9. Kill Yusuf or cast him forth into some land so that your father's face may only remain towardsyou. And
thereafter berighteous.
10. One of them said. 'Kill not Yusuf, and cast him into a dark well that any traveler may take him away ifyou are
to do.'
11. They said, 'O Our father! What happened toyou thatyou are not trusting us regarding Yusuf, and we are his
well wishers.
12. Send him forth with us tomorrow that he may eat fruits and play, and no doubt, we are his watchmen.
13. He said, 'It will grieve me that you should take him away, and I fear that wolf may eat him while youremain
unaware of him.'
14. They said, if the wolf eats him, and we are a party then we are of no use.'
15. Then when they took him away, and all agreed that he should be put in a dark well, and Werevealed to him
that necessarily you shall inform them of this doing while they shall not beknowing.
16. And at night they came to their father weeping.
17. They said, 'O our father! we went awayracing, and left Yusuf near our provisions, then the wolf ate him, and
you would not believe us, though we may be true.
18. And they brought his shirt stained with false blood. He said, 'Your hearts have made a thing for you, then
patience is good; and I seek help only from Allah against what you describe.
19. And there came a Caravan, they sent their water carrier he then let down his bucket. He Said, 'Hurrah'; what a
good news, this is a boy,' and concealed him as a treasure And Allahknows what they do.
20. And the brothers sold him for a mean price on a counted Durham, and they had no inclination in him.
21. And the man of Egypt who bought him said to his wife, 'keep him honorably, perchance he may profit us, or
we may take him as son. And thus We established Yusuf in the land and in order that We may teach him to
draw conclusions of the discourses. And Allah is Dominant over His affairs, but most menknow not.
22. And when hereached to his full strength, We bestowed him wisdom andknowledge. And thus Werecompense
the righteous.
23. And she, in whose house he was, allured him lest he may control his self. And bolted all the doors, and she
said, 'Comes I say to you.' He said, 'Allah be my refuge that Aziz is my lord that is to say nourisher. He has
kept me very well. No doubt, the unjust never prosper.
24. And no doubt, the woman desired him, and he would also have desired her, if he had seen the proof of his
Lord. Thus We did, in order that We might avert from him evil and indecency. No doubt, he is of my selected
bondmen.

25. And both ran towards the door, and the woman tore his shirt from behind, and both met the husband of the
woman near the door. She said 'what is the punishment of him who desired evil withyour wife, but that he
should be imprisoned or a painful chastisement?'
26. He said, 'she allured me lest I may protect myself and a witness of the household of the woman bore witness,
if his shirt is torn from before, then the woman is true and he is a liar.
27. And if his shirt is torn from behind, then the woman is a liar and he is truthful.
28. Then when Aziz saw his shirt torn from behind, he said 'no doubt, this is the device of you women.' No doubt'
your device is great.
29. 'O Yusuf, do not think of it. AndO woman! Ask forgiveness of your sin. No doubt. You are one of the sinners.
30. And certain women in the city said, 'The wife of Aziz allures the hearts of her young boy. No doubt, his love has
deepened in her heart. We find her infatuated with love openly.
31. Then when Zalikha heard their whispering then she sent for them and prepared for them cushioned couches,
and gave to each of them aknife, and said to Yusuf, 'Come forth to them.' And when the women saw Yusuf,
they began to speak of his greatness, and cut their, hands and said 'Holy is Allah,' he is not a mankind, he is
not but a noble angel.
32. Zalikha said, 'then this is he about whomyou used toreproach me, and no doubt, I desired to allure his heart'
then he preserved himself. And no doubt, if he will not do what I say to him, then necessarily he will be put in
prison and surely he shall bear insult.
33. Yusuf said, 'O my Lord, prison is dearer to me than the work to which she calls me. And ifyou shall not turn
their guile from me, then I shall incline towards them and will be ignorant.
