Jesus in Iran

"In the Days of Hazrat Isa (Jesus), when lepers were cured by him, they, on being admitted among the healthy people, were known as Asaph. Thus Hazrat Isa, who cured lepers, also came to be known as Yuz-Asaph, for he not only cured them but gathered them under his merciful protection."
