Accordingly, your Lord will pick you out and teach you the true meaning of events and perfectly fulfill His blessing on you, as well as on the family of Jacob, just as He fulfilled it perfectly before upon your forebears Abraham and Isaac. Most certainly, your Lord is Knowing, Wise.” (Qur’an, 12:6)

In other verses, God reveals the following information about this blessed line:

We gave him [Abraham] Isaac and Jacob, and placed prophethood and the Book among his progeny. We gave him his reward in this world, and in the Hereafter he will be among the righteous.” (Qur’an, 29:27)

Once again, God proclaims Isaac and Jacob the best of all human beings:

And remember Our servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, men of true strength and inner sight. We purified their sincerity through sincere remembrance of the abode. In Our eyes, they are among the best of chosen men.” (Qur’an, 38:45-47)

In the following verse, once again God discusses Isaac and Jacob in connection with the land of Canaan:

When he [Abraham] separated himself from them and what they worshipped besides God, We gave him Isaac and Jacob, making each of them a prophet. We endowed them with Our mercy and made them highly honored.” (Qur’an, 19:49-50)

In the above verse, God discusses the event of Abraham separating from his tribe at God’s command and migrating to the Land of Canaan. Upon Abraham’s obedience, God rewarded him with Isaac and Jacob as blessings. Everywhere in the Qur’an, whenever the Holy land is discussed, the discussion includes Isaac, Jacob, and Jacob’s family.
