Son of Hagar and son of Sarah, who was the promised Son?

Too bad your ''INTELLECT'' cannot go understand SPIRITUAL revelations of the LIVING Yahweh. His WAYS are far above human reasonings.
Yahweh has sent ISAAC, ''THE MIRACLE SON'' as a type of the MIRACLE SON of Yahweh, A SIGN to the faith of Abraham, and He, ABRAHAM rejoiced to see the seed of ISAAC; As Jesus Christ agrees;  Joh 8:56 "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad."
Abraham, the type and shadow of the sacrifice of His ONLY SON; Gen 22:8 And Abraham said, "My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering." So the two of them went together.

Ishmael was born of reasoning/ flesh... Isaac was born of FAITH;
Ga 4:21 ¶ Tell me, you [Muslim] who desire to be under the law, do you not hear the law?
For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman.
But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise,
which things are symbolic. For these are the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar--
for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children--
but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.
For it is written: "Rejoice, O barren, You who do not bear! Break forth and shout, You who are not in labor! For the desolate has many more children Than she who has a husband."

Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise.

But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now.
Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? "Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman."

So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free.
John 3:6 "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Yahweh's law is not flesh, His law is spiritual, Allah's law is fleshly, It does not give life.

Jesus said;  (John 6:63) "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
