Surah Yusuf (12) 22/07/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

The sadness of Yaqub (AS) and the lies of the brothers of Yusuf (AS) 12/18 And they came with false blood on his shirt. He said, “I don’t believe this story; you have made it up. I will remain steadfast in the face of your conspiracy, and Allah it is Whose help is sought in the kind of misfortune you describe to me.”

The ten brothers envied and hated their innocent younger brothers Joseph and Benjamin. Jacob had the wisdom to see that his young and innocent sons wanted protection and to perceive Joseph’s spiritual greatness. But his wisdom, to them, was folly or madness of imbecility, because it touched their self-love, as truth often does. And they relied on the brute strength of numbers-the ten hefty brethren against old Jacob, the lad Joseph, and the boy Benjamin

What sadness for the great Prophet Yaqub (AS) – something many of us can relate to…

Continues tomorrow… Insha Allah
