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.

قَالَ بَلْ سَوَّلَتْ لَكُمْ أَنْفُسُكُمْ أَمْرًا ۖ فَصَبْرٌ جَمِيلٌ ۖ عَسَى اللَّهُ أَنْ يَأْتِيَنِي بِهِمْ جَمِيعًا ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ ﴿٨٣﴾
٨٣ - (جب انہوں نے یہ بات یعقوب سے آ کر کہی تو) انہوں نے کہا کہ (حقیقت یوں نہیں ہے) بلکہ یہ بات تم نے اپنے دل سے بنالی ہے تو صبر ہی بہتر ہے۔ عجب نہیں کہ خدا ان سب کو میرے پاس لے آئے۔ بےشک وہ دانا (اور) حکمت والا ہے .
[12:83] [Jacob] said, "Rather, your souls have enticed you to something, so patience is most fitting. Perhaps Allah will bring them to me all together. Indeed it is He who is the Knowing, the Wise."
