Yusuf and His Brothers
Elma Ruth Harder


This retelling of the Qur'anic story from  Surah Yusuf of Prophet Yusuf, peace be upon him, and his brothers portrays the essential story for young readers. Prophet Yusuf was specifically chosen by Allah to teach humanity lessons in patience and perseverance.  He was endowed with exceptional beauty and knowledge, and though he encountered many difficulties, his faith did not waver. From the depths of the well where his brothers threw him, to the times when those same brothers came to him in Egypt to buy grain for their hungry families, from prison to palace, this story shows Prophet Yusuf as a model of righteous behaviour and sincere devotion to God.  Black and white illustrations.
