Asalaam Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatu,
I pray you and your loved ones are well and in a Place Most Pleasing to Allah swt, InshaAllah,Mola Ali Waaris
I always think of Umar l.a when I think of Cain l.a
Remember Door # 23 from The Secret Manuscript of Imam Jafar Sadiq a.s...
That beautiful Manuscript of our beautiful Master Jafar Sadiq a.s
"Verily Ali a.s was oppressed six times and in six times with what they thought it was said for six times with what he resembled over them and he has one killing left and he has one last oppression left to endure in resemblance to affirm the Proof upon the Enemies and Allah would never kill His Preferred ones.
Did you not hear Allah's words in the story of Jesus?
"That they said (in boast) We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Apostle of Allah but they killed him not nor crucified him but it was made to appear to them as such" - The Holy Qur'an 4:157
Mufaddel asked "What was the reason of his killing the first time?"
Imam Al Sadiq replied "The reason for the first time was Cain and Abel, for Abel in those times was the Prince of the Believers and Cain was Zafir and the Satan of Satans"
"And Cain came to Abel and said 'Marry me your daughter' but Abel refused to marry her to him"
"And it was then that Cain said 'By Allah I will kill you if you do not marry her to me' "
"So when he threatened to kill him, Abel married Cain the Daughter of Iblis (Satan) Gurayra, and Qabil thought she was the Daughter of Abel"
"And Allah is Greater and more Honorable than to do that with one of His Preffered ones, but He does that in the Apparent making it look so, so as to affirm the proof upon the Enemies"
"And the meaning is as I have told, and it continued as such with them for six times"
Then it goes on to say how then after that when Umar l.a asked for the hand in marriage of Umme Kulthum a.s, our Master Ali a.s sent a book through Salman Muhammadi pbuh to Umar l.a which had a picture of Cain and Abel... Abel meaning Imam Ali a.s and Cain l.a meaning Umar l.a....to which Umar l.a knew what it meant...then the same happened.
La Howla Wala Quwata illah billahil Aliyyul Azeem
And here I quote a beautiful from my Imam Ahmed al Hassan a.s...
"...But I will never compromise,never bargain, never stop confronting Othman and exposing him publicly. ..."
So yeah, when I think of Cain l.a, I think of Umar l.a
Mola Ali Waaris
Fi Aman Allah

How I wonder at a man who loses hope of salvation when the door of repentance is open. Imam Ali
Endurance is of two kinds; when you endure unpleasant things coming to you, and when you bear refusal of things pleasing you. Imam Ali
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. Rumi
