Excellent insight into Surah Yusuf

Another masterpiece in the series of lectures by Dr. Hesham. Highly recommended for people interested in understanding the surah better and how it applies to challenges faced today.

The relatable themes in Surah Yusuf....

I originally purchased this but thinking that it would be a Tasfir of Surah Yusuf however I would say that this book is more styled as an accompanying explanation of the Surah. This book is perfect for anyone who struggles with reading Sura Yusuf or for those Who would like a macro perspective of the themes running through the Sura. Although the book is not what I first expected I was not disappointed; I found the narrator and the text itself to be relatable and the way it was delivered made me feel like I was gaining a new perspective. I would definitely recommend reading this book if you are trying to gain more knowledge on this Surah. I rated this book 4 out of five simply because it did not contain enough detail for me personally. I am aware however perhaps I was not the intended audience as the book does state it is not a Tasfir nor an Ayat to Ayat format. are you at.

Poor narration

The the narrator did not do justice to the story, got bored listening to it, could not stay engaged, kept waiting for the narrator to start halfway through. Had to move to the next book.

plagerism of Exodus 40-50

The Bible tells it true. Abraham &Sarah greatgrandparents of Joseph were Hebrew like his father Jacob/Isriel and mother Racheal. He was not Muslim. God said I will make My Covenant with Isaac seed not Ishmael. Don't steal Isaac's thunder
