The wife of the chief minister, Zulaikha, watched Joseph from day to day. She sat with him, talked with him, listened to him, and her wonder increased over the passage of time. Joseph was soon confronted with his second trial. The chief minister's wife, Zulaikha, could not resist the handsome Joseph, and her obsession with him caused her sleepless nights.

She waited until her husband left the home. You have the most handsome of faces. Undeterred, Zulekha presses on. Your eyes are so beautiful.
And she certainly determined [to seduce] him, and he would have inclined to her had he not seen the proof of his Lord. And thus [it was] that We should avert from him evil and immorality. Indeed, he was of Our chosen servants. Zulekha, like you and I, was not. She allowed her desires to overcome her love for Allah. Zulekha eventually diagnoses the root cause of her disease when she says:.
Yet I claim not that my soul [nafs] was innocent -- surely the soul of man incites to evil -- except inasmuch as my Lord had mercy; truly my Lord is All-forgiving, All-compassionate. Her Nafs. Our Nafs. A beast inside each and every one of us that we must tame. An unbridled nafs will lead us to prefer all carnal desires over the love of what Allah and His Messenger Muhammad peace be upon him and his family call us to.
Doing so will cause us ruin in this world, and in the next. Yet a nafs that has been tamed will learn to prefer Allah and His Messenger peace be upon him and his family over all else, causing happiness in this world and in the next, as Allah tells us:. By the soul, and That which shaped it.
Prosperous is he who purifies it, and failed has he who seduces it. The Messengers of Allah [Peace and blessings be upon them] taught us the cognizance of our souls, and gave us the tools to control our caprice, while reminding us that success can only come by the mercy of Allah [May He be glorified].

Popular Latest Category Popular in the last 90 days.By srsumerJune 21, in Off-Topic. Here's a pretty long, but pretty interesting Iranian movie about Prophet Yusuf. It seems to go into a lot of detail from the time of his birth until he's old. Actually I'm not done watching it yet. I started about 2 months ago and am still watching it.
I watch about 3 parts a week on average now that school's out for me. Anyway, here's the link: Prophet Yusuf Movie. So far from the movie he has gotten married to a young lady not Zulaikha and they have a daughter If you follow the series to the end, you will realise that he eventually marries Lady Zulaykha too, after she repents, and miraculously becomes young and beautiful again.
This is years after her husband putiphar dies. Everything I wrote is based on the series I watched, anything which I wrote which was correct was because Allah swt allowed me to gaint the knowledge of it and anything which I wrote which may have been incorrect inshaAllah I will be forgiven for.

Yusuf (Joseph) - Zulaikha's Life Afterwards
Rate this topic 1 2 3 4 5. Recommended Posts. Report post. Posted June 21, Salam everyone.Taaki hamare bhaiyo ke ilm me izafa hota rahe aur sath hi sath aap bhi sawab paane me samil ho jaye.
Hazrat yaqub alaihisalam hazrat ishaaq alaihisalam ke beite aur hazrat ibhrahim alaihisalam ke poute he. Hazrat yaqub alaihisalam chunki Hazrat yusuf alaihissalam se sabse zyada mohabbat karte the aur unke baad hazrat bin yamin se, to dusre bhaiyo ko us par hasad aaya.
Hazrat yusuf alaihissalam se sabse zyada mohabbat hone ki wajah ye thi ki aap ko malum ho chuka tha. Hazrat yaqub alaihisalam ne farmaya ki beshaq muje uske le jane se gam hota he to me darta hu ki tumhari gaflat me usko koi bhediya na kha jaaye. Wo jo bahot takatwar ho. Ki saamne ek bhai ko bhediya kha jaye, agar eysha ho jaye to ham kishi kaam ke nahi honge, hamare hote hue bhediye ki kya majal he ki hamare bhai ko kha jaaye.? Jaha ham doud me mukabla karenge aur unt wageira doudane aur dusri jangi tarabeer me mukabla karenge.?
Unhone kaha bhai muje pyaar va mohabbat se sath le jana chahte he, is liye me unke sath jarur jaunga. Hazrat yusuf alaihissalam ne farmaya ay mere bhai thaher ja, muje qatl na kar, qatl karna azeem jurm he. Nabuwwat ke eylaan se pehle hi apne bhaiyo ko nasihat karke qatl jeishe azeem jurm se bacha rahe he. Ab bhi aashan kaam karo, qatl na karo. Yahuda ne kaha ye karib hi kuwa he usme feink do ya to khud hi mar jayega ya koi kafile wale gujre to ushe nikaal kar sath le jayenge.
Unhone kaha ab tum chand, suraj, aur taaro ko bulao, wahi tumhari imdad karenge. Aap ko ek doul me daal kar kuwe me latka diya gaya jab aadhe fasla tak doul pahonchi to upar se choud diya gaya us khyaal se ki zour se girne par mar jayega.
Hazrat yaqub alaihisalam ne jab Hazrat yusuf alaihissalam ko bhaiyo ke sath rawana kiya to wo kameez aap ne unke gale me batoure taawiz daal di.
Stories of The Prophets
Aapne farmaya ye ilteja sirf Hazrat yaqub alaihisalam ke khuda ki taraf he. Hazrat yusuf alaihissalam kuwe se bahar kis tarah nikle aur aap ko baadshahat kis tarah mili wo wakiyaat inshaallah aage aayenge. Hazrat yaqub alaihisalam ne kameez ko lekar apne chehra par dala aur rone lage yaha tak ki kameez ke khun se aapka chehra khun aaludah ho gaya. Hazrat yusuf alaihissalam ka chehra bahot haseen tha, baal ghungariyale, aankhe moti va khubsurat, tamam aaza jism ke tamam hisse me azeeb kism ka eytedaal paya jata tha.
Kuwe par aaye to deikha ki Hazrat yusuf alaihissalam kuwe me to nahi, idhar-udhar deikha to ek kafila nazar aaya unse puchne par pata chala. Hazrat yusuf alaihissalam bhi bhaiyo ke dar se khamosh the, aapne bhi na bataya ki me inka bhai hu gulam nahi, aakhirkaar aapko 20 ya 22 khote dirhamo se beich diya gaya. Wo gulam aap ko aap ke bhaiyo ke paas le aaya aur sab soye hue the, unme se ek bheid-bakariyo ki hifazat kar raha tha, jo jaag raha tha.
Hazrat yusuf alaihissalam ne kaha me tumhe alwidai-salam karne aaya hu jise tum kabhi na deikh sakoge. Hazrat yusuf alaihissalam ek ek bhai par mohabbat se sar juka kar bouse leite hue gale mil rahe the. Tumne hame bhi aur apne aap ko halaq kar diya, tajar Hazrat yusuf alaihissalam ke paas aaya. Hazrat yusuf alaihissalam ko misr me laya gaya to aapko bazar me bahesiyat gulam beicha jane laga to aapke husn va jamal ki wajah se kimmat badhti chali gayi.Jacob awakens from a startling nightmare which he hesitantly attributes to his sons.

