"O you who believe, obey Allah and obey His Messenger and those amongst you who are given supreme authority (by Allah)." [Holy Qura'an](4:59)
Prophet Alyasa a.s.
Prophet Alyas'a a.s bin Shanat a.s who is also one of the messengers of Bani Israel invited the people to the religious laws of Hazrat Moosa a.s , cured the sick people, gave life to dead and also solved many other problems. In Hebrew he is called Alyasha or Elisha and in Arabic he is called Alyas'a.
He appeared as a prophet in the year 1056 B.C. He was among the students of hazrat Ilyas a.s who granted him the trusteeship of messengers. They passed together the river of Jordan. Later he witnessed the ascension of hazrat ilyas a.s to the heaven.
Just like hazrat Moosa a.s.he split the river when he hit the river with hazrat Ilyas a.s turban. The students of hazrat Ilyas a.s sighted the miracle of hazrat Alyas'a and comprehended that he is the successor of hazrat Ilyas a.s.
At the time of his death the king of Bani Israil known as Yahavash visited him bedside to take advice about his successor. Alyasa ordered to bring some arrows and a bow. He put the arrow on the bow string and told Yahavash to put hands on his hands and shoot the arrow and to follow wherever it proceeded through which he would overcome his hardships and rule as the king of Damascus.
Yahavash shot the arrow three times. Alyas'a said that this is the sign that three times he would dominate them. Saying this he died.
Hazrat Yooshe a.s.
He is among the great prophets of Allah. He was the son of hazrat AFRAIM IBN YUSUF IBN YAQUB IBN IS'HAQ IBN IBRAHIM. Yooshe a.s in the age of 97 became the successor of hazrat Moosa a.s.
Hazrat Yooshe a.s lived for 120 years. He had a broad chest, middle height and spoke Hebrew language. For 23 years he preached his people and invited people to the religion of Hazrat Moosa a.s.
Allah commanded Yooshe a.s to lead the Bani-Israel to pass from the river of Jorden and guide them to the holy place and Canaan(Canaan is an ancient term for a region roughly corresponding to present-day Palestine including the West Bank, Jordan, southern and coastal Syria and Lebanon continuing up to the border of modern Turkey.)and Baithul Moqaddas(Jerusalem)among them.
He guided the followers of Hazrat Moosa according to the religious laws and ways taught by Hazrat Moosa a.s.
After crossing river Jorden they reached Jaljaal where he circumcised all men .After six days they conquered the city Ariha.
Prophet Yooshe a.s said this is the sanctuary of God. He advised to be humble and seek forgiveness for their sins while entering the sanctuary of Ariha. The scholars of Bani Israel followed the orders of hazrat Yooshe a.s and the ignorant people among them acted just opposite his commands. All the 74000 of ignorant people were killed when God inflicted disease of plague on them.
At the time of Yooshe a.s death he called the chieftains of Bani Israil and told them his will and he spoke. "O people you witnessed the blessings of God, thank His blessings and all worship one and single God and never dignify and praise other than him.
His followers replied "O Yooshe we never leave the obedience of God and we never accept the other gods other than Almighty. At that time Yooshe a.s wrote these words in a book and kept beside the book of religious laws. He lifted a big stone and told his people "this the witness among all the tribes" and bid them farewell. And after that he got ill and in 1693 BC he passed away.
Ilyas a.s hit the river with his turban and the river broke down into two. Speaking with
Alyas'a he entered the river .Later a means of riding descended from heaven when Hazrat Ilyas a.s rode upon it and ascended to heaven. Alyas'a along with the other companions and pupils watched the ascension of hazrat Ilyas a.s till he disappeared from their sight. Hazrat Qizr a.s was appointed to guide the people in the sea and oceans.
