Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) reached the age of 85 and was childless. He couldn’t get his hopes up as his wife, Sarah, was in her mid-70s and barren. As Prophet Abraham was accepting his destiny of not becoming a father, God had another plan for him. In Genesis, God promised Abraham to multiply his seed.
But how could this Divine promise be fulfilled given the facts mentioned above? What does the name “Ishmael” mean? How is the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) the descendant of Prophet Abraham?
To get an answer for these questions and more, listen to Dr. Jamal Badawi’s 5-minute audio.
