سورة يوسف

12. Yusuf


Total verses: 111
Revealed in: Mecca

- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that narrates the edifying and enthralling life experience of the noble prophet and interpreter of dreams, Joseph—son of Jacob, son of Isaac, son of Abraham—calling it "the fairest of stories," an inspirational triumph of morality and faith. "Yūsuf" is the Arabic for "Joseph", whose well-known story is told in this surah. Even though the surah primarily deals with the story of Joseph, it is framed by a three-verse introduction about the Quran and a ten-verse epilogue about the Meccans' response, the punishment met by earlier disbelievers, and encouragement for the Prophet.

رَبِّ قَدْ آتَيْتَنِي مِنَ الْمُلْكِ وَعَلَّمْتَنِي مِنْ تَأْوِيلِ الْأَحَادِيثِ ۚ فَاطِرَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ أَنْتَ وَلِيِّي فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ ۖ تَوَفَّنِي مُسْلِمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَ ﴿١٠١﴾
١٠١ - (جب یہ سب باتیں ہولیں تو یوسف نے خدا سے دعا کی کہ) اے میرے پروردگار تو نے مجھ کو حکومت سے بہرہ دیا اور خوابوں کی تعبیر کا علم بخشا۔ اے آسمانوں اور زمین کے پیدا کرنے والے تو ہی دنیا اور آخرت میں میرا کارساز ہے۔ تو مجھے (دنیا سے) اپنی اطاعت (کی حالت) میں اٹھائیو اور (آخرت میں) اپنے نیک بندوں میں داخل کیجیو .
[12:101] My Lord, You have given me [something] of sovereignty and taught me of the interpretation of dreams. Creator of the heavens and earth, You are my protector in this world and in the Hereafter. Cause me to die a Muslim and join me with the righteous."
