بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ الر ۚ تِلكَ ءايٰتُ الكِتٰبِ المُبينِ(1)
Alif. Lam. Ra. These are the verses of the illustrious Book.(1)
إِنّا أَنزَلنٰهُ قُرءٰنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَعَلَّكُم تَعقِلونَ(2)
We have revealed it in the Arabic language so that you (people) would understand it.(2)
نَحنُ نَقُصُّ عَلَيكَ أَحسَنَ القَصَصِ بِما أَوحَينا إِلَيكَ هٰذَا القُرءانَ وَإِن كُنتَ مِن قَبلِهِ لَمِنَ الغٰفِلينَ(3)
In revealing this Quran to you, We tell you the best of the stories of which you were unaware.(3)
إِذ قالَ يوسُفُ لِأَبيهِ يٰأَبَتِ إِنّى رَأَيتُ أَحَدَ عَشَرَ كَوكَبًا وَالشَّمسَ وَالقَمَرَ رَأَيتُهُم لى سٰجِدينَ(4)
When Joseph said, "Father, in my dream I saw eleven stars, the sun and the moon prostrating before me,"(4)
قالَ يٰبُنَىَّ لا تَقصُص رُءياكَ عَلىٰ إِخوَتِكَ فَيَكيدوا لَكَ كَيدًا ۖ إِنَّ الشَّيطٰنَ لِلإِنسٰنِ عَدُوٌّ مُبينٌ(5)
his father said, "My son, do not tell your dream to your brothers lest they plot against you; satan is the sworn enemy of man.(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)
Thus, your Lord will select you, teach you the interpretation of dreams, and grant His favors to you and the family of Jacob, just as He granted His favors to your fathers, Abraham and Isaac. Your Lord is certainly All-knowing and All-wise."(6)
۞ لَقَد كانَ فى يوسُفَ وَإِخوَتِهِ ءايٰتٌ لِلسّائِلينَ(7)
In the story of Joseph and his brothers, there is evidence (of the truth) for those who seek to know.(7)
إِذ قالوا لَيوسُفُ وَأَخوهُ أَحَبُّ إِلىٰ أَبينا مِنّا وَنَحنُ عُصبَةٌ إِنَّ أَبانا لَفى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(8)
Joseph's brothers said to one another, "There is no doubt that Joseph and his brother are more loved by our father, even though we are all his offspring. He (our father) is certainly in manifest error."(8)
اقتُلوا يوسُفَ أَوِ اطرَحوهُ أَرضًا يَخلُ لَكُم وَجهُ أَبيكُم وَتَكونوا مِن بَعدِهِ قَومًا صٰلِحينَ(9)
Some of them suggested, "Let us kill Joseph or leave him somewhere far away from the presence of our father. Only then shall we receive equal treatment and thereafter can become righteous people".(9)
قالَ قائِلٌ مِنهُم لا تَقتُلوا يوسُفَ وَأَلقوهُ فى غَيٰبَتِ الجُبِّ يَلتَقِطهُ بَعضُ السَّيّارَةِ إِن كُنتُم فٰعِلينَ(10)
One of them said, "Do not kill Joseph, but if you must, throw him into a dark well so that perhaps some caravan will take him away."(10)
قالوا يٰأَبانا ما لَكَ لا تَأمَ۫نّا عَلىٰ يوسُفَ وَإِنّا لَهُ لَنٰصِحونَ(11)
Then they asked their father, "Why do you not trust us with Joseph? We are his well-wishers.(11)
أَرسِلهُ مَعَنا غَدًا يَرتَع وَيَلعَب وَإِنّا لَهُ لَحٰفِظونَ(12)
Send him with us tomorrow to play with us and enjoy himself. We shall carefully protect him".(12)
قالَ إِنّى لَيَحزُنُنى أَن تَذهَبوا بِهِ وَأَخافُ أَن يَأكُلَهُ الذِّئبُ وَأَنتُم عَنهُ غٰفِلونَ(13)
Jacob replied, "I shall be grieved if you take him with you; I fear that some wild-beast will harm him in your absence."(13)
قالوا لَئِن أَكَلَهُ الذِّئبُ وَنَحنُ عُصبَةٌ إِنّا إِذًا لَخٰسِرونَ(14)
They said, "If some wild-beast would be able to harm him, despite the presence of our strong group, it would certainly be a great loss to us!"(14)
فَلَمّا ذَهَبوا بِهِ وَأَجمَعوا أَن يَجعَلوهُ فى غَيٰبَتِ الجُبِّ ۚ وَأَوحَينا إِلَيهِ لَتُنَبِّئَنَّهُم بِأَمرِهِم هٰذا وَهُم لا يَشعُرونَ(15)
When they took Joseph with them, they agreed to throw him into the well. We revealed to Joseph that (sometime) in the future at a time when they would not recognize him, he would remind them of all this.(15)
وَجاءو أَباهُم عِشاءً يَبكونَ(16)
