Alif L'ãm Rã. These are the verses of the Book that make things clear.[1] We have revealed this Qur’an in the Arabic language so that you (Arabs) may understand.[2] We relate to you the best of stories through this Qur’an by Our revelation to you (O Muhammad), though before this you were one of those who did not know.[3]


The Qur'an is revealed in the Arabic language

This is the narrative of that time, when Yüsuf (Joseph) said to his father: “O my father! In a dream I saw eleven stars, the sun and the moon - I saw them prostrate themselves before me!”[4] He replied: “My dear little son! Do not say any thing about this dream to your brothers, lest they plot an evil scheme against you; for Shaitãn is an open enemy to human beings.[5] It will happen, as you have seen in your dream, that you will be chosen by your Rabb for His work. He will teach you how to interpret visions, and will perfect His favor upon you and the children of Ya'qoob (Jacob), as He perfected it upon your forefathers Ibrãhïm (Abraham) and Ishãq (Isaac) before you. Surely your Rabb is Knowledgeable, Wise.[6]


Story of the Prophet Yüsuf (Joseph)

Indeed in the story of Yüsuf and his brothers, there are signs for inquirers.[7] This is how the story begins: his step brothers held a meeting and said to one another: “This Yüsuf and his brother (Benjamin) are loved more by our father than us, even though we are a group of ten and can help him more than them. In fact, our father is clearly mistaken.[8] Let us kill Yüsuf or throw him out to some far-off land so that the attention of our father turns exclusively towards us, after that, we may again become righteous people!”[9] At this one of them said: “Do not kill Yüsuf, but if you must, throw him into some dark well, so that he may be picked up by some passing by caravan."[10]


In this story there are lessons for the inquirers

After this meeting, they asked their father: “O our father! Why is it that you do not trust us with Yüsuf, though we are his sincere well-wishers?[11] Send him with us tomorrow, that he may play and enjoy himself. We shall take good care of him."[12] Their father said: “I will be worried if you take him away, for I fear lest a wolf should eat him up while you are off your guard ."[13] They said: “If a wolf could eat him despite our number, then surely we would be worthless people!”[14] When after such persistence they were able to take him away, they resolved to throw him into a dark well. We revealed this (to Yüsuf) : “A time will come when you will admonish them about this act of theirs, now they do not perceive its consequences."[15]


The stepbrothers of Yüsuf asked their father to send him with them on a hunting trip and threw him in a dark well

At nightfall they return to their father, weeping.[16] They said: “Father! We went off to compete in racing with one another, and left Yüsuf by our belongings, and a wolf ate him ! But you will not believe us even though we are telling the truth."[17] As proof they brought his shirt stained with false blood. “No!” He cried, “Your souls have tempted you to evil. I need good patience! Allah Alone can help me bear the loss you are speaking of."[18]


They told their father that Yüsuf was eaten by a wolf

On the other side, a caravan passed by, and sent a water carrier who let down his bucket into the well. Seeing Yüsuf in it, he shouted with joy: “Good news! I found a young boy." They concealed him like trade merchandise. But Allah knew what they did.[19] They (brought him to Egypt and) sold him for a petty price, a few dirhams (silver coins), they had such a low estimation of him.[20]


A caravan kidnapped him, brought him to Egypt, and sold him

The Egyptian who bought Yüsuf said to his wife: “Be kind to him. He may prove useful to us, or we may adopt him as a son." Thus We established Yüsuf in the land and arranged to teach him the understanding of affairs. Allah has full power over His affairs, though most people do not know.[21] When he reached maturity, We bestowed on him wisdom and knowledge. Thus do We reward the righteous.[22]



The Egyptian who bought him was a good man

Now, the lady of the house (his master's wife) attempted to seduce him. She bolted the doors and said: “Come!” He replied: “May Allah protect me from this! My lord has provided me with good residence. Should I betray his trust? Such wrongdoers shall not prosper."[23] She advanced toward him, and he would have advanced towards her had he not seen a sign from his Rabb. Thus did We shield him from indecency and immodesty, for he was one of Our chosen, a sincere devotee.[24] They both rushed to the door. In order to stop him she caught his shirt, and as a result she ripped his shirt from behind. At the door they met her husband. Seeing him she cried: “What punishment does someone who intended evil against your wife deserve except imprisonment or a painful chastisement?”[25] Yüsuf said: “It was she who attempted to seduce me." At this - one accusing the other - one member of her own family bore witness saying: “If his shirt is ripped from the front, then she is speaking the truth and he is lying.[26] But if it is ripped from behind, then he is speaking the truth and she is lying."[27] So when he (her husband) saw that Yüsuf's shirt was ripped from behind, he said to her: “It is one of the tricks of you women! Your trick was mighty indeed! [28] O Yüsuf, say no more about this, and you (O my wife) seek forgiveness for your sins, for you were indeed the wrongdoer."[29]


