Stories of Prophets: Jacob & 12 Children - Shady Al-Suleiman
The story of Isaac tells the story of one of Abraham and Sarah. Abraham taught submission to his children and his children to their children. Allah is giving Muhammad, peace be upon him, an answer to the Jews and Christians by telling them that the Muslims are the ones who carry the tradition of truth and belief in One God.
The Abraham had two sons-Prophet Isma’il and Isaac. Isaac was his second son born of Sarah, his wife. When the Abraham passed through an ordeal of sacrificing his affectionate son, Prophet Isma’il a glad-tidings of the birth of another son, Isaac was conveyed to him. The Holy Quran says:
“And We gave him the tiding of the birth of Isaac, a prophet among the righteous.”[37: 112]
The Abraham had attained the age of one hundred years and Sarah was ninety. They had practically lost all hope of having an issue at this advanced age when the angel came to Abraham with the happy news of the birth of a wise son, his wife laughed and did not believe it. She remarked that she had passed the age and now it was simply a folly to expect a child.
The Quran tells us how this news was imparted to the Abraham and his wife:
“And his wife standing by, laughed when We gave her good tidings (of the birth) of Isaac and after Isaac of Jacob. She said: Oh, Woe is me! Shall I bear a child when I am an old woman and this my husband is an old man? Lo! this is a strange thing. They said: wonder thou at the Commandment of Allah ? The mercy of Allah and His blessings be upon you, 0′ people of the House! Lo! He is Owner of Praise, Owner of Glory.” (11: 71-73)
Isaac was born as God willed. He was the chosen servant of God and his descendants were men of high spiritual rank and character. He was inspired to do noble
The Quran does not give details of Isaac’s life , but reliable Quranic commentators mentioned that when Abraham felt that his life was drawing to a close, he wished to see Isaac married. He did not want Isaac to marry one of the Canaanites, who were pagans, so he sent a trustworth servant to Haran in Iraq to choose a bride for Isaac. The servant’s choice fell upon Rebekah Bint Bethuel, Ibn Nahor (who was a brother of Abraham). Isaac married her and she gave birth to a set of twins, Esau (Al Eis) and Jacob (Yaqub).
Ill feelings developed between the two brothers when they grew into manhood. Esau disliked the fact that Jacob was favoured by his father and by Allah with prophethood. This ill feeling became so searious that Esau threatened to kill his brother. Fearing for his life, Jacob fled the country.
The People of the Book said that when Isaac was forty years old, he married Rebekah Bint Bethuel, during his father’s life. They said she was sterile, so Isaac prayed to Allah and then she became pregnant. She gave birth to twin boys. The first one was called Esau whom the Arabs called Al-Eis. He became the father of Rum. The second one was called Jacob, which means Isreal, (belonging to the people of Israel).
Jacob came to his father Isaac and settled with him in the village of Hebron which lies in the land of Canaan where Abraham had lived. Then Isaac fell ill and died when he was one hundred eighty years old. His sons Esau and Jacob buried him with his father Abraham Al Khalil in a cave which he had bought. It was said that Abraham died at the age of one hundred seventy five.
