Ishmael was not the father of the Arabs:
The following article was taken from http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,3186.msg15853.html#msg15853:
Muhammad SAW was sent as the first and only warner to the Arabs who were deeply entrenched in paganism. However Ismael A.S is also a consider beloved prophet of Allah who informed his sons about the one and only god of the heavens and the earth. However seeing as Ismael A.S was the father of the Arabs, wasn't he a warner as well?
Ishmael is not the father of the Arabs. You're speaking Jews' and Christians corrupt language. Ishmael, peace be upon him, was a Prophet. His Message, however, was not to last for all time and all places. Like Noah and others, peace be upon them, his Scriptures no longer exist. So the everlasting warner to all Arabs and all of mankind was Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

It is also worth mentioning that it was the pagans who plagiarized Islam, and not the other way around. Allah Almighty made Ishmael a Prophet after the Kaaba was built. So Ishmael and Abraham, peace be upon them, taught the Arabs then how to do the circumambulation (tawaf) around the Kaaba, and to Pray towards the Kaaba, because it is the House of Allah Almighty.
Similarly in the Bible, we find the people, who even pre-dated Judaism, did circumambulation around Jerusalem. Also the Bible prophesied that GOD Almighty will established His House in the desert of Kedar, who is Ishmael's son. This is the Kaaba today.

The Bible's holy stones. They even get anointed with oil.
The black stone is not holy in Islam. It was no more than an asteroid sent by GOD Almighty to determine the location of where the Kaaba to be built by Abraham and Ishmael, peace be upon them. And today, it is placed in one of the Kaaba's corners to mark the start and finish of the 7 circumambulations (tawaaf) around the Kaaba.
