سورة يوسف

12. Yusuf

Joseph


Total verses: 111
Revealed in: Mecca

Translations:
- 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.

YOUSUF


وَقَالَ الَّذِي اشْتَرَاهُ مِنْ مِصْرَ لِامْرَأَتِهِ أَكْرِمِي مَثْوَاهُ عَسَىٰ أَنْ يَنْفَعَنَا أَوْ نَتَّخِذَهُ وَلَدًا ۚ وَكَذَٰلِكَ مَكَّنَّا لِيُوسُفَ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلِنُعَلِّمَهُ مِنْ تَأْوِيلِ الْأَحَادِيثِ ۚ وَاللَّهُ غَالِبٌ عَلَىٰ أَمْرِهِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ ﴿٢١﴾
٢١ - اور مصر میں جس شخص نے اس کو خریدا اس نے اپنی بیوی سے (جس کا نام زلیخا تھا) کہا کہ اس کو عزت واکرام سے رکھو عجب نہیں کہ یہ ہمیں فائدہ دے یا ہم اسے بیٹا بنالیں۔ اس طرح ہم نے یوسف کو سرزمین (مصر) میں جگہ دی اور غرض یہ تھی کہ ہم ان کو (خواب کی) باتوں کی تعبیر سکھائیں اور خدا اپنے کام پر غالب ہے لیکن اکثر لوگ نہیں جانتے .
[12:21] And the one from Egypt who bought him said to his wife, "Make his residence comfortable. Perhaps he will benefit us, or we will adopt him as a son." And thus, We established Joseph in the land that We might teach him the interpretation of events. And Allah is predominant over His affair, but most of the people do not know.
[Transliteration] Wa qaalal lazish taraahu mim Misra limra atiheee akrimee maswaahu 'asaaa any-yanfa'anaaa aw nattakhizahoo waladaa, wa kazaalika mak-kannaa li-Yoosufa fil ardi wa linu'allimahoo min taaweelil ahaadees, wallaahu ghaalibun 'alaaa amrihee wa laakinna aksaran naasi laa ya'lamoon
