for God did send me before you to preserve life. 45:6 For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest. 45:7 And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. 45:8 So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. 45:9
I agree with you. My point was that Jews do not consider Joseph to be a prophet. They claim 48 male prophets and 7 female prophets. Joseph is not one of them. In my opinion, they are wrong for not including Joseph but that's neither here nor there. The Qur'an spends so much time on Joseph for this reason, to emphasize the fact that he is a true prophet.
