Among those named in the New Testament are his mother (Mary, mother of Jesus) and four of his brothers: James (James the Just), Simeon (Simeon of Jerusalem), Joseph (Joses) and Jude (Jude, brother of Jesus).

Note that this term in Islam refers not only to the Levant, but to the Arabian region of Hijaz where the holy cities of Mecca and Medina are located.
