Creepy Origins of Dhivehi Haru Bas

"Nuroa dhariyakah kireh nulibeyné." said Fathumaidhy to her mute baby.
As Alifulhu gasped for air, Salaanjahaa Kanukoi whispered in to his ears "Fethunu odygé riyaa dhashu viyas, Kanaku aiy dhashu nuvaashey"
"Valhi reethy thila thooniyyaa" Andhiri Andhirin praised the blade that slew Ali Rasgéfaan.
"Veheythaa Fennagaashey.. or it gets the hose again!"
"Hello Clarice. Ama buneethy farahtha thi dhany?"
"Hiyanyah mudi negiyas keeh kuraany" said the shadow Jinn as it proceeded to devour Ahammadu in front of his family.

*Postscript; These are not the actual origins of the harubas/proverbs, they have been placed in certain scenarios for dramatic effect. Although most of the Dhivehi proverbs are really creepy on their own. You can find more Dhivehi harubas and their meanings from MAFS
