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.

Detailed verse by verse explanation of Quran in Urdu by Late Dr. Israr Ahmad.

وَاتَّبَعْتُ مِلَّةَ آبَائِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ ۚ مَا كَانَ لَنَا أَنْ نُشْرِكَ بِاللَّهِ مِنْ شَيْءٍ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ مِنْ فَضْلِ اللَّهِ عَلَيْنَا وَعَلَى النَّاسِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَشْكُرُونَ ﴿٣٨﴾
٣٨ - اور اپنے باپ دادا ابراہیم اور اسحاق اور یعقوب کے مذہب پر چلتا ہوں۔ ہمیں شایاں نہیں ہے کہ کسی چیز کو خدا کے ساتھ شریک بنائیں۔ یہ خدا کا فضل ہے ہم پر بھی اور لوگوں پر بھی ہے لیکن اکثر لوگ شکر نہیں کرتے .
[12:38] And I have followed the religion of my fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. And it was not for us to associate anything with Allah. That is from the favor of Allah upon us and upon the people, but most of the people are not grateful.
