ABRAHAM AND SARAH WERE NOT PATIENT ENOUGH By Ma’rufah O. Olaitan

February 12, 2019 Comparative Religion Rebuttals 0

After listening to the news update at Channels television today, I was reluctant to turn the TV to another channel, even despite it’s Pastor Femi KICC period. I was however not concentrating henceforth, but rather playing with my phone and glancing at a time to the news Headlines at the bottom-side of the channel.

Suddenly, the Pastor said something that caught my attention and my mouth was agape! It was “Abraham and Sarah were not patient with God, so God gave them a raucous, unruly, wild son _Ishmael_ , who as a result, is still the cause of harm, catastrophe on the surface of the earth till date.”

SubhanAllah!!! I thought to myself, how could a pastor stoop so low, all in the name of vilifying and badmouthing a religion, besmirched God to be a devil (Èsù) whom some individuals turn to as a result of hastiness in materialism, and he (the Èsù) gave them things, sons or daughters that serve as a regret to their entire life. AstaghfirLlah!! Just Imagine!!!

So, as Pastor Femi KICC understands his Bible, God still betrays the one He claim He Love, His intimate, most beloved Friend right?

Anyway, let me help him with my Qur’an.

“Verily, Ibrahim (Abraham) was, without doubt, forbearing (enduring, patient), used to invoking Allah with humility, …”

Surah Hud, 11 vs 75.

So you see, even God Himself testify on Abraham’s patience!!! Thus, I don’t know where Pastor Femi KICC sees in his own Bible about Father Abraham’s impatience.

Meanwhile, I know what’s wrong with our Dear Pastor. As someone has rightly said: A quick way to earn fame or money these days is to come up with absurd and wild conspiracy theories; the bigger they are, the better they provide an earning.

The truth is that Our Dear Pastor, because of his bias interest, was able to established the lineage of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) _for Islam_ to that of Ismail (Ishmael), and he was right.

“Wathila b. al-Asqa’ reported that he heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: Verily Allah granted eminence to Kinana from amongst the descendants of Isma’il (Ishmael), and he granted eminence to the Quraish amongst Kinana, and he granted eminence to Banu Hashim amonsgst the Quraish, and he granted me eminence from the tribe of Banu Hashim.”

Sahih Muslim, book 43, Hadith 1.

Hence the above Hadith evidently established the lineage of our beloved Prophet Muhammad to Prophet Ishmael.

Therefore, deliberately the Pastor was indirectly linking the begotten son of Father Abraham, which he termed _wild son_ to Islam, so as to _label or tag_ the religion, because of the course of the belly!

However, our Dear Pastor has forgotten that God did bless Ishmael as derive from the biblical verse. To start with, the meaning of the name “Ishmael” completely destroys our Pastor’s claim. The name “Ishmael” means “God hears”. God blessed Abraham with Ishmael when He answered/heard his prayer. So, God did answered Abraham’s prayer and not that he was not patient enough.

We read of a conversation between Hagar, the mother of Ishmael and an angel of the Lord in Genesis chapter 16. After Hagar conceived, Sarah couldn’t take it as she kept treating her hardly as we read in Genesis 16:6.

Hagar couldn’t take the pains anymore, she then ran away. According to the bible, God sent His angel to Hagar to console her, he met her near a fountain of water in the wilderness. We read…

7. And the angel of the LORD found her (Hagar) by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.

8. And he said, Hagar, Sarai’s maid, whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.

9. And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.

10. And the angel of the LORD said unto her, I will multiply thy seed (unborn child, Ishmael) exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.

11. And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.

Genesis 16:6 -11 KJV Bible

Now the mind-boggling question is… Why would God send His angel to Hagar If He’s not please with her??? God would have neglected her since He did want to bless her with the child out of angriness.

If Ishmael and her mother are responsible for world violence, then Pastor Femi KICC is definitely telling us God named a _violence child_, because Ishmael was named by God as seen from the above.

Furthermore, Father Abraham was forever grateful to the giving of Ishmael and continue being more prayerful to His Lord and Saviour (Allah).

And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) said: “… All the praises and thanks be to Allah, Who has given me in old age Isma’il (Ishmael) and Ishaq (Isaac). Verily! My Lord is indeed the All-Hearer of invocations. O my Lord! Make me one who performs As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and (also) from my offspring, our Lord! And accept my invocation.”

Surah Ibrahim (Abraham), 14 vs 35 – 40.

That’s why in the foremost cited Quranic verse, Allah said, “… used to invoking Allah with humility”. Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) was never disrespectful or impatient with Allah at all in whatever way, he was forever humble and in fact Allah answer his invocations (do good things for him in this world and the world to come) and chose him as his beloved. In summary, let’s check this Qur’anic verse:

“Verily, Ibrahim (Abraham) was an Ummah (a leader having all the good righteous qualities of a nation), obedient to Allah, Hanif (i.e. to worship none but Allah), and he was not one of those who were Al-Mushrikun (polytheists, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, and those who joined partners with Allah). (He was) thankful for His (Allah’s) Favours/ Graces. He (Allah) chose him (as an intimate friend) and guided him to a Straight Path (Islamic Monotheism – neither Judaism nor Christianity).

Surah Nahl 16 vs 120 – 121

Oh! I see! So Father Abraham was never even a Christian!!! I see Pastor Femi KICC was blabbing, trying to tantalize a-part-lineage and badmouth the other part. How will they (the Christian) even cope with it, when they disintegrate the Messengers: accepting some while rejecting or denying others. You will never see a conscious Muslim trying to talk ill of Prophet Eesah (Jesus), we accept all the Messengers of Allah as the Glorious Qur’an says:

“… (the believers say), We make no distinction between one and another of His Messengers” – and they say, “We hear, and we obey…”

Surah Al-Baqarah, 2 vs 285.

In conclusion, Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) was never impatient as Pastor Femi KICC has said and God never gave him a wild or violence son _Ishmael_ who as a result, is the cause of catastrophe, as the Pastor selfishly proclaimed. But rather God did bless Ishmael, and does everything good for Abraham in this world and have a good provision for him in Afterlife.

“And We (Allah) gave him (Abraham) good in this world, and in the Hereafter he shall be of the righteous”

Surah Nahl, 16 vs 122

“And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation”.

Genesis 17:20.

Imagine God blessing a violence child? A child He gave out of angriness?? God made a violent child a great nation???

Let the _educated illiterate_ Pastor Femi KICC stops feeding people with mere concocted lies! Does he not read about wars and plunders in his own version of bible?! Let him be educated on biblical history and the history of the Christendom; the crusaders before coming up with his fabrications next time.