In the evening they returned 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 saying, "Father, we went playing and left Joseph with our belongings. A wild-beast came and devoured him. We realize that you will not believe us even though we are telling the truth".(17)
وَجاءو عَلىٰ قَميصِهِ بِدَمٍ كَذِبٍ ۚ قالَ بَل سَوَّلَت لَكُم أَنفُسُكُم أَمرًا ۖ فَصَبرٌ جَميلٌ ۖ وَاللَّهُ المُستَعانُ عَلىٰ ما تَصِفونَ(18)
They presented him with a shirt stained with false blood. Jacob said, "Your souls have tempted you in this matter. Let us be patient and beg assistance from God if what you say is true."(18)
وَجاءَت سَيّارَةٌ فَأَرسَلوا وارِدَهُم فَأَدلىٰ دَلوَهُ ۖ قالَ يٰبُشرىٰ هٰذا غُلٰمٌ ۚ وَأَسَرّوهُ بِضٰعَةً ۚ وَاللَّهُ عَليمٌ بِما يَعمَلونَ(19)
A caravan came by and sent their water carrier out to the well. When he drew out Joseph in his bucket, he shouted, "Glad news, a young boy!" The people of the caravan hid him amongst their belongings. God knows well what they do.(19)
وَشَرَوهُ بِثَمَنٍ بَخسٍ دَرٰهِمَ مَعدودَةٍ وَكانوا فيهِ مِنَ الزّٰهِدينَ(20)
In selling him they asked for a very small price and even then no one wanted to buy him.(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 said to his wife, "Be kind to him, perhaps he will be of some benefit to us or we may adopt him." Thus, We settled Joseph in the land so that We could teach him the interpretation of dreams. God has full control over His affairs but most people do not know.(21)
وَلَمّا بَلَغَ أَشُدَّهُ ءاتَينٰهُ حُكمًا وَعِلمًا ۚ وَكَذٰلِكَ نَجزِى المُحسِنينَ(22)
When he attained maturity, God gave him strength, wisdom and knowledge. Thus, do We reward those who do 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)
His master's wife then tried to seduce him. She locked the doors and said to him, "Come on." He said, "I seek refuge in God who has given me a good place of shelter. The unjust will certainly have no happiness."(23)
وَلَقَد هَمَّت بِهِ ۖ وَهَمَّ بِها لَولا أَن رَءا بُرهٰنَ رَبِّهِ ۚ كَذٰلِكَ لِنَصرِفَ عَنهُ السّوءَ وَالفَحشاءَ ۚ إِنَّهُ مِن عِبادِنَا المُخلَصينَ(24)
She was determined to have him and were it not for his faith in God, he would certainly have yielded to her. Thus did We protect him from evil and indecency. He was certainly one of Our sincere servants.(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)
She chased him to the door, grabbed him from behind, and tore off his shirt. Suddenly, they were face to face with her husband. (Looking accusingly at Joseph) she asked her husband, "What punishment is more fitting for those who have evil desires towards your household other than imprisonment and painful torment?"(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 tried to seduce me." Someone from the household in confirmation of Joseph's statement said, "If his shirt it torn from the front, she has spoken the truth and he is lying,(26)
وَإِن كانَ قَميصُهُ قُدَّ مِن دُبُرٍ فَكَذَبَت وَهُوَ مِنَ الصّٰدِقينَ(27)
but if his shirt is torn from behind, she is lying and he is speaking the truth."(27)
فَلَمّا رَءا قَميصَهُ قُدَّ مِن دُبُرٍ قالَ إِنَّهُ مِن كَيدِكُنَّ ۖ إِنَّ كَيدَكُنَّ عَظيمٌ(28)
When the master saw that Joseph's shirt was torn from behind, he told his wife, "This is some of your womanly guile in which you are certainly skillful.(28)
يوسُفُ أَعرِض عَن هٰذا ۚ وَاستَغفِرى لِذَنبِكِ ۖ إِنَّكِ كُنتِ مِنَ الخاطِـٔينَ(29)
Joseph, stay away from such affairs and you, woman, ask forgiveness for your sin; the guilt is yours."(29)
۞ وَقالَ نِسوَةٌ فِى المَدينَةِ امرَأَتُ العَزيزِ تُرٰوِدُ فَتىٰها عَن نَفسِهِ ۖ قَد شَغَفَها حُبًّا ۖ إِنّا لَنَرىٰها فى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(30)
