Answer: It depends on the root of the soul. Isaac is the opposite of Abraham. Abraham is the right line, Isaac the left, and Jacob is the middle line.
Ishmael did not have this seed; he remained close but not more than that.
Question: And what is “Ishmael” in us?
Answer: Ishmael in us is someone who is looking for the purpose of life and the Creator but always goes in a roundabout way. It is as if he is missing something. He is constantly near Abraham or his descendants and interferes with them all the time. On one hand he helps them, and on the other hand disturbs them.
It is written in the Torah that at the end of days, when the children of Israel return to the Holy Land where the Creator brought Abraham from Ur of the Chaldees, this land will initially be filled with descendants of Ishmael, who will prevent the descendants of Abraham from entering there. And we feel it to this day.
Question: Does it mean that they want something from the descendants of Abraham?
Answer: Yes, of course. They want something, we want something, and in the end, it will turn out as the Creator wants.
