Lessons from Surah Yusuf

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

This book is a wonderful read, recounting the story of prophet Yusuf (AS). This story is one of the most beloved and interesting stories of the Qur'aan. Revealed to Prophet Muḥammad ﷺ in his period of loss and mourning, and lauded by God as aḥsan al-qaṣaṣ, “the best of stories,” Sūrah Yūsuf bears relevance to modern readers of all ages. The surah begins with the dream of prophet Yusuf, where he sees the 11 stars, moon & sun prostrating to him (symbolised with the daisies in the image). This dream is a beautiful symbol that eventually comes true at the end of the story.
The book takes us through the surah, step by step. An Arabic verse, along with its English translation is given, followed by a detailed summary (tafseer) of the take home messages from each verse. What I particularly liked is how the author provides snippets of the eloquence of the Arabic language to show how Allah SWT has conveyed the story! Subhan Allah!
The books works its way through the story with great flow. It ends with "50 lessons from Surah Yusuf". A summary of morals and learning lessons obtained from the story. Overall, this is an excellent read and a book that has been well edited. The flow is brilliant, the points discussed are pertinent. This book is suitable for adults and older children alike.
