Abraham's 2 sons -- Ishmael and Isaac

God had chosen ISAAC the firstborn son of Sarah to inherit the Everlasting Covenant of YHWH God. Hagar and her first son Ishmael were cast out by her master Abraham and mistress Sarah because Hagar was an arrogant slave after conceiving Ishmael and her son Ishmael was a wild man mocking ISAAC. They deserved to be cast out by God.

Hagar was like a property owned by Sarah and Ishmael was a slave by birth for the family of Abraham and his 1st wife Sarah. In a marriage, dowry would be given to the parents of the virgin girl. But Hagar was asked to sleep with Abraham for a son to Sarah and no dowry was given.

Do you call it marriage without dowry??? Look at the custom of Abraham and his son Isaac. When the servant of Abraham went back to his hometome to look for a virgin wife for Isaac,  dowry was given to Rebecca's father. But Hagar was not worth a penny which shows she was a slave indeed.

In the land of Canaan where Sarah and Hagar dwelt, the law says the son from the slave woman Hagar would be a slave to Sarah too. That was a condition set by Sarai for Hagar before she could sleep with Abram at his age of 85 years old in order to bear a son for her. Sarai herself was still childless at the age of 75 years.

Firstly the birth of Ishamel was NOT based on the promise of YHWH God as it was all planned out by Sarah and adopted by Abraham. Did Abraham sin against God for failing to seek prior approval pertaining to his taking Hagar as his concubine? YES Abraham had sinned because he obeyed Sarah instead of God. But God forgave Abraham because of His Covenant with him at his age of 75 years when he was asked by God to leave his hometown Ur of Chladees which he obeyed.

As the Torah of Moses did not exist at the time of Abraham around 2000 BC, none of the law of Moses shall apply.  Then the case was decided by the justice of YHWH God personally.

Secondly the "cast out" was a Hebrew idiom to mean Divorce or cut off the relationship. God approved Abraham to divorce Hagar because His plan of prophethood was given only to ISAAC and his seed.

That was 15 years later when Sarah was 90 years old and she had her own son ISAAC about 1 year old as he weaned. Sarah told Abraham to cut off the relationship with his slave 2nd wife Hagar and her slave boy Ishmael because she knew the law of Canaan would permit Ishmael to inherit the rights of the Everlasting Covenant of God and from the property of Abraham if they were not disowned by Abraham.

Under the Jewish culture, the 1st wife Sarah has no legal rights to expel the son of the slave woman and cut off the relationship with her. So Sarah insisted that Abraham should divorce Hagar and cut off the relationship with the slave woman's son Ishmael so that he would not co-inherit with Isaac and his seed.

21:10 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall Not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.
21:11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son.
21:12 And Elohim said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.
21:13 And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed.
21:14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-sheba.

Thirdly, Ishmael did not fulfill the prophecy of God as his son was not a prophet. Only Isaac and his son Jacob fulfilled the Torah in Genesis
-- 17:19 And Elohim said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his Seed After him.

Muhammad was not related to Ishmael in any way. The Quran never say Muhammad came from the bloodline of Ishmael. Yahushua came from ISAAC as the genealogy proves it explicitly.

As the birth of Ishmael was planned by Sarah, Islam was made by Muhammad himself not given by God.

Last but not least Muhammad never declare in the Quran that he was the grandson of the Hebrew Ishmael as he was a Hebrew by birth.

There is no hope in Islam as the Compass of Quran went in the wrong direction to Hell and not to Heaven. You got an illiterate man to teach you about your shaky hope in man-made religion. I rather trust in a book written during thousands of years by holy men -- over 40 prophets and apostles who were Hebrews and came from the promised seed of ISAAC.

The "compass" in Islam is faulty and lead Muslims in the wrong direction; they have gone astray from the truth. Just read about 2 sons Isaac and Jacob bestowed to Sarah and Abraham and then another verse in Quran says Jacob was his grandson. How about Esau grandson of Abraham; why his name was blotted out??? Why the names of Sarah and Hagar were blotted out from the Quran???

The book of Quran is corrupted and its doctrines or the "compass" was faulty which leads to no way. Imagine a faulty compass in an aircraft in the sky without auto pilot system. Do you get to the final destination on target??? Right you have to call for help from those on target on the ground. Why you keep asking those lost ones on the aircraft with you??? THINK about my analogy if it makes sense!

An illiterate man who had no lineage of prophet and priest after Ishmael is the least qualified man to teach about the Torah of Moses and the Gospel of Yahushua. As the Jews are the experts in the Torah and Gospel of Yahushua every one should read and learn from those 2 books in Hebrew or Aramaic.

Both the compass of the Hebrews and Christians point to Yahushua as the Messiah of the world -- for the Jews and the Gentiles. The Jews did not accept the Christian Bible but did not say it is corrupted. Only brainwashed men and women say the Christian Bible is wrong.
