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.

نَحْنُ نَقُصُّ عَلَيْكَ أَحْسَنَ الْقَصَصِ بِمَا أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ هَٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ وَإِنْ كُنْتَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِ لَمِنَ الْغَافِلِينَ ﴿٣﴾
٣ - (اے پیغمبر) ہم اس قرآن کے ذریعے سے جو ہم نے تمہاری طرف بھیجا ہے تمہیں ایک نہایت اچھا قصہ سناتے ہیں اور تم اس سے پہلے بےخبر تھے .
[12:3] We relate to you, [O Muhammad], the best of stories in what We have revealed to you of this Qur'an although you were, before it, among the unaware.
[Transliteration] Nahnu naqussu 'alaika ahsanal qasasi bimaaa awhainaaa ilaika haazal quraana wa in kunta min qablihee laminal ghaafileen
