𐤉𐤔𐤌𐤏𐤀𐤋, yašamaāal

The word yashamaāal (𐤉𐤔𐤌𐤏𐤀𐤋) or “Ishmael” is the name of 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤌 (Abaram) aka 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham)’s () () and a child born by the 𐤌𐤑𐤓𐤉 (Matsaray) handmaiden, 𐤄𐤂𐤓 (Hagar). He is the older () of 𐤉𐤑𐤇𐤒 (Yatsakhaq).

However, most importantly he is the () of 𐤍𐤁𐤉𐤅𐤕 (Nabayauat), 𐤒𐤃𐤓 (Qadar), 𐤀𐤃𐤁𐤀𐤋 (Adabaal), 𐤌𐤉𐤃𐤎𐤀𐤌 (Mayadasaam), 𐤌𐤔𐤌𐤏 (Mashamaā), 𐤃𐤅𐤌𐤄 (Dauamah), 𐤌𐤔𐤀 (Mashaa), 𐤄𐤃𐤃 (Hadad), 𐤕𐤉𐤌𐤀 (Tayamaa), 𐤉𐤈𐤅𐤓 (Yathauar), 𐤍𐤐𐤉𐤔 (Napayash), and 𐤒𐤃𐤌𐤄 (Qadamah). He also had a () who married his nephew, 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau). However, she was called by two different names 𐤌𐤇𐤋𐤕 (Makhalat) meaning “sickness”, given to her by 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau) after marriage and 𐤁𐤔𐤌𐤕 (Bashamat) meaning “perfume” given to her by him, her father, at birth.

The Birth and Concubine

When 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤌 (Abaram) was 86 years old, his 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah), 𐤔𐤓𐤉 (Sharay), told him to have sex with her handmaiden to bring forth a child. 𐤄𐤂𐤓 (Hagar) is a 𐤌𐤑𐤓𐤉 (Matsaray) from the land of 𐤌𐤑𐤓𐤉𐤌 (Matsarayam) from the lineage of () who bore him his () ().

However, when the young boy was between 17 and 19 years old, 𐤔𐤓𐤄 (Sharah) told 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) to send away 𐤄𐤂𐤓 (Hagar) and his () () and he complied but still maintained interactions with his (). The outcasted man became the progenitor of the 𐤉𐤔𐤌𐤏𐤀𐤋𐤉𐤌 (Yashamaāalayam) or brown-skinned Arabs and his descendants would create the Islamic faith. His name could mean “Yah hears” or “He who hears Al” in 𐤏𐤁𐤓𐤉𐤕 (Ābarayat).

Inheritance and rights

At the age of 14, he was freed along with his (). 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (Yahauah) / 𐤉𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Yahayah)’s covenant made clear he was not to inherit 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham)’s house and that 𐤉𐤑𐤇𐤒 (Yatsakhaq) would be the seed of the covenant: “Take your son, your only son, whom you love and go to the region of Moriah.” 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) gave the young boy and his () a supply of bread and water and sent them away.

𐤄𐤂𐤓 (Hagar) entered the wilderness of 𐤁𐤀𐤓 𐤔𐤁𐤏 (Baar Shabaā) where the two soon ran out of water and 𐤄𐤂𐤓 (Hagar), not wanting to witness the death of her (), set the boy some distance away from herself, and wept. “And God heard the voice of the lad” and sent their 𐤌𐤋𐤀𐤊 (malaak) to tell 𐤄𐤂𐤓 (Hagar), “Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation.” And the 𐤀𐤋𐤄𐤉𐤌 (alahayam) “opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water”, from which she drew to save his life and her own. “And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer.”

The Marriage and Multiple 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah)

Two different sources provide differing names for his first 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah). It is said that he marries a 𐤌𐤅𐤀𐤁𐤉 (Mauaabay) named 𐤏𐤃𐤉𐤔𐤄 (Ādayashah). If he married a 𐤌𐤅𐤀𐤁𐤉 (Mauaabay) then this could provide some explanation for why the Moors [claimed descendants of 𐤌𐤅𐤀𐤁 (Mauaab)] were followers of Islam, as they would have received teachings from one of their ancestors being 𐤏𐤃𐤉𐤔𐤄 (Ādayashah)’s husband. Another name they give for his first wife is a 𐤌𐤑𐤓𐤉 (Matsaray) named 𐤌𐤓𐤉𐤁𐤄 (Marayabah), which fits the narrative of 𐤄𐤂𐤓 (Hagar) seeking a woman from her people for a 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah) for her ().

