Mazar Hazrat Yusha’ bin Noon (Joshua b. Nun) (Peace be upon him)

Mazar Hazrat Yusha’ bin Noon (Joshua b. Nun) (Peace be upon him)

 in the town of Zayy near the city of al-Salt in Jordan. The tomb itself is roughly 10 meters in length. Some scholars and travelers claim that this is actually the Mazar of the prophet Hosea [Ar. Hoshu'a] (Peace be upon him). Hazrat Prophet Joshua (Peace be upon him) is not mentioned by name in the Quran but Muslim scholars say that he is the "companion" of Hazrat Musa (peace be upon him) mentioned in the holy Qur’an (18:60-65) and he became prophet after Hazrat Musa (Peace be upon him). Scholars on the narratives in the Quran referring to the Israelites' conquest of the Holy Land detail the stories associated with Joshua b. Nun. Ibn Kathir reports that Joshua was a great warrior and lived for 127 years