Some of the women in the town started to gossip saying, "The King's wife has tried to seduce her servant and has fallen madly in love with him. We think that she is in manifest 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 gossiping, she invited them to her house for a banquet and gave a knife to each of them. Then she told Joseph to appear before them. When they saw Joseph, they were so amazed that they cut their hands and said, "Goodness gracious! He is not a mortal but is a charming 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 on whose account you subjected me to all this blame. I tried to seduce him but he abstained. If he does not yield to me, I shall order him to be locked up in prison to make him humble."(32)
قالَ رَبِّ السِّجنُ أَحَبُّ إِلَىَّ مِمّا يَدعونَنى إِلَيهِ ۖ وَإِلّا تَصرِف عَنّى كَيدَهُنَّ أَصبُ إِلَيهِنَّ وَأَكُن مِنَ الجٰهِلينَ(33)
Joseph said, "Lord, prison is dearer to me than that which women want me to do. Unless You protect me from their guile, I shall be attracted to them in my ignorance".(33)
فَاستَجابَ لَهُ رَبُّهُ فَصَرَفَ عَنهُ كَيدَهُنَّ ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّميعُ العَليمُ(34)
His Lord heard his prayers and protected him from their guile; He is All-hearing and All-knowing.(34)
ثُمَّ بَدا لَهُم مِن بَعدِ ما رَأَوُا الءايٰتِ لَيَسجُنُنَّهُ حَتّىٰ حينٍ(35)
Even after Joseph had been found innocent of any crime, the King and his people decided to imprison him for an appointed time (so that people would forget the incident).(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 young men were also sent to serve prison sentences (for different reasons). One of them said, "I had a dream in which I was brewing wine." The other one said, "In my dream I was carrying some bread on my head and birds were eating that bread." They asked Joseph if he would interpret their dreams. They said, "We believe you to be a righteous person."(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) said, "To prove that my interpretation of your dream is true, I can tell you what kind of food you will receive even before it comes to you. My Lord has given me such talents. I have given up the tradition of the people who do not believe in God and the Day of Judgment(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)
and I have embraced the religion of my fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We are not supposed to consider anything equal to God. This is part of God's blessing to us and the people, but most people do not give thanks.(38)
يٰصىٰحِبَىِ السِّجنِ ءَأَربابٌ مُتَفَرِّقونَ خَيرٌ أَمِ اللَّهُ الوٰحِدُ القَهّارُ(39)
"My fellow-prisoners can many different masters be considered better than One All-dominant God?(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 instead of God are no more than empty names that you and your fathers have given to certain things. God has not given any authority to such names. Judgment belongs to no one but God. He has commanded you to worship nothing but Him. This is the only true religion, but most people do not know.(40)
يٰصىٰحِبَىِ السِّجنِ أَمّا أَحَدُكُما فَيَسقى رَبَّهُ خَمرًا ۖ وَأَمَّا الءاخَرُ فَيُصلَبُ فَتَأكُلُ الطَّيرُ مِن رَأسِهِ ۚ قُضِىَ الأَمرُ الَّذى فيهِ تَستَفتِيانِ(41)
"Fellow-prisoners, your dreams tell that one of you will serve wine to his master and the other will be crucified and his head consumed by the birds. Judgment has already been passed about the meaning of the dreams that you asked about."(41)
وَقالَ لِلَّذى ظَنَّ أَنَّهُ ناجٍ مِنهُمَا اذكُرنى عِندَ رَبِّكَ فَأَنسىٰهُ الشَّيطٰنُ ذِكرَ رَبِّهِ فَلَبِثَ فِى السِّجنِ بِضعَ سِنينَ(42)
