they cautiously approached the area where the little boy had been crouching, They lifted the tile and discovered a large hole looking down at the hole with the dim light of the candle, they noticed something glistening.
The maid then put down the candle carefully beside the tile, she then held it open as she helped lower the little girl into the hole.
Once she reached the bottom, she observed her surroundings The child could not believe what she found It was a pile of gold coins.
Shaking with excitement, she gathered up the coins in one hand. Then, the maid grabbed her by her free hand and pulled her out of the hole. They placed the tile back and it fit perfectly, looking like it had never been touched.
The maid could hardly believe her luck and the child could barely contain her excitement., Both of them decided that they should keep the discovery of gold coins a secret The maid warned the little girl not to mention this to her parents or any of the other servants and maids.
The next night, at the same time, the girl and the maid were peeking out from their bedroom doors, eagerly waiting for the ghostly little boy to appeared They watched as the spectral figure made its way down the corridor, lifted a tile, and placed some gold coins into the hole.
After he disappeared, the maid helped lower the girl into the hole under the tile so that she could retrieve the gold coins.
Night after Night they repeated the same process, It seamed as if the treasure was endless Each time, the girl got down into the hole under the tile and gave the coins to the maid once picked back up, who would later put them into a bag.
One night, as the maid lowered the girl into the hole the candle light began to flicker The maid told the little girl to hurry up, She had to get out of the hole before the candle went out.
Once the little girl was ready, she pulled her out of the hole but at the last moment, a coin fell out from the little girl’s hand. Without thinking, the little girl jolted after the coin. The maid tried to catch her, but in doing so she let go of the tile and it slammed down.
The candle went out.
The air from the tile falling caused the candle to go out The maid began to panic In the darkness, she tried to make her way down the corridor to her bedroom to fetch another candle.
It was pitch black She couldn’t see a thing, She had to feel her way along the wall until she reached her bedroom. Searching desperately in the dark, she was unable to find a candle.
With a lot of difficulty, she made her way down the corridor into the kitchen She rummaged through the drawers and eventually came across another candle. She lit it and quickly returned to the corridor.
To her horror, she realized that she couldn’t remember which tile the child was under In the dim light she searched and searched, prying at each tile but the corridor was so long and wide with many tiles that she was unable to find the right one.
Finally she gave up and clutching the bag of gold coins, she went back to bed.

The father demolished walls and punched holes in ceilings all in effort to find out where the girl’s cries were coming from, After destroying the interior of the house the parents were forced to accept defeat.
For months they lived in the building, listening to the cries of their beloved daughter, unable to do anything to find her.

She comes to drivers whose vehicles mysteriously stop on the road at night presumably reliving her last moments on the road as she tried to help her dying husband. Legend also says, that the bride asks you for a ride and if you stop to look at her face she will morph into something terrifying and evil.

is a Mexican urban legend and is one of my favorites, it is about a boy with magic powers and is feared by everyone in his village.
it goes like this
in a rural area near Toledo, Mexico there was a small village where one of the most tales of terror ever told took place, this is the story of a child called Fedrico who lived in Mexico in the 19th century.
Federico was the seventh son in his family and was the seventh son of a seventh son. everybody in the village knows that this child was endowed with occult like powers, they say that he had the gift of second sight and was able to predict the future. He also had healing hands and was able to cure anyone of any ailment. The boy was quiet and shy, but all the other kids treated him like he was a monster and the villagers were terrified of him and refused to have anything to do with Federico.
one dark night the elders of the village got together and held a meeting, they discussed what should be done about the boy they decided that he was too dangerous and had to be gotten rid of so they made a plan to murder the boy and destroy his body because they believed this was the only way that they could protect the village.
the elders persuaded the boy to come with them and led him to an abandoned remote shack in the woods. When the boy’s back was turned the men pounced on him, bound him, in a satanic ritual, they stripped him of his clothing and hung him from the roof, and lowered the boy’s body in a vat of boiling oil while he was still alive and screaming in pain.
they gouged out his eyes and hacked his body to pieces, they put the chunks of the boy’s flesh and bone in a wooden barrel and dumped it into a river. The men then returned home that night feeling satisfied with their deeds unremorseful.
the next day when some villagers went to visit the house of one of the elders knocked on the door but got no reply, they then decided to enter the elder’s house, what they found inside almost made their blood freeze in their veins.
the old man lay dead on the ground his eyes were gouged out and was resting on his chest and his head had been crushed his hands, and feet had been chopped off, there was also a message written on the ground in his blood. It read “innocent blood had been spilled now the guilty must die.” after that, all of the elders who participated in the brutal murder of the boy begin turning up dead their bodies mutilated and dismembered the same as they had done to the boy Federico.
When the gruesome and bloody remains of the last man were discovered, the villagers found a message written in blood, it read “now I have been avenged. the guilty have paid their debt,”.
the 7th-barn is a Ohioan urban legend and it goes something like this
once there was a wealthy farmer who owned a lot of land in Ohio. He built a new barn on his property every time his wife had a baby and would name the barns after each of their children, he was expecting a seventh child however the farmer’s wife died in childbirth and so did their unborn child. The farmer overcame with grief at the loss, could no longer find the will to tend to the farm.
the family soon ran out of money and the farm started going under. One night in the depths of his madness and despair the farmer took an Axe and led all of his children out to the barns where he murdered them one by one. He then buried each of their bodies in the six barns that had been named after them. Then the farmer went to the 7th barn and hug himself eventually all of the barns were torn down and the land was sold off all except for the 7th barn as nobody wanted to buy the land because of what had happened there so it was abandoned and fell into disrepair and no one could find the seventh barn.
that is until 1997 when a local Ohioan teacher claimed that he had found the 7th barn. According to the teacher he said that none of the barns had ever actually been torn down the land there had just been divided up and sold off and the barns had simply been incorporated into neighboring farms he was able to pinpoint the correct location because of all of the barns of the neighboring properties had nameplates above their doors with the names of the children engraved on them. The teacher and his son set out the night to visit the barn bringing a video camera with them in the hopes of capturing some paranormal activity. The next morning the teacher’s wife reported that her husband and son was missing the police found their car abandoned by a roadside while searching the area they entered a barn in a nearby field, they found the dead bodies of the teacher and son hanging from the rafters.
they say that if you go to the barn at night, you can see the ghost of the farmer hanging from the rafters his body swaying back and forth in the wind.
they also say that the farmer is vengeful and if he catches you, he will kill you in the same way he killed himself.
good luck sleeping tonight 🙂
