There is instruction in their stories for people of intelligence. This is not a narration which has been invented but confirmation of all that came before, a clarification of everything, and a guidance and a mercy for people who believe. (Surah Yusuf, 111)

These are the words spoken by Allah SWT in a surah that is drenched in lessons.

It is a surah most requested on the nights of tahajjud by the young men who seek to learn from the wisdom of one who has strived as they strive to stay pure of sin.

It is a surah most referred to by those who study the interpretations of dreams and marveled at the extraordinary gifts of Allah SWT to this one man.

It is a surah for those who seek beauty, and realize the beauty contained therein.
