It is not factored in the paradigmatic rendition provided here. 21:63, and his statement to the tyrant when he told him that Sarah was his sister (1/8).  Sarah is an exceptional woman and would never disobey her husband (3/8).  Abraham tells him that she is his sister (4/8), fearing that the ruler would take her and kill him if he said she was his wife (4/8).  Pharaoh tells Abraham to adorn her and send her to him, which he does (3/8).  Abraham then speaks with Sarah and tells her not to contradict him (2/8), for she is indeed his sister in religion (5/8), or they are the only believers or Muslims on earth (2/8).

As a result, the narrative traditions found in Islamic literature assume an authentically Islamic form which is as "original" as Jewish or Christian narrative traditions.  As a whole, the sample of Arabic sources represents a broad spectrum of Islamic opinion on the Abraham­Ishmael story.  A greater number of Christian parallels are available and would be noted by a scholar specializing in early Christian narratives, and particularly by a specialist in Syriac texts.  This is also the point at which the characters of Hagar and Ishmael enter the story.

Abraham tells him that she is his sister (7/8).  ________________________________________________________.  Abraham then speaks with Sarah and tells her not to contradict him (8/8), for she is indeed his sister "to God" (1/8) or they are the only believers or Muslims on earth (6/8) or both (1/8).  She requests that God prevent the infidel from touching her (3/8).  The tyrant/king reaches out to her and is stricken (8/8) with a seizure (4/8), or his hand is stricken (1/8).  Sarah prays to God to release him (1/8), or the tyrant/king tells her to pray to God to release him, for he says that he will not do it again (3/8).
