Daily Qur’an & Hadith 29 Jan 2021 (15 Jamadi us Sani 1442)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[12].Surah Yusuf [Joseph]

Ayat 61. They said: “We shall try to get permission (for him) from his father, and verily, we shall do it.”

Ayat 62. And [Yusuf (Joseph)[PBUH] told his servants to put their money (with which they had bought the corn) into their bags, so that they might know it when they go back to their people, in order that they might come back.

Tafseer of Surah Yusuf (PBUH) Ayat 61 & 62. They said: “We shall certainly seek to get our wish about him from his father: Indeed we shall do it.”  The brother said: “Certainly, we shall try to beg him for our father, and bring him away with us: we shall certainly comply with your desire.” In reality they probably loved Benjamin no more than they loved Joseph. But they must get food when the present supply was exhausted, and they must humor the great Egyptian Wazir. Note that they do not call Jacob “our father” but “his father”: how little they loved their aged father, whom they identified with Joseph and Benjamin! Their trial and their instruction in their duties is now being undertaken by Joseph. 62. And (Joseph) told his servants to put their stock in trade (with which they had bartered) into their saddle-bags, so they should know it only when they returned to their people, in order that they might come back. Bida’ah: stock in trade; capital with which business is carried on; money when it is used as capital for trade. It is better here to suppose that they were bartering goods for grain. Cf. 12:19 . It was more important for Joseph’s plan that they should come back. If they came back at all, they could not come without Benjamin after what he had told them. As an additional incentive to their coming back, he returns the price of the grain in such a way that they should find it in their saddlebags when they reach home.

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, “If anyone constantly seeks pardon (from Allah), Allah will appoint for him a way out of every distress and a relief from every anxiety, and will provide sustenance for him from where he expects not.”

[Abu Dawud Hadith # 1518].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Yusuf Ayat 62. “And [Yusuf (Joseph)[PBUH] told his servants to put their money (with which they had bought the corn) into their bags,” By seeking forgiveness, a relationship with Allah is established between man and his Creator. So seeking forgiveness is a very good act. Allah likes those people who, after committing a sin, do not stick to it, but right away seek forgiveness for their sins from Allah. They weep and express sorrow before Allah.