His master's wife tried to seduce him but Allah saved him

The women of the city began to talk about this incident, saying: “The wife of Al-Aziz has seduced her young slave, for she has fallen madly in love with him. In fact, we see her in manifest error."[30] When she heard about these remarks, she invited them and prepared for them a banquet, and gave each of them a knife. When they were engaged in cutting fruit, she asked Yüsuf to come out before them. When they saw him, they were so amazed that they cut their hands and exclaimed spontaneously: "Good Lord! He is no human being; he is but a noble angel."[31] She said: “Well, this is he about whom you blamed me. No doubt I seduced him, but he escaped. If he doesn’t do what I say, he will certainly be thrown into prison and be disgraced."[32] Yüsuf said: “O my Rabb! I would rather go to prison than that to which they invite me; and unless You ward off their cunning snare from me, I may, in my youthful folly, feel inclined towards them and become one of the ignorant."[33] Thereupon his Rabb granted his prayer and warded off their cunning snare from him; surely He hears all and knows all.[34] Still, even after all the evidence they had seen (of his innocence and the guilt of their women), they thought it proper to send him to prison for a while.[35]


The women of the town started pointing fingers at the wife of Al-Aziz. As a result, she invited them to a banquet and asked Yüsuf to appear before them

Two young men also entered the prison along with him. One day one of them said: “I saw in a dream that I was pressing wine." The other said: “I saw in a dream that I was carrying bread on my head, of which birds were eating." Tell us the interpretation of these dreams, for we see that you are a man of virtue.[36] Yüsuf replied: “I will, with Allah’s permission, tell you the interpretation of these dreams before you are served the food you eat, this is part of the knowledge which my Rabb has taught me. In fact, I have forsaken the faith of those people who do not believe in Allah and even deny the hereafter.[37] I follow the faith of my forefathers Ibrãhïm (Abraham), Ishãq (Isaac) and Ya'qoob (Jacob). It is not fitting that we attribute any partners with Allah. It is the grace of Allah on us and on mankind (that He has not made us the servants of anyone else other than Himself), yet most of the people are not grateful. [38] O my fellow inmates! Tell me what is better; many different lords or one Allah, the Irresistible?[39] Those you serve besides Him are nothing but mere names which you and your forefathers have invented, for which Allah has revealed no sanction. The Command belongs to none but Allah, Who has ordained that you worship none but Him. That is the true faith, yet most of the people do not know.[40] O my fellow inmates! (Here is the interpretation of your dreams), one of you will be released and serve wine to your lord (the king of Egypt); and the other will be crucified and the birds will eat from his head. That's how your cases will be decided concerning which you inquired (that is the answer to your question)."[41] Then, to the one who he thought would be released, he said: “Mention me to your lord." But Shaitãn made him forget to mention (Yüsuf) to his lord, so he remained in the prison a few more years.[42]


Two prison inmates had dreams and asked Yüsuf for interpretation

Yüsuf's address to his fellow inmates

One day the king of Egypt said: “I saw seven fat cows in my dream which were eaten up by seven lean cows, likewise I saw seven green ears of corn and seven others that were dried up. O chiefs! Tell me the meaning of my dream if you can interpret the dreams."[43] They replied: “Confused nightmares! We are not skilled in the interpretation of dreams."[44] Thereupon one of the two inmates who was released remembered Yüsuf after all that time, and he said: “I will tell you its interpretation; just send me to Yüsuf in the prison."[45] He came to Yüsuf in the prison and said: “O Yüsuf the truthful one! Tell us the meaning of the dream of seven fat cows which are eaten up by seven lean ones and of seven green ears of corn and seven others dried up: so that I may return to the people and let them know the meaning of this dream."[46] He replied: “You will cultivate for seven consecutive years. During this time you should leave the corn you reap in the ear, except what may be sufficient for your food.[47] Then, after that period, there will come upon you seven hard years which will eat away all that you had stored except a little which you may have specifically set aside. [48] After that period will come a year of abundant rain, in which the people will squeeze the juice."[49]


