بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ الر ۚ تِلكَ ءايٰتُ الكِتٰبِ المُبينِ(1)
ALIF LAM RA. These are the verses of the immaculate Book.(1)
إِنّا أَنزَلنٰهُ قُرءٰنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَعَلَّكُم تَعقِلونَ(2)
We have sent it down as a clear discourse that you may understand.(2)
نَحنُ نَقُصُّ عَلَيكَ أَحسَنَ القَصَصِ بِما أَوحَينا إِلَيكَ هٰذَا القُرءانَ وَإِن كُنتَ مِن قَبلِهِ لَمِنَ الغٰفِلينَ(3)
Through the revelation of this Qur'an We narrate the best of histories of which you were unaware before.(3)
إِذ قالَ يوسُفُ لِأَبيهِ يٰأَبَتِ إِنّى رَأَيتُ أَحَدَ عَشَرَ كَوكَبًا وَالشَّمسَ وَالقَمَرَ رَأَيتُهُم لى سٰجِدينَ(4)
When Joseph told his father: "O my father, I saw eleven stars and the sun and the moon bowing before me in homage,"(4)
قالَ يٰبُنَىَّ لا تَقصُص رُءياكَ عَلىٰ إِخوَتِكَ فَيَكيدوا لَكَ كَيدًا ۖ إِنَّ الشَّيطٰنَ لِلإِنسٰنِ عَدُوٌّ مُبينٌ(5)
He said: "O son, do not narrate your dream to your brothers, or they will plot against you. Surely Satan is man's acknowledged foe.(5)
وَكَذٰلِكَ يَجتَبيكَ رَبُّكَ وَيُعَلِّمُكَ مِن تَأويلِ الأَحاديثِ وَيُتِمُّ نِعمَتَهُ عَلَيكَ وَعَلىٰ ءالِ يَعقوبَ كَما أَتَمَّها عَلىٰ أَبَوَيكَ مِن قَبلُ إِبرٰهيمَ وَإِسحٰقَ ۚ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ عَليمٌ حَكيمٌ(6)
Your Lord will choose you and teach you to interpret events, and confer His favours on you and the house of Jacob, as He had done in the case of two ancestors of yours, Abraham and Isaac, before you. Indeed your Lord is all-knowing and all-wise."(6)
۞ لَقَد كانَ فى يوسُفَ وَإِخوَتِهِ ءايٰتٌ لِلسّائِلينَ(7)
In the story of Joseph and his brothers are lessons for those who inquire.(7)
إِذ قالوا لَيوسُفُ وَأَخوهُ أَحَبُّ إِلىٰ أَبينا مِنّا وَنَحنُ عُصبَةٌ إِنَّ أَبانا لَفى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(8)
"Surely Joseph and his brother are dearer to our father than we," (said his half brothers) "even though we are a well-knit band. Our father is surely in the wrong.(8)
اقتُلوا يوسُفَ أَوِ اطرَحوهُ أَرضًا يَخلُ لَكُم وَجهُ أَبيكُم وَتَكونوا مِن بَعدِهِ قَومًا صٰلِحينَ(9)
Let us kill Joseph or cast him in some distant land so that we may get our father's exclusive affection; then play innocent."(9)
قالَ قائِلٌ مِنهُم لا تَقتُلوا يوسُفَ وَأَلقوهُ فى غَيٰبَتِ الجُبِّ يَلتَقِطهُ بَعضُ السَّيّارَةِ إِن كُنتُم فٰعِلينَ(10)
One of them said: "If you must do so, then do not kill Joseph, but throw him into an unused well. Some passing caravan may rescue him."(10)
قالوا يٰأَبانا ما لَكَ لا تَأمَ۫نّا عَلىٰ يوسُفَ وَإِنّا لَهُ لَنٰصِحونَ(11)
(Then going to their father) they said: "O father, why don't you trust us with Joseph? We are in fact his well-wishers.(11)
أَرسِلهُ مَعَنا غَدًا يَرتَع وَيَلعَب وَإِنّا لَهُ لَحٰفِظونَ(12)
Let him go out with us tomorrow that he may enjoy and play. We shall take care of him."(12)
قالَ إِنّى لَيَحزُنُنى أَن تَذهَبوا بِهِ وَأَخافُ أَن يَأكُلَهُ الذِّئبُ وَأَنتُم عَنهُ غٰفِلونَ(13)
He said: "I am afraid of sending him with you lest a wolf should devour him when you are unmindful."(13)
قالوا لَئِن أَكَلَهُ الذِّئبُ وَنَحنُ عُصبَةٌ إِنّا إِذًا لَخٰسِرونَ(14)
They replied: "If a wolf should devour him when we are there, a well-knit band, we shall certainly be treacherous."(14)
فَلَمّا ذَهَبوا بِهِ وَأَجمَعوا أَن يَجعَلوهُ فى غَيٰبَتِ الجُبِّ ۚ وَأَوحَينا إِلَيهِ لَتُنَبِّئَنَّهُم بِأَمرِهِم هٰذا وَهُم لا يَشعُرونَ(15)
So, when they took him out they planned to throw him into an unused well. We revealed to Joseph: "You will tell them (one day) of this deed when they will not apprehend it."(15)
وَجاءو أَباهُم عِشاءً يَبكونَ(16)
At nightfall they came to their father weeping,(16)
قالوا يٰأَبانا إِنّا ذَهَبنا نَستَبِقُ وَتَرَكنا يوسُفَ عِندَ مَتٰعِنا فَأَكَلَهُ الذِّئبُ ۖ وَما أَنتَ بِمُؤمِنٍ لَنا وَلَو كُنّا صٰدِقينَ(17)
And said: "We went racing with one another and left Joseph to guard our things when a wolf devoured him. But you will not believe us even though we tell the truth."(17)
وَجاءو عَلىٰ قَميصِهِ بِدَمٍ كَذِبٍ ۚ قالَ بَل سَوَّلَت لَكُم أَنفُسُكُم أَمرًا ۖ فَصَبرٌ جَميلٌ ۖ وَاللَّهُ المُستَعانُ عَلىٰ ما تَصِفونَ(18)
