Habil and Qabil

 

Adam had two sons
called Habil and Qabil.
Adam thought that
Habil, the younger son,
should take over after him.
But Qabil didn’t like this
idea and was very
jealous.

To settle the argument
Adam thought of an idea.
He told his sons to think
of a present to give to
Allah and to leave it
on top of a certain hill.

The one whose
present Allah accepted,
would win the
argument.

Allah chose Habil’s
present because Habil
had taken a lot
of time and trouble
to choose his present.

One day, all of a sudden,
the sky went very dark
and it started to rain.
Lightly at first, then
more and more heavily. Soon
there was water everywhere.
The bad people were not
laughing any more. They
were frightened because
they had no shelter
from the water.

 

Only the good people
in the ark were
safe and dry.
