5. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony.
6. Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.
7. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them.
8. But when the world needed him most, he vanished.
9. A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar, an airbender named Aang,
10. and although his airbending skills are great, he still has a lot to learn before he’s ready to save anyone.
11. But I believe Aang can save the world.
I’m not sure if anyone has mentioned this but I think we might have missed a big connection between Isak and Yousef.
Last season the name Isak and the numbers 21:21 were significant. Julie chose the name Isak for a reason. The birth of Issac is in the book of Genesis 21. The scene at 21:21 when Even kisses Isak in the pool is supposed to be representative of that. In this context, Julie had our focus on the bible and Christianity. It was fascinating to see a story about homosexuality put in the context of religion. Something many might say are two contrasting subjects put together to form a story. But it served as a connection to Isak & his mother.
Lets look at the name Yousef. (Yusuf in english is Joseph). Both Yousef and Isak (I’ll use the skam written names for better understanding) are represented in Islam as well as prophets and family. Isak is the father of (Jacob) who is the father of Yousef. Aka Isak is Yousef’s grandfather.
Now lets look at the Quran verse which corresponds to the clip Yousef.
Yousef (12:06) - Let me mention as well that Surah (chapter) 12 of the Quran is Yousef.
And thus will your Lord choose you and teach you the interpretation of narratives and complete His favor upon you and upon the family of Jacob, as He completed it upon your fathers before, Abraham and Isaac. Indeed, your Lord is Knowing and Wise.
The verse which corresponds to today’s clip is
Jeg Dømmer Ingen (19:42)
When he said to his father: “O my father! Why do you worship that which neither hears nor sees, nor can in anything avail you?
I’m not going to put my interpretations of these verses on here, I feel it is best for someone who is Muslim to do this. @evenandsana and any other Muslims what do you think of this connection? I would really love to hear your thoughts.
I will only that add that now after learning Yousef is not Muslim, contrary to what Sana thought, we once again have two contrasting subjects kind of telling us this seasons story. A non-believer of Allah is (possibly) being connected to the Quran, similar to Isak, a believer in parallel universes and a homosexual, who was connected to the Bible. I think its still too early to tell completely understands Yousef’s connection but I don’t think Julie came up with the name Yousef randomly.
Also Isak and Yousef were both born on the 21st, while Even was born on the 12th (Maybe Surah Yousef connection?). Yousef was born on September 21st which is also the start of the Islamic New Year for 2017 (my best friend who is Muslim pointed this out to me). His birthday might be a coincidence but you know Julie, so I thought I would put this symbolism as well incase someone finds the significance that might hold.
Do we think the Yousef/Isak connection plays a role in Sana’s story and/or Even’s connection to all of this?
*disclaimer I’m just putting this information out there for discussion. I’m not saying this connection is a definite thing, just a possibility*
