Jesus vs Isaac - The Sacrifice  
Abraham sacrificed his son Isaac, and God sacrificed his son Jesus
Today, Christians claim that God told Abraham to kill his son Isaac because their actions are pointing ahead to the person of Christ in a typology of the true sacrifice. Christians draw a close parallel between the sacrifice of Isaac and the sacrifice of Jesus. With Abraham represented by God; Isaac represented by Jesus; the sacrifice of Jesus becomes typified in the sacrifice of Isaac thousands of years earlier.

Muslims believe Ishmael and not Isaac was taken by Abraham to be sacrificed as God had commanded him so.

Isaac Jesus
Only Begotten Son
And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

Hebrews 11:17

Isaac is the only son
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

John 3:18

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
1John 4:9

Genesis 24:2-4

Servant was to find Isaac a wife
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Ephesians 5:22-25

So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
Ephesians 5:28-32

The church was to Jesus, as a wife is to a husband