Joseph asked the one, whom he knew would not be executed, to mention his case to his Lord. Satan caused that man to forget all about Joseph and his case. Thus, Joseph remained in prison for some 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)
(Sometimes later), the King dreamt that seven lean cows were eating seven fat ones and that there were seven green ears of corn and seven dry ones. He asked the nobles to tell him the meaning of his dream if they were able to.(43)
قالوا أَضغٰثُ أَحلٰمٍ ۖ وَما نَحنُ بِتَأويلِ الأَحلٰمِ بِعٰلِمينَ(44)
They replied, "It is a confused dream and we do not know the meaning of such dreams."(44)
وَقالَ الَّذى نَجا مِنهُما وَادَّكَرَ بَعدَ أُمَّةٍ أَنا۠ أُنَبِّئُكُم بِتَأويلِهِ فَأَرسِلونِ(45)
The man who was in prison with Joseph and who was released, recalled after so many years Joseph's (ability to interpret dreams) and said, "I can tell you the meaning of this dream if you allow me to go (to the prison and ask the man who knows the meanings of dreams)."(45)
يوسُفُ أَيُّهَا الصِّدّيقُ أَفتِنا فى سَبعِ بَقَرٰتٍ سِمانٍ يَأكُلُهُنَّ سَبعٌ عِجافٌ وَسَبعِ سُنبُلٰتٍ خُضرٍ وَأُخَرَ يابِسٰتٍ لَعَلّى أَرجِعُ إِلَى النّاسِ لَعَلَّهُم يَعلَمونَ(46)
(He went to the prison) and said to Joseph, "You are a man of truth. Would you tell me the meaning of a dream in which seven fat cows eat up seven lean ones and the meaning of seven green ears of corn and seven dry ones? I hope you can tell me the right meaning and save people from confusion."(46)
قالَ تَزرَعونَ سَبعَ سِنينَ دَأَبًا فَما حَصَدتُم فَذَروهُ فى سُنبُلِهِ إِلّا قَليلًا مِمّا تَأكُلونَ(47)
(Joseph) said, "Cultivate your lands for seven years as usual and preserve the produce with its ears each year except the little amount that you will consume.(47)
ثُمَّ يَأتى مِن بَعدِ ذٰلِكَ سَبعٌ شِدادٌ يَأكُلنَ ما قَدَّمتُم لَهُنَّ إِلّا قَليلًا مِمّا تُحصِنونَ(48)
After this will ensue seven years of famine in which all the grain that you have stored will be consumed except a small quantity.(48)
ثُمَّ يَأتى مِن بَعدِ ذٰلِكَ عامٌ فيهِ يُغاثُ النّاسُ وَفيهِ يَعصِرونَ(49)
Then there will be a year with plenty of rain and people will have sufficient milk and other produce."(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 ordered his people to bring Joseph into his presence. When the messenger came to Joseph, he (Joseph) said, "Ask your master about the women who cut their hands. My Lord knows all about 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 about their attempt to seduce Joseph. They replied, "God forbid! We do not know of any bad in Joseph." The wife of the King said, "Now the truth has come to light. It was I who tried to seduce Joseph. He is, certainly, a truthful man."(51)
ذٰلِكَ لِيَعلَمَ أَنّى لَم أَخُنهُ بِالغَيبِ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ لا يَهدى كَيدَ الخائِنينَ(52)
(Joseph said), "This proves that I was not disloyal to the King in his absence. God does not grant success to the efforts of disloyal people.(52)
۞ وَما أُبَرِّئُ نَفسى ۚ إِنَّ النَّفسَ لَأَمّارَةٌ بِالسّوءِ إِلّا ما رَحِمَ رَبّى ۚ إِنَّ رَبّى غَفورٌ رَحيمٌ(53)
"I do not think that I am free from weakness; all human souls are susceptible to evil except for those to whom my Lord has granted mercy. My Lord is certainly All-forgiving and All-merciful."(53)
وَقالَ المَلِكُ ائتونى بِهِ أَستَخلِصهُ لِنَفسى ۖ فَلَمّا كَلَّمَهُ قالَ إِنَّكَ اليَومَ لَدَينا مَكينٌ أَمينٌ(54)
The King ordered his men to bring Joseph before him. He wanted to grant him a high office. The King said to Joseph, "From now on you will be an honored and trusted person among us".(54)
