Hazrat Youza Asaf, Youza Asaph, Youza Asouph, Yuz Asaf, Yuzu Asaf, Yuzu Asif, or Yuzasaf, (Urdu: یوﺿﺍ ﺂﺼِﻓ ) was a Muslim Sufi saint[1] and preacher, whose shrine, the Roza Bal, is located in Srinagar, Kashmir.[2][3]

In 1747 CE, a local Srinagar Sufi writer, Khwaja Muhammad Azam Didamari, stated that the Roza Bal is a shrine to a foreign prophet and prince, Youza Asouph.[4]
