In hagiography: Zakka was probably a disciple of Mar Mattai, and thus he was connected with the saints of Mosul. Before becoming the successor of Mar Mattai, he inhabited a small cell at the end of the valley of Mar Abraham which later became a Yezidi shrine. He was also connected with the legend of Behnam.
