The story of Prophet Ismail is a unique one. Firstly he was left in the desert with his mother without any food or drink until she found the water gushing. Then a community was built up around them so that the people could drink from the well. The people were pure Arabs and taught him Arabic. They saw his father (Ibrahim) come and go. One day, his father had a dream that he must sacrifice his son. Ismail told him you must sacrifice me. This is the strength and the piety of his son, Ismail!
