Q: I just wanted to know if Muslims believe that Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) was a descendant of Ismaeel or Ishaaq or somebody else. Please provide proofs/verses from Qur’an or Hadith. Other form of evidence will be helpful.
A: He was a descendant of Ismaeel (alaihis salaam).
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
