Surah Yusuf (12) 24/07/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Yusuf (AS) reaches adulthood and faces another great challenge – the challenge of temptation!

12/23 But she in whose house he was, sought to seduce him from his (true) self: she fastened the doors, and said: “Now come, thou (dear one)!” He said: “Allah forbid! truly (You husband) is my lord! he made my sojourn agreeable! truly to no good come those who do wrong!

Yusuf was a man with natural desires and here he is tempted by the wife of his boss. His Taqwa (Allah consciousness), gratitude to the Aziz and refined character provided him protection from falling into temptation. He thus restrained himself and does not succumb to temptation.

There is much to reflect on and learn from this episode in the life of Yusuf (AS).

Continues tomorrow …Insha Allah
