The Story of Ishmael AS - Chapter 9 (And Allah's Statement: "... hastening."), Book 60 (Prophets), Sahih Al-Bukhari (English/Arabic/Urdu)

The first lady to use a girdle was the mother of Ishmael AS. She used a girdle so that she might hide her tracks from Sarah. Abraham brought her and her son Ishmael while she was suckling him, to a place near the Ka'ba under a tree on the spot of Zam-zam, at the highest place in the mosque. During those days there was nobody in Mecca, nor was there any water So he made them sit over there and placed near them a leather bag containing some dates, and a small water-skin containing some water, and set out homeward. Ishmael's AS mother followed him saying, "O Abraham AS! Where are you going, leaving us in this valley where there is no person whose company we may enjoy, nor is there anything (to enjoy)?" She repeated that to him many times, but he did not look back at her Then she asked him, "Has Allah ordered you to do so?" He AS said, "Yes." She said, "Then He will not neglect us," and returned while Abraham AS proceeded onwards, and on reaching the Thaniya where they could not see him, he faced the Ka'ba, and raising both hands, invoked Allah saying the following prayers:

'O our Lord! I have made some of my offspring dwell in a valley without cultivation, by Your Sacred House (Kaba at Mecca) in order, O our Lord, that they may offer prayer perfectly. So fill some hearts among men with love towards them, and (O Allah) provide them with fruits, so that they may give thanks.' (14.37) Ishmael's AS mother went on suckling Ishmael and drinking from the water (she had). When the water in the water-skin had all been used up, she became thirsty and her child also became thirsty. She started looking at him (i.e. Ishmael AS) tossing in agony; She left him, for she could not endure looking at him, and found that the mountain of Safa was the nearest mountain to her on that land. She stood on it and started looking at the valley keenly so that she might see somebody, but she could not see anybody.
Then she descended from Safa and when she reached the valley, she tucked up her robe and ran in the valley like a person in distress and trouble, till she crossed the valley and reached the Marwa mountain where she stood and started looking, expecting to see somebody, but she could not see anybody. She repeated that (running between Safa and Marwa) seven times."The Prophet SAW said, "This is the source of the tradition of the walking of people between them (i.e. Safa and Marwa). When she reached the Marwa (for the last time) she heard a voice and she asked herself to be quiet and listened attentively. She heard the voice again and said, 'O, (whoever you may be)! You have made me hear your voice; have you got something to help me?"
And behold! She saw an angel at the place of Zam-zam, digging the earth with his heel (or his wing), till water flowed from that place. She started to make something like a basin around it, using her hand in this way, and started filling her water-skin with water with her hands, and the water was flowing out after she had scooped some of it."The Prophet SAW added, "May Allah bestow Mercy on Ishmael's AS mother! Had she let the Zam-zam (flow without trying to control it) (or had she not scooped from that water) (to fill her water-skin), Zam-zam would have been a stream flowing on the surface of the earth." The Prophet SAW further added, "Then she drank (water) and suckled her child. The angel said to her, 'Don't be afraid of being neglected, for this is the House of Allah which will be built by this boy and his father, and Allah never neglects His people.' The House (i.e. Kaba) at that time was on a high place resembling a hillock, and when torrents came, they flowed to its right and left. She lived in that way till some people from the tribe of Jurhum or a family from Jurhum passed by her and her child, as they (i.e. the Jurhum people) were coming through the way of Kada'.
They landed in the lower part of Makkah where they saw a bird that had the habit of flying around water and not leaving it. They said, 'This bird must be flying around water, though we know that there is no water in this valley.' They sent one or two messengers who discovered the source of water, and returned to inform them of the water. So, they all came (towards the water)." The Prophet SAW added, "Ishmael's AS mother was sitting near the water. They asked her, 'Do you allow us to stay with you?" She replied, 'Yes, but you will have no right to possess the water.' They agreed to that." The Prophet SAW further said, "Ishmael's AS mother was pleased with the whole situation as she used to love to enjoy the company of the people.
So, they settled there, and later on they sent for their families who came and settled with them so that some families became permanent residents there. The child (i.e. Ishmael AS) grew up and learnt Arabic from them and (his virtues) caused them to love and admire him as he grew up, and when he reached the age of puberty they made him marry a woman from amongst them. After Ishmael's AS mother had died, Abraham AS came after Ishmael's AS marriage in order to see his family that he had left before, but he did not find Ishmael AS there. When he asked Ishmael's AS wife about him, she replied, 'He has gone in search of our livelihood.' Then he asked her about their way of living and their condition, and she replied, 'We are living in misery; we are living in hardship and destitution,' complaining to him. He said, 'When your husband returns, convey my salutation to him and tell him to change the threshold of the gate (of his house).' When Ishmael AS came, he seemed to have felt something unusual, so he asked his wife, 'Has anyone visited you?' She replied, 'Yes, an old man of so-and-so description came and asked me about you and I informed him, and he asked about our state of living, and I told him that we were living in a hardship and poverty.'
On that Ishmael said, 'Did he advise you anything?' She replied, 'Yes, he told me to convey his salutation to you and to tell you to change the threshold of your gate.' Ishmael AS said, 'It was my father, and he has ordered me to divorce you. Go back to your family.' So, Ishmael AS divorced her and married another woman from amongst them (i.e. Jurhum). Then Abraham AS stayed away from them for a period as long as Allah wished and called on them again but did not find Ishmael AS. So he came to Ishmael's wife and asked her about Ishmael AS. She said, 'He has gone in search of our livelihood.' Abraham AS asked her, 'How are you getting on?' asking her about their sustenance and living. She replied, 'We are prosperous and well-off (i.e. we have everything in abundance).' Then she thanked Allah' Abraham AS said, 'What kind of food do you eat?' She said. 'Meat.' He said, 'What do you drink?' She said, 'Water." He said, "O Allah! Bless their meat and water."
The Prophet SAW added, "At that time they did not have grain, and if they had grain, he would have also invoked Allah to bless it." The Prophet SAW added, "If somebody has only these two things as his sustenance, his health and disposition will be badly affected, unless he lives in Makkah." The Prophet SAW added," Then Abraham AS said Ishmael's AS wife, "When your husband comes, give my regards to him and tell him that he should keep firm the threshold of his gate.' When Ishmael AS came back, he asked his wife, 'Did anyone call on you?' She replied, 'Yes, a good-looking old man came to me,' so she praised him and added. 'He asked about you, and I informed him, and he asked about our livelihood and I told him that we were in a good condition.' Ishmael AS asked her, 'Did he give you any piece of advice?' She said, 'Yes, he told me to give his regards to you and ordered that you should keep firm the threshold of your gate.' On that Ishmael AS said, 'It was my father, and you are the threshold (of the gate). He has ordered me to keep you with me.'

