<strong>Well of Prophet Yusuf (A.S)</strong>

This construction is viewed just like the well in which the siblings of Yusuf (عليه السلام), out of desire, tossed him inside and from which he was tracked down by a passing procession and sold as a slave in Egypt. It is referred to locally as ‘Jubb Yussef’ and is situated close to Kibbutz Amiad in Galilee. It consists of a recovered pit with a measurement of one meter and profundity of around four meters, roofed by a dome upheld by four points of support, and encompassed by old graves.

Yusuf (عليه السلام) was the child of Yaqoob (عليه السلام). He had 11 siblings, 10 of whom were more seasoned than him. His dad adored him sincerely which made different siblings desirous and they chose to dispose of him. They took him with them to brush the creatures expecting to kill him however one of the siblings went against killing him and said it would be smarter to toss him into the lower part of a pit (jubb). Allah (ﷻ) makes reference to this in the Quran in Surah Yusuf:”One among them said: Kill not Yusuf but rather, if ye should do, throw him into the profundity of the pit; some convoy will track down him.” [12:10]

At the point when Yusuf (عليه السلام) was projected into the pit, Allah (ﷻ) let him know that he, Yusuf, would one day help his siblings to remember this incident.”Then, when they drove him off, and were in total harmony that they ought to put him in the profundity of the pit, We propelled in him: Thou shrink tell them of this deed of theirs when they know (you) not.” [12:15]

Years after the fact, when Yusuf (عليه السلام) turned into the financier and overseer of Egypt’s stockpiling chambers he met his siblings once more, helped them to remember what they had done and pardoned them.

Jubb Yussef is referenced without precedent for the center of the tenth 100 years, however the ongoing construction is of a later period. As indicated by proof of voyagers, the pit, which had been 10 meters down, had held great drinking water right up to the nineteenth 100 years. A short time later, due maybe to the seismic tremor of 1837, the pit fell and from that point forward has not been referenced as a wellspring of water. The pit and dome were situated in a quadrangle which likewise had a little mosque; this was as yet referenced by explorers in the nineteenth 100 years, however it today is gone.

In the twelfth and thirteenth hundred years, the Crusaders acknowledged the Muslim anecdote about the site. In the year 1189, Salahuddin went through the site en route to the Attack of Section of land.

There is conflict concerning the specific area of the pit wherein Yusuf (عليه السلام) was tossed in. A few pundits have set it in Jerusalem, while others say it was in Syria. Allah (ﷻ) knows best.