They showed him the shirt with false blood on it. (Their father) said: "It is not so; you have made up the story. Yet endurance is best. I seek the help of God alone for what you impute."(18)
وَجاءَت سَيّارَةٌ فَأَرسَلوا وارِدَهُم فَأَدلىٰ دَلوَهُ ۖ قالَ يٰبُشرىٰ هٰذا غُلٰمٌ ۚ وَأَسَرّوهُ بِضٰعَةً ۚ وَاللَّهُ عَليمٌ بِما يَعمَلونَ(19)
A caravan happened to pass, and sent the water-carrier to bring water from the well. He let down his bucket (and pulled Joseph up with it). "What luck," said the man; "here is a boy;" and they hid him as an item of merchandise; but what they did was known to God.(19)
وَشَرَوهُ بِثَمَنٍ بَخسٍ دَرٰهِمَ مَعدودَةٍ وَكانوا فيهِ مِنَ الزّٰهِدينَ(20)
And they sold him as worthless for a few paltry dirham.(20)
وَقالَ الَّذِى اشتَرىٰهُ مِن مِصرَ لِامرَأَتِهِ أَكرِمى مَثوىٰهُ عَسىٰ أَن يَنفَعَنا أَو نَتَّخِذَهُ وَلَدًا ۚ وَكَذٰلِكَ مَكَّنّا لِيوسُفَ فِى الأَرضِ وَلِنُعَلِّمَهُ مِن تَأويلِ الأَحاديثِ ۚ وَاللَّهُ غالِبٌ عَلىٰ أَمرِهِ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَ النّاسِ لا يَعلَمونَ(21)
The Egyptian who bought him instructed his wife: "House him honourably. He may be of use to us. We may even adopt him as a son." So, We firmly established Joseph in the land, and taught him the interpretation of dreams. God dominated in his affairs, though most men do not know.(21)
وَلَمّا بَلَغَ أَشُدَّهُ ءاتَينٰهُ حُكمًا وَعِلمًا ۚ وَكَذٰلِكَ نَجزِى المُحسِنينَ(22)
When he reached the prime of life We gave him wisdom and knowledge. Thus We reward those who are good.(22)
وَرٰوَدَتهُ الَّتى هُوَ فى بَيتِها عَن نَفسِهِ وَغَلَّقَتِ الأَبوٰبَ وَقالَت هَيتَ لَكَ ۚ قالَ مَعاذَ اللَّهِ ۖ إِنَّهُ رَبّى أَحسَنَ مَثواىَ ۖ إِنَّهُ لا يُفلِحُ الظّٰلِمونَ(23)
But she in whose house he resided wished to seduce him and, closing the doors, said: "Come into me. "God forbid!" he said; "he is my master who has approved my stay. Surely those who act wrongly do not prosper."(23)
وَلَقَد هَمَّت بِهِ ۖ وَهَمَّ بِها لَولا أَن رَءا بُرهٰنَ رَبِّهِ ۚ كَذٰلِكَ لِنَصرِفَ عَنهُ السّوءَ وَالفَحشاءَ ۚ إِنَّهُ مِن عِبادِنَا المُخلَصينَ(24)
But the woman desired him, and he would have desired her but for the indication he received from his Lord. This was so that We may avert both evil and lechery from him, for he was one of Our chosen devotees.(24)
وَاستَبَقَا البابَ وَقَدَّت قَميصَهُ مِن دُبُرٍ وَأَلفَيا سَيِّدَها لَدَا البابِ ۚ قالَت ما جَزاءُ مَن أَرادَ بِأَهلِكَ سوءًا إِلّا أَن يُسجَنَ أَو عَذابٌ أَليمٌ(25)
Both of them raced to the door, and she (grabbed and) rent his shirt from behind. They met her lord outside the door. "There is no other penalty for a man," said she, "who wanted to outrage your wife but imprisonment or grievous punishment."(25)
قالَ هِىَ رٰوَدَتنى عَن نَفسى ۚ وَشَهِدَ شاهِدٌ مِن أَهلِها إِن كانَ قَميصُهُ قُدَّ مِن قُبُلٍ فَصَدَقَت وَهُوَ مِنَ الكٰذِبينَ(26)
(Joseph) said: "It was she who wanted to seduce me." And a witness from her family testified: "If the shirt is torn from the front then the woman is speaking the truth, and he is a liar.(26)
وَإِن كانَ قَميصُهُ قُدَّ مِن دُبُرٍ فَكَذَبَت وَهُوَ مِنَ الصّٰدِقينَ(27)
But if the shirt is torn from behind then she is a liar, and he speaks the truth."(27)
فَلَمّا رَءا قَميصَهُ قُدَّ مِن دُبُرٍ قالَ إِنَّهُ مِن كَيدِكُنَّ ۖ إِنَّ كَيدَكُنَّ عَظيمٌ(28)
When the husband saw the shirt torn at the back, he said: "Surely this is a woman's ruse, and the wiles of women are great.(28)
يوسُفُ أَعرِض عَن هٰذا ۚ وَاستَغفِرى لِذَنبِكِ ۖ إِنَّكِ كُنتِ مِنَ الخاطِـٔينَ(29)
Ignore this affair, O Joseph; and you, O woman, ask forgiveness for your sin, for you were surely errant."(29)
۞ وَقالَ نِسوَةٌ فِى المَدينَةِ امرَأَتُ العَزيزِ تُرٰوِدُ فَتىٰها عَن نَفسِهِ ۖ قَد شَغَفَها حُبًّا ۖ إِنّا لَنَرىٰها فى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(30)
In the city the women gossiped: "The minister's wife longs after her page. He has captured her heart. We think she is in clear error."(30)
