So much to learn and apply in ones life

I have read the story of Yusuf AS but when I was reading it from this book it was like I have never read or heard about the story before. The shaykh has really explained it in a way that we can visualise and apply lessons in our own lives. Jazakumullahu Khairan shaykh Sajid Umar and my dear friend and sister that gave me the book as a gift.

Excellent book

Yusuf Patel
Very engaging and interactive book that reflects on the best of stories

I initially came across this book when it was in its development phase in Ramadan 2023. I was intrigued by the vision of Shaykh Sajid and I happily supported its development on Launchgood. Then, as you do, I forgot about it.

When it was released, I had intended to order some copies. I was about to order some copies and then I received 5 copies in the post. Let's just say it was a pleasant surprise.

I was taken aback by the professionalism and thought that had obviously gone into it. It contained diagrams, posed questions and was more than a linear timeline of the great story of Yusuf.

In Ramadan 2024, I was asked to deliver a talk on the lessons from the life of Yusuf. I used this book in my preparation and the feedback was positive.

I even gave two copies as prizes to 2 young Muslims who had participated in the interactive session.

This is a fantastic resource that can be used by teachers to engage young and old in the timeless lessons and reflect on the book of Allah.

I have no hesitation in recommending this book as a must resource for every bookshelf.

Jazakumullahu khairan Shaykh Sajid for producing such a wonderful resource.

The Story of Yusuf

I have just started reading this book by our beloved Sheikh Dr Sajid Umar. When I heard this book was being written I pre-ordered and waited in anticipation for it's publication, I was looking forward to learn the many lessons from the life of Yusuf AS.

I have to mention the book is printed on really good quality paper which makes the feel and reading of the book a lovely experience.

Sheikh Sajid writes in language that is easy to understand. I would say the book is suitable for any ability reader, suitable for teens and adults. Each chapter starts with an aphorism which makes it easy to follow and explore the messages being written about.

I really like how interactive the book is and how it makes the reader engage with the knowledge through the use of boxes titled "did you know," "reflect" and "transformative wisdom."

Would recommend this book to everyone.

What is "The Story of Yusuf" عليه السلام about?

The Story of Yusuf (عليه السلام) is a book that analyses and reflects in depth over the life of Prophet Yūsuf (عليه السلام). This story is so unique. It is a rare occasion in which Allāh, himself, narrated a story in its entirety. It is a gift to all Muslims. It was revealed in the Qur'ān at a time when Muslims needed comfort from the above. The Story of Yūsuf (عليه السلام) by Sh Sajid Umar explores the whole narrative in depth and leaves you in awe at the life of one of the greatest men to have ever lived.

Who is Sh Dr Sajid Umar, and why is his book significant?

Sh Dr Sajid Umar is a post-doctoral mufti, murabbī, and da'ī. He now works as a judge with the Islamic Council, and he has worked for many decades across the world to realise his dream of ignited Muslims communities that are empowered to achieve their dreams. His soft-spoken and comforting manner perfume his works and present Islam in a truly beautiful light.

Is this book suitable for readers of all levels of familiarity with Islam?

Yes! We worked hard to ensure this was the case. The book follows a dichotomous structure. The main text follows the narrative and the bulk of the lessons drawn therefrom. The footnotes provide more scholarly additional points for those who are interested and would like to know more.

What can readers expect to gain from reading "The Story of Yusuf" عليه السلام?

At the end of Surah Yusuf, Allah tells us, "In their history verily there is a lesson for men of understanding. It is no invented story but a confirmation of the existing (Scripture) and a detailed explanation of everything, and a guidance and a mercy for folk who believe."

Allah speaks the truth! There is so much to gain from studying this story, and it is a story held dear by people of understanding.