The Many Faces of Zulaikha. Hana Ayoob Khan. Of those that have survived, the Haft Awrang, commonly known as the Freer Jami, is a lavishly decorated volume created during the 16th century that documents and illustrates a series of seven poems written by the famous mystical author Jami Simpson One of these seven poems is the popular love story of Yusuf and Zulaikha, an epic that reframes previous traditions and the Quranic story through the Sufi mystic lens.
For the purpose of this essay, the focus will be on the role and representation of Zulaikha from three perspectives. This is partly due to the fact that the Quran tends to be concise and does not give much detail in its narrative. In the Quranwhich is considered infallible by Muslims, it is the Aziz who buys Yusuf; Zulaikha is the wife of the Aziz of Egypt. Whereas in Jami, the roles are swapped and Zulaikha is the one who buys Yusuf at a great cost. The change adds dramatic effect, but it also paints Zulaikha as a much more involved protagonist.
She is the one who initiates buying Yusuf.
In fact it may be reflected that the Aziz plays a far more prominent role in the Quranic version, whereas Jami's story, with its different focus, switches the weight onto Zulaikha, with the Aziz as a mere plot device that allows for Yusuf and Zulaikha's ultimate union. She is seen as exemplary in her love, someone that women should look up to.
He frames the story so that she is the primary lens through which the story is going to be narrated. In the Islamic tradition, this is an honour reserved almost exclusively for the best of humankind, mainly the prophets of God. By having Gabriel intervene, Jami reminds the reader that she was chosen for her life of love and suffering by a higher authority; that what she does and what happens are preordained and out of her control. This removes some of the blame from her future actions.
She wants to preserve her virtue and virginity for the one man she loves. Though her later attempts are anything but virtuous, her saving grace is that she does not deter from being faithful to Yusuf him alone. But as the story goes, Yusuf does not give into her numerous attempts to seduce him. When Zulaikha despairs because of her failed attempts, her nurse is sent to Yusuf to mediate and convince Yusuf on her behalf. Though he is grateful for all that she has done for him, he fears God and does not wish to cause the Vizier any harm or bring shame to his household Come on now!
My Lord has provided an honourable abode for me so how can I do something so evil? Such wrong-doers never prosper. Both Figure 1 and Figure 2 illustrate when Zulaikha's initial efforts to seduce Yusuf fail, and she starts concocting other ways to fulfill her wishes.
In this scene, she lures him into a garden where he is to be entertained by a group of beautiful women. Hoping that Yusuf would desire at least one of them, Zulaikha plans to change places with the woman he chooses to spend the night with. Contrary to her plans, Yusuf spends the night preaching to them about divine wisdom Jami In the illustration, the incident takes place in front of a large garden pavilion not mentioned in the text.
Both paintings use the same materials - opaque watercolour, ink and gold on paper. Both portray Yusuf with a golden flame around his head to show his prophetic status, and portray a hill in the background. Freer Gallery of Art. Freer Sackler. Google Cultural Institute. Ayoob Khan 5 Figure 2: Jami.
