    I heard the story of Aw Barkadle, he was the forefather of the Yibir clan. My grandmother told me the story and she said when Sh Ishxaaq arrived in Somaliland he challenged Aw Barkadle to prove his magic was greater than the power of Allah swt and he lost. He perished. Some say he just disappeared and did not die and that Yibir don't die they simply disappear. Now every time a son is born one must pay Yibir blood money for the death of Aw Barkadle their son may die or get some kind of defect. Yibir then give the son an amulet to protect the child from the evil eye. Although Somalis are Muslims they clearly retained their superstitious practices.

    I didn't know the whole story but i heard the Yibir collecting their fees "Samaayo" because of some curse!

    Do they still collect?:cosbyhmm:

    Although I'm not sure Aw Barkadle was Yibir, why would they call him the saint if he practiced some sort of sorcery?

    He was allegedly a soothsayer and Yibir speak a secret language. They sound like fables who knows how true this is. I've heard people still pay offerings.

    Lol what's with this woman pushing this phallic narrative? They are just regular gravestones.

    You're confusing Aw Barkhadle with Bucur Bucayr, the ancestors of Yibir.

    Aw Barkhadle arrived in Hargeisa where he killed Bucur Bucayr and brought Islam to the region. He's considered a saint and people visit his grave regularly.

    Lol, stop hating. You should be happy that we have Islam. Ethiopia would have probably consumed us by now and made us convert to Roman Catholicism.

    I asked around and found out he was a local sxb! Yeaa he was the one who killed Bucur bucayr but one thing I don't understand is that if this incident happened somewhere in the north why did Somalis even from south used to compensate the Yibir tribe? Could it mean all Somali tribes settled in the north sometime back? :hmm:

    Yeah it's well known Somalis originated in the north. They came to the south and replaced the Oromos that lived there.

    :bell: Disappointing. Arabs are here to stay. Even your great-great-great grandfather could have been an Arab, you never know.

    Yes our ancestors accepted Islam willingly. Btw just to let you know, the habesha practice orthodox Christianity which in some aspects is similar to Islam cause they follow the old testament.

    Some scholars believe Somalis originated from the Abysinnian highlands and moved southwards to expand.
