 Harun (AS)

Harun, or Haroon, (Arabic: ????? ) was a prophet of Islam mentioned in the Qur`an. In the Bible he is known as Aaron (Aharon in Hebrew).

Harun was the elder brother of Musa, who in the Bible is known as Moses. Along with his brother, he was a prophet who was tasked by God with saving the Israelites from the tyrannical Pharaoh. Harun was a gifted speaker, and would often speak for Musa who suffered from speech impediment. He was largely responsible with teaching the Israelites the way of worship as laid out in the Torah. He died at Mount Hor.
