The story of Yusuf and Zulaikha is a Hebrew story narrated in the Holy Quran in a Surah titled ‘Yusuf’. After Islam was introduced in Iran, many literary scholars focused their attention on it, and different narratives of it were written in the form of poems with various meters. Toghanshahi's Yusuf and Zulaikha and Jami's Yusuf and Zolaikha are among the most important stories of Yusuf and Zulaikha currently available to knowledge enthusiasts. They are two different narrations of this story. Mohammad Kazem Saheb Isfahani, also known as Masih al-Bayan, one of Alamgir's era poets, travels from Iran to India and, while employed as a physician in the royal hospital, due to his talent in poetry, composes and leaves behind several books. Sabahat Yousefi is one of his masnawis that he composed following Bahr Khafif meters. In this study, in addition to introducing this work, this narration will be compared with the narration of Yusuf and Zulaikhai attributed to Ferdowsi. The results showed that there is a clear difference between these two works in terms of the type of narration, language, meter, and literary themes. This study is fundamental in terms of type. The aforementioned text will be analyzed using the qualitative content analysis method.
