(2) Hajerah A.S: A Slave Girl or a Princess


Dr. Ihsan ur Rehman Ghauri


Sarah came to Canaan from Mesopotamia through Haran, with his husband Abraham (pbAh) when she was 65. She was still childless; she was barren. There was a severe famine in Canaan at that time. So they proceeded to Egypt. The Egyptian king Pharaoh was very much impressed by the towering personality of Abraham (pbAh) and God’s miraculous intervention in favour of Sarah. Their nearest rivals were Ishmaelites and their progenitor Hagar. God was no party to their whims. He showered His blessings profoundly on Hagar, Sarah, and the descendants of both of them alike.
