English Translation of Al-Quran

[12].Surah Yusuf [Joseph]

Ayat 18. And they brought his shirt stained with false blood. He said: “Nay, but your ownselves have made up a tale. So (for me) patience is most fitting. And it is Allah (Alone) Whose help can be sought against that which you assert.”

Tafseer of Surah Yusuf (PBUH) Ayat 18. They stained his shirt with false blood. He said: “Nay, but your minds have made up a tale (that may pass) with you, (for me) patience is most fitting: Against that which ye assert, it is Allah (alone) Whose help can be sought”  Joseph wore a garment of many colors, which was a special garment peculiar to him. If the brethren could produce it blood-stained before their father, they thought he would be convinced that Joseph had been killed by a wild beast. But the stain on the garment was a stain of “false blood” —not the blood of Joseph, but the blood of a goat which the brethren had killed expressly for this purpose. Their device, however, was not quite convincing because, as some Commentators have pointed out, the garment was intact which is inconceivable if a wolf had indeed devoured Joseph. Jacob saw that there had been some foul play, and he did not hesitate to say so. In effect he said: “Ah me! the tale may tell may be good enough for you, who invented it! But what about me, your aged father? What is there left in life for me now, with my beloved son gone? And yet what can I do but hold my heart in patience and implore Allah’s assistance? I have faith, and I know that all that He does is for the best!”

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, “There are no days during which the righteous action is so pleasing to Allah than these days (i.e., the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah).” He was asked: “O Messenger of Allah [SAWW], not even Jihad in the Cause of Allah?” He [SAWW](PBUH) replied, “Not even Jihad in the Cause of Allah, except in case one goes forth with his life and his property and does not return with either of it.”

[Al-Bukhari Volume 02, Book 15, Hadith # 086].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Yusuf Ayat 18“And it is Allah (Alone) Whose help can be sought against that which you assert.” This Hadith brings out the following two points: 1. Righteous deeds during the first ten days of the month of Dhul-Hijjah are far better and more rewarding than righteous deeds done on other days of the year, because they are Hajj days in the sacred season of pilgrimage. Because of their excellence and importance, Allah (SWT) swore by them, thus: “By the Dawn; by the ten Nights…” (89:1,2)

  1. Jihad has great eminence in Islam.
