Ishaaq (as) was the father of Yaqoob (as), also known as Jacob or Israel. Yaqoob (as) had 12 sons, which are known as Bani Israel, or the 12 tribes of Israel.

In the months since I have converted to Islam I have met many Muslims and learned so much about my new faith. I firmly believe this religion is perfect, although not all of its followers are. I think that is one of the things that makes it difficult for a new Muslim to learn about Islam. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with learning “how to be a good Muslim”. I see different Muslims who practice the religion in different ways, and I think I need to do everything in order to be “the perfect Muslim”. However, there is no such thing and I need to be reminded of that from time to time.
