Yusha' bin Noon `AlyhisSalaam was a Prophet and was appointed by Allah subhanahu wa Ta'ala like all Prophets. In the Bani Israel, the Prophets used to head the nation and after one Prophet died another one was appointed to replace him. It has been narrated in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim that Rasoolullah Sallallaahu `Alyhi wa Sallam said:
"The political leadership of the Bani Israel was held by their Prophets, when one Prophet died another Prophet would succeed him whereas there will be no Prophet after me, however there will be Successors (khulafaa) and they will be many. They asked him, "What do you order us in this regard?" He said, "Fulfill the Baya'h of the first one then that of the ones after him, give them their due, Allah Ta'ala will ask them about that which is due on them."
