English Translation of Al-Quran

[12].Surah Yusuf [Joseph]

Ayat 70. So when he had furnished them forth with their provisions, he put the (golden) bowl into his brother’s bag, then a crier cried: “O you (in) the caravan! Surely, you are thieves!”

Ayat 71. They, turning towards them, said: “What is it that you have missed?”

Ayat 72. They said: “We have missed the (golden) bowl of the king and for him who produces it is (the reward of) a camel load; I will be bound by it.”

Tafseer of Surah Yusuf (PBUH) Ayat 70, 71 & 72. At length when he had furnished them forth with provisions (suitable) for them, he put the drinking cup into his brother´s saddle-bag. Then shouted out a crier: “O ye (in) the caravan! behold! ye are thieves, without doubt!” Joseph’s plan was to play a practical joke on them, which would achieve two objects. Immediately it would put them into some consternation, but nothing comparable to what he had suffered at their hands. When the plan was unraveled, it would make them thoroughly ashamed of themselves, and dramatically bring home their guilt to them. Secondly, it would give him an excuse to detain Benjamin and bring their aged father into Egypt . He contrived that a valuable drinking cup should be concealed in Benjamin’s saddlebag. When it was found after an ostentatious search, he would detain the supposed culprit, and attain his object, as the story relates further on. 71. They said, turning towards them: “What is it that ye miss?” 72. They said: “We miss the great beaker of the king; for him who produces it, is (the reward of) a camel load; I will be bound by it.”
