Prophet Yaqub (pbuh)
In Suratul Ambiya, Ayaat 72 and 73, Allah says about Prophet Ibraheem (pbuh): "And We bestowed on him Is-haaq, and Ya'qub as an additional gift, and made them righteous. And We made them Aimma to guide (the people) by Our command; and We inspired them to perform good deeds and observe their moral obligations and pay Zakaat; and they obeyed Us".
Prophet Ish-aaq (pbuh) was the younger son of Prophet Ibraheem (pbuh). Prophet Is-haaq (pbuh) was blessed with twin sons, Isu and Prophet Ya'qub (pbuh). Prophet Ya'qub (pbuh) was much loved by his parents and this made his twin brother jealous. To prevent trouble between the brothers, Prophet Is-haaq (pbuh) advised Prophet Ya'qub (pbuh) to migrate from their home in Baytul Muqaddas to go and live with his uncle.
There Prophet Ya’qub (pbuh) worked for his uncle and married his uncle’s daughters.
With his family he returned to his home town of Baytul Muqaddas and made up with his twin brother. He then decided to settle in the land of Kanaan and Allah granted him with twelve sons and two daughters.
