As Salaam Alaikum!
As Muslims, we are commanded in the Koran to wish each other with a
salaam as and when we meet/come across or write to each other.
Yes, Koran do not mention names of the children of Noah so do the name
of Prophet Ismael when Prophet Abraham's attempt to sacrifice him
based on his dream verse.
However, Koran asks all Muslim to read the previous scriptures in which history has been mentioned so do the names of prophets & their families.
However, any thing in the Bible that deviates from Koranic injunctions on rights/rituals/spirituality, Koran has categorically asked us to disregard while mentioning that some people of the previous scriptures has changed the scriptures these to suit their cause.
So as per the Bible, though prophet Ismael's name is not mentioned as the one who was about to be sacrificed by Prophet Abraham, but clearly mentioned as the 'only son' that means Prophet Ismael being the eldest & Prophet Issac was not born during this event. However, Christians contest that it was Prophet Issac as they consider in their own wrong
wisdom/notion that Prophet Ismael being son of Bibi Hagar cannot be accepted as a legitimate son despite Bible clearly mentioned that God will make 2 big nations out of these 2 Prophets generations.
So if we Muslims accepts that his only son as Prophet Ismael, then we should also accept the names of Noah's sons/families & other prophet's names mentioned in the Bible as well.
So the names of the sons of Prophet Noah mentioned in the bible were
Shem, Ham and Japheth and Noah's father's name was Lemech.
By the way most of the Hadith's stories if one goes through are in line with biblical stories that would have been told by the righteous Jews/Christians & recorded when they reverted to Islam during our Prophet's time.
May the Almighty Allah ahve mercy on us to forgive our sins and guide us all to the true path of Islam as per the Koran for rest of life.
