Why pray to the Ibeyis?

Praying to the Jimaguas is essential for practitioners of Santeria, since, by invoking them, their help is highly effective. This is due to the belief that for the Ibeyis there is no obstacle that can cause fear, in fact, it is estimated that their daring and strength is such that they were even able to defeat the devil himself. We can verify this through the following documented story in the Odu of Ifa: Otura Di:

Pataki: The Jimaguas defeated the Devil.

It happened that among the roads to leave a distant town, in the middle of one of its crosses, the devil used to be found. There, he had placed a trap where everyone who passed by fell into a hole and he ate them. For that reason, the town was very disturbed, people disappeared when moving from one place to another.

The jimaguas that lived in that town, despite being still small, were always playing a little drum and through their touch they called each other. One day, they decided to go out on the roads of the town. Upon reaching the crossroads where people got lost, one hid and the other kept walking until he met the devil, who, seeing him so small, told him to go to his house because he couldn't go that way. But, the jimagua insisted on doing it, so the devil told him: in order to pass you will have to lend me your drum. The jimagua answered yes, challenging him to play better than him.

They did so until only the Jimagua touched and the devil began to dance. The brothers exchanged themselves over and over again without the devil noticing, until reaching a point where he was very tired and could not dance anymore. It was then that the devil offered to grant him whatever he wanted, on the condition that he stop playing. Opportunity that he took advantage of the jimagua to ask him to remove the trap from the road, and thus avoid more losses, his request being granted. Since then, the villagers have been able to cross the road without any problem.

This story shows us that the Ibeyis do not stop in the face of any adversity and with great cunning they solve any setback that may come their way, in the same way, they help and benefit their devotees.
