Look Inside

The Prophet Joseph in the Qur’an, the Bible and History


The Qur’anic sura (chapter) of Yusuf (Joseph) deals almost entirely with the story of this noble Prophet, his brothers, and their father Prophet Jacob. Since the revelation of the Qur’an fourteen centuries ago, there have been numerous attempts to interpret this sura. The present study is not a review of previous exegetical attempts, but a genuinely new look at the sura – including careful examination of the historical background of its story and detailed comparison with the corresponding Biblical narrative. While referring to interpretations from classical exegetical works, this book offers new insights into the meanings and magnificence of this Qur’anic text.
