Lessons from Prophet Yusuf (Joseph)

December 3, 2016

The story of Yusuf (also knon as Joseph) Peace be upon him is very encompassing. His life embodies many dimensions, many will be able to identify themselves with his life.

It is appealing to the child, it strikes a chord to the young, it gives direction to the infatuated individual and it gives hope to the victim. It has solutions for the issue of sibling rivalry, it has a message for the ruler and a source of relief for those in distress.
