Nations from Abraham Isaac Ismail
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

71 And his wife was standing (there) and she laughed: but We gave her glad tidings of Isaac and after him of Jacob.
72 She said: "Alas for me! Shall I bear a child seeing I am an old woman and my husband here is an old man? That would indeed be a wonderful thing!"

58 Those were some of the prophets on whom Allah did bestow His Grace of the posterity of Adam and of those whom We carried (in the Ark) with Noah and of the posterity of Abraham and Israel of those whom We guided and chose; whenever the Signs of (Allah) Most Gracious were rehearsed to them they would fall down in prostrate adoration and in tears.

Your Question: ….the angle say that God would bless Her son and would make his dissended also a great person,what do you have to say about this.
The Noble Prophet Abraham had two sons, both of whom were declared righteous and Prophets by the Lord: the elder was Ismail from Hagar, and the younger was Isaac from Sarah…… and as confirmed by the above quotations from both the Bible and the Quran, the Lord promised that He will build nations from both the seeds of Abraham.
The Lord Most High fulfilled His Covenent and from the
progeny of the Noble Prophet Isaac rose the great nation of
The Lord Most Exalted also fulfilled His covenent to build a nation from the seed of the Noble Prophet Ismail….for the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, Prophet Mohamed (saws) is a direct descendant of the Noble Prophet Ismail, son of Abraham (may peace be upon them all).
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 2 Surah Baqarah verses 136-137:
136 Say ye (O Muslims): "We believe in Allah and the Revelation given to us and to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses, and Jesus and that given to (all) Prophets from their Lord we make no difference between one and another of them and we bow to Allah (in Islam)."
137 So if they believe as ye believe they are indeed on the right path; but if they turn back it is they who are in schism; but Allah will suffice thee as against them and He is the All-Hearing the All- Knowing.
The Quran is in agreement with the contents of the Bible regarding the covenant of the Lord to emerge great nations and Prophets from both the seeds of Abraham, from the descendants of the Noble Prophets Isaac and from Ismail.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