34. Then hisLord heard his prayer, and turned the guile of the women from him. No doubt, He Hears, Knows.
35. Then even after seeing all signs, the same previous thought came to their mind that they should put him in
prison for a period.
36. And two young men entered the prison with him. One of them said, 'I dreamed that I press wine' and the other
said, 'I dreamed that there are some breads on my head whereof the birds are eating. Tell us its interpretation.
No doubt, we see yourighteous.
37. Yusuf said, 'the food which you use to get, will not come to you, but I shall tellyou the interpretation thereof
before it comes toyou, this is of those knowledges which my Lord has taught me. No doubt, I did not concede
to the religion of the people who do not believe in Allah and they are therejecters of the Hereafter.
38. And I followed the religion of my fathers Ibrahim and Ishaque and Yaqub. It is not for us to associate anything
with Allah. That is a grace of Allah upon mankind and us but most men thank not.
39. 'O my two fellow prisoners; are separateLords better or Allah theOneOmnipotent?
40. You worship not besides Him but only names which you and your fathers have carved out. Allah has sent down
no authority for them. There is no judgement but of Allah. He commanded not to worship anyone besides Him.
This is the rightreligion, but most menknow not.
41. 'O my two fellow prisoners! As for one ofyou he will serve wine for drink to his lord(King), and as for the
other, he will be crucified, and the birds will eat of his head. The matter about which you inquired has been
decreed.
42. And Yusuf said to one whom he considered would be saved of the two, 'mention me beforeyour lord, then
Satan (The evil) made him forget to mention him to his lord then Yusuf continued in the prison for several
years more.
43. And the King said, 'I saw in a dream seven fat cows that they are being eaten by seven lean cows, and seven
green ears and seven others dry. O courtiers! Answer to my dream if youknow interpretation of the dreams.'
44. They said, 'these are confused dreams, and weknow not the interpretation of dreams.'
45. And the one who was saved of the two said when he remembered after a long time, 'I will tellyou its
interpretation, send me forth.'
46. 'O Yusuf!O man of truth! Give us interpretationregarding seven fat cows which are being eaten by seven lean
ones and seven green ears and the other seven dry; perchance, I mayreturn to the people, perchance they
learn.
47. He said. 'You will do cultivation for seven continuous years, then what youreap, leave it in its ear, but a little
which you may eat.
48. Then after it there shall come seven hard years, that shall eat up whatyou had stored up for them before, but
a little which you may save.
49. Then thereafter there shall come a year wherein people will haverain and in which they will press juice
50. And the king said, 'bring him to me, then when the messenger came to him, he said, 'return toyour lord, then
ask him, 'what about the women who had cut their hands? No doubt my Lord knows their guile.
51. The King said 'O women' what businessyou had when you desired to allure the heart of Yusuf. They said. 'Holy

is Allah, we did not find any evil in him. The wife of Aziz said, 'now thereality is discovered, I desired to allure
his heart and no doubt, he is truthful.
52. Yusuf said, 'I have done this because Aziz shouldknow that I betrayed him not behind his back, and Allah
allows not the guile of betrayers.
53. And I do not hold my soul free from sin' no doubt the soul is wont to command evil but that on whom my Lord
has mercy. No doubt, my Lord is Forgiving' Merciful.
54. The King said, bring him to me that I may choose him especially for myself. Then, when he talked to him said
'certainly today, you are a man dignified, trusted with us.
55. Yusuf said, 'set me over the treasures of earth. No doubt, I am watchful, knowing.
56. And thus We gave control to Yusuf over this land wherein he might live wherever he wished. We cause Our
mercy to reach whom We please, and We waste not the reward of therighteous.
57. And surely thereward of the Hereafter is better for those who believed and remained duty-bound.
58. And the brethren of Yusuf, came, then appeared before him and Yusuf recognised them but they remained
unaware of him.
59. And when he got ready their baggage, he said, 'bring your stepbrother to me, doyou not see that I give full
measure and I am the best host.