قالَ اجعَلنى عَلىٰ خَزائِنِ الأَرضِ ۖ إِنّى حَفيظٌ عَليمٌ(55)
Joseph said, "Put me in charge of the treasuries of the land. I know how to manage them."(55)
وَكَذٰلِكَ مَكَّنّا لِيوسُفَ فِى الأَرضِ يَتَبَوَّأُ مِنها حَيثُ يَشاءُ ۚ نُصيبُ بِرَحمَتِنا مَن نَشاءُ ۖ وَلا نُضيعُ أَجرَ المُحسِنينَ(56)
Thus, We settled Joseph in the land to live wherever he wanted. We grant a due share of Our mercy to whomever We want and We do not ignore the reward of the righteous ones.(56)
وَلَأَجرُ الءاخِرَةِ خَيرٌ لِلَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَكانوا يَتَّقونَ(57)
The reward in the next life is certainly better for the faithful ones who have observed piety in this life.(57)
وَجاءَ إِخوَةُ يوسُفَ فَدَخَلوا عَلَيهِ فَعَرَفَهُم وَهُم لَهُ مُنكِرونَ(58)
Joseph's brothers came to him. When they entered his court, he recognized them. They did not know him.(58)
وَلَمّا جَهَّزَهُم بِجَهازِهِم قالَ ائتونى بِأَخٍ لَكُم مِن أَبيكُم ۚ أَلا تَرَونَ أَنّى أوفِى الكَيلَ وَأَنا۠ خَيرُ المُنزِلينَ(59)
When he had furnished them with provisions, he said, "Next time, bring me your other brother from your father. As you can see, I give each of you a certain amount of grain; I am a polite host.(59)
فَإِن لَم تَأتونى بِهِ فَلا كَيلَ لَكُم عِندى وَلا تَقرَبونِ(60)
If you do not bring him, do not come to us for we shall not give you any more grain."(60)
قالوا سَنُرٰوِدُ عَنهُ أَباهُ وَإِنّا لَفٰعِلونَ(61)
Joseph's brothers said, "We shall try to influence his father to send him with us and we shall be successful".(61)
وَقالَ لِفِتيٰنِهِ اجعَلوا بِضٰعَتَهُم فى رِحالِهِم لَعَلَّهُم يَعرِفونَها إِذَا انقَلَبوا إِلىٰ أَهلِهِم لَعَلَّهُم يَرجِعونَ(62)
Then Joseph told his people to put his brothers' money back into their bags so that perhaps they would recognize it, when at home, and come back to Egypt once 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 told him, "Father, (unless we take our brother) they will refuse us one further measure of grain. Send our brother with us so that we can obtain that measure. We shall watch over him carefully".(63)
قالَ هَل ءامَنُكُم عَلَيهِ إِلّا كَما أَمِنتُكُم عَلىٰ أَخيهِ مِن قَبلُ ۖ فَاللَّهُ خَيرٌ حٰفِظًا ۖ وَهُوَ أَرحَمُ الرّٰحِمينَ(64)
Jacob replied, "How can I trust you after what happened to his brother before? Only God is the best Protector. His mercy is far greater than that of others."(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 opened their baggage, they found that their money had been returned to them. They said, "Father, what more do we want? Our money has been given back to us. We can buy more provisions with this for our family. We shall protect our brother and have one more camel load of grain which is easy to get".(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)
(Jacob) said, "I shall not send him with you until you solemnly promise me before God to return him to me unless you are prevented from doing so." When they gave their promise, he said, "God is the Witness of what we have said".(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)
Jacob then told his sons, "Do not enter the town all together by a single gate, but each of you enter separately. I cannot help you against (the decree of) God. Everyone's destiny is in His hands. I put my trust in Him. Whoever needs a trustee must put his trust in God."(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)
Even though they entered the town as their father had told them, it would not have been of any avail to them against the decree of God. It only served to satisfy Jacob's desire and judgment. He was certainly well versed by Our instruction, but most people do not know.(68)
