Sultan Mohd Yusof Al-Haj ibni Almarhum Sultan Abu Talib(Jawi: سلطان محمد يوسف ابن المرحوم سلطان ابو طالب) (born 29 January 1951) is the 3rd and second-longest reigning Sultan of Barapai, falling behind his grandfather, Sultan Undang Dato' Abdullah ibni Almarhum Shamsu, by only four years. He is a retired policeman in the Royal Malaysian Police and is currently serving as a lecturer at Saito College, Petaling Jaya.
Yusof was born on 29 January 1951 to Sultan Abu Talib ibni Almarhum Sultan Dato' Undang Abdullah and his wife, Raja Permaisuri Pesah. His father died when he was only 11 years old, leaving him to take the throne of Barapai. Despite this however, he lived in poverty.
He traveled to Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, to seek a better life. He founded a construction company, but this fell apart after he was cheated by his business partner. Facing no other choice, he joined the Royal Malaysia Police, eventually raising to the rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police. He retired with that rank and now works as a Head of Department at Saito College, Petaling Jaya.
