What do you think of Zulaikha’s Obsession with Prophet Yusuf (AS)?

As we all know, she tried to seduce Prophet Joseph but ended-up marrying him years later after she broke her stone idols and became young and beautiful. I am obsessed with that story because it is so romantic. What do you personally think of that story, does it set a good example in modern society?

I've not really thought about this. But if you are interested in Prophet Yousuf's macroeconomic policies, this blog post of mine may be of interest.

How can you say this when the story in the Quran states that this is what happened? It happened, she humiliated him in public, put him in jail, tortured him, and tried to seduce him. This what the Quran states.

:salam:

I also wonder where the Nabi Yusuf series got the story from where she gets old and finally gets young again and marry the love of her life. 

But it was indeed quite romantic. Nothing like @Haji 2003's blogs :grin:

That bring said, I actually read the blog and liked it. What is missing in the analogy or the comparison with modern government is that it Yusuf's vision (عليه السلام) was divinely inspired, so prone to no error. 

By the way, do you think modern technology could help us anticipate 7 years of weather conditions?

Dunno.

But what I think is interesting is that Prophet Yusuf ((عليه السلام).) anticipated an external inflationary shock to the Egyptian economy, and he pursued a divinely inspired fiscal response to it.

You are right that his response is different from any that modern governments may design because God ordained him. However, my thinking was that such a policy (in comparison to others) was legitimated by his actions - as being ok for us to follow.

I think it's an amazing story. She was so obsessed with him, she craved him more than food and life. For years she was crying and wailing over him. Then she finds Allah and suddenly she doesn't care about him anymore. Now she needs someone to convince her to take him. I feel for her because I kind of went through something similar. I lost my mind over this girl (except she wasn't good for me). I could not have her and deteriorated. Then I get over her and my relationship with Allah is stronger alhamduliLah. If that girl comes back I would not take her. And I resent being so attached to someone other than Allah. Zulaykha RA is a beautiful creation in a similar way to Hurr RA. Hurr showed us how merciful and forgiving Allah is (oppressing the Ahlulbayt is a jillion times worse than all the sins anyone here has ever committed) but Allah has honored him. Zulaykha showed us the folly of being attached to anything other than Allah.

I don't know how many verses Quran have on prophet Yusuf. But the series is like 50 hours long, you really believe that all those 50 hours is true story?
I just don't like overdramatization for the sake of drama and to gather more views/popularity.

Every episode of the series was viewed by Ayatollahs and anything that could not be substantiated (by Holy Qur'an, Ahlul Bayt AS or history) was not allowed. Dialogue had to be changed and scenes were edited.
