Isaac - (Ishaq)
Or were you present when death came to Jacob
and he said to his sons:
“Who shall you serve from after me?”
“Your god, and the god of your fathers Abraham, and Ishmael,
and Isaac; One god and to Him we submit.”
“We believe in God and in what was sent down to us
and what was sent down to Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac,
and Jacob, and the Patriarchs, and what was given to Moses and Jesus, and what was given to the prophets from their Lord; we do not make a distinction between any of them
and to Him we submit.”
Or do you say that Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac
and Jacob and the Patriarchs were Jewish or Nazarenes?
“Are you more knowledgeable or is God?”
Who is more wicked than the one who conceals a testimony with him from God? God is not unaware of what you do.
“We believe in God and what was sent down to us and what was sent down to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Patriarchs, and what was given to Moses and Jesus
and the prophets from their Lord.
We do not make a distinction between any of them,
and to Him we submit.”
We have inspired you as We had inspired Noah and the prophets after him. And We had inspired Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the Patriarchs,
and Jesus, and Job, and Jonah, and Aaron, and Solomon;
and We gave David the Psalms.
And We granted him Isaac and Jacob, both of whom We guided; and Noah We guided from before; and from his progeny is David, and Solomon, and Job, and Joseph, and Moses, and Aaron. It is such that We recompense the good doers.
And his wife was standing, so she laughed when We gave her the good news of Isaac, and after Isaac, Jacob.
“O my! Shall I give birth when I am an old woman, and here is my husband an old man? This is indeed a strange thing!”
“Do you wonder at the decree of God?
The mercy of God and blessings are upon you
O people of the Sanctuary. He is Praiseworthy, Glorious.”
And as such, your Lord has chosen you, and He teaches you the interpretation of the narrations, and He completes His blessings upon you and upon the descendants of Jacob, as He completed it for your fathers before that, Abraham and Isaac. Your Lord is Knowledgeable, Wise.
“And I have followed the creed of my fathers Abraham,
and Isaac, and Jacob. It was not for us to set up partners with God at all. That is the blessings of God over us and over the people, but most of the people are not thankful.”
“Praise be to God who has granted me to my old age Ishmael
and Isaac; my Lord is Hearer of the prayer.”
When they entered upon him, they said:
“We are worrisome of you.”
“Do not worry, we bring you good news of a knowledgeable son.”
“What good news can you bring me when old age has come upon me? Is that your good news?”
“We have brought you good news with the truth, so do not be of those in denial.”
“And who would deny the mercy of his Lord except the misguided ones!”
So when he abandoned them and what they served besides God, We granted him Isaac and Jacob,
and each of them We made a prophet.
And We granted him Isaac and Jacob afterward, and each of them We made a good doer.
And We granted him Isaac and Jacob, and We made within his progeny the prophethood and the Book. And We gave him his reward in this world, and in the Hereafter he is among the righteous.
And We gave him the good news of the coming of Isaac, a prophet from among the righteous. And We blessed him and Isaac. And from among their progeny, some are righteous,
and some are clearly wicked.
And recall Our servants Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob. They were resourceful, and with vision.
We had chosen them to enforce awareness of the Hereafter.
And they are with Us of the elite, the best.
