Prophet Joseph is a prophet in three Abrahamic religions: Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. This story is based on the Islamic version. Prophet Joseph is the English name of Prophet Yusuf (which is rooted in Arabic and the Islamic version).
Although this is the Islamic version of the story, the name Joseph has been used because the references that the author used were using the English name. Also, the names of many other characters are mentioned in the Bible or Old Testament, but cannot be found in the Quran, so it has been used for ease and compatibility of character names.