The King of Egypt had a dream and asked for its interpretation

Yüsuf's interpretation of the King's dream

The king said: “Bring this man to me." When the messenger came to Yüsuf, he said: “Go back to your lord and ask him about the case of those women who cut their hands. Indeed my Rabb has full knowledge of their snare."[50] The king questioned those women, saying: “What do you say about the incident when you attempted to seduce Yüsuf?” They replied: “God forbid! We know of no evil on his part." The `Aziz’s wife said: “Now that the truth has come to light, it was I who attempted to seduce him. In fact he is absolutely truthful."[51] Yüsuf said, "By this inquiry I meant to let him (Al-Aziz) know that I did not betray him in his absence, and that Allah does not let the snare of the treacherous succeed."[52]


The King of Egypt heard the case of the women and found that Yüsuf was innocent

“Not that I am free from sin - man’s soul is prone to evil, except the one to whom my Rabb has shown mercy, certainly my Rabb is Forgiving, Merciful".[53] The king said: “Bring him to me; I will take him for my special service." When Yüsuf had a talk with the King, he said: “From now on, you have an honorable place with us, and you will enjoy our full confidence."[54] Yüsuf said: “Place me over all the resources of the land. Certainly I know how to manage; I have the necessary knowledge."[55] Thus We established Yüsuf in the land to live therein in any way he wished. We bestow Our mercy on whom We please and We do not let the reward of good people go to waste.[56] Yet the reward in the hereafter will be even better for those who believe and are righteous.[57]



Yüsuf's appointment as a King's cabinet member

Several years later when the famine started and there was no food available outside of Egypt, Yüsuf’s brothers came to Egypt for food and entered his office. He recognized them but they did not recognize him.[58] When he had given them their due provisions and they were about to leave, he said: “Bring your half brother to me next time. Do you not see that I give full measure and provide the best hospitality?[59] But if you do not bring him, you shall have no grain, nor shall you even come near me again."[60] They replied: “We shall certainly try our best to bring him from his father. This we will surely do."[61] Yüsuf told his servants to put his brothers' money into their saddlebags secretly so that they should know about it only when they reach their family, so that they might come back."[62]


Yüsuf's brothers came to Egypt to get food and grain

Yüsuf asked them to bring Benjamin (Yüsuf's younger brother)

When Yüsuf's brothers returned to their father, they said: “Father! Grain is henceforth denied us unless we take our stepbrother with us; please send our brother with us so that we may get our measure; we take full responsibility for his safety."[63] He said: “Should I trust you with him as I once trusted you with his brother? Allah is the best protector and He is the Most Merciful of the mercy-givers."[64] When they opened their baggage, they discovered that their money had been returned to them. “Father!” They cried with joy, "What more can we ask for? Here is our money returned back to us. We will buy more food for our family, we will take good care of our brother and obtain an extra camel load of grain. This way, it will be easy to add another camel load of grain."[65] Ya'qoob (Jacob) replied: “I will never send him with you until you pledge in the name of Allah that you will surely bring him back to me unless you become helpless." And when they had given their pledge, he said: “Allah is the Witness over the pledge you made."[66] Then he said; “My sons! Do not enter the capital city of Egypt through one gate, enter from the different gates. Not that I can avail you aught against Allah; this advice is just a precaution, because none can accurately judge except Allah. In Him do I put my trust and in Him let all the reliant put their trust."[67] When they entered the city as their father had advised them, it did not avail them against the will of Allah. Of course, Ya'qoob did his best to avert the fear he had in his heart. Indeed he possessed the knowledge which We had given him, but most people do not know.[68]


They asked their father to send Benjamin with them in order to get more grain

Ya'qoob's advice to his sons

When they entered to Yüsuf, he called his brother (Benjamin) alone to himself, and said: “In fact, I am your brother (Yüsuf), now you need not grieve at what they have been doing." [69] While Yüsuf was arranging the loading of their provisions, he put the royal drinking cup into his brother’s pack. Later on a crier called out: “O people of the caravan! You must be thieves."[70] They turned back and asked: “What have you lost?”[71] The royal servants said: “We have lost the King’s drinking cup. (The leader of the royal servants added) and the one who brings it, will be awarded a camel-load of corn, I guarantee it."[72] Yüsuf’s brothers said: “By Allah! You should know, by our behavior during our stay here, that we did not come here to make mischief in the land and we are no thieves."[73] The royal servants said: “What should be the punishment of the thief, if you are liars?” [74] They replied: “The punishment of he in whose pack you find the royal cup will be to make him your bondsman, that’s how we punish wrongdoers."[75] After this Yüsuf first began to search the packs of his stepbrothers before the pack of his own brother (Benjamin). Finally he took it out of his brother’s pack. Thus We directed Yüsuf. He could not seize his brother under the King’s law; but Allah willed otherwise. We exalt in ranks whom We please, He is the One Whose knowledge is far greater than the knowledge of all others.[76] At this accusation, his brothers remarked: “This is not strange if he has committed a theft - for his brother also committed a theft before him." Hearing this, Yüsuf suppressed his feelings and did not reveal anything to them - he simply whispered to himself: “What a bad people you are! You are accusing me of something, the truth of which Allah knows best."[77] - They said: “O noble prince! He (Benjamin) has a very aged father who may not be able to survive without him, so please take one of us instead of him. We see that you are one of those who do good to others."[78] Yüsuf replied: “God forbid that we should seize other than the one with whom we found our property: if we did so then indeed we would be unjust."[79]


