The sacrifice of an animal by Abel was the first sacrifice traced in the history of Islam. Abel and Cain were the firstborn sons of Adam and Eve. To resolve the difference between them, Adam asked his sons to make sacrifices in the name of Allah. An influential Muslim historian narrates the story of Abel (Habil) who sacrificed his sheep, and Cain (Qabil) who offered a part of the crops from his land. The procedure ordained by the god was that a fire would plunge from the heavens and annihilate the accepted sacrifice. Then, the fire came down and accepted the sacrifice of Abel by wrapping the animal butchered by him in the fire. Cain’s sacrifice was not accepted by the almighty, resulting in the first human death in the history of Islam, when he murdered his brother because of jealously. After not seeking remorse for his actions, Cain was not forgiven by god.
The story tells us that sincerity and intention are the two most important aspects of Qurbani in Islam.
(Quran 5:27 – And recite to them the story of Adam’s two sons, in truth, when they both offered a sacrifice [to Allah ], and it was accepted from one of them but was not accepted from the other. Said [the latter], “I will surely kill you.” Said [the former], “Indeed, Allah only accepts from the righteous [who fear Him]).
