Father Abraham - Father of many Nations

First of all,thank you so much about this valuable information about the trip of our father of prophets Abraham and his blessed wife lady Sarah. Being an Egyptian Muslim,I am so happy to read more about this topic, in fact , being an Abraham follower (like the Jewish) we pray 5 times a day, and pray for our sole God to bless Abraham and his family,as well as Mohammad and his family.
The long trip of Abraham and Sarah was around Jordan and Palestine and continued to Egypt. The question is what about the land of Canaan, and who was living in this land, and what about the native land of Abraham and Sarah?
According to our story, he started from Iraq, and when he arrived in Egypt the ancient king of Egypt welcomed him and his wife, and agreed to populate his message to the Egyptians at this time. But the king stayed stuck to his own belief and when they left, the king dedicated them a captured Egyptian queen from when he won the war in the south of Egypt.
This queen was our mother Haggar (the mother of Isamiel) just to serve and help them during their long return trip. I very much would like to know more about our common history with the Jewish people later, moreover, the story of the Jewish prophet Josef who saved Egypt from starvation, as well as the story of the prophet Moses.
Finally I say I am full of respect to the Jewish religion, as they suffered a lot just to prove faith and loyalty to our God (the god of Abraham and not Jesus Christ).
