One of my favourite Surah is Surah Yusuf. Although I am a non-Arab language speaker, I find that every word that is uttered when I am listening to this beautiful masterpiece, something just happens in my heart and I want to keep listening to whole 30 minutes when I am on my train while going to my institution. It is mesmerising that a holy book that is 1400 years old can tell you the biggest trials and tribulations that mostly the youth from the today face the most: sexual desires. But what Prophet Yusuf (as) does is to show how to deal with such trials and portrays how hard it can be for any person like you and I, who are young and surrounded with Fitnah. The solution, although shown effortlessly in the Quran, it is even harder to comprehend how the Prophet must have felt at that time.
Putting Allah first before anything in this world is a hard challenge for anyone, but for a true devotee of Allah it is easier because they have the true support and back up from Him. As a young adult myself, I find it fascinating and curious why more youth do not recite or refer back to Surah Yusuf when facing sexual desires or other trials and tribulations in general, because the Prophet is the clear example as seen in this Surah. Each and every Surah is life changing, but this one 100% stands out for me. -
Surah Yusuf is definitely the one that I listen to more often than not, because it relates to me as a person and the trials I might face daily.