60. But if you bring him not to me, then there is not measure for you with me and approach me not.
61. They said, we shall desire him from his father, and we are certainly to do it.
62. And Yusuf said to his servants 'put their capital in their saddlebags, haply they may recognize it when they go
back to their home, per-chance they may return.
63. Then when they returned to their father, they said, 'O our father, the food-grain has been denied to us, so
send with us our brother that we may bring food-grain and we shall surely safeguard him.
64. He said, 'May I trust you about him likewise I trusted you before about his brother.' Then Allah is the best
Guard He is the Most Merciful of the merciful.
65. And when they opened their goods, they found their capital returned to them. They said, 'O Our father, now
what more should we desire? Here is our capital that has beenreturned to us, and we shall bring food-grain for
our family and we shall guard our brother, and we shall find an extra camel load. This offering is nothing
before a King.
66. He said, 'I will never send him withyou, untilyou give me this solemn pledge of Allah thatyou will be surely
bring him back, but that you may be encompassed' Then when they gave Yaqub solemn pledge, he said, 'Allah
is responsible over what we say.'
67. And said he, 'O my sons, enter not by one door, but enter you by separate gates. I cannot saveyou against
Allah All decisions belong to Allah I relied on Him, and let the relyingrely on Him.
68. And when they entered after the manner their father had commanded, it could not save them against Allah,
yes there was a desire in the heart of Yaqub which he fulfilled. And verily, he is the man ofknowledge byOur
teaching, but most menknow not.
69. And they went to Yusuf. He gave his brother a place near himself, he said' 'believe, I amyour brother therefore
be not grieved of whatever they do.'
70. Then when he madeready their baggage, he put the drinking cup in the saddlebag of his brother. Thereafter a
Crier cried. 'O men of Caravan, no doubt. You are thieves.'
71. They said, and turned to them, 'what it is that you find not.
72. hey said, 'we do not find the king' measuring cup. And whosoever will bring it. He shall have a camel's load and
I am his guarantor.
73. They said. 'By God,you are well aware that we came not for creating mischief in the land, nor we are thieves.
74. They said. 'What is the penalty of him, if you be liars?
75. They said, 'its penalty is, that he in whose baggage it is found, be himself the servant inrecompense. Thus is
the punishment of the unjust at our place.
76. Then first he began the search of their bags before the bag of his brother; then he took it out from the bag of
his brother. We taught Yusuf thus to plan. He could not take his brother under the King'sLaw but this that
Allah willed. We exalt in degrees whomsoever We please. And above every man of knowledge there isOne of
More Knowledge.
77. The brothers said, 'if he commits theft, then no doubt his brother has already committed theft before, then
Yusuf kept this thing secret in his heart and did not disclose it to them. He said within himself, 'you are at
worse place, and Allah knows well what you fabricate.
78. They said, 'O Aziz, he has a father, aged and advanced inyears, so take one of us in his place. No doubt we
are seeing your favours.
79. He said, 'be refuge of Allah that we should take any other but him with whom we found our goods then we
shall surely be unjust.
80. Then when they were disappointed of him they began conferring going apart. His elder brother said, 'doyou
notremember thatyour father had taken a solemn pledge of Allah fromyou, and before this howyou
committed mistake regarding Yusuf? Then I shall not move from this place until my father permits or Allah
commands me and His command is best.
81. Return you all toyour father, and say, 'O our fatherverilyyour son has committed theft, and we had become
witnesses to this much what we had in ourknowledge, and we were not guardians over the unseen.
82. And Enquirer of the town wherein we were and the Caravan in which we came. And no doubt, we are truthful.
83. He said, 'your souls have made for you some excuse. Then patience is good. It is near that Allah may bring
them all to me. No doubt, it is He the Knowing the Wise.
84. And he turned away his face from him and said, 'Ah, woe on the separation of Yusuf, and his eyes were
whitened with grief and he suppressed his anger.
