Chapter Summary

In the Jewish tradition, the prophet Gad is buried in the place. This Jewish tradition was lost, when the small Jewish community that had lived in the village ceased to exist. ?al?ul is mentioned in an inscription in the Sanctuary of Hebron over the central gate leading from the vestibule between chambers of Abraham and Sarah into the main mosque, as one of the villages which had been entirely endowed as a waqf for the Sanctuary alongside the villages of Dura, Kafr Burayk, Dayr ?afwan, Khursah, and Idna. On the basis of the report which was no doubt based on an inscription which Mujir ad-Din read in ?al?ul, and many building and endowment inscriptions from the time of al-Mu?a??an ?Isa, it is possible to reconstruct the inscription quite accurately.