فَلَمّا سَمِعَت بِمَكرِهِنَّ أَرسَلَت إِلَيهِنَّ وَأَعتَدَت لَهُنَّ مُتَّكَـًٔا وَءاتَت كُلَّ وٰحِدَةٍ مِنهُنَّ سِكّينًا وَقالَتِ اخرُج عَلَيهِنَّ ۖ فَلَمّا رَأَينَهُ أَكبَرنَهُ وَقَطَّعنَ أَيدِيَهُنَّ وَقُلنَ حٰشَ لِلَّهِ ما هٰذا بَشَرًا إِن هٰذا إِلّا مَلَكٌ كَريمٌ(31)
When she heard their slanderings, she sent for them and prepared a banquet, and gave each of them a knife (for paring fruit), and called (to Joseph): "Come out before them." When they saw him, the women were so wonderstruck they cut their hands, and exclaimed: "O Lord preserve us! He is no mortal but an honourable angel."(31)
قالَت فَذٰلِكُنَّ الَّذى لُمتُنَّنى فيهِ ۖ وَلَقَد رٰوَدتُهُ عَن نَفسِهِ فَاستَعصَمَ ۖ وَلَئِن لَم يَفعَل ما ءامُرُهُ لَيُسجَنَنَّ وَلَيَكونًا مِنَ الصّٰغِرينَ(32)
She said: "This is the one you blamed me for. I did desire his person, but he preserved himself from sin. Yet in case he does not do my bidding he will be put into prison and disgraced."(32)
قالَ رَبِّ السِّجنُ أَحَبُّ إِلَىَّ مِمّا يَدعونَنى إِلَيهِ ۖ وَإِلّا تَصرِف عَنّى كَيدَهُنَّ أَصبُ إِلَيهِنَّ وَأَكُن مِنَ الجٰهِلينَ(33)
(Joseph) prayed: "O Lord, dearer is prison than what they invite me to. Unless You turn their guiles away from me I shall succumb to their charms and thus become a pagan."(33)
فَاستَجابَ لَهُ رَبُّهُ فَصَرَفَ عَنهُ كَيدَهُنَّ ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّميعُ العَليمُ(34)
His Lord heard his prayer, and averted the women's wiles from him. He verily hears and knows everything.(34)
ثُمَّ بَدا لَهُم مِن بَعدِ ما رَأَوُا الءايٰتِ لَيَسجُنُنَّهُ حَتّىٰ حينٍ(35)
And yet in spite of having seen these clear proofs they found it proper to incarcerate him for a time.(35)
وَدَخَلَ مَعَهُ السِّجنَ فَتَيانِ ۖ قالَ أَحَدُهُما إِنّى أَرىٰنى أَعصِرُ خَمرًا ۖ وَقالَ الءاخَرُ إِنّى أَرىٰنى أَحمِلُ فَوقَ رَأسى خُبزًا تَأكُلُ الطَّيرُ مِنهُ ۖ نَبِّئنا بِتَأويلِهِ ۖ إِنّا نَرىٰكَ مِنَ المُحسِنينَ(36)
Two other youths were imprisoned along with him. Said one of them: "I dreamt that I was pressing grapes;" and the other: "I dreamt that I was carrying bread on my head, and the birds were pecking at it. You tell us the meaning of this. You seem to be a righteous man."(36)
قالَ لا يَأتيكُما طَعامٌ تُرزَقانِهِ إِلّا نَبَّأتُكُما بِتَأويلِهِ قَبلَ أَن يَأتِيَكُما ۚ ذٰلِكُما مِمّا عَلَّمَنى رَبّى ۚ إِنّى تَرَكتُ مِلَّةَ قَومٍ لا يُؤمِنونَ بِاللَّهِ وَهُم بِالءاخِرَةِ هُم كٰفِرونَ(37)
(Joseph) answered: "I will give you its interpretation before the food you are served arrives. This knowledge is one of the things my Lord has taught me. I have given up the religion of those who do not believe in God and deny the life to come.(37)
وَاتَّبَعتُ مِلَّةَ ءاباءى إِبرٰهيمَ وَإِسحٰقَ وَيَعقوبَ ۚ ما كانَ لَنا أَن نُشرِكَ بِاللَّهِ مِن شَيءٍ ۚ ذٰلِكَ مِن فَضلِ اللَّهِ عَلَينا وَعَلَى النّاسِ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَ النّاسِ لا يَشكُرونَ(38)
I follow the faith of my fathers, of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob. We cannot associate anyone with God. This is among God's favours to us and to all mankind; but most men are not grateful.(38)
يٰصىٰحِبَىِ السِّجنِ ءَأَربابٌ مُتَفَرِّقونَ خَيرٌ أَمِ اللَّهُ الوٰحِدُ القَهّارُ(39)
(Tell me) O fellow-prisoners, are a number of gods better, or one God omnipotent?(39)
ما تَعبُدونَ مِن دونِهِ إِلّا أَسماءً سَمَّيتُموها أَنتُم وَءاباؤُكُم ما أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ بِها مِن سُلطٰنٍ ۚ إِنِ الحُكمُ إِلّا لِلَّهِ ۚ أَمَرَ أَلّا تَعبُدوا إِلّا إِيّاهُ ۚ ذٰلِكَ الدّينُ القَيِّمُ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَ النّاسِ لا يَعلَمونَ(40)
(What) you worship besides Him are nothing but names that you and your fathers have assigned, for which no sanction has been sent down by God. Authority belongs to God alone. He commands that you worship none but Him. This is the right way; but most men are ignorant.(40)
يٰصىٰحِبَىِ السِّجنِ أَمّا أَحَدُكُما فَيَسقى رَبَّهُ خَمرًا ۖ وَأَمَّا الءاخَرُ فَيُصلَبُ فَتَأكُلُ الطَّيرُ مِن رَأسِهِ ۚ قُضِىَ الأَمرُ الَّذى فيهِ تَستَفتِيانِ(41)
O fellow-prisoners, one of you will serve wine to your master, the other will be crucified and the birds will peck at his brain. Determined is the matter of your inquiry."(41)
