According to Jewish (Christian, and Islamic) traditions, Abraham was the forefather of Jews and Arabs, the husband of Sarah, Hagar, and Keturah, and the father of Ishmael, Isaac and other children. He is the protagonist and/or pseudo-author of several texts written in the Second Temple period, such as the Testament of Abraham and the Apocalypse of Abraham.
