Joseph

 

According to Muslim and Jewish sources, the body of Joseph was brought back to Palestine by the Israelites when they left Egypt under Moses. The tomb of Joseph is today located in the city of Nablus or Shechem. The older, Ottoman-era tomb was replaced by Israeli authorities, and the Israeli site was attacked by Palestinians during the Intifada. Below is a photo from the tomb as a Muslim and Jewish shrine before the more recent modifications to the site.