وَقالَ لِلَّذى ظَنَّ أَنَّهُ ناجٍ مِنهُمَا اذكُرنى عِندَ رَبِّكَ فَأَنسىٰهُ الشَّيطٰنُ ذِكرَ رَبِّهِ فَلَبِثَ فِى السِّجنِ بِضعَ سِنينَ(42)
And (Joseph) asked the man he knew would be released: "Remember me to your lord;" but Satan made him forget to mention this to his lord, and Joseph remained in prison for a number of years.(42)
وَقالَ المَلِكُ إِنّى أَرىٰ سَبعَ بَقَرٰتٍ سِمانٍ يَأكُلُهُنَّ سَبعٌ عِجافٌ وَسَبعَ سُنبُلٰتٍ خُضرٍ وَأُخَرَ يابِسٰتٍ ۖ يٰأَيُّهَا المَلَأُ أَفتونى فى رُءيٰىَ إِن كُنتُم لِلرُّءيا تَعبُرونَ(43)
(One day) the king said (to his courtiers): "I saw seven fat cows in a dream being devoured by seven lean ones, and seven ears of corn that were green and seven others that were seared. O courtiers, tell me the significance of my dream, if you know how to interpret them."(43)
قالوا أَضغٰثُ أَحلٰمٍ ۖ وَما نَحنُ بِتَأويلِ الأَحلٰمِ بِعٰلِمينَ(44)
"They were only confused dreams," they said; "we do not know how to interpret them."(44)
وَقالَ الَّذى نَجا مِنهُما وَادَّكَرَ بَعدَ أُمَّةٍ أَنا۠ أُنَبِّئُكُم بِتَأويلِهِ فَأَرسِلونِ(45)
Then the servant, who of the two had been released, remembering (Joseph), said: "I will give you its interpretation; let me go for it."(45)
يوسُفُ أَيُّهَا الصِّدّيقُ أَفتِنا فى سَبعِ بَقَرٰتٍ سِمانٍ يَأكُلُهُنَّ سَبعٌ عِجافٌ وَسَبعِ سُنبُلٰتٍ خُضرٍ وَأُخَرَ يابِسٰتٍ لَعَلّى أَرجِعُ إِلَى النّاسِ لَعَلَّهُم يَعلَمونَ(46)
(And coming to the prison) he said: "O Joseph the truthful, tell us (the meaning of) seven fat cows being devoured by seven lean ones, and seven green ears of corn and seven seared, that I may go back to the people and tell them."(46)
قالَ تَزرَعونَ سَبعَ سِنينَ دَأَبًا فَما حَصَدتُم فَذَروهُ فى سُنبُلِهِ إِلّا قَليلًا مِمّا تَأكُلونَ(47)
He said: "Sow as usual for seven years, and after reaping leave the corn in the ears, except the little you need for food.(47)
ثُمَّ يَأتى مِن بَعدِ ذٰلِكَ سَبعٌ شِدادٌ يَأكُلنَ ما قَدَّمتُم لَهُنَّ إِلّا قَليلًا مِمّا تُحصِنونَ(48)
Then there will come seven years of hardship which will consume the grain you had laid up against them, except a little you may have stored away.(48)
ثُمَّ يَأتى مِن بَعدِ ذٰلِكَ عامٌ فيهِ يُغاثُ النّاسُ وَفيهِ يَعصِرونَ(49)
This will be followed by a year of rain, and people shall press (the grapes)."(49)
وَقالَ المَلِكُ ائتونى بِهِ ۖ فَلَمّا جاءَهُ الرَّسولُ قالَ ارجِع إِلىٰ رَبِّكَ فَسـَٔلهُ ما بالُ النِّسوَةِ الّٰتى قَطَّعنَ أَيدِيَهُنَّ ۚ إِنَّ رَبّى بِكَيدِهِنَّ عَليمٌ(50)
The king said: "Bring him to me. So when the messenger came to Joseph, he said: "Go back to your lord and ask him: 'How fare the women who had cut their hands?' My Lord is cognisant of their guile."(50)
قالَ ما خَطبُكُنَّ إِذ رٰوَدتُنَّ يوسُفَ عَن نَفسِهِ ۚ قُلنَ حٰشَ لِلَّهِ ما عَلِمنا عَلَيهِ مِن سوءٍ ۚ قالَتِ امرَأَتُ العَزيزِ الـٰٔنَ حَصحَصَ الحَقُّ أَنا۠ رٰوَدتُهُ عَن نَفسِهِ وَإِنَّهُ لَمِنَ الصّٰدِقينَ(51)
The king asked the women: "What was the affair of seducing Joseph?" "God preserve us," they said; "we know no evil against him." The wife of the minister said: "The truth has now come out. It was I who desired to seduce him, but he is indeed a man of virtue." --(51)
ذٰلِكَ لِيَعلَمَ أَنّى لَم أَخُنهُ بِالغَيبِ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ لا يَهدى كَيدَ الخائِنينَ(52)
(At this Joseph remarked:) "From this (the Minister) should know that I did not betray him in his absence, and that God does not surely let the wiles of those who betray ever succeed.(52)
۞ وَما أُبَرِّئُ نَفسى ۚ إِنَّ النَّفسَ لَأَمّارَةٌ بِالسّوءِ إِلّا ما رَحِمَ رَبّى ۚ إِنَّ رَبّى غَفورٌ رَحيمٌ(53)
But I do not wish to absolve myself, for the soul is prone to evil, unless my Lord have mercy. Indeed my Lord is forgiving and kind." --(53)
وَقالَ المَلِكُ ائتونى بِهِ أَستَخلِصهُ لِنَفسى ۖ فَلَمّا كَلَّمَهُ قالَ إِنَّكَ اليَومَ لَدَينا مَكينٌ أَمينٌ(54)
When the king heard this he said: "Bring him to me. I shall take him in my special service." When he had talked to him, he said: "Today you are established in a rank of trust with us."(54)
قالَ اجعَلنى عَلىٰ خَزائِنِ الأَرضِ ۖ إِنّى حَفيظٌ عَليمٌ(55)
