Prophet Joseph (Yusuf Nabi, Yusuf Payambar, Yousuf Payamber, Hazrat Yousuf or Prophet Yusuf) is an important figure in Islam and other Abrahamic religions aka Judaism and Christianity. The story of Joseph is one of the most inspiring stories in Islamic tradition which the Quran refers to as “the most beautiful of stories.” Joseph from the Quran corresponds to Joseph (son of Jacob), a person from the Tanakh, the Jewish religious scripture, and the Christian Bible. Of all of Jacob’s children, Joseph was trusted with prophethood.
Although many prophet stories are narrated in various Surahs(chapters) of the holy Quran, the complete story of Joseph is uniquely narrated in a single chapter. The story of Joseph in the Quran is a continuous narrative and the Quran itself relates to the story’s importance in the third verse of Surah Yusuf: “and We narrate unto you best or most beautiful of stories (aḥsanal-qaṣaṣ)”.
