The First Sacrifice

The 2 sons of Aadam (alaihis salaam) offered sacrifices. Qaabil offered crops and Haabil a sheep. The sheep was accepted. It is said that the same sheep was resurrected, brought up in Paradise and was eventually brought to earth by Jibraeel (alaihis salaam) to be sacrificed by Ibrahim (alaihis salaam) in place of his son.