"Appoint me over the granaries of the land," (he said); "I shall be a knowledgeable keeper."(55)
وَكَذٰلِكَ مَكَّنّا لِيوسُفَ فِى الأَرضِ يَتَبَوَّأُ مِنها حَيثُ يَشاءُ ۚ نُصيبُ بِرَحمَتِنا مَن نَشاءُ ۖ وَلا نُضيعُ أَجرَ المُحسِنينَ(56)
Thus We gave Joseph authority in the land so that he lived wherever he liked. We bestow Our favours on whomsoever We please, and do not allow the reward of those who are good to go waste.(56)
وَلَأَجرُ الءاخِرَةِ خَيرٌ لِلَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَكانوا يَتَّقونَ(57)
And certainly the recompense of the life to come is better for those who believe and follow the right path.(57)
وَجاءَ إِخوَةُ يوسُفَ فَدَخَلوا عَلَيهِ فَعَرَفَهُم وَهُم لَهُ مُنكِرونَ(58)
The brothers of Joseph came (to Egypt) and visited him. He recognised them, though they did not recognise him.(58)
وَلَمّا جَهَّزَهُم بِجَهازِهِم قالَ ائتونى بِأَخٍ لَكُم مِن أَبيكُم ۚ أَلا تَرَونَ أَنّى أوفِى الكَيلَ وَأَنا۠ خَيرُ المُنزِلينَ(59)
When he had supplied their provisions, he said to them: "Bring your (half) brother with you. Have you not seen that I have given full measure, and that I am the best of hosts?(59)
فَإِن لَم تَأتونى بِهِ فَلا كَيلَ لَكُم عِندى وَلا تَقرَبونِ(60)
But if you do not bring him with you, then I shall have no grain for you, nor should you come back to me."(60)
قالوا سَنُرٰوِدُ عَنهُ أَباهُ وَإِنّا لَفٰعِلونَ(61)
They said: "We shall request his father, and will certainly do that."(61)
وَقالَ لِفِتيٰنِهِ اجعَلوا بِضٰعَتَهُم فى رِحالِهِم لَعَلَّهُم يَعرِفونَها إِذَا انقَلَبوا إِلىٰ أَهلِهِم لَعَلَّهُم يَرجِعونَ(62)
Then he ordered his servants: "Put their money back in their packs: They may find it on reaching home, and perhaps come again."(62)
فَلَمّا رَجَعوا إِلىٰ أَبيهِم قالوا يٰأَبانا مُنِعَ مِنَّا الكَيلُ فَأَرسِل مَعَنا أَخانا نَكتَل وَإِنّا لَهُ لَحٰفِظونَ(63)
When they returned to their father, they said: "O father, a further measure has been denied us. So send our brother with us that he may bring more grain. We shall take care of him."(63)
قالَ هَل ءامَنُكُم عَلَيهِ إِلّا كَما أَمِنتُكُم عَلىٰ أَخيهِ مِن قَبلُ ۖ فَاللَّهُ خَيرٌ حٰفِظًا ۖ وَهُوَ أَرحَمُ الرّٰحِمينَ(64)
He replied: "Should I trust you with him as I did his brother? But God is the best of guardians, and most merciful of all."(64)
وَلَمّا فَتَحوا مَتٰعَهُم وَجَدوا بِضٰعَتَهُم رُدَّت إِلَيهِم ۖ قالوا يٰأَبانا ما نَبغى ۖ هٰذِهِ بِضٰعَتُنا رُدَّت إِلَينا ۖ وَنَميرُ أَهلَنا وَنَحفَظُ أَخانا وَنَزدادُ كَيلَ بَعيرٍ ۖ ذٰلِكَ كَيلٌ يَسيرٌ(65)
When they unpacked their goods they said: "O father, what more can we ask? Look, even our money has been returned. We shall go and bring a camel-load more of grain for our family, and take good care of our brother. That will be an easy measure."(65)
قالَ لَن أُرسِلَهُ مَعَكُم حَتّىٰ تُؤتونِ مَوثِقًا مِنَ اللَّهِ لَتَأتُنَّنى بِهِ إِلّا أَن يُحاطَ بِكُم ۖ فَلَمّا ءاتَوهُ مَوثِقَهُم قالَ اللَّهُ عَلىٰ ما نَقولُ وَكيلٌ(66)
He said: "I will never send him with you until you swear by God that you will bring him back to me, unless all of you are overtaken (by misfortune)." When they had given their promise, he said: "God is witness to our conversation."(66)
وَقالَ يٰبَنِىَّ لا تَدخُلوا مِن بابٍ وٰحِدٍ وَادخُلوا مِن أَبوٰبٍ مُتَفَرِّقَةٍ ۖ وَما أُغنى عَنكُم مِنَ اللَّهِ مِن شَيءٍ ۖ إِنِ الحُكمُ إِلّا لِلَّهِ ۖ عَلَيهِ تَوَكَّلتُ ۖ وَعَلَيهِ فَليَتَوَكَّلِ المُتَوَكِّلونَ(67)
(As they were leaving) their father said to them: "O my sons, do not seek one approach but employ different ways (of attaining your object). If anything should befall you from God I shall not be able to avert it, for all authority belongs to God. I have placed my trust in Him, and the trusting should rely on Him alone."(67)
وَلَمّا دَخَلوا مِن حَيثُ أَمَرَهُم أَبوهُم ما كانَ يُغنى عَنهُم مِنَ اللَّهِ مِن شَيءٍ إِلّا حاجَةً فى نَفسِ يَعقوبَ قَضىٰها ۚ وَإِنَّهُ لَذو عِلمٍ لِما عَلَّمنٰهُ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَ النّاسِ لا يَعلَمونَ(68)