Yüsuf introduced himself to his brother Benjamin and schemed to retain him

Benjamin was accused of stealing so that he could be retained

When they lost their hope of moving Yüsuf, they went aside to confer in private. The eldest of them said: “You know that your father had taken a solemn pledge in the name of Allah, and you also know how you fell short of your duty with respect to Yüsuf. Therefore, I am not going to leave this land until my father gives me permission or Allah decides for me, and He is the best of all judges.[80] Go back to your father and tell him, "father, your son committed theft. We did not see him stealing, we testify only to what we know. How could we guard against the unforeseen?[81] You may enquire from the people of the city where we lodged and the caravan in which we travelled that we are indeed telling the truth."[82] When they went back and told all this to their father, " No!" Cried their father, " Your souls have contrived a story for you. Well, I will bear this too with good patience. Maybe Allah will bring them all back to me; indeed He is the Knowledgeable, the Wise."[83] He turned his face away from them, crying: “Alas for Yüsuf!” His eyes became white with grief, and he became sorely oppressed.[84] They said: “By Allah! It appears that you will not cease to remember Yüsuf until you ruin your health or kill yourself."[85] He said: "I complain of my distress and grief to Allah Alone and I know from Allah what you do not know.[86] O my sons! Go and search for Yüsuf and his brother. Never give up hope of Allah’s mercy; in fact none despairs of Allah’s mercy except the unbelieving people."[87]


Yüsuf's brothers went back and told their father about the incident of Benjamin's stealing and retention

When they went back to Egypt and entered Yüsuf’s office, they said: “Noble prince! We and our family are in great distress, we have hardly any money, please give us full quota and also some charity. Surely Allah rewards the charitable."[88] Hearing this, Yüsuf, who could contain himself no longer, replied: “Do you know what you did to Yüsuf and his brother while acting out of ignorance?”[89] This took them by surprise, and they cried: “What! Are you really Yüsuf?” He said: “Yes! I am Yüsuf and this is my brother. Allah has indeed been gracious to us. In fact as for the righteous and patient; Allah really does not let the reward of the righteous be wasted."[90] They said: “By Allah! Certainly Allah has preferred you over us. We have indeed been guilty."[91] Yüsuf said: “There is no blame on you today. May Allah forgive you! He is the most Merciful of those who show mercy! [92] Go, take this shirt of mine and cast it over the face of my father, he will recover his sight. Then come back to me with all the members of your family."[93]


They came to Yüsuf and begged for food and some charity

Yüsuf disclosed his identity

He forgave his brothers and sent for his family

When the caravan started (from Egypt) their father (who was in Ken’ãn) said: “Certainly I feel the scent of Yüsuf, even though you may think I am out of my mind."[94] The people, who heard him, said: “By Allah! You are still suffering from your old illusion."[95] But when the bearer of the good news arrived, he cast the shirt of Yüsuf over his face and he regained his sight. Then he said: “Didn’t I tell you that I know from Allah what you do not know?”[96] They said: “Father! Pray for the forgiveness for our sins. We have indeed done wrong."[97] He replied: “Soon I will ask my Rabb for forgiveness for you; surely He is the One who is the Forgiving, the Merciful."[98]


Ya'qoob got the good news of his son Yüsuf

When they came to Yüsuf, he asked his parents to lodge with himself, and said: “Now enter the city. Allah willing, you will live here in peace."[99] After entering the city he helped his parents to seats on the throne, and they all fell down in prostration before him. “This,” said Yüsuf to his father, “is the interpretation of my dream which I dreamt long before. My Rabb has really made it come true. It was His grace that He took me out of prison and brought you all here from the desert even though Shaitãn had stirred up strife between me and my brothers. For sure my Rabb fulfills His plan in mysterious ways. Surely He is the One Who is the Knowledgeable, the Wise.[100] O Rabb! You have indeed given me a kingdom and taught me the interpretation of dreams. O, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, You are my Protector in this world and in the hereafter, make me die as a Muslim and admit me among the righteous."[101] O Muhammad, this story which We have revealed to you is a tale of the unseen; for you were not there with (the brothers of Yüsuf) when they collectively conspired and schemed against him.[102] Yet strive as you may, most men are not going to become believers,[103] even though You do not demand any recompense for this information. This Qur’an is nothing but a reminder for all the people of the worlds.[104]