Later on, 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) went to see him, and, according to the promise to 𐤔𐤓𐤄 (Sharah), stopped at his ()’s tent without getting off of his camel. He was not there at the time, but his ()’s 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah) refused 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) food and beat her children and cursed her husband within 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham)’s hearing. 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) then asked her to tell 𐤉𐤔𐤌𐤏𐤀𐤋 (Yashamaāal) when he returned that an old man had asked that he change the peg of the tent. 𐤉𐤔𐤌𐤏𐤀𐤋 (Yashamaāal) understood that it was his (), took the hint, and separated from his 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah). He then married another woman, named 𐤐𐤕𐤉𐤌𐤄 (Phatayamah), who, when three years later 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) came again to see his son, received him kindly; therefore 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) asked her to tell her husband that the peg was good.

He then went to 𐤊𐤍𐤏𐤍 (Kanaān) and settled with his (), 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham). This probably occurred after the death of 𐤔𐤓𐤄 (Sharah).

The 𐤁𐤕 (bat)

𐤁𐤔𐤌𐤕 (Bashamat) was the third wife of 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau). Before 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau) married her as his third wife, he had named one of his 𐤊𐤍𐤏𐤍𐤉 (Kanaānay) 𐤀𐤔𐤄𐤉𐤌 (ashahayam) after 𐤁𐤔𐤌𐤕 (Bashamat), probably because he knew of her since they were cousins. The 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah) whom 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau) named as 𐤁𐤔𐤌𐤕 (Bashamat), was 𐤏𐤃𐤄 (Ādah) the 𐤇𐤕𐤉 (Khatay), his first 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah). So after he married his third 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah), he changed 𐤁𐤔𐤌𐤕 (Bashamat) the 𐤉𐤔𐤌𐤏𐤀𐤋𐤉 (Yashamaāalay)’s name to 𐤌𐤇𐤋𐤕 (Makhalat). 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau) sought this union with someone who wasn’ a 𐤊𐤍𐤏𐤍𐤉 (Kanaānay), in an effort to reconcile his relationship with his parents, namely with his father whose blessing he sought. However, there is no record of his parents’ approval of the union.

When adding the 𐤉 (yad) to the end of a word, it creates a possessive of the original word. It can either signify “my…” or identify a member of a nation. For example, 𐤏𐤁𐤓 (Ābar) is the progenitor, but 𐤏𐤁𐤓𐤉 (Ābaray) is the singular descendant of him also known as a Hebrew.

The Descendants

𐤉𐤔𐤌𐤏𐤀𐤋𐤉 (Yashamaāalay) or Ishmaelite are the descendants of 𐤉𐤔𐤌𐤏𐤀𐤋 (Yashamaāal) and were a tribal confederation of Iron Age ()-speaking tribes of the ancient Near East, which inhabited a part of the Arab world. 𐤉𐤔𐤌𐤏𐤀𐤋 (Yashamaāal) had one () and twelve () described as “twelve princes” mentioned in 𐤁𐤓𐤀𐤔𐤉𐤕 (BaRaashayat) 17:20. In Islamic tradition, these gave rise to the “Twelve Tribes of Ishmael”, Arab tribes from which the early Muslims were descended. However, over time and through mixing with 𐤉𐤔𐤓𐤀𐤋 (Yasharaal), 𐤀𐤃𐤅𐤌 (Adauam), and other nations they have become nonexistent as a separate tribe and community.

When adding the 𐤌 (mayam) after the 𐤉 (yad) to the end of a word, it creates a plural of the original word. It can identify multiple members of a nation. For example, 𐤏𐤁𐤓 (Ābar) is the progenitor, but 𐤏𐤁𐤓𐤉𐤌 (Ābarayam) are the plural descendants of him also known as Hebrews.