When they entered as their father had advised them, nothing could avail them against (the will of) God, yet it confirmed a premonition Jacob had, for verily he had knowledge as We had taught him, though most men do not know.(68)
وَلَمّا دَخَلوا عَلىٰ يوسُفَ ءاوىٰ إِلَيهِ أَخاهُ ۖ قالَ إِنّى أَنا۠ أَخوكَ فَلا تَبتَئِس بِما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(69)
When they came to Joseph he made his brother his guest, and said: "I am your brother. So do not grieve for what they had done."(69)
فَلَمّا جَهَّزَهُم بِجَهازِهِم جَعَلَ السِّقايَةَ فى رَحلِ أَخيهِ ثُمَّ أَذَّنَ مُؤَذِّنٌ أَيَّتُهَا العيرُ إِنَّكُم لَسٰرِقونَ(70)
When he had given them their provisions he put his goblet in his brother's saddle-bag. Then a crier announced: "O men of the caravan, you are thieves."(70)
قالوا وَأَقبَلوا عَلَيهِم ماذا تَفقِدونَ(71)
They turned to them and asked: "What is it you have lost?"(71)
قالوا نَفقِدُ صُواعَ المَلِكِ وَلِمَن جاءَ بِهِ حِملُ بَعيرٍ وَأَنا۠ بِهِ زَعيمٌ(72)
"We cannot find the master's goblet. Whoever comes up with it will be given a camel-load of grain; I vouch for it."(72)
قالوا تَاللَّهِ لَقَد عَلِمتُم ما جِئنا لِنُفسِدَ فِى الأَرضِ وَما كُنّا سٰرِقينَ(73)
They said: "We swear by God. You know we did not come to commit any crime in the land, nor are we thieves."(73)
قالوا فَما جَزٰؤُهُ إِن كُنتُم كٰذِبينَ(74)
"What should be the punishment," they were asked, "in case you are liars?"(74)
قالوا جَزٰؤُهُ مَن وُجِدَ فى رَحلِهِ فَهُوَ جَزٰؤُهُ ۚ كَذٰلِكَ نَجزِى الظّٰلِمينَ(75)
"The punishment for that (should be)," they said, "that he in whose luggage it is found should be held as punishment. This is how we repay the wrong-doers."(75)
فَبَدَأَ بِأَوعِيَتِهِم قَبلَ وِعاءِ أَخيهِ ثُمَّ استَخرَجَها مِن وِعاءِ أَخيهِ ۚ كَذٰلِكَ كِدنا لِيوسُفَ ۖ ما كانَ لِيَأخُذَ أَخاهُ فى دينِ المَلِكِ إِلّا أَن يَشاءَ اللَّهُ ۚ نَرفَعُ دَرَجٰتٍ مَن نَشاءُ ۗ وَفَوقَ كُلِّ ذى عِلمٍ عَليمٌ(76)
So he searched their saddle-bags before his brother's, then produced the cup from his brother's bag. That is how We planned an excuse for Joseph, for under the law of the king he could not detain his brother unless God so willed. We raise the status of whom We please. Over every man of knowledge there is one more knowing.(76)
۞ قالوا إِن يَسرِق فَقَد سَرَقَ أَخٌ لَهُ مِن قَبلُ ۚ فَأَسَرَّها يوسُفُ فى نَفسِهِ وَلَم يُبدِها لَهُم ۚ قالَ أَنتُم شَرٌّ مَكانًا ۖ وَاللَّهُ أَعلَمُ بِما تَصِفونَ(77)
Said the brothers: "If he has stolen (no wonder), his brother had stolen before." But Joseph kept this secret and did not disclose it to them, and said (to himself): "You are worse in the degree of evil, for God knows better of what you allege."(77)
قالوا يٰأَيُّهَا العَزيزُ إِنَّ لَهُ أَبًا شَيخًا كَبيرًا فَخُذ أَحَدَنا مَكانَهُ ۖ إِنّا نَرىٰكَ مِنَ المُحسِنينَ(78)
They said: "O Minister, he has an aged father, so keep one of us in his place. We see you are a virtuous man."(78)
قالَ مَعاذَ اللَّهِ أَن نَأخُذَ إِلّا مَن وَجَدنا مَتٰعَنا عِندَهُ إِنّا إِذًا لَظٰلِمونَ(79)
"May God forgive us," he said, "if we hold any one but him with whom we found our property, or else we would be unjust."(79)
فَلَمَّا استَيـَٔسوا مِنهُ خَلَصوا نَجِيًّا ۖ قالَ كَبيرُهُم أَلَم تَعلَموا أَنَّ أَباكُم قَد أَخَذَ عَلَيكُم مَوثِقًا مِنَ اللَّهِ وَمِن قَبلُ ما فَرَّطتُم فى يوسُفَ ۖ فَلَن أَبرَحَ الأَرضَ حَتّىٰ يَأذَنَ لى أَبى أَو يَحكُمَ اللَّهُ لى ۖ وَهُوَ خَيرُ الحٰكِمينَ(80)
When they despaired of (persuading) him, they went aside to confer. The oldest of them said: "You know that your father has pledged you in the name of God, and you have been guilty of iniquity in the case of Joseph before. I will not leave this place unless my father permits or God decides for me, for He is the best of all judges.(80)
ارجِعوا إِلىٰ أَبيكُم فَقولوا يٰأَبانا إِنَّ ابنَكَ سَرَقَ وَما شَهِدنا إِلّا بِما عَلِمنا وَما كُنّا لِلغَيبِ حٰفِظينَ(81)
So, go to your father and tell him: 'O father, your son has committed a theft. We bear witness to only what we know; we could not prevent the unknown.(81)
وَسـَٔلِ القَريَةَ الَّتى كُنّا فيها وَالعيرَ الَّتى أَقبَلنا فيها ۖ وَإِنّا لَصٰدِقونَ(82)
Enquire from the people of that city, or ask the men of the caravan with whom we have come. We are verily speaking the truth.'"(82)
