The Prophet Abraham is an example of faith for Judaism, Christian and Islam. Hagar, the mother of Abraham’s son, Ishmael, plays a closely related and pivotal role in the Hebrew Bible and the Islamic “Stories of the Prophets.” This free webinar will be moderated by Dr. David D. Grafton, Professor of Islamic Studies and Christian-Muslim Relations.
