[Maidah 5:24] They said, “O Moosa! We will never enter it whilst they are there, so you and your Lord go and fight - we shall remain seated here.”
[Maidah 5:25] Said Moosa, “My Lord! I have no control except over myself and my brother, so keep us separated from the disobedient nation.” (Do not count us among them).
[Maidah 5:26] Said Allah, “The (holy) land is therefore forbidden for them for forty years; they will wander in the earth; so do not grieve for these disobedient people.”
[Maidah 5:27] And recite to them the true tale of the two sons of Adam; when both of them offered a sacrifice each - hence the sacrifice of one was accepted and not accepted from the other; he (the other) said, “I swear I will kill you”; he answered, “Allah accepts only from the pious.”
[Maidah 5:28] “Indeed, if you do extend your hand against me to kill me, I will not extend my hand against you to kill you; I fear Allah, the Lord Of The Creation.”
[Maidah 5:29] “I only desire that you alone should bear my sin and your own sin - hence you become of the people of hell; and that is the proper punishment of the unjust.”
[Maidah 5:30] So his soul incited him to kill his brother - he therefore killed him, and was therefore ruined.
[Maidah 5:31] So Allah sent a crow scratching the ground,
to show him how to hide his brother’s corpse; he said, “Woe to me! I was
not even capable enough to be like this crow, so I would hide my brother’s
corpse”; and he turned remorseful.
