SHAFAQNA – Sheth (Gift of Allah) was the executor of Adam’s will, who was born five years after Abel was killed by Cain:235 years after the fall of Adam. He was the offspring of Adam from his issue and Jafeth (Yefith) who were brethren. Thursday afternoon, God Almighty sent a Houri for Sheth and the next day another Houri for Jafeth. When those Houris married Sheth and Jafeth, a son from the former and a daughter from the latter were born. These two cousins — Sheth’s son and Jafeth’s daughter — got married later on and thus Adam’s generation multiplied.
According to Nasekh At-Tawarikh, the marriage between brother and sister is completely rejected.
Sheth was residing in Mecca where he constantly performed major and minor Hajj. He founded Ka’aba with mud and stone. Getting sick, Sheth appointed his son, Anoosh as executor of his will and eventually passed away at the age of 912 and was buried alongside his parents in the Cave of Abo-Ghabais.
