All men on earth were good, had the same chances, succeeded in the same undertakings. Why did they become different?
I am going to explain to you the origin of qualities in men. Once upon a time, there was a marabout who had a pretty daughter to whom he gave the first name fatima. Fatima inflamed the hearts of all the singles in our region with her beauty and charm. All the boys of marriageable age were competing for her hand. The Fulani frequently brought milk and calves to the father.
The bambaras came to cultivate his field and gave him part of their harvest. The maninka offered him captives and the julas many cowries. The marabout was therefore very spoiled thanks to the beauty and charm of his daughter. He then fell into the vice of the easy. The four Bambara, Fulani, Jula and Maninka tribes each sent their delegation with the necessary to ask for the hand of Fatima from her father, the marabout. He accepted the proposals of the four delegations, each promising his daughter's hand. Astonished by the attitude of the marabout, the members of the four delegations began to redouble their talents to snatch the offer. At their request, the marabout announced his daughter's wedding. They were getting more and more worried as the deadlines approached. On the eve of the wedding, God sent him an angel as he increased the number of requests and stayed late on his prayer mat. He explained his anxieties to the angel who reported them to God. He was a great marabout, respected and feared throughout the country. His prayers were answered.
