English Translation of Al-Quran
.Surah Yusuf [Joseph]
Ayat 47. [(Yusuf (Joseph) PBUH] said: “For seven consecutive years, you shall sow as usual and that (the harvest) which you reap you shall leave in ears, (all) – except a little of it which you may eat.
Ayat 48. “Then will come after that, seven hard (years), which will devour what you have laid by in advance for them, (all) except a little of that which you have guarded (stored).
Ayat 49. “Then thereafter will come a year in which people will have abundant rain and in which they will press (wine and oil due to good cultivation).”
Tafseer of Surah Yusuf (PBUH) Ayat 47. (Joseph) said: “For seven years shall ye diligently sow as is your wont: and the harvests that ye reap, ye shall leave them in the ear,-(1704) except a little, of which ye shall eat. Joseph not only shows what will happen, but, unasked, suggests the measures to be taken for dealing with the calamity when it conies. There will be seven years of abundant harvest. With diligent cultivation they should get bumper crops. Of them they should take a little for their sustenance and store the rest in-the-ear, the better to preserve it from the pests that attack corn heaps when they have passed through the threshing floor. 48. “Then will come after that (period) seven dreadful (years), which will devour what ye shall have laid by in advance for them,- (all) except a little which ye shall have (specially) guarded. There will follow seven years of dreadful famine, which will devour all the stores which they will have laid by in the good years. They must be careful, even during the famine, not to consume all the grain; they must by special arrangement save a little for seed, lest they should be helpless even when the Nile brought down abundant waters from the rains at its sources. 49. “Then will come after that (period) a year in which the people will have abundant water, and in which they will press (wine and oil). “This is a symbol of a very abundant year, following the seven years of drought The Nile must have brought abundant fertilizing waters and silt from its upper reaches, and there was probably some rain also in Lower Egypt . The vine and the olive trees, which must have suffered in the drought, now revived, and yielded their juice and their oil; among the annuals, also, the oil seeds, such as linseed, sesame, and the castor oil plant, must have been grown, as there was irrigated land to spare from the abundant grain crops. And the people’s spirits revived, to enjoy the finer products of the earth, when their absolute necessities had been more than met in their grain crops.
