Salaamun alaykum,

QUESTION:

Assalaamu 'Alaykum,

I know that Prophet Haroun (ASWS) had the same position to Moses (AS) as
Hazrat 'Ali (ASWS) did to Prophet Muhammad (SA'AWAWS),but Hazrat 'Ali
(ASWS) didnt have the Prophethood of course.  So what was Joshua (Yusha')
ibn Noon (AS)'s role?

ANSWER:

Hazrat Joshua Ibn Noon (AS) was the prophet who guided the Bani Israel to
their "promised land." Although Hazrat Haroon (AS) was the heir of Prophet
Musa (AS), he died before Hazrat Musa (AS). When Hazrat Musa (AS) was about
to die, it was Joshua Ibn Noon that he appointed to lead the Bani Israel
after him. 

Was-salaam,

Ali Rasheed
