Our dear Yosef must be unaware of Q سورة الصافات :107 where it says وفديناه بذبح عظيم or And We (Allah that is) ransomed him with a great slaughter!

Notice that this are the words of your Allah which means:

1. Allah is saying that he is the one who is sending a "great slaughter" and al-Mufasereen come to the rescue about this disaster and tell us that it is a كبش عظيم or a great Ram! Is that true our dear Yosef or was al-Tabari a liar and making things up? And how did Allah sent the ram to earth via al-Buraq may be?

2. Now the subject of the sacrifice? al-Mufasereen as per al-Tabari seem to disagree some tell us that the subject of the sacrifice is really Isaac! Here from al-Tabari

واختلف أهل التأويل، في المفديّ من الذبح من ابني إبراهيم، فقال بعضهم: هو إسحاق.

And just a few tell us that the subject of the sacrifice is Ismael Here from al-Tabari

هو إسماعيل or he is Ismael

What a disaster

And as usual when Muslims face a disaster of this magnitude they blame the Jews and here from al-Tabari

المَفْدِيّ إسماعيل، وزعمت اليهود أنه إسحاق وكذبت اليهود.

Or the subject of the sacrifice is Ismael and the Jews claimed that the Jews say that the subject of the sacrifice in Isaac and the Jews lied!

What a disaster

Again we don't know what the historical Muhammad would have regarded as the subject of the sacrifice and therefore the "father of the Arabs" otherwise al-Mufasereen would not have disagreed!

These are from your books our dear Yosef! Oh and here is Tafsir al-Tabari of this disaster

The moral of the story? Ismael is the father of the Arabs is big time fat lie!
