Indeed, We have sent it down as an Arabic Quran so that you may understand.

                

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

We relate to you ˹O Prophet˺ the best of stories through Our revelation of this Quran, though before this you were totally unaware ˹of them˺.

               

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

˹Remember˺ when Joseph said to his father, “O my dear father! Indeed I dreamt of eleven stars, and the sun, and the moon—I saw them prostrating to me!”

               

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

He replied, “O my dear son! Do not relate your vision to your brothers, or they will devise a plot against you. Surely Satan is a sworn enemy to humankind.

                         

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

And so will your Lord choose you ˹O Joseph˺, and teach you the interpretation of dreams, and perfect His favour upon you and the descendants of Jacob—˹just˺ as He once perfected it upon your forefathers, Abraham and Isaac. Surely your Lord is All-Knowing, All-Wise.”

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Indeed, in the story of Joseph and his brothers there are lessons for all who ask.

               

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

˹Remember˺ when they said ˹to one another˺, “Surely Joseph and his brother ˹Benjamin˺ are more beloved to our father than we, even though we are a group of so many. Indeed, our father is clearly mistaken.

              

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

Kill Joseph or cast him out to some ˹distant˺ land so that our father’s attention will be only ours, then after that you may ˹repent and˺ become righteous people!”

                

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

One of them said, “Do not kill Joseph. But if you must do something, throw him into the bottom of a well so perhaps he may be picked up by some travellers.”
