The word habal (𐤄𐤁𐤋) or “Abel” is associated with two meanings. The first meaning is that of “vain” which means excessively proud of or concerned about one’s own appearance, qualities, and achievements; conceited. The last association of the word is the second () of 𐤀𐤃𐤌 (Adam) and 𐤇𐤅𐤄 (Khauah) / 𐤇𐤉𐤄 (Khayah).

He is the younger () of 𐤒𐤉𐤍 (Qayan). His name has also been written as Habel in the modern Masoretic Hebrew or Yiddish translations. His name could also be interpreted as a combination of 𐤄 (Ha) and () meaning The or The Master or The Lord.

The Paleo-Hebrew language or the original language of the Ābarayam is one spoken with an emphasis on the rauakh (breath, wind, spirit). With the language of the Ābarayam, each letter has a meaning and a number associated with it that adds meaning to each word they’re used with.

In The Beginning

According to the fourth chapter of 𐤁𐤓𐤀𐤔𐤉𐤕 (BaRaashayat), 𐤒𐤉𐤍 (Qayan) and Habal are the first two () of 𐤀𐤃𐤌 (Adam) and 𐤇𐤅𐤄 (Khauah) / 𐤇𐤉𐤄 (Khayah). 𐤒𐤉𐤍 (Qayan), the () and his (), was a 𐤀𐤊𐤓 (akar), and he was a 𐤓𐤅𐤉 (rauay). The () made sacrifices to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (Yahauah) / 𐤉𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Yahayah), each of his own produce, but 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (Yahauah) / 𐤉𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Yahayah) approved of his sacrifice instead of 𐤒𐤉𐤍 (Qayan)’s sacrifice. His () then murdered him out of anger.

There are five prevalent interpretations for why his sacrifice was accepted over his brother. However, no real reason is provided by the scriptures and we can only test each interpretation for how likely they are. The five main interpretations are:

  1. The Pure of Heart
    𐤄𐤁𐤋 (Habal) made his offering to the Most High with a pure heart and thus his sacrifice was seen as pure. Compared to his () who made it begrudgingly and thus was not accepted. This stance is endorsed by the Christian Church to support the idea that as long as your heart is in the right place then you are fine. However, this could be likely for the reasoning of the offering acceptance based on other scriptures but it may not be the case since the intentions of the heart are not in reference to offerings in the scriptures.
  2. The First Fruits
    He made an offering of the first fruits [the () animals] compared to his () who kept his first fruits for himself and gave from the remaining. This is likely since there are further scriptures that talk about giving your first fruits as an offering.
  3. Meat vs Plants
    This theory claims that the Most High supports meat-eating and only wants to have meat sacrificed unto him. This would be why the animals of 𐤄𐤁𐤋 (Habal) were accepted but the crops of 𐤒𐤉𐤍 (Qayan) were not. However, this is unlikely since there are future scriptures that discuss and support the offering of crops to the Most High as well as scriptures where He says He’s tired of our meat offerings.
  4. The Serpent Seed
    That the two () were heteropaternal superfecundation twins and 𐤒𐤉𐤍 (Qayan) was born of the 𐤍𐤇𐤔‎ (nakhash) and 𐤄𐤁𐤋 (Habal) was born of 𐤀𐤃𐤌 (Adam). This is not impossible, however, it is highly unlikely since this would mean the fruits of the 𐤏𐤑 (āts) were sex but based on 𐤏𐤁𐤓𐤉 (Ābaray) scriptures the fruit of the 𐤏𐤑 (āts) 𐤃𐤏𐤕 (daāt) 𐤈𐤅𐤁 (thauab) 𐤓𐤏 (raā) is divination, enchantments, or witchcraft. Also, the Book of 𐤉𐤅𐤁𐤋 (Yauabal) says “And in the third week in the second jubilee she gave birth to Cain, and in the fourth she gave birth to Abel, and in the fifth she gave birth to her daughter Âwân. And in the first (year) of the third jubilee, *Cain slew Abel because (God) accepted the sacrifice of Abel, and did not accept the offering of Cain.” This places them more than nine months from the expulsion from the garden for birth to occur.
  5. The Sacrifice for Marriage
    That their () married him to his ()’s twin 𐤋𐤋𐤀𐤄 (Lalaah) and 𐤒𐤉𐤍 (Qayan) was married to 𐤄𐤁𐤋 (Habal)‘s twin 𐤏𐤑𐤓𐤄 (Ātsarah). 𐤒𐤉𐤍 (Qayan) preferred his own twin () but she was married to his (). Thus, their () told them to make a sacrifice to the Most High and the one who was approved would be married to her. The Most High chose to not have two twins married and approved of 𐤄𐤁𐤋 (Habal)‘s sacrifice. This is supported by the Forgotten Books Of Eden as well as Islamic and Rabbinic traditions but has no additional scriptures to support this theory.

Jewish and Christian Interpretations

According to the Coptic Book of 𐤀𐤃𐤌 (Adam) and 𐤇𐤅𐤄 (Khauah) / 𐤇𐤉𐤄 (Khayah), and the Syriac Cave of Treasures, his body, after many days of mourning,+ was placed in the Cave of Treasures, before which 𐤀𐤃𐤌 (Adam) and 𐤇𐤅𐤄 (Khauah) / 𐤇𐤉𐤄 (Khayah), and their descendants, offered their prayers. In addition, the 𐤔𐤕𐤉 (Shatay) line of the Generations of 𐤀𐤃𐤌 (Adam) swears by 𐤄𐤁𐤋 (Habal)‘s blood to segregate themselves from the unrighteous.

In the Book of 𐤇𐤍𐤅𐤊 (Khanauak), his soul is described as having been appointed as the chief of martyrs, crying for vengeance, for the destruction of the seed of 𐤒𐤉𐤍 (Qayan). This view is later repeated in the Testament of 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham), where 𐤄𐤁𐤋 (Habal) has been raised to the position as the judge of the souls.

Islamic Interpretations

According to Shi’a Muslim belief, “Abel” (“Habeel”) is buried in the Nabi Habeel Mosque, located in the west mountains of Damascus, near the Zabadani Valley, overlooking the villages of the Barada river (Wadi Barada), in Syria. Shi’a are frequent visitors of this mosque for ziyarat. The mosque was built by Ottoman Wali Ahmad Pasha in 1599.
