Yasir Qadhi: Who Did God Ask Abraham To Sacrifice? Isaac Not Ishmael

Yasir Qadhi: Who Did God Ask Abraham To Sacrifice? Isaac Not Ishmael Contemporary Moslem leaders tell their followers that it was Ishmael Abraham was to sacrifice. For example, which son was the promised covenant child to Abraham in his old age; was it Ishmael or Isaac? The Koran points to Isaac – Sura 11: 69-73; 15: 51-53. The Islamic leaders have led their people to believe it was Ishmael. One of them must be wrong. Both of them cannot be correct. For some strange inexplicable reasons, perhaps to seek to maintain their closeness to Abraham, many Arab Moslem leaders chose to replace Isaac with their ancestor Ishmael even though his name was never mentioned in relation to being the promised son. They have subsequently led the entire Moslem world to believe that it was Ishmael that was both the promised son and the one to be sacrificed when it was actually Isaac. In this video popular Moslem scholar Yasir Qadhi shows how majority of very early Moslem scholars claim that it is Isaac that was to have been sacrificed and not Ishmael.
