family abode

There’s no denying that the backstories to most haunted houses that are set up for Halloween are completely fabricated. However, one that has truth behind it, is Frightmare Manor, located in Talbot, Tennessee. The plantation once belonged to Jeremiah Lexer. That was until 1902, when he slaughtered his entire family inside the abode. He brutally hacked his wife, son, daughter-in-law, and his three grandchildren that were aged four, eight, and twelve, to death before taking his own life. When authorities arrived at the house, they were more than shocked to not only find the bodies of the Lexer family, but 30 other shallow graves. As it so turned out, the mass murder of his own family wasn’t the only murders he had committed. Over a number of years, Jeremiah had been killing unsuspecting citizens and burying them around his house. Unsurprisingly, after this discovery, the plantation sat untouched. Nobody wanted to live in a house that was marred with such tragedy. It was finally purchased in 2009, and turned into a haunted house.

Du'a for deceased - Muhammad Ali

With the passing of Muhammad Ali, let’s not forget to make du'a for him - saying “RIP” isn’t a du'a!

اَللّٰھُمَّ اغْفِرْلَهُ وَ ارْحَمْهُ وَ عَافِهِ وَ اعْفُ عَنْهُ وَ اَکْرِمْ نُزُلَهُ وَ وَسِّعْ مُدْخَلَهُ وَ اغْسِلْهُ بِالْمَاءِ وَ الثَّلْجِ وَ الْبَرَدِ وَ نَقِّهِ مِنَ الْخَطَایَا کَمَا نَقَّیْتَ الثَّوْبَ الْاَبْیَضَ مِنَ الدَّنَسِ وَ اَبْدِلْهُ دَارًا خَیْرًا مِّنْ دَارِهِ وَ اَھْلًا خَیْرًا مِّنْ اَھْلِهِ وَ زَوْجًا خَیْرًا مِنْ زَوْجِهِ وَ اَدْخِلْهُ الْجَنَّةَ وَ اَعِذْهُ مِنْ عَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ وَ مِنْ عَذَابِ النَّارِ۔

O Allah, forgive him and have mercy on him and grant him peace and pardon him. Receive him with honour and make his place of entry (in grave) spacious. Wash him with water, snow, and ice and cleanse him of his faults like a white garment is cleansed of stains. O Allah, substitute for him an abode better than his abode, a family better than his family and a spouse better than his spouse. Admit him into Paradise and protect him from the torment of the grave and the torment of the Fire۔
