Some may ask what has Yusuf got to do with the pyramids of Giza?


In this article I will be showing by his permission, the Pyramids were built by Yusuf, or due to Yusuf's request.


First, we need to identify the TREASURE that Yusuf wants to maintain in his narration.




He said: Place me (in authority) over the treasures (khazāinuhu) of the land, surely I am a good keeper, knowing well.


THE TREASURES: khazāinuhu

What is the greatest treasure of life?



And not (is) anything but with Us (are) its treasures (khazāinuhu), and not We send it down except in a measure known. And We have sent the winds fertilizing, and We sent down from the sky water,

and We gave it to you to drink. And not you of it (are) retainers.

Treasures = WATER

To really appreciate water as the greatest gift (of life), we need to go in depth about how much water is available on Earth for land creatures (non-sea life creatures) to sustain life.


The world is mostly water. Pictured is the Pacific Ocean and by itself, it encapsulates half the world. 


What most people don’t realize is 97.5% of water on the Earth is Oceans and NOT fresh water


That leaves 2.5% Fresh Water for ALL OF NON-SEA LIFE to exist.


At birth, our bodies are approximately 75% water. We can’t live a week without FRESH WATER.


Let's break down life-sustaining fresh water a little more......


within the 2.5% Fresh Water on earth that's not sea water

  • 0.3% is accounted for as Surface Water (All the rivers on earth)

  • 70% of this Fresh water is Polar

  • and only the remaining 27.7% is groundwater and the sustainer of life


To go deeper (excuse the continual pun)

From this 27.7% groundwater (within the 2.5% of usable water)

  • 70% goes to agriculture and 

  • 22% goes to industrial usage

  • And the remaining 8% is used for drinking (Including cooking, cleaning, bathing, etc)


Yes, from the 2.5% of all water on earth and the 27.7% groundwater within it,

ONLY 8% (even less) is available for drinking yet land animals survive and prosper.


In other words, from the total amount of water on Earth, 

0.055% (8% of 27.7% of 2.5%) fresh water is the sustainer of all non-sea life.


To continue with Yusuf....

What was the dream of the King?



Joseph, O man of truth, explain to us the matter regarding seven fat cows being eaten by seven thin ones, and seven green pods and others which are dry 

Then perhaps I may go back to the people so they will know."


Fat cows eaten by thin? Green pods go dry?


What can cause this besides lack the lack of water?

Cattle, Herbage and water are all mentioned in another ayat together....



The likeness of this world's life is only as water which We send down from the cloud, then the herbage of the earth of which men and cattle eat grows luxuriantly thereby, until when the earth puts on its golden raiment and it becomes garnished, and its people think that they have power over it, Our command comes to it, by night or by day, so We render it as reaped seed; produce, as though it had not been in existence yesterday; thus do We make clear the communications for a people who reflect.


From this ayat and common knowledge, we can identify Herbage and cattle (green pods and cows) are dependent on water.


Now to link it all to Yusuf and the Pyramids......


First an important discovery.


Slaves Did not Build the Giza Pyramids:

The people were well maintained and were driven by purpose, not forced.


You may ask what has this ANYTHING to do with the Pyramids of Giza?

The River Nile actually ran pass the pyramids.


The location of the pyramids seem to be distant from any water source but the river Nile ran pass the pyramids. Over thousands of years the streams dried up and changed directions.





Control the water of a desert, All the people will come to you (as did his brothers)


The accepted purpose of the Pyramids is to house the Fourth Dynasty Egyptian pharaoh, Khufu.


Yet a tomb has never been found, nor any hieroglyphical or historical evidence.


Slaves build tombs, a purpose-built the pyramids. As shown earlier slaves did not build the pyramids but contractors who were well rewarded.


Pictured is a water pumping system, which has been tested

(and works) with the precise architectural design of the Pyramids of Giza internal system.

Water is also identified in another passage within Yusuf's narration.


12.47 He (Yusuf) said:

You shall sow for seven years continuously, then what you reap leave it in its ear except a little of which you eat. 

12:48 Then there shall come after that seven years of hardship which shall eat away all that you have beforehand laid up in store for them, except a little of what you shall have preserved:

12:49 Then there will come after that a year in which people shall have rain and in which they shall press (grapes).


We are told in 12:49 the rain returns, so in the seven years of 12.48, the struggles was only due to lack of water, hence why its return is mentioned.

(Please note: the minor pyramids around Giza could also be to store other commodities of value which would be produced due to the abundance of water, i.e wheat, etc


Yusuf also knew how a water pump system would operate to some degree.

When Yusuf was in a well had plenty of time to study the intricate underground system.

12:15 So when they had gone off with him and agreed that they should put him down at the bottom of the pit/well, and We revealed to him: You will most certainly inform them of this their affair while they do not perceive.


Pictured is an ancient well system.  While in the pit, Yusuf receives the revelation, the knowledge required to successfully maintain the treasures, WATER.

When Yusuf is eventually released from prison, he mentions to the king that he has the required knowledge to control the treasure (water). Yusuf's life is very detailed yet nowhere does it mention how he obtained the knowledge of maintaining treasures unless it was when he was down in the pit where the Quran does say he received knowledge.


12.55 He said: Place me (in authority) over the treasures of the land, surely I am a good keeper, knowing well.


Yusuf helped create the Pyramids of Giza to control the fresh water supply of Egypt.

Here is a video from Jonaid Yousaf, where he believes Imhotep could possibly be Yusuf and therefore, he could have built the pyramids.
