Pearl of Wisdom
'The Ishmael that Allah mentions in His book And mention in the Book Ishmael ... was not Ishmael son of Abraham, rather he was one of the prophets whom Allah Almighty sent to his people, who took him and skinned his head and face. An angel came to him and said, 'Allah has sent me to you, so command me with whatever you wish.' He said, 'I have an example before me in what will be done to al?Husayn (AS).' ?
