.Surah Yusuf [Joseph]
Ayat 11. They said: “O our father! Why do you not trust us with Yusuf (Joseph), – when we are indeed his well-wishers?”
Ayat 12. “Send him with us tomorrow to enjoy himself and play, and verily, we will take care of him.”
Tafseer of Surah Yusuf (PBUH) Ayat 11 & 12. They said: “O our father! why dost thou not trust us with Joseph,- seeing we are indeed his sincere well-wishers? ( The plot having been formed, the brethren proceed to put it into execution. Jacob, knowing the situation, did not ordinarily trust his beloved Joseph with the brethren. The latter therefore remonstrate and feign brotherly affection. 12. “Send him with us tomorrow to enjoy himself and play, and we shall take every care of him. “They did not expect their protestations to be believed. But they added an argument that might appeal both to Jacob and Joseph. ‘They were going to give their young brother a good time. Why not let him come out with them and play and enjoy himself to his heart’s content?’
English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Imran bin Husain (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, “The best of you, are my contemporaries, then those who follow them, then those who will come after them. (Imran said, I do not know if he said this twice or thrice). Then, they will be followed by those who will testify but will not be called upon to testify; they will betray the trust, and will not be trusted. They will make vows but will not fulfill them, and obesity will prevail among them.”
[Al-Bukhari Volume 03, Book 48, Hadith # 819].
Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Yusuf Ayat 11. “They said: “O our father! Why do you not trust us with Yusuf (Joseph), – when we are indeed his well-wishers?”,” In this Hadith, three eras have been called as the best of ages in a graded order: first, the Prophetic era, second, the Successors’ era, and third, the Followers of the Successors’ era. Goodness and religion collectively prevailed during this time. Then gradually there was an overall deterioration and every new era that the pass of time brought it, proved to be worse than the preceding one. Today’s Muslims have fallen due to their weakness in character. Now, the majority of Muslims lack morals and belief as described in the Qur’an and the Hadith. The complaint is to be lodged only with Allah!
