Juz 13
So when they did not anticipate anything from him, they went away and started consulting each other; their eldest brother said, “Do you not know that your father has taken from you an oath upon Allah, and before this, how you had failed in respect of Yusuf? Therefore I will not move from here until my father permits or Allah commands me; and His is the best command.” (80) Return unto your father and say: O our father! Lo! thy son hath stolen. We testify only to that which we know; we are not guardians of the Unseen. (81) You can ask the people of the town where we were and the caravan we met there. We are certainly telling the truth." (82) (When he heard this), Jacob said, "Your souls have tempted you to make up the whole story. Let us be patient for perhaps God will bring them all back to me. God is certainly All-knowing and All-wise". (83) Then he turned his back to them, and said: "O my grief for Joseph!" His eyes whitened with grief and he was choked up with sorrow trying to suppress his grief. (84) They said: By Allah, thou wilt never cease remembering Joseph till thy health is ruined or thou art of those who perish! (85) He said: I expose my distress and anguish only unto Allah, and I know from Allah that which ye know not. (86) Depart, my sons, and search out tidings of Joseph and his brother. Do not despair of God's comfort; of God's comfort no man despairs, excepting the people of the unbelievers.' (87) Then, when they came (back) into (Joseph's) presence they said: "O exalted one! distress has seized us and our family: we have (now) brought but scanty capital: so pay us full measure, (we pray thee), and treat it as charity to us: for Allah doth reward the charitable." (88) He said: "Know ye how ye dealt with Joseph and his brother, not knowing (what ye were doing)?" (89) Then they inquired, "Are you Joseph?" He said, "Yes, I am Joseph and this is my brother. God has indeed been gracious to us. One who exercises patience and observes piety should know that God does not ignore the reward of the righteous ones." (90) [The brothers] said: "By God! Most certainly has God raised thee high above us, and we were indeed but sinners!" (91) (Joseph) said, "No one will blame you on this day. God will forgive you; He is more Merciful than others. (92) "Go with this shirt of mine, and cast it over the face of my father, he will become clear-sighted, and bring to me all your family." (93)
