Was Abraham’s son Ishmael considered to be a prophet?

Bible: No       Qur'an: Yes

Genesis 16:7-15 – 8. Hagar… 11. Behold thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael... 12. And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him…

Galatians 4:22-31 – 22. For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. 31. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

An-Nisa 4:163 – We sent revelation upon you, as We sent it upon… Abraham and Ishmael...

Maryam 19:54 – And make mention in the book (the story) of Ishmael. He was true to what he was promised. And he was a messenger (of Allah), a Prophet.
