Fur­ther Com­ments On : Ish­mael Is Not The Father of Muham­mad Revisited

This is a short response to the mis­sion­ary’s Ish­mael Is Not the Father Of Muham­mad’ Revis­it­ed. The basic premis­es of this trav­es­ty of the mis­sion­ary claim has already been addressed in our orig­i­nal response. The read­er is invit­ed to read that response before delv­ing deep­er into the issue.

In this lat­est hilar­i­ty of their attempts to sev­er” any genealog­i­cal bond between the Prophet Ish­mael (P) and his descen­dant, Muham­mad (P), this mis­sion­ary has depend­ed upon the so-called con­tra­dic­tion” between the works of Ibn Kathir, Ibn Sa’ad and at-Tabari. Of course, it needs to be informed that a Mus­lim would nev­er regard the works of these authors as tru­ly infal­li­ble. This obses­sion with the need for accu­rate data”, as the mis­sion­ary is clear­ly dis­eased with, is hard­ly a mat­ter of con­cern — much less a fun­da­men­tal doc­trine — for Muslims.

The mis­sion­ary Sam Shamoun should be much more con­cerned with the genealog­i­cal dif­fi­cul­ties that are found with­in the Bible1, a text which the mis­sion­ary him­self adhere and revere as the Word of God”.2

father of the arabs

As we have shown in our pre­vi­ous arti­cle, there is no doubt that the Arabs even before Muham­mad (P) have always regard­ed them­selves as the descen­dants of Ish­mael (P). This tra­di­tion­al belief is also fur­ther rein­forced by a genet­ic study recent­ly con­duct­ed, in which it is ascer­tained that both Jews and Arabs share the same hered­i­tary genes.

In the end, the only cor­rect con­clu­sion that can be sur­mised from the evi­dences shown is that :

…both Arabs and Jews owe their genes to a com­mon ances­tor pop­u­la­tion that pre­dat­ed the Jew­ish reli­gion.“3