وَلَمّا دَخَلوا عَلىٰ يوسُفَ ءاوىٰ إِلَيهِ أَخاهُ ۖ قالَ إِنّى أَنا۠ أَخوكَ فَلا تَبتَئِس بِما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(69)
When they entered Joseph's court, he gave lodging to his own brother (Benjamin) and said, "I am your brother. Do not feel sad about whatever they had done".(69)
فَلَمّا جَهَّزَهُم بِجَهازِهِم جَعَلَ السِّقايَةَ فى رَحلِ أَخيهِ ثُمَّ أَذَّنَ مُؤَذِّنٌ أَيَّتُهَا العيرُ إِنَّكُم لَسٰرِقونَ(70)
When he had furnished them with provisions, he placed the King's drinking cup in his own brother's baggage. Then someone shouted, "People of the caravan, you are thieves!"(70)
قالوا وَأَقبَلوا عَلَيهِم ماذا تَفقِدونَ(71)
Joseph's brothers turned around and asked, "What is missing?"(71)
قالوا نَفقِدُ صُواعَ المَلِكِ وَلِمَن جاءَ بِهِ حِملُ بَعيرٍ وَأَنا۠ بِهِ زَعيمٌ(72)
They were told, "The King's drinking cup is missing and whoever brings it will receive a camel's load of grain. I promise you that".(72)
قالوا تَاللَّهِ لَقَد عَلِمتُم ما جِئنا لِنُفسِدَ فِى الأَرضِ وَما كُنّا سٰرِقينَ(73)
Joseph's brothers said, "We swear by God, as you know, that we have not come to spread evil in the land and that we have not committed any theft."(73)
قالوا فَما جَزٰؤُهُ إِن كُنتُم كٰذِبينَ(74)
The Egyptians said, "What do you suggest should be the punishment for the thief, if it is proved that you are lying?"(74)
قالوا جَزٰؤُهُ مَن وُجِدَ فى رَحلِهِ فَهُوَ جَزٰؤُهُ ۚ كَذٰلِكَ نَجزِى الظّٰلِمينَ(75)
Joseph's brothers replied, "In whosoever baggage it is found, that person will be your bondsman. Thus is the punishment of the unjust."(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)
They searched their baggage before that of Joseph's real brother where at last they found it. Thus, We showed Joseph how to plan this; he would not have been able to take his brother under the King's law unless God had wanted it to be so. We give a high rank to whomever We want. Over every knowledgeable person 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)
(Joseph's) brothers said, "It's no wonder that he steals; a brother of his had stolen before him." Joseph noted their remarks, but did not utter a word. He said (to himself), "You are in a worse position. God knows best what you allege."(77)
قالوا يٰأَيُّهَا العَزيزُ إِنَّ لَهُ أَبًا شَيخًا كَبيرًا فَخُذ أَحَدَنا مَكانَهُ ۖ إِنّا نَرىٰكَ مِنَ المُحسِنينَ(78)
They said, "Noble Prince, his father is very old so please take one of us in his place. We believe that you are a righteous person".(78)
قالَ مَعاذَ اللَّهِ أَن نَأخُذَ إِلّا مَن وَجَدنا مَتٰعَنا عِندَهُ إِنّا إِذًا لَظٰلِمونَ(79)
He replied, "God forbid! How could I take someone in place of the thief? In doing so I would be committing injustice."(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 lost all hope (of convincing the Prince), they moved into a corner whispering to each other. The eldest among them said, "Do you not remember that you had solemnly promised our father to return Benjamin to him and that before this you had broken your promise concerning Joseph? I shall never leave this land until my father gives me permission or God decides for me; He is the best Judge.(80)
ارجِعوا إِلىٰ أَبيكُم فَقولوا يٰأَبانا إِنَّ ابنَكَ سَرَقَ وَما شَهِدنا إِلّا بِما عَلِمنا وَما كُنّا لِلغَيبِ حٰفِظينَ(81)
"Go to our father and tell him, 'Father, your son committed theft. We say only what we have seen and we have no control over the unseen.(81)
وَسـَٔلِ القَريَةَ الَّتى كُنّا فيها وَالعيرَ الَّتى أَقبَلنا فيها ۖ وَإِنّا لَصٰدِقونَ(82)
