Abraham and Hagar’s son, Ismail, marries and becomes assimilated into Arabia.

Her search for water in which she scuttles in the area between the two mountains of Safa and Marwa later becomes one of the rituals of the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca, reminding believers of the lesson of balancing trust in providential care with the exertion of effort, as modeled by this matriarch of Islam.
