The descendants of Abraham and Hagar's child, Ishmael (had 12 sons - see Genesis 25:13-15 for names) grew to become many different people who lived and travelled along the ancient spice route between Gilead and Egypt (Genesis 37:25-28; Judges 8:24). See related link below for more details:
More succinctly, Ishmael's descendants "ARE" the "arab" people, today. It's their relationship to Abraham, their father, that has pitted them against the descendants of Isaac, their father's other son born to his wife, Sarah.
The bitterness and strife that this situation created between their father's wife, Sarah, and Hagar, Ishmael's mother and Sarah's servant... has followed and haunted the descendants of these "half-brothers" all down through the course of history. And it's this that is at the root and the source of the "Arab/Israeli" conflict to this day.
"Then Sarai said to Abram, 'IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT! Now this servant of mine is pregnant, and she despises me, though I myself gave her the privilege of sleeping with you. The LORD will make you pay for doing this to me!'
"Abram replied, 'Since she is your servant, you may deal with her as you see fit.' So Sarai treated her harshly, and Hagar ran away." (Gen.16:5-6 NLT New Living Translation)
God's Word even offers a general prophetic description of Ismael's children:
"This son [Ishmael] of yours [Hagar] will be A WILD ONE - free and untamed as a wild donkey! HE WILL BE AGAINST EVERYONE, and everyone will be against him. Yes, he will live AT ODDS WITH THE REST OF HIS BROTHERS. (verse 12)
And this is the source of the unsolvable and ongoing "religious conflict" that exists between Ishmael's and Isaac's descendants today [continuously "at odds" with each other] -- God's promises to their "common father" -- and the argument over whose promises they are.
"...Abraham said to God, 'Yes, may Ishmael enjoy your special blessing!' But God replied, 'Sarah, your wife, will bear you a son. You will name him Isaac, and I will confirm My Everlasting Covenant WITH HIM and his descendants.
"As for Ishmael, I will bless him also, just as you have asked. I will cause him to multiply and become a great nation... But My Covenant is with Isaac..." (Gen.17:18-21 NLT)
Ishmael's descendants have vehemently refused to accept God's decision on this matter. Little wonder, then, that they are "at continuous odds" with all men.
Prophet Abraham (PBUH) has two sons; prophets Isaac and Ismael (Peace be upon them). From prophet Isaac the descendants Jacob then Joseph and Jesus and others (Peace be upon them). From Ismael (or Ishmael) are the descendants ending with prophet Muhammad (PBUH).Answer:From Abraham's son Isaac, his descendants are Jews & Edomites.From Abraham's son Ishmael, his descendants are Arabs.From Abraham's sons whom he had with his second wife, Keturah, his descendants are the Baha'is.
First you may need to explain how do you define an Arab. But generally speaking, Abraham had two sons Ishmael and Isaac. Arabs are the descendants of Ishmael Jews the descendants of Isaac and we can read from the Chapter one in the Gospel of Matthew that Jesus comes from the line of Isaac, not of Ishmael and is therefore a Jew, not Arab.
Ishmael is the legendary first son of Abraham, and in Jewish belief the ancestor of all Arabs. There is no evidence that the Arabs believed they were descended from Ishmael prior to the advent of Islam. Islam taught the Arabs to accept as true much of what is in the Old Testament, so from this time forward, many Arabs have believed that at least one tribe really was descended from Ishmael, including the Prophet Muhammad.A:Historians say that Ishmael was not a real, historical person, but the Bible says that his descendants were the Ishmaelites, the Arabs. This is a tradition that Islam has also accepted.According to the Bible, Abraham had a son by Hagar, called Ishmael, who would be the father of a nation. Judaic tradition is that the sons of Ishmael, called Ishmaelites, are the Arabs. Since before the time of Muhammad (c 570-632 CE), the Arabs themselves had begun to accept that they really are descended from Ishmael.
The Palestinians are descendants of Ishmael, (the son of Hagar & Abram). Being that God had promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations, God had to keep his covenant by blessing Abraham's seed (Ishmael) though he was not the son promised to Sarah & Abraham. So God promised he would bless Ishmael making him a great nation. (Gen 17: 25 & Gen 25: 12-18). His descendants are considered to be the Arabic People.
A:According to the Bible, Abraham's son Ishmael was the biological forefather of all the Arabs. This is a tradition that is also accepted by the Islamic faith, although there is no evidence that pre-Islamic Arabs thought they were descended from Ishmael. Arabs now exist throughout the Middle East and right across northern Africa. Historians regard Ishmael as not really historical, and say that the Arabs existed long before the time attributed to him.
The name "Ishmael" (or a form of it, such as "Ishmaelites"), appears 47 times in the KJV, all in the Old Testament. About half of the references are to the son of Abraham and Hagar or to his descendants; the rest apply to several other men who bore the name.Also mentioned are an Ishmael the son of Nethaniah (2 Kings 25:23), an Ishmael the son of Azel (1 Chronicles 9:44), an Ishmael the son of Jehohanan (2 Chron. 23:1), and an Ishmael the son of Pashur (Ezra 10:22). [Scripture references are examples, not necessarily "only mentions."]
A:In the Book of Genesis, Ishmael was the eldest son of the patriarch Abraham, and half-brother to Isaac. According to this tradition, Ishmael was the father of the 'Ishmaelites', or Arabs. Islam has accepted this view, although there is no evidence that the pre-Islamic Arabs saw themselves as descended from Ishmael or Abraham. An early Jewish view of the supposed descendants of Ishmael is shown in Midrash Esther Rabbah: "Of ten portions of stupidity in the world, nine were given to the Ishmaelites and one to the rest of the world. In the same manner, nine portions of robustness were allocated to the Ishmaelites and one to the rest of the world."
If you are talking about the actual religion, then they are connected by the fact that both religions believe in only one God. They are also connected because they both believe in an after life. However, if you are talking about roots and beginnings, then they are connected by the fact that Abraham had two sons, Ishmael and Isaac. The Jews are a descendant of Isaac and the Arabs are descendants of Ishmael which eventually led to the two religions. The argument is who was the chosen son (that started the chosen people of God) Ishmael or Isaac. (Ishmael is older than Isaac)
Jews see Ishmael as a recipient of the covenant with Abraham, that he would be the father of a nation and agree with the Muslims that that nation was the Arabs. However, Ishmael did not receive the more important covenant, the ability to continue the tradition of the Hebrew religion and the Right to the Land of Israel, which belonged to Isaac. Ishmael as an individual was viewed as a friend to Isaac, but the prophecy in Genesis 16:12 holds that the descendants of Ishmael would have conflict with the rest of the world. Genesis 16:12 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 all his brothers."
The Bible traces the blessings of God to Abraham through "Isaac"... not "Ishmael." The Ishmaelites were slighted, as it were, being the actual "firstborn" of Abraham... yet, "cast out" as they were. It's their contention, therefore, that God's blessings belong to the descendants of Ishmael... not Isaac. This is the cause of the festering animosity of Arabs toward Israel, today. The Bible, therefore, isn't beneficial to their connection to the blessings of God. Its bias is definitely in Israel's favor... so the latter writings of the Q'ran became the word of God to the descendants of Ishmael, and the Bible became the "erroneous writings" of the Jews, which they feel the Q'ran has corrected in their eyes.
