Juz 13
When they came to Joseph he made his brother his guest, and said: "I am your brother. So do not grieve for what they had done." (69) Then, while Joseph was having their provisions loaded, he put his drinking-cup in his brother's saddlebag. And then a herald cried: "Travellers, you are thieves." (70) They said, turning to them, 'What is it that you are missing?' (71) They said: We have lost the king's cup, and he who bringeth it shall have a camel-load, and I (said Joseph) am answerable for it. (72) They said, “By Allah, you know very well that we did not come here to cause turmoil in the land, and nor are we thieves!” (73) (The Egyptians) said: "What then shall be the penalty of this, if ye are (proved) to have lied?" (74) They said: his meed shall be that he, in whose pack it is found, shall himself be recompense thereof. Thus we recompense the wrong-doers. (75) Then Joseph began searching their bags before searching his own brother's bag. Then he brought forth the drinking-cup from his brother's bag. Thus did We contrive to support Joseph. He had no right, according to the religion of the king (i.e. the law of Egypt), to take his brother, unless Allah so willed. We exalt whomsoever We will over others by several degrees. And above all those who know is the One Who truly knows. (76) ۞ They [(Yusuf's (Joseph) brothers] said: "If he steals, there was a brother of his [Yusuf (Joseph)] who did steal before (him)." But these things did Yusuf (Joseph) keep in himself, revealing not the secrets to them. He said (within himself): "You are in worst case, and Allah knows best the truth of what you assert!" (77) They said: Aziz! verily he hath a father, an old man very aged; so take one of us in his stead; verily we behold thee to be of the well-doers. (78) He replied, "God forbid! How could I take someone in place of the thief? In doing so I would be committing injustice." (79)
