English Translation of Al-Quran

[12].Surah Yusuf [Joseph]

Ayat 46. (He said): “O Yusuf (Joseph), the man of truth! Explain to us (the dream) of seven fat cows whom seven lean ones were devouring, and of seven green ears of corn, and (seven) others dry, that I may return to the people, and tell them that what they may not know.”

Tafseer of Surah Yusuf (PBUH) Ayat 46. “O Joseph!” (he said) “O man of truth! Expound to us (the dream) of seven fat cows whom seven lean ones devour, and of seven green ears of corn and (seven) others withered: that I may return to the people, and that they may understand. “The speech must have been longer, to explain the circumstances. We are just given the points. From Joseph he conceals nothing. He knows that Joseph knows more than himself. He tells Joseph that if he got the meaning, he would go and tell the Council. It would be impertinent for the cupbearer to hold out to Joseph, the Prophet of Allah, the bribe of the hope of his release. Notice how  blandly he avoids referring to his own lapse in having forgotten Joseph so long, and how the magnanimous Joseph has not a word of reproach, but gets straight on with the interpretation

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Urwah bin Amir (May Allah be pleased with him) said: When talking of omens was mentioned in the presence of the Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) he said, “The best type of omen is the good omen.” He added, “A Muslim should not refrain from anything because of an omen.” He [SAWW](PBUH) told them, “When any of you sees anything which he dislikes, he should say: `Allahumma la ya’ti bil-hasanati illa Anta, wa la yadfa`us-sayyi’ati illa Anta, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa Bika (O Allah ! You Alone bring good things; You Alone avert evil things, and there is no might or power but in You).”’

[Abu Dawud Hadith # 3919)

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Yusuf Ayat 46. “I may return to the people, and tell them that what they may not know.” 1. Tiyarah means taking omen. This applies to good as well as bad omens. Muslims are required to take good omen only. For this reason, when a Muslim resolves to do something good then a bad omen should not impede his way because he believes that it is Allah Alone who brings about everything. He should also pray to Allah for the removal of mischief. 2. When such things from which people usually take a bad omen create suspicions in one’s mind, then it is Mustahabb (desirable) to recite the prayer mentioned in this Hadith. Thus, what we learn from this Hadith is that if a Muslim comes across something repulsive, he should pray to Allah for something auspicious. He should also pray to Allah for granting him the power and ability to abstain from evils.
