Surah Yusuf - What Is In It For Me?

The early-bird discount for the up-coming 2-day Ramadhan seminar is ending soon. Please book your place now. The power and strength derived from this Surah is equally applicable to a young Muslim living in this modern society as it was to a great classical scholar.

Imam Ibn Al-Jawzi wrote in Saydul Khatir:

<<Once a situation compelled me to be associated with a matter that is not Islamic. My mind gave me a lot of excuses and tried to hide the sin in it from me. But, it was indeed not Islamic. I prayed to Allah and sought His help to resolve the issue. I took the Qur'an and started reading it as I had to teach Surah Yusuf on that day. When Zulekah invited Yusuf (may peace be upon him) to the ugly act, he said: “I seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, He is my Master, who has made good my residence”. I was shocked when I read this verse. I woke up all of a sudden. The veil was removed from my mind. Yusuf (AS) was a free man, but was brought to slavery forcefully. Still he recognizes the favour and calls the one who favoured him his master. I then told my mind: “Now you think, in reality you are a slave. Your Master has been helping you since your birth. He gave you a healthy body, a protective religion and many capabilities. You can never count His blessings on you. How insulting is it then to act against His commands”.>>

This is only one example of how one can learn from Surah Yusuf. Containing the best of stories, narrated by the Creator of the all the worlds, the story of Yusuf (AS) is the story of life with invaluable lessons for every one of us.