Then Abraham AS stayed away from them for a period as long as Allah wished, and called on them afterwards. He saw Ishmael AS under a tree near Zamzam, sharpening his arrows. When he saw Abraham AS, he rose up to welcome him (and they greeted each other as a father does with his son or a son does with his father). Abraham AS said, 'O Ishmael! Allah has given me an order.' Ishmael AS said, 'Do what your Lord has ordered you to do.' Abraham AS asked, 'Will you help me?' Ishmael AS said, 'I will help you.' Abraham AS said, Allah has ordered me to build a house here,' pointing to a hillock higher than the land surrounding it." The Prophet SAW added, "Then they raised the foundations of the House (i.e. the Ka'ba). Ishmael AS brought the stones and Abraham AS was building, and when the walls became high, Ishmael AS brought this stone and put it for Abraham AS who stood over it and carried on building, while Ishmael AS was handing him the stones, and both of them were saying, 'O our Lord! Accept (this service) from us, Verily, You are the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.' The Prophet SAW added, "Then both of them went on building and going round the Ka'ba saying: O our Lord ! Accept (this service) from us, Verily, You are the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing." [Narrated by Ibn Abbas]

Video: Collapse of Darwinism : Theory of Evolution - Harun Yahya (English)

The second explanation is the theory of "evolution," which asserts that living things are not the products of an intelligent design, but of coincidental causes and natural processes. As a matter of fact, however, scientific findings do not support the theory of evolution. Findings from the last two decades in particular openly contradict the basic assumptions of this theory.
