The Zawiya is located in the southern part of Via Dolorosa, across from the Church of Zion, to the north of Bab al-Ghawanmah, one of the gates on al-Aqsa Mosque. It is believed that its establisher is the founder of the Naqshbandi order, Shaikh Muhammad Baha-ud-Din Naqshband Bukhari in the Mamluk era, to provide residence for the followers of the Naqshbandi order during their visits to Jerusalem. The Zawiya is currently inoperative. The only very little remnants of the architectural structure of the Zawiya can be seen today. It seems that Othman Bey, known as “Sufi”, built four private rooms and a mosque, before the year 1033 Hijri / 1623 AD. Later on, many rooms were added to the upper floor of the Zawiya.


The Uzbek Lodge, al-Zâwiyya al-Uzbakiyya

The Zâwiyya al-Uzbakiyya of Jerusalem is situated on the famous Dolorosa Street, a few meters to the northwest of the Harâm entrance of Bab al-Ghawanima . It is flanked on the south by the Zâwiyya al-Afghâniyya. The zâwiyya was established in the early seventeenth century by ‘Uthmân Aghâ b. Abd al-Mu’in, also called ‘Uthmân Sufî, a Sufi from Istanbul who erected a mosque and four cells for Sufi members.  From a waqfiyya, we know that these four Sufis belonged to the Naqshbandî order and that they were obliged to never be careless or beardless, nor to smoke or consume any alcoholic drink or drugs. It is also mentioned that “in the event that there are no Sufis of the Naqshbandiyya order in Jerusalem, the income of the waqf should be used to benefit four poor Sufis from the arwam (perhaps Rumi: in other words, they had to be Ottoman Turks) who possessed the same qualities. Moreover, if there are no Sufis from al-arwam in Jerusalem, then half of the waqf should go to four persons from the affâq (wandering) Sufi order, and if that too is impossible, the income should benefit four Sufis from any order.” It is evident that at this time, none of these Sufis were from Central Asia. Toward the middle of the eighteenth century, the zâwiyya was further extended and developed by Shaykh Muhammad Sâlih al-Uzbakî (d. 1731–32), who gave the lodge its Uzbek identity. Ever since then, it became known as the Zâwiyya al-Naqshbandiyya. Read more



Shaykh Abdul Aziz Bukhari (q)

The Shaykh was born in the year 1949 in Jerusalem. His father was a Naqshbandi Shaykh and the families lineage traced back to one of the greatest Scholar’s of Hadith, Imam Muhammad Ismail al-Bukhari(q). The lineage also traced back to the final Prophet(s.a.w).

The family had migrated to Jerusalem in the year 1616 from their home of Bukhara. One of his ancestors was a Grand Mufti in the times of the Ottoman Empire. They had a long standing history in the Naqshbandi tariqah and had opened a zawiya in the holy lands when settling there. They were also responsible for overseeing the holy sites in the holy lands and were responsible for teaching and guiding people. During Shaykh Abdul Aziz Bukhari’s(q) life the family home served as a haven for pilgrims who were looked after and guided around the holy lands. The home also contained a library of ancient, hand-written Islamic manuscripts. Read more

Joshua (Arabic: يُوشَعُ بْنُ نُونٍYûsha’ Ben Nûn juːʃaw bin nuːn) is not mentioned by name in the Quran, but his name appears in other Islamic literature. In the Quranic account of the conquest of Canaan, Joshua and Caleb are referenced, but not named, as two “Allah-fearing men”, on whom God “had bestowed His grace”.[47]

They said, “Moses, there is a fearsome people in this land. We will not go there until they leave. If they leave, then we will enter.” Yet the two men whom God had blessed among those who were afraid said, “Go in to them through the gate and when you go in you will overcome them. If you are true believers, put your trust in God.

— Qur’an, sura 5 (Al-Ma’ida), ayah 22–23, Haleem translation[48]

Joshua was regarded by some classical scholars as the prophetic successor to Moses (موسى‎).[49] Tabari relates in his History of the Prophets and Kings that Joshua was one of the twelve spies and Muslim scholars believe that the two believing spies referred to in the Qur’ān are Joshua and Caleb. Joshua was exceptional among the Israelites for being one of the few faithful followers of Allah.

Joshua is further mentioned in Islamic literature, and significant events from his Muslim narratives include the crossing of the Jordan river and the conquest of Bait al-Maqdis.[50]

The traditional Muslim commentary al-Jalalayn says, “Ahmad [b. Hanbal] reported in his Musnad, the [following] hadīth, ‘The sun was never detained for any human, except for Joshua during those days in which he marched towards the Holy House [of Jerusalem]’.”[51]

Muslim literature includes traditions of Joshua not found in the Hebrew Bible. Joshua is credited with being present at Moses’s death and literature records that Moses’s garments were with Joshua at the time of his departure.[52] In Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, Joshua is mentioned as Yusha’ bin Nun and is the attendant to Moses during his meeting with Khidr.[53][54][55]

Ali ibn Abi Talib, the cousin of Muhammad, was asked about the prophets that had special names. He narrates in Hadith that Yusha’ ibn Nun was known as Dhu al-Kifl.[56]


Joshua is believed by some Muslims to be buried on Joshua’s Hill in the Beykoz district of Istanbul.[57] Alternative traditional sites for his tomb are situated in Israel (the Shia shrine at Al-Nabi Yusha’), Jordan (An-Nabi Yusha’ bin Noon, a Sunni shrine near the city of Al-Salt[58][59]), Iran (Historical cemetery of Takht e Foolad in Esfahan)[citation needed] and Iraq (the Nabi Yusha’ shrine of Baghdad[58]). A local tradition combining three versions of three different Yushas, including biblical Joshua, places the tomb inside a cave in the Tripoli Mountains, overlooking the coastal town of el-Minyieh near Tripoli, Lebanon[60][61]
