About Zuleika .

  • Genesis 39:7-20
  • Quran surah 12: Yusuf. Plays an important role in Islamic thought, this story being much elaborated on in Sufi and other Islamic writings. See Yusuf and Zulaikha.

Was the barren wife of Poti-phera. As such, she adopted Asenath. As she is not named in the Bible, the source for her name is the Book of Jasher.

She had a vision that her descendants would come from Joseph. As she didn't know if this would be through herself or her adopted daughter, she tried to seduce Joseph, and when this failed lied about this, and had him thrown in prison.
