Mythic Creatures That Never Existed But People Believed In Anyway
The ghoul is one of the most well known creatures in Arabian folklore and we were introduced to it in the collection of tales, One Thousand and One Nights.

This is probably the main reason why the word ghoul is associated in Arabic countries with anything macabre and they often use the word when referring to a gravedigger or any profession directly related to death.