Thus his family was relocated from Ken‘ãn to Egypt

Yüsuf's prayer to live and die as a Muslim

There are many signs in the heavens and the earth which they pass by; yet they pay no attention to them! [105] As a result most of them who believe in Allah also commit shirk.[106] Do they feel secure that Allah’s scourge will not fall on them, or that the Hour of Doom will not come upon them suddenly while they do not suspect it?[107] Tell them plainly: “This is my way. I invite you to Allah with sure knowledge which I and my followers possess. Glory be to Allah, and I am not one of the mushrikïn."[108]


Most of the people who believe in Allah also commit shirk

All the Rasools that We sent before you, O Muhammad, were human beings, to whom We sent Our Revelations after choosing them from the people of their town. Have these unbelievers not traveled through the land and seen what was the end of those who passed away before them? From their destiny you should know that the home of the hereafter is better for those who are righteous. Why don’t you understand?[109] Respite was granted until the Rasools gave up hope of their people and realized that they were being treated as liars, Our help came to them and We delivered those whom We pleased; and Our scourge was not averted from the criminal people.[110] There is a lesson in these stories of former people for the men of common sense. This story of Yüsuf revealed in the Qur’an is not an invented tale, but a confirmation of previous scriptures - a detailed exposition of all things, and is a guidance and blessing for the people who believe.[111]


All the Rasools were human beings

The story of Yüsuf is confirmation of previous scriptures

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* All Rasools were human beings.
* Yüsuf’s prayer to live and die as a Muslim.
* The faith of Prophets Ibrãhïm (Abraham), Ishãq (Isaac), Ya'qoob (Jacob) and Yüsuf (Joseph), may Allah’s peace be upon them all, was the same as that of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and they invited the people to the same Message to which Muhammad (pbuh) was inviting them.
* Characters molded by Islam (based on the worship of Allah and account- ability in the hereafter) are compared to characters molded by disbelief and ignorance (based on the worship of false gods and the material world). Then the addressees are asked to decide for themselves between these two patterns.
* It is made clear that, whatever Allah wills, He fulfills it, and no one can defeat His plan or prevent it from happening.
* The believers are advised to remain within the limits prescribed by Divine Law while pursuing their aims, because success and failure are entirely in the hands of Allah.
* The believers are advised to exert their efforts towards the Truth and put their trust in Allah. This will help them face their opponents with confidence and courage.
* Allah taught the believers through this story that one who possesses true Islamic character can conquer the world with the strength of his character. The marvellous example of the Prophet Yüsuf shows how a man of high and pure character comes out successful even under the most adverse circum- stances.

Moreover, the revelation of this Sürah accomplished the following two objectives:

  1. It provided proof of Muhammad's (pbuh) Prophethood, and that his knowledge was not based on mere hearsay, but was gained through revelation.
  2. It applied the theme of this story to the Qureysh and warned them that ultimately the conflict between them and the Prophet would end in his victory over them. As is stated in verse 7: "Indeed there are signs in this story of Yüsuf and his brothers for the inquirers from among the Qureysh."

In fact, by applying this story to the conflict between the Prophet and the Qureysh, the Qur’an had made a bold and clear prophecy which was fulfilled literally by the events that happened in the succeeding ten years. Hardly two years had passed after its revelation when the Qureysh, like the brothers of the Prophet Yüsuf, conspired to kill the Prophet and forced him to emigrate from Makkah to Al-Madinah, where he gained power similar to that gained by the Prophet Yüsuf in Egypt. Again, in the end, the Qureysh had to humble themselves before him just as the brothers of the Prophet Yüsuf humbly requested, “Show mercy to us for Allah rewards richly those who show mercy," (Verse 88) and the Prophet Yüsuf generously forgave them - though he had complete power to inflict his vengeance upon them. He said: "Today no penalty shall be inflicted on you. May Allah forgive you. He is the greatest of all those who forgive." (Verse: 92) The same story of mercy was repeated when, after the conquest of Makkah, the defeated Qureysh stood meekly before the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), who had full power to inflict his vengeance upon them for each and every cruelty committed by them. But instead, he merely asked them: “What treatment do you expect from me?” They replied, “You are a generous brother and the son of a generous brother.” At this, the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) forgave them very generously, saying: “I am giving the same answer to your request that Yüsuf gave to his brothers: “Today, no penalty shall be inflicted upon you: you are forgiven."
