Since the revelation of the Quran fourteen centuries ago, there have been numerous attempts to interpret this sura. The present study is 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 Quranic text.

The author is not only concerned with analysing the individual verses- he is equally focused on showing how various verses are interrelated, explicitly and subtly, to form a unique textual unit. He shows particular interest in unveiling subtle references and meanings that are often overlooked or missed by exegetes. Through this comprehensive study, the author elucidates why the Quran has always been firmly believed to be a unique book that could have only been inspired by Allah.

Thorough and scholarly but easy to read, this book is intended for both the general reader and the specialist. Whether you are a scholar of Quranic exegesis (tafsir), have general interest in Quranic studies and the Quranic story of Prophet Joseph, or interested in comparative religion, you will find this in-depth and detailed study of the sura of Joseph informative, enlightening, and thought-provoking. No knowledge of Arabic or the Quran is required for reading the book.
