YOUSEF Family History

Recorded as Yousef and Yusuf, this is the original arabic form of the famous biblical name Joseph. The descent is from Ibrahim (Abraham) the ancestor and revered prophet of the Arabs. According to the the Islamic Names Survey first published in 1922, in early records his sons Ishaq (Isaac) and Yaqab (Jacob) as well as Jacob's son Yusuf (Joseph) appear regularly amongst the venerated early prophets. In the Muslim etymology, the names of these early prophets are surrounded by an aura of blessing and protective power, which no doubt contributed to their popularity.
