Rereadings of the Genesis account with the focus ipon Abraham and upon hagar reveal a striking analogy with fugitives nowadays. Black womenist theologians recognize in Hagar who is treated as a bondwoman many similarities with their own past history as enslaved people. In addition, Islam re-interprets Hagar's expulsion as the foundation of Islam by her discovery of Mecca. Hagar is the first to perform the Hajj.