قالَ بَل سَوَّلَت لَكُم أَنفُسُكُم أَمرًا ۖ فَصَبرٌ جَميلٌ ۖ عَسَى اللَّهُ أَن يَأتِيَنى بِهِم جَميعًا ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ العَليمُ الحَكيمُ(83)
"No," said (the father). "You have made up the story; but patience is best; God may bring them back to me. He is all-knowing and all-wise."(83)
وَتَوَلّىٰ عَنهُم وَقالَ يٰأَسَفىٰ عَلىٰ يوسُفَ وَابيَضَّت عَيناهُ مِنَ الحُزنِ فَهُوَ كَظيمٌ(84)
He turned away from them and cried: "Alas for Joseph!" And his eyes turned white with grief which he bore in silence.(84)
قالوا تَاللَّهِ تَفتَؤُا۟ تَذكُرُ يوسُفَ حَتّىٰ تَكونَ حَرَضًا أَو تَكونَ مِنَ الهٰلِكينَ(85)
"By God," said they, "you will never stop thinking of Joseph till you are consumed or perish."(85)
قالَ إِنَّما أَشكوا بَثّى وَحُزنى إِلَى اللَّهِ وَأَعلَمُ مِنَ اللَّهِ ما لا تَعلَمونَ(86)
He replied: "I cry my plaint and grief to God, and know from God what you do not know.(86)
يٰبَنِىَّ اذهَبوا فَتَحَسَّسوا مِن يوسُفَ وَأَخيهِ وَلا تَا۟يـَٔسوا مِن رَوحِ اللَّهِ ۖ إِنَّهُ لا يَا۟يـَٔسُ مِن رَوحِ اللَّهِ إِلَّا القَومُ الكٰفِرونَ(87)
O sons, go in search of Joseph and his brother, and do not despair of the mercy of God. Only they despair of God's mercy who do not believe."(87)
فَلَمّا دَخَلوا عَلَيهِ قالوا يٰأَيُّهَا العَزيزُ مَسَّنا وَأَهلَنَا الضُّرُّ وَجِئنا بِبِضٰعَةٍ مُزجىٰةٍ فَأَوفِ لَنَا الكَيلَ وَتَصَدَّق عَلَينا ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَجزِى المُتَصَدِّقينَ(88)
When they returned to him, they said (to Joseph): "O Minister, calamity has befallen us and our people. We have brought but a meagre sum, but give us full measure as alms bestowed. God surely rewards those who give alms."(88)
قالَ هَل عَلِمتُم ما فَعَلتُم بِيوسُفَ وَأَخيهِ إِذ أَنتُم جٰهِلونَ(89)
, He said: "Do you know what you did to Joseph and his brother in your ignorance?"(89)
قالوا أَءِنَّكَ لَأَنتَ يوسُفُ ۖ قالَ أَنا۠ يوسُفُ وَهٰذا أَخى ۖ قَد مَنَّ اللَّهُ عَلَينا ۖ إِنَّهُ مَن يَتَّقِ وَيَصبِر فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يُضيعُ أَجرَ المُحسِنينَ(90)
They said: "Surely you are not Joseph!" "I am Joseph," he said, "and this is my brother. God has been gracious to us; for God does not verily deprive those who fear Him and are patient of the recompense of those who are good."(90)
قالوا تَاللَّهِ لَقَد ءاثَرَكَ اللَّهُ عَلَينا وَإِن كُنّا لَخٰطِـٔينَ(91)
They said: "By God, God has favoured you above us, for we have indeed been sinners."(91)
قالَ لا تَثريبَ عَلَيكُمُ اليَومَ ۖ يَغفِرُ اللَّهُ لَكُم ۖ وَهُوَ أَرحَمُ الرّٰحِمينَ(92)
"There is no blame on you today," he said, "May God forgive you. He is the most merciful of all.(92)
اذهَبوا بِقَميصى هٰذا فَأَلقوهُ عَلىٰ وَجهِ أَبى يَأتِ بَصيرًا وَأتونى بِأَهلِكُم أَجمَعينَ(93)
Take my shirt and put it on my father's face; his eyesight will be restored; and bring your entire family to me."(93)
وَلَمّا فَصَلَتِ العيرُ قالَ أَبوهُم إِنّى لَأَجِدُ ريحَ يوسُفَ ۖ لَولا أَن تُفَنِّدونِ(94)
The caravan departed (from Egypt) and Jacob said (at home): "Say not that I am in my dotage, but I get the smell of Joseph."(94)
قالوا تَاللَّهِ إِنَّكَ لَفى ضَلٰلِكَ القَديمِ(95)
They said: "By God, you are still persisting in your old delusion."(95)
فَلَمّا أَن جاءَ البَشيرُ أَلقىٰهُ عَلىٰ وَجهِهِ فَارتَدَّ بَصيرًا ۖ قالَ أَلَم أَقُل لَكُم إِنّى أَعلَمُ مِنَ اللَّهِ ما لا تَعلَمونَ(96)
Then, as the harbinger of happy news arrived and put the garment over his face his eyesight was restored. He said: "Did I not tell you? I know from God what you do not know."(96)
قالوا يٰأَبانَا استَغفِر لَنا ذُنوبَنا إِنّا كُنّا خٰطِـٔينَ(97)
Said (the sons): "O our father, pray for us that our sins be forgiven, for we are really sinners."(97)
قالَ سَوفَ أَستَغفِرُ لَكُم رَبّى ۖ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الغَفورُ الرَّحيمُ(98)
"I will ask my Lord to forgive you," he replied, "for He is forgiving and kind."(98)
فَلَمّا دَخَلوا عَلىٰ يوسُفَ ءاوىٰ إِلَيهِ أَبَوَيهِ وَقالَ ادخُلوا مِصرَ إِن شاءَ اللَّهُ ءامِنينَ(99)
