Hibil Ziwa Angel
Hibil Ziwa is a uthra (angel or guardian) from the World of Light in Mandaeism. Hibil is considered the Mandaean counterpart to Abel.
In the Qolasta, the phrase “in the name of Hibil, itil, and Anu” frequently appears in prayers.
Abel is cognate with the angelic soteriological figure Hibil Ziwa, who is talked of as a son of Hayyi or Manda d-Hayyi, and as a brother of Anush (Enosh) and Sheetil (Seth), who is the son of Adam, according to Mandaean beliefs and scriptures such as the Qolast, the Book of John, and Genz Rabb.
Anush is referred to as the son of Sheetil, while Sheetil is referred to as the son of Hibil, who came to Adam and Eve as a young lad when they were still virgins and was referred to as their son. Hibil is a powerful being from the Light world who conquered the World of Darkness. He is known as Yawar Hibil, and he is one of several figures named Yawar after his father.
Hibil instructs the uthra Abatur in the Diwan Abatur to go to the border between the Worlds of Light and Darkness and weigh for purity those souls who have passed through all purgatory and seek to return to the light.
