The story of Yusuf (Sura) is about the prophet Yusuf, translated in English as Joseph. Yusuf is one of the sons of Ya'qub (known as Jacob in the English translation) who has the talent of interpreting dreams. One day Yusuf has a dream and he narrates his dream to his father who immediately knows that Yusuf will be a prophet. His father tells him not to tell his brothers to avoid any harm. However, because of Ya'qub's loving treatment towards Yusuf, Yusuf's brothers felt jealous. They wanted to get rid of Yusuf, so their father could love them instead of Yusuf. Their initial plan was to kill Yusuf, but later they decided to throw him in a well. They lied to their father and told him that a wolf had killed him. Later, a caravan rescued Yusuf from the well, who then sold him to a man in Egypt. The man took Yusuf in and was hoping to have him as a son. Later, the man's wife tries to seduce Yusuf, but he resists. The woman seeing his resistance accuses Yusuf of wanting to harm her and demands that he should either be punished severely or sent to jail. Yusuf is sent to jail.
In the prison, Yusuf met two other men and interprets one of the prisoner's dreams. The prisoner is then released and Yusuf asked the prisoner to mention his talent to the king. One day, the King had a dream, and the prisoners who had been released mention Yusuf. He interprets the King's dream, which is about Egypt having a seven-year drought. To reward him, the King requests his release from jail and the King also investigates his case. The wife who tried to seduce Yusuf testifies that he was innocent, and the truth unveils. Yusuf is given authority in Egypt.
During the seven-year drought, Yusuf's brothers visit Egypt to get food for their family. Upon seeing his brothers, Yusuf recognizes them though they did not recognize him. Yusuf, in a high position of authority, requests that the next time they come, they bring their youngest brother Benjamin or benyameen with them. When the brothers returned with their youngest brother, Yusuf takes him aside and tells him his identity. Yusuf plots a theft case where his youngest brother is found guilty of theft when he is truly innocent and is detained from his family, so he could stay with him. Later, when the father and brothers face poverty they come back to Yusuf and Yusuf then helps them and reveals his identity asking them to come and live with him.

Rasulullah saw bersabda:
“Ajarkan surat Yusuf pada budak-budakmu, karena seorang muslim yang membaca dan mengajarkannya pada keluarga dan budaknya, Allah akan memberi kemudahan saat sakratul mautnya dan memberinya kekuatan agar sebagai seoramg muslim tidak dihasud.” (Tafsir Majmu’ul Bayan)
Imam Ja’far Ash-Shadiq (sa) berkata:
“Barangsiapa yang membaca surat Yusuf setiap hari dan setiap malam, ia akan dibangkitkan pada hari kiamat keindahan wajahnya seperti keindahan Yusuf, tidak ditimpa azab besar pada hari kiamat, dan ia termasuk ke dalam hamba-hamba Allah yang sholeh dan pilihan.” Beliau juga mengatakan bahwa penyataan ini juga termaktub di dalam kitab Taurat.
