Did Hz. Yusuf (Joseph) have any children? If, yes, what are their names?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Hz. Yusuf's marriage and his children:

The King of Egypt married Hz. Yusuf off to Zulaykha, the wife of his previous prime minister. Hz. Yusuf said to Zulaykha,

"Is this not better than what you had wanted from me?"

Zulaykha said,:

"Do not blame me. As you can see, I was a beautiful woman living in wealth. My husband had no relations with women. Allah created you in a very beautiful way. As you knew, my soul overwhelmed me."

It is also stated that Zulaykha was virgin when she married Hz. Yusuf.

Yusuf had two sons called Efraim and Misha' and a daughter called Rahmah from Zulaykha.

Efraim: Yusha' b. Nun is the grandfather of Efraim. Misha' had a son called Musa; he became a prophet before Hz. Musa (Moses) b. Imran.

The People of the Torah (Jews) think and claim that the Musa that looked for Hz. Khidr was Musa b. Misha'; thus, they make a big mistake and tell a lie.
