      Was Hazrat Yusha (alaihi salaam) a Prophet?


      Assalamo alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

      There seems to be some confusion over the status of Hazrat Yusha (alaihi salaam), the attendant of Hazrat Musa (alaihi salaam) mentioned in the Holy Quran (18:60). In addition to this, I would like to ask is there any hadith which mentioned Hazrat Danyal (alaihi salaam)? Jazak Allah khair.

      Re: Was Hazrat Yusha (alaihi salaam) a Prophet?


      Asalamu Alaikum,

      According to series of lectures by Sheikh Anwar Al-Awlaki on the "Lives of the Prophets", He says that Yusha' bin Nun was a Prophet after Musa. He is the one mentioned in the Surah Khaf, the one who was traveling w/Musa (AS) and then they met Khidr.
      - It is mentioned in the Tafsir of ibn Kathir, that Umar and some other Companions saw the body of Prophet Daniel, And they buried it.
      Allahu A'lam.
      salaam

      Thank you for the resources, Jazak Allah Khair. Yes, I know of a hadith which says that after one Israelite prophet died, another would succeed him, so this means that Hazrat Yusha (alaihi salaam) was indeed a Prophet.

      Re: Was Hazrat Yusha (alaihi salaam) a Prophet?


      Assalamu alaikum. Regarding the establishment of Yusha as the companion of Musa this is established in sahih el-Bukhari from Said ibn Jubayr who said:

      "I said to Ibn 'Abbas, "Nauf-al-Bakali claims that Moses of Bani Israel was not Moses, the companion of Al-Khadir." Ibn 'Abbas said: Allah's enemy tells a lie! Ubai bin Ka'b narrated to us that Allah's Apostle said, "Moses got up to deliver a sermon before Bani Israel and he was asked, 'Who is the most learned person among the people?' Moses replied, 'I (am the most learned).' Allah then admonished Moses for he did not ascribe all knowledge to Allah only. (Then) came the Divine Inspiration: 'Yes, one of Our slaves at the junction of the two seas is more learned than you.'
      Moses said, 'O my Lord ! How can meet him?' Allah said, 'Take a fish in a basket and wherever the fish is lost, follow it (you will find him at that place). So Moses set out along with his attendant Yusha' bin Nun, and they carried with them a fish till they reached a rock and rested there. Moses put his head down and slept. (Sufyan, a sub-narrator said that somebody other than 'Amr said At the rock there was a water spring called 'Al-Hayat' and none came in touch with its water but became alive. So some of the water of that spring fell over that fish, so it moved and slipped out of the basket and entered the sea. When Moses woke up, he asked his attendant, 'Bring our early meal.' (18.62)
      The narrator added: Moses did not suffer from fatigue except after he had passed the place he had been ordered to observe. His attendant Yusha bin Nun said to him, 'Do you remember (what happened) when we betook ourselves to the rock? I did indeed forget (about) the fish...' (18.63) The narrator added: So they came back, retracing their steps and then they found in the sea, the way of the fish looking like a tunnel. So there was an astonishing event for his attendant, and there was tunnel for the fish. When they reached the rock, they found a man covered with a garment. Moses greeted him. The man said astonishingly, 'Is there any such greeting in your land?' Moses said, 'I am Moses.' The man said, 'Moses of Bani Israel?' Moses said, 'Yes,' and added, 'May I follow you so that you teach me something of the Knowledge which you have been taught?' (18.66) Al-Khadir said to him, 'O Moses! You have something of Allah's knowledge which Allah has taught you and which I do not know; and I have something of Allah's knowledge which Allah has taught me and which you do not know.' Moses said, 'But I will follow you.' Al-Khadir said, 'Then if you follow me, ask me no question about anything until I myself speak to you concerning it.' (18.70). After that both of them proceeded along the seashore. There passed by them a boat whose crew recognized Al-Khadir and received them on board free of charge. So they both got on board. A sparrow came and sat on the edge of the boat and dipped its beak into the sea. Al-Khadir said to Moses, 'My knowledge and your knowledge and all the creation's knowledge compared to Allah's knowledge is not more than the water taken by this sparrow's beak.'
      Then Moses was startled by Al-Khadir's action of taking an adze and scuttling the boat with it. Moses said to him, 'These people gave us a free lift, but you intentionally scuttled their boat so as to drown them. Surely you have...' (18.71) Then they both proceeded and found a boy playing with other boys. Al-Khadir took hold of him by the head and cut it off. Moses said to him, 'Have you killed an innocent soul who has killed nobody? Surely you have done an illegal thing!' (18.74) He said, 'Didn't I tell you that you will not be able to have patience with me...(up to)...but they refused to entertain them as their guests. There they found a wall therein at the point of collapsing.' (18.75-77) Al-Khadir moved his hand thus and set it upright (repaired it). Moses said to him, 'When we entered this town, they neither gave us hospitality nor fed us; if you had wished, you could have taken wages for it.' Al-Khadir said, 'This is the parting between you and me I will tell you the interpretation of (those things) about which you were unable to hold patience...' "(18.78)
      Allah's Apostle said, "We wished that Moses could have been more patient so that He (Allah) could have described to us more about their story." Ibn 'Abbas used to recite: " 'And in front (ahead) of them there was a king who used to seize every (serviceable) boat by force.' (18.79) ...and as for the boy he was a disbeliever. "

      Also see "Stories of the prophets" from Ibn Kethir where he mentions both Yusha and Daniel. Also Sheikh ul-islam Ibn Taymiyah mentions something about Prophet Daniel (alaihi salam) in his book "Iktida siratal-mustakim....".

      Its written with a yaa sheen and an 'ayn. A dhammah on the Yaa, a sukuun on the sheen and fat-ha on the 'ayn.

      Prophet Yush'a bin Nuun servant of Muusa bin 'Imraan Messenger of Allah, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon them both.

      Goes to show the benefit of staying in the company of the righteous.

      i think Yush'a bin Nuun is Joshua in bible/tanakh, considering he was Musa(AS)'s disciple and he leaded jew people after musa's death (CMIIW)
      note: and there's a similiarity on his name
