    1. 24. She desired him, and he desired her, had he not seen the proof of his Lord. It was thus that We diverted evil and indecency away from him. He was one of Our loyal servants.

      This right here is interesting. In the bible version or the Torah version, the woman was the one who was drawn to Joseph. In this version, they were both drawn to one another and it was the god who kept Joseph from the woman. He wasn't a loyal servant because of his character, he was a loyal servant because that's who god made him to be.

Because of his strong personality, the gods actually had to make an equal to stop him. (Itani, T. (n.d.). Quran in English - Clear and Easy to Read.
