Does anybody know anything about the fountain that originated back in the times of Hazrat Ayub? I have been told that a bath in its water can cure many skin diseases so I am trying to find where it is in Salalah. If anybody knows about it please do let me know! thanks!

    hi

    I'v found this on wikipedia and I hope inshala it will help you.

    In Palestinian folk tradition Job's place of trial is Al-Joura, a village outside the town of Al Majdal (now Ashkelon). It was there God rewarded him with a fountain of youth that removed whatever illnesses he had, and gave him back his youth. The town of Al-Joura was a place of annual festivities (4 days in all) when people of many faiths gathered and bathed in a natural spring.

    In Turkey, Job is known as Eyyûb or Eyüp. It is believed that Job and Elias were buried at Eyyub Nebî, near Viranşehir.

    There is also a tomb of Job outside the city of Salalah in Oman.

    Additionally, the Druze community also maintains a tomb for the Prophet Job in the El-Chouf mountain district in Lebanon.

    P.S Let me know if it works!
