Blessings of Ishmael And Isaac:

Abraham is widely regarded as the Patriarch of monotheism and the common father of the Jews, Christians and Muslims. Through His second son, Isaac, came all Israelite prophets including such towering figures as Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Solomon and Jesus. May peace and blessings be upon them all. The advent of these great prophets was in partial fulfillment of God’s promises to bless the nations of earth through the descendants of Abraham (Genesis 12:2-3).1 Such fulfillment is wholeheartedly accepted by Muslims whose faith considers the belief in and respect of all prophets an article of faith.

Was the first born son of Abraham (Ishmael) and his descendants included in God’s covenant and promise? A few verses from the Bible may help shed some light on this question:

1) Genesis 12:2-3 speaks of God’s promise to Abraham and his descendants before any child was born to him.

2) Genesis 17:4 reiterates God’s promise after the birth of Ishmael and before the birth of Isaac.

3) In Genesis, ch. 21, Isaac is specifically blessed, but Ishmael was also specifically blessed and promised by God to become “a great nation,” especially in Genesis 21:13, 18.

4) According to Deuteronomy 21:15-17, the traditional rights and privileges of the first born son are not to be affected by the social status of his mother (being a free woman such as Sarah, Isaac’s mother, or a “maidservant” as Hagar, Ishmael’s mother). This is only consistent with the moral and humanitarian principles of all revealed faiths.

5) The full legitimacy of Ishmael as Abraham’s son and “offspring” and the full legitimacy of his mother, Hagar, as Abraham’s wife, are clearly stated in Genesis 21:13 and 16:3.

After Jesus, the last Israelite messenger and prophet, it was time that God’s promise to bless Ishmael and his descendants be fulfilled. Less than 600 years after Jesus, came the last messenger of God, Muhammad , from the progeny of Abraham through Ishmael. God’s blessings for both of the main branches of Abraham’s family tree were now fulfilled.

Of Ishmeal who Mohammad cannot trace
his line to.
Genesis 16:12
He will be a wild donkey of a man;
his hand will be against everyone
and everyone's hand against him,
and he will live in hostility
toward [b] all his brothers."

This just shows alteration in Bible.

As if you know what was the original .
Science proves the scriptures before during and after mohammads time are essentially the same all conveying the same message.

Too bad you missed the boat.

jesus,moses and muhammed
3 prophets 1 mission
jesus was not god he was only prophet ,if he was son of god so son of god became god also.
so how god can be 2 if there is only one.
islam only worship creator(ALLAH) not creation(jesus) there are 100000 people bowing towdards ALLAH and us and america is becoming muslim nation because islam is growing too fast ....
and yesterday i converted my hindu frnd.
and we muslim respect all prophets more than u christians .we use HAZRAT before each prophet name including jesus.HAZRAT is very respective word which especially use for only prophets and auliya.
dont hate muhammed bcoz search old bible in which jesus predicted about muhammed coming.
christianity is older than islam
judaism is older too
and hinduism too oldest
it doesnt mean it is true...
islam was final decision.
AND LISTEN A TRUTH I AM CONVERTED CHRISTIIAN SECRETLY.......
JESUS WAS MUSLIM and christianity is came from the name CHRIST.
