  • Nabi Ayoub is the prophet Job who came from Damascas and died in Salalah. This is one of his claimed tombs. It is in the mountains behind Salalah and is worth the journey - the mountains must be beaut...  more »
  • Everyone knows a bad news. But in Islam, job is the Prophet for patience as he endured the tests of God without complaint and all things had become good at the end. Unfortunately, the small Grove was heavily polluted.

  • Drive is great as it is only half an hour from the city. But nothing much to do once you reach there. Maintained well though.
  • Prophet Ayub’s tomb is located in Beit Zarbij, 27 kilometers from salalah in the mountains. Beside it is an ancient praying place and footprints embedded in stone. Nearby is a spring called Sharsate that, according to legend gushed out after the Prophet Ayub prayed to God. Prophet Ayub’s tomb is 4 metres long and 1.5 metres high. The Prophet was cited 4 times in the Holy Qur'an and in the first chapter of the Holy Scriptures Of Ayub in the Old Testament. It is said that his native country was the land of Aouss which,according to the tenth chapter of Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament, was located towards Safar (Dhofar) the Tomb area has a big parking space, a mosque, rest rooms & wheel chair accessible parking also
  • It's a long drive up here, but there is a beautiful view. Unfortunately, the tomb itself is a little underwhelming. You will need to remove your shoes and ladies should be appropriately covered.
  • Half an hour drive from me Salalah, a really wonderful visit of this revered Prophet.
  • this place is vary beautiful & historical
