JOSHUA Arabic Yusha’ يوشع
Son of Nun. Not mentioned by name in the Qur’an, but is most probably “the servant” mentioned in Surah xviii. 59: “When Moses said to his servant, ‘I will not stop until I reach the confluence of the two seas, or for years I will journey on.’” (Vide al-Baizawi in loco.) Some say he is the Zu ‘l-Kifl of Surah xxi 85. [ZU 'L-KIFL.]
