In Surah al-Maidah (5:27), Allah, Al-Adl (The Just), earlier in this ayat (verse) relates the story of Prophet Adam’s, peace be upon him, sons, Habil (Abel) and Qabil (Cain), both of whom offered a sacrifice to their Creator, but their Lord only accepted Habil’s sacrifice. Habil offered his best lamb and Qabil offered the worst of his agricultural produce. A sacrifice must be something you love if you want to attain taqwa (consciousness of Allah, piousness). Allah only accepts from Al-Mutaqina (the God-Conscious, the Committed Believers), those who make sacrifices only to get closer to Allah, The Just. Thus, Habil was blessed because he was thankful and grateful to his Lord.