You can ask the people of the town where we were and the caravan we met there. We are certainly telling the truth."(82)
قالَ بَل سَوَّلَت لَكُم أَنفُسُكُم أَمرًا ۖ فَصَبرٌ جَميلٌ ۖ عَسَى اللَّهُ أَن يَأتِيَنى بِهِم جَميعًا ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ العَليمُ الحَكيمُ(83)
(When he heard this), Jacob said, "Your souls have tempted you to make up the whole story. Let us be patient for perhaps God will bring them all back to me. God is certainly All-knowing and All-wise".(83)
وَتَوَلّىٰ عَنهُم وَقالَ يٰأَسَفىٰ عَلىٰ يوسُفَ وَابيَضَّت عَيناهُ مِنَ الحُزنِ فَهُوَ كَظيمٌ(84)
(Jacob) turned away from them saying, "Alas, Joseph is lost!" He wept continuously in his grief until, in suppressing his anger, his eyes turned white.(84)
قالوا تَاللَّهِ تَفتَؤُا۟ تَذكُرُ يوسُفَ حَتّىٰ تَكونَ حَرَضًا أَو تَكونَ مِنَ الهٰلِكينَ(85)
They said, "You are always remembering Joseph. By God, it will either make you sick or you will die".(85)
قالَ إِنَّما أَشكوا بَثّى وَحُزنى إِلَى اللَّهِ وَأَعلَمُ مِنَ اللَّهِ ما لا تَعلَمونَ(86)
He replied, "I only complain of my sorrow and grief to God. I know about 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)
My sons, go and search for Joseph and his brother and do not despair of receiving comfort from God; only the unbelievers despair of receiving comfort from Him."(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 entered Joseph's court, they said, "Noble Prince, hardship has struck us and our people. We have come with a little money, so give us a measure of grain and be charitable to us. God will give the reward to those who give charity".(88)
قالَ هَل عَلِمتُم ما فَعَلتُم بِيوسُفَ وَأَخيهِ إِذ أَنتُم جٰهِلونَ(89)
Joseph asked them, "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)
Then they inquired, "Are you Joseph?" He said, "Yes, I am Joseph and this is my brother. God has indeed been gracious to us. One who exercises patience and observes piety should know that God does not ignore the reward of the righteous ones."(90)
قالوا تَاللَّهِ لَقَد ءاثَرَكَ اللَّهُ عَلَينا وَإِن كُنّا لَخٰطِـٔينَ(91)
They said, "We swear by God that He has given preference to you over us and we have sinned".(91)
قالَ لا تَثريبَ عَلَيكُمُ اليَومَ ۖ يَغفِرُ اللَّهُ لَكُم ۖ وَهُوَ أَرحَمُ الرّٰحِمينَ(92)
(Joseph) said, "No one will blame you on this day. God will forgive you; He is more Merciful than others.(92)
اذهَبوا بِقَميصى هٰذا فَأَلقوهُ عَلىٰ وَجهِ أَبى يَأتِ بَصيرًا وَأتونى بِأَهلِكُم أَجمَعينَ(93)
Take my shirt and place it unto my father's face. This will restore his eye-sight. Then bring the whole family to me."(93)
وَلَمّا فَصَلَتِ العيرُ قالَ أَبوهُم إِنّى لَأَجِدُ ريحَ يوسُفَ ۖ لَولا أَن تُفَنِّدونِ(94)
When the caravan left the town, their father said, "I smell Joseph's scent. I hope that you will not accuse me of senility".(94)
قالوا تَاللَّهِ إِنَّكَ لَفى ضَلٰلِكَ القَديمِ(95)
His people said, "By God, you are still making the same old error".(95)
فَلَمّا أَن جاءَ البَشيرُ أَلقىٰهُ عَلىٰ وَجهِهِ فَارتَدَّ بَصيرًا ۖ قالَ أَلَم أَقُل لَكُم إِنّى أَعلَمُ مِنَ اللَّهِ ما لا تَعلَمونَ(96)
When someone brought him the glad news, Joseph's shirt was placed on his face and his eye-sight was restored, he said, "Did I not tell you that I know about God that which you do not know?"(96)
قالوا يٰأَبانَا استَغفِر لَنا ذُنوبَنا إِنّا كُنّا خٰطِـٔينَ(97)
They said, "Father, ask God to forgive our sins; we have certainly sinned".(97)
قالَ سَوفَ أَستَغفِرُ لَكُم رَبّى ۖ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الغَفورُ الرَّحيمُ(98)
He said, "I shall ask my Lord to forgive you; He is All-forgiving and All-merciful."(98)
