Rolling in Bahnasa

From the album Modern Miracles

Every Friday a large number of people visit the Seven Daughters Shrine in Bahnasa for blessings. The location is well known for help in healing back pain, getting pregnant, or finding work. The land is holy because there are many companions of The Prophet and mujahid killed and buried nearby. At the shrines of Seven Daughters, it is said that they were Coptic girls who helped to provide food and supplies to the army of Islam during the siege of the city. The girls were eventually killed by their own people when they tried to run away.