85. They said, 'By-God, you shall ever continue to remember Yusuf until you approach grave or pass away with
your life.
86. He said, 'I cry out for assistance in my anguish and sorrow unto Allah, and Iknow those glories of Allah which
youknow not.
87. 'O my sons! Go and search for Yusuf and his brother and despair not of Allah's mercy. No doubt, none despair
of the mercy of Allah but a people disbelieving.
88. Then when they reached Yusuf, they said, 'O Aziz, distress hasreached us and our family, and we have come
with worthless capital, then you give us full measure and be charitable to us. No doubt, Allahrewards the
charitable.
89. He said, 'Are you aware whatyou did with Yusuf and his brother, whenyou were ignorant.
90. They said, 'Are youreally Yusuf,' He said, 'I am Yusuf and this is my brother No doubt, Allah has favoured us.
Verily whosoeverrefrains and be patient, then Allah wastes not thereward of therighteous.
91. They said, 'By God, surely Allah has preferred you above us, and no doubt, we had been sinners.
92. He said, 'there is noreproach today uponyou. May Allah forgive you. And He is the Most Merciful of the
merciful.
93. Go with this shirt of mine, put it on my father's face' he shallrecover his sight. And bring all your family
together.
94. When the Caravan departed from Egypt, their father here said, 'no doubt, I find the scent of Yusuf, if you say
me not that he is doted.
95. The sons said, 'By Allah, you are infatuated with the same old love.
96. Then when the bearer of lad-tidings came' he laid that shirt on the face of Yaqub, forthwith his sight came
back. He said, 'did I not say toyou hat I know those glories of Allah whichyou know not.
97. They said, 'O our father, beg forgiveness of our sins, no doubt, we are sinful.
98. He said, 'soon I shall beg my Lord to forgive you.' He is theForgiving, the Merciful.
99. Then when they all reached Yusuf, he offered a place near him to his father and, mother and said. 'Enter'
Egypt if Allah will with security.
100. And he seated his father and mother on the throne, and all fell down prostrate for him, and Yusuf said, 'O my
father, this is the interpretation of-my first vision. Verily myLord has made it true. And no doubt, He favoured
me that He brought forth me from the prison, and broughtyou all from thevillage after Satan had created
dissension between my brothers and me. Surely my Lord makes easy any thing He pleases. Verily He is the
knowing, Wise.
101. 'O my Lord! Verily You have bestowed me a Kingdom and taught me to draw conclusion of some discourses.O
Creater of heavens and earth, You are my Helper in this world and the Hereafter. Make me die as Muslim and
join me with those who are worthy to be very close to You.
102. These are some tidings of Unseen, which Wereveal toyou. And you were not with them, when they agreed
upon their plan, and they were devising.
103. And most men will not believe; though you eagerly desire it.
104. Andyou do not ask any wage for it; it is not but admonition to the whole world.
105. And how many a sign there is in the heavens and earth that most men pass by them and are unaware of them.
106. And most of them believe not in Allah but as associators.
107. Have they become fearless from this that they maybe encompassed by the torment of Allah or the sudden
coming of the Hour upon them while they are unaware?
108. Say you, 'This is my way; I call towards Allah. I and those who follow my footsteps have insight. And Holy is
Allah: and I am not an associators.
109. And all those who were sent as messengers beforeyou were men, whom We revealed, and all wereresidents

of the cities. Have they not journeyed in the land, that they may see, what became the end of those before
them? And no doubt, the abode of the Hereafter is better for the duty-bound. Have you not then wisdom?
110. And so much so, when the messengers had no hope of outer causes and the people thought that the
messengers had given them wrong information at that time,Our help came, then whomsoever We willed was
rescued. AndOur torments cannot be averted from the sinful people.
111. No doubt, the eyes of the wise men are opened by their tidings. It is not a discourse concocted, but a
confirmation of what went before and a detail explanation of every thing, and guidance and a mercy for the
Muslims
