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.

وَلَمَّا دَخَلُوا مِنْ حَيْثُ أَمَرَهُمْ أَبُوهُمْ مَا كَانَ يُغْنِي عَنْهُمْ مِنَ اللَّهِ مِنْ شَيْءٍ إِلَّا حَاجَةً فِي نَفْسِ يَعْقُوبَ قَضَاهَا ۚ وَإِنَّهُ لَذُو عِلْمٍ لِمَا عَلَّمْنَاهُ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ ﴿٦٨﴾
٦٨ - اور جب وہ ان ان مقامات سے داخل ہوئے جہاں جہاں سے (داخل ہونے کے لیے) باپ نے ان سے کہا تھا تو وہ تدبیر خدا کے حکم کو ذرا بھی نہیں ٹال سکتی تھی ہاں وہ یعقوب کے دل کی خواہش تھی جو انہوں نے پوری کی تھی۔ اور بےشک وہ صاحبِ علم تھے کیونکہ ہم نے ان کو علم سکھایا تھا لیکن اکثر لوگ نہیں جانتے .
[12:68] And when they entered from where their father had ordered them, it did not avail them against Allah at all except [it was] a need within the soul of Jacob, which he satisfied. And indeed, he was a possessor of knowledge because of what We had taught him, but most of the people do not know.
[Transliteration] Wa lammaa dakhaloo min haisu amarahum aboohum maa kaana yughnee 'anhum minal laahi min shai'in illaa haajatan fee nafsi Ya'qooba qadaahaa, wa innahoo lazoo 'ilmil limaa 'allamnaahu wa laakinna aksaran naasi laa ya'lamoon
