HAZRAT YAQOOB ALAIHISSALAM
 

Yaqoob was also known as Israil. It is said that he left for Kan'aan in the night fearing his brother Ees. Therefore, he was named as Israil which means "wanderer in the night." Yaqoob had twelve sons including Yusuf and Bin Yamin (Benjamin) from one wife and ten other sons from another wife. The descendants of all these twelve brothers were divided into the twelve tribes of Barn Israil which lived upto the time of Prophet Moses for which twelve springs flowed out of the striking of Musa's staff on the rock (Baqara, 2 :6o).
