About this episode

Prophet Yusuf’s story (alaihi salaam) started in this episode. The lessons in this Surah are so
enormous and Mufti has given us the summary for us to ponder on and make use of in our daily lives.
The first lesson which is the opening of the Surah is to learn to be secretive about one’s affairs contrary to announcing all you blessings which is what is common nowadays on Facebook, twitter, Instagram etc. Because Shaitan is bad and makes people do unacceptable things, he clouds them with jealousy, envy even when they didn’t want to be mean, but if you don’t display your affair, he can’t tempt them, learn from Yusuf’s story and hide your blessings for that is better for you, because not everybody is happy with your happiness.
Everybody is capable of lying even children, so verify any tale and don’t spread rumour that will destroy the honour of a fellow being.
Yusuf (alaihi salaam) was a happy child and accepted Allah’s decree because he was convinced of Allah’s help. He preferred to be in jail rather than disobey Allah by committing adultery. He was punished for a sin that he didn’t commit and did not for once blame Allah or black magic. He kept worshipping Him and even calling people to Allah in jail.
