The son of Abraham and the Egyptian Agar. In his boyhood he and his mother were sent into the wilderness by Abraham at the request of Sara his wife, a request to which he was directed by God to accede. Ismael was saved by Divine intervention from perishing of drought, lived in the wilderness of Parau, became famous as an archer, and married an Egyptian wife. The Arabs regard themselves as his descendants.
