Daily Qur’an & Hadith 21 Jan 2021 (07 Jamadi us Sani 1442)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[12].Surah Yusuf [Joseph]

Ayat 44. They said: “Mixed up false dreams and we are not skilled in the interpretation of dreams.”

Ayat 45. Then the man who was released (one of the two who were in prison), now at length remembered and said: “I will tell you it’s interpretation, so send me forth.” Tafseer of Surah Yusuf (PBUH) Ayat 44. They said: “A confused medley of dreams: and we are not skilled in the interpretation of dreams.” No one in the Council apparently wanted to take the responsibility either of interpreting the dream, or of carrying out any measures consequent on the interpretation. 45. But the man who had been released, one of the two (who had been in prison) and who now bethought him after (so long) a space of time, said: “I will tell you the truth of its interpretation: send ye me (therefore).” At length the cupbearer’s conscience was awakened. He thought of Joseph. He (Joseph) was a truthful man, and the cupbearer knew by personal experience how skillful he was in the interpretation of dreams. Perhaps he could get him released at this juncture by getting him to interpret the king’s dream. If he had been frank, straight, and direct, he would have mentioned Joseph at once, and presented him to Pharaoh. But he had worldly subtlety. He wanted some credit for himself, at the same time that he fulfilled an old obligation. His petty conscience would be satisfied if he got Joseph’s release, but meanwhile he wanted to see how much attention he could draw to himself in the court. So he just asked permission to withdraw in order to find the interpretation. He went straight to the prison, and addressed himself to Joseph, as in the following verse.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet [SAWW](PBUH) as saying: “The worst of lies is to pretend to have seen something which he has not seen.”

[Al-Bukhari INTERPRETATION OF DREAMS, Book 87, Hadith # 167].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Yusuf Ayat 44. “They said: “Mixed up false dreams.” This Hadith strongly condemns falsehood, whether it relates to a dream or to the real world. It is a great sin in both cases.
