Thanks to the always watchful Mullah:
The Muslim Student Organization and the Islamic Center of Central Missouri are working together to offer Eid festivities for both Muslim students on campus and Muslims in the Columbia community.
MSO Spokesman Mahir Khan said the latter Eid festival is a commemoration of the Prophet Abraham’s willingness to obey God.
“Muslims celebrate the sacrifice that the prophet Abraham made when he’s commanded by God to sacrifice his own son Isaac and at the very last minute God changed it to a ram,” Khan said. “Muslims celebrate his willingness to obey God in such a situation.”Â Â (The Maneater has more)
Did Mahir Khan really say “commanded by God to sacrifice his own son Isaac” or did he say Ishmael?Â Â According to Islamic traditions, it was Ishmael. Did the writer change it or is Mahir out to deceive in order to make his religion appear “Abrahamic?”
As usual, the Muslims claim the Jews changed the name of Ishmael to Isaac: When Isaac was born, Abraham had two sons. Because of chauvinism, the name of Ishmael was changed to Isaac in all of Genesis 22. But God has preserved the word “only” to show us what it should have been. (Islam 101)
Or here, from another (Islamic) Website:
It is related that a renowned traditionalist of Jewish origin, from the Qurayza tribe, and another Jewish scholar, who converted to Islam, told that Caliph Omar Ibn cAbd al-cAzÃ®z (717-20) that the Jews were well informed that Ismail was the one who was bound, but that they concealed this out of jealousy.
The Jewish Scriptures make it quite plain that it was Isaac. God said to Abraham:
“Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering upon one of the mountains of which I shall tell you. Genesis 22.2
In the same way the Christian Scriptures also positively identify the son whom Abraham was commanded to sacrifice as Isaac.