When they went back to Joseph he gave his father and mother a place of honour, and said: "Enter Egypt in peace by the will of God."(99)
وَرَفَعَ أَبَوَيهِ عَلَى العَرشِ وَخَرّوا لَهُ سُجَّدًا ۖ وَقالَ يٰأَبَتِ هٰذا تَأويلُ رُءيٰىَ مِن قَبلُ قَد جَعَلَها رَبّى حَقًّا ۖ وَقَد أَحسَنَ بى إِذ أَخرَجَنى مِنَ السِّجنِ وَجاءَ بِكُم مِنَ البَدوِ مِن بَعدِ أَن نَزَغَ الشَّيطٰنُ بَينى وَبَينَ إِخوَتى ۚ إِنَّ رَبّى لَطيفٌ لِما يَشاءُ ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ العَليمُ الحَكيمُ(100)
He seated his parents by his side on the throne; and they fell down before him in homage. "O my father," said Joseph, "this is the meaning of my earlier dream. My Lord has made it come true. He was gracious in getting me out of the prison, and bringing you out of the desert to me after the discord created by Satan between me and my brothers, for my Lord is gracious to whomsoever He please. He is indeed all-knowing and all-wise.(100)
۞ رَبِّ قَد ءاتَيتَنى مِنَ المُلكِ وَعَلَّمتَنى مِن تَأويلِ الأَحاديثِ ۚ فاطِرَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ أَنتَ وَلِيّۦ فِى الدُّنيا وَالءاخِرَةِ ۖ تَوَفَّنى مُسلِمًا وَأَلحِقنى بِالصّٰلِحينَ(101)
O my Lord, you have given me dominion and taught me the interpretation of dreams; O Creator of the heavens and the earth, You alone are my saviour in this world and the world to come; let me die submitting to You, and place me among the upright."(101)
ذٰلِكَ مِن أَنباءِ الغَيبِ نوحيهِ إِلَيكَ ۖ وَما كُنتَ لَدَيهِم إِذ أَجمَعوا أَمرَهُم وَهُم يَمكُرونَ(102)
This is news of the unknown We reveal to you, for you were not present when Joseph's brothers agreed on their course of action, and devised their plot.(102)
وَما أَكثَرُ النّاسِ وَلَو حَرَصتَ بِمُؤمِنينَ(103)
Many men will not believe howsoever you wish,(103)
وَما تَسـَٔلُهُم عَلَيهِ مِن أَجرٍ ۚ إِن هُوَ إِلّا ذِكرٌ لِلعٰلَمينَ(104)
Even though you ask no recompense (for it). It is only a warning for all mankind.(104)
وَكَأَيِّن مِن ءايَةٍ فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ يَمُرّونَ عَلَيها وَهُم عَنها مُعرِضونَ(105)
How many a sign there is in the heavens and the earth which most men pass by and ignore,(105)
وَما يُؤمِنُ أَكثَرُهُم بِاللَّهِ إِلّا وَهُم مُشرِكونَ(106)
Not only do they not believe in God, but also associate others with Him.(106)
أَفَأَمِنوا أَن تَأتِيَهُم غٰشِيَةٌ مِن عَذابِ اللَّهِ أَو تَأتِيَهُمُ السّاعَةُ بَغتَةً وَهُم لا يَشعُرونَ(107)
Do they really believe that an all-embracing punishment of God will not come upon them, or the Day of Doom overtake them suddenly while they remain unaware?(107)
قُل هٰذِهِ سَبيلى أَدعوا إِلَى اللَّهِ ۚ عَلىٰ بَصيرَةٍ أَنا۠ وَمَنِ اتَّبَعَنى ۖ وَسُبحٰنَ اللَّهِ وَما أَنا۠ مِنَ المُشرِكينَ(108)
Say: "My way, and that of my followers, is to call you to God with full perception. All glory to God, I am not an idolater."(108)
وَما أَرسَلنا مِن قَبلِكَ إِلّا رِجالًا نوحى إِلَيهِم مِن أَهلِ القُرىٰ ۗ أَفَلَم يَسيروا فِى الأَرضِ فَيَنظُروا كَيفَ كانَ عٰقِبَةُ الَّذينَ مِن قَبلِهِم ۗ وَلَدارُ الءاخِرَةِ خَيرٌ لِلَّذينَ اتَّقَوا ۗ أَفَلا تَعقِلونَ(109)
All the apostles We had sent before you were men of those regions, to whom We sent Our revelations. Have they not travelled on the earth and seen what befell the people before them? Surely the abode of the Hereafter is better for those who fear straying from the right path. Do you not understand?(109)
حَتّىٰ إِذَا استَيـَٔسَ الرُّسُلُ وَظَنّوا أَنَّهُم قَد كُذِبوا جاءَهُم نَصرُنا فَنُجِّىَ مَن نَشاءُ ۖ وَلا يُرَدُّ بَأسُنا عَنِ القَومِ المُجرِمينَ(110)
When the apostles despaired and thought they were made false promises, Our help arrived, and We delivered whom We pleased; but never will Our punishment be averted from the sinners.(110)
لَقَد كانَ فى قَصَصِهِم عِبرَةٌ لِأُولِى الأَلبٰبِ ۗ ما كانَ حَديثًا يُفتَرىٰ وَلٰكِن تَصديقَ الَّذى بَينَ يَدَيهِ وَتَفصيلَ كُلِّ شَيءٍ وَهُدًى وَرَحمَةً لِقَومٍ يُؤمِنونَ(111)
Verily in their accounts is a lesson for men of wisdom. This is not a fictitious tale, but a verification of earlier Books, and a clear exposition of everything, and a guidance and grace for those who believe.(111)
