* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ وَٱذْكُرْ فِي ٱلْكِتَابِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ إِنَّهُ كَانَ صَادِقَ ٱلْوَعْدِ وَكَانَ رَسُولاً نَّبِيّاً }

And mention in the Book Ishmael. Indeed he was true to his promise — he never promised anything which he did not fulfil; he once waited for three days for someone whom he had promised to meet; or it is said that he waited an entire year until that person finally returned to the place in which he Ishamel was supposed to have met the former; and he was a messenger to the tribe of Jurhum a prophet likewise.
