Explanation of the words: Children of Isma’il (ولد إسماعيل)

Question

I have come across this statement in a few Hadiths wherein Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) mentions that the virtue of a certain action is like emancipating a slave from the children of Nabi Isma’il (‘alayhis salam).

For example, Imam Muslim narrates:

من قال: لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له، له الملك وله الحمد وهو على كل شيء قدير، عشر مرار كان كمن أعتق أربعة أنفس من ولد إسماعيل

1. What exactly is the virtue or status of the children of Nabi Isma’il (‘alayhis salam) that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) has made specific mention of them?

2. The virtue of freeing a slave is that Allah Ta’ala will free every limb of a person from Jahannam. Nowadays, achieving this reward is somewhat impossible as slavery does not really exist, hence if a person were to act upon the above Hadith and similar ones, would he be getting the same virtue as physically freeing a slave?

Sayyiduna Zubayr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) preventing his wife from going to the Masjid

Question

Some scholars (Tuhfatul Qari 3/219) have related this story that Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu’anhu) prevented his wife Sayyidah ‘Atikah (radiyallahu’anhua) from going to the Masjid.

Is this correct?

Because in the following passage, this story is related to Sayyiduna Zubayr (radiyallahu’anhu) stopping her from the Masjid.

وذكر أبو عمر في «التّمهيد» أنّ عمر لما خطبها شرطت عليه ألّا يضربها ولا يمنعها من الحقّ ولا من الصّلاة في المسجد النبويّ، ثم شرطت ذلك على الزّبير فتحيّل عليها أن كمن لها لما خرجت إلى صلاة العشاء، فلما مرّت به ضرب على عجيزتها، فلما رجعت قالت: إنا للَّه! فسد النّاس! فلم تخرج بعد

عن سالم- أن عاتكة بنت زيد كانت تحت عمر، فكانت تكثر الاختلاف إلى المسجد النبويّ، وكان عمر يكره ذلك، فقيل لها في ذلك، فقالت: ما كنت بتاركته إلا أن يمنعني، فكأنه كره أن يمنعها. فتزوّجها رجل بعد عمر فكان يمنعها. قلت لسالم: من هو؟ قال: الزّبير بن العوّام
