F605 Spring 2019 The Story of Joseph in the Qur'an
Thursdays, 2:15–3:40, Mar. 28–May 16
Instructor: Mohamed E. Hassan
You may be surprised to learn that the Bible and the Qur’an share many things in common. Join us to explore the story of the prophet Joseph as depicted in the Qur’an. Learn about Joseph’s early relationship with his brothers and their Father Jaccob, and how Joseph was betrayed and sold into slavery in Egypt. Follow Joseph’s journey through the temptation of the king's wife, his time in prison, the king's dream, and how, ultimately, Joseph became the ruler of Egypt.
