Hagar (cont.2)

but didnt Sarah know that Hashem promised her a son from Avraham.One of the Malachim that came to visit Avraham told him he would have a son with Sarah.So then why did Avraham marry Hagar?
15 years


  1. The marriage of Hagar to Avraham took place fifteen years prior to the promise that Sarah would have a son and Yishmael was thirteen years old when Yitzchak was born. The commenatries explain that Sarah’s sacrifice of giving Hagar to Avraham as a wife was the beginning of the process that led to her being able to have her own child.
