Tafseer of Surah Yusuf (PBUH) Ayat 91, 92 & 93. They said: “By Allah. indeed has Allah preferred thee above us, and we certainly have been guilty of sin!” The scales fall from the eyes of the brothers. We may suppose that they had joined Judah at this interview, and perhaps what Judah had seen when he was alone helped in the process of their enlightenment. They are convicted of sin out of their own mouths, and now there is an no unrevealed thought, in their minds. They freely confess their wrongdoing, and the justice of Joseph’s preferment. 92. He said: “This day let no reproach be (cast) on you: Allah will forgive you, and He is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy! Joseph is most generous. He is glad that they have at last seen the significance of what happened. But he will not allow them at this great moment of reconciliation to dwell on their conduct with reproaches against themselves. There is more urgent work to do. An aged and beloved father is eating out his heart in far Canaan in love and longing for his Joseph, and he must be told all immediately, and “comforted in body, mind, and estate,” and so he tells the brothers to hurry back immediately with his shirt as a sign of recognition, as a proof of these wonderful happenings. 93. “Go with this my shirt,(1769) and cast it over the face of my father: he will come to see (clearly). Then come ye (here) to me together with all your family.” It will be remembered that they had covered their crime by taking his shirt, putting on the stains of blood, and pretending that he had been killed by a wolf: see above, 12:17 -18. Now that they have confessed their crime and been forgiven, and they have joyful news to tell Jacob about Joseph. Joseph gives them another shirt of his to prove the truth of their story. It is a rich shirt, befitting a ruler of Egypt , to prove his good fortune, and yet perhaps its design and many colours (12:18) were reminiscent of the lost Joseph. The first shirt plunged Jacob into grief This one will now restore him. See the verses following.
English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated: Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, “He who repents before the sun rises from the west, Allah will forgive him”. [Muslim Book 05, Chapter 35, Hadith # 6525].
Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Yusuf Ayat 92. “may Allah forgive you, and He is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy!” Taubah means returning to Allah from sins. When a person commits a sin, he goes away from Allah. When he repents, he returns to Allah and desires for being pardoned by Him, and getting near Him. This returning towards Him is Taubah. When it is said that `Allah turns towards him’, it means that Allah accepts his repentance.
