Hazrat Youza Asaf, Youza Asaph, Youza Asouph, Yuz Asaf, Yuzu Asaf, Yuzu Asif, or Yuzasaf, (Urdu: یوﺿﺍ ﺂﺼِﻓ ) (Hebrew Yasu Asaf: gatherer) was a saint  and preacher, whose shrine, the Roza Bal, is located in Srinagar, Kashmir. Local residents at the shrine believe he was a Muslim Sufi saint
Yuz Asaf is considered by some, (most notably the Ahmadiyya movement) to be the name that Jesus of Narareth assumed following his crucifixion and migration from Israel. These views however are considered to be heretical and highly controversial by Sunni Islamic scholars and authorities.