فَلَمّا دَخَلوا عَلىٰ يوسُفَ ءاوىٰ إِلَيهِ أَبَوَيهِ وَقالَ ادخُلوا مِصرَ إِن شاءَ اللَّهُ ءامِنينَ(99)
When they all came to Joseph, he welcomed his parents and said, "Enter the town in peace, if God wants it to be so."(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 raised his parents on the throne and they prostrated themselves before him (Joseph). He said, "This is the meaning of my dream which God has made come true. He has granted me many favors. He set me free from prison and brought you to me from the desert after having ended the enmity which satan sowed between my brothers and I. My Lord is certainly kind to whomever He wants. It is He who is All-forgiving 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)
"My Lord, You have given me the kingdom and taught me the meaning of dreams. You are the Creator of the heavens and the earth. You are my Guardian in this world and in the life to come. Make me die as one who has submitted to the Will of God and unite me with the righteous ones."(101)
ذٰلِكَ مِن أَنباءِ الغَيبِ نوحيهِ إِلَيكَ ۖ وَما كُنتَ لَدَيهِم إِذ أَجمَعوا أَمرَهُم وَهُم يَمكُرونَ(102)
This is some of the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, (Muhammad). You were not with them when Joseph's brothers agreed on devising their evil plans.(102)
وَما أَكثَرُ النّاسِ وَلَو حَرَصتَ بِمُؤمِنينَ(103)
However hard you try, most people will not believe.(103)
وَما تَسـَٔلُهُم عَلَيهِ مِن أَجرٍ ۚ إِن هُوَ إِلّا ذِكرٌ لِلعٰلَمينَ(104)
You do not ask any reward for your preaching (of Our guidance to them). This (Quran) is a guide for the people of the world (human beings and jinn).(104)
وَكَأَيِّن مِن ءايَةٍ فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ يَمُرّونَ عَلَيها وَهُم عَنها مُعرِضونَ(105)
There is much evidence (of the existence of God) in the heavens and the earth which they see, but ignore.(105)
وَما يُؤمِنُ أَكثَرُهُم بِاللَّهِ إِلّا وَهُم مُشرِكونَ(106)
Most of them do not believe in God; they are but pagans.(106)
أَفَأَمِنوا أَن تَأتِيَهُم غٰشِيَةٌ مِن عَذابِ اللَّهِ أَو تَأتِيَهُمُ السّاعَةُ بَغتَةً وَهُم لا يَشعُرونَ(107)
Do they feel safe from God's overwhelming torment or of the sudden approach of the Day of Judgment while they are unaware?(107)
قُل هٰذِهِ سَبيلى أَدعوا إِلَى اللَّهِ ۚ عَلىٰ بَصيرَةٍ أَنا۠ وَمَنِ اتَّبَعَنى ۖ وَسُبحٰنَ اللَّهِ وَما أَنا۠ مِنَ المُشرِكينَ(108)
(Muhammad), say, "This is my way. I and all my followers invite you to God with proper understanding. God is most Glorious. I am not a pagan."(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)
The Messengers whom We sent before you were mere men of the people of the towns. We gave them revelations. Have they (the unbelievers) not travelled sufficiently through the land to see how terrible the end was of those who lived before. The next life is, certainly, better for the pious ones. Will you not then take heed?(109)
حَتّىٰ إِذَا استَيـَٔسَ الرُّسُلُ وَظَنّوا أَنَّهُم قَد كُذِبوا جاءَهُم نَصرُنا فَنُجِّىَ مَن نَشاءُ ۖ وَلا يُرَدُّ بَأسُنا عَنِ القَومِ المُجرِمينَ(110)
When at last the Messengers lost all hope of achieving success in their task and thought that everyone had called them liars, We gave them victory and saved whomever We chose to save. The guilty ones can not escape Our wrath.(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)
In their story, there is a lesson for the people of understanding. It is not a legend but a confirmation of what exists (in the Torah). It (the Quran) has details about everything. It is a guide and mercy for those who have faith.(111)
