One of the essential sources of Classical Turkish literature is the parable of Qur’an. The parable wording having important place in the Holy Qur’an affects classical poetry in terms of its content and by becoming cause of creation of various literal arts and imagery. However an apparent effect of Qur’an parables is seen on primarily masnavi. Prophet parables taking part in sources of Islamic Turkish literature causes creation of new literal discipline defined as the same word in Turkish literature. Selection of one of the parables of Qur’an and discussion of it as individual subject continues within ongoing years and it causes to write many masnavi such as skendernâme, Yusuf u Züleyha, Süleymannâme, Halilnâme in masnavi tradition. It shows the richness of this literature by the reason, ensuring that Yusuf parable, mostly liked in Prophet parables and qualified as ''ahsenü'l-kasas''(the most beautiful parable) leads to write masnavi “Yûsuf u Züleyhâ” more than fourty translations or copyright in Turkish Literature.
