Yasir Qadhi – Towards Understanding Surah Yusuf – 06

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi discusses about what transpired in verses 13 to 20 and how Yusuf AS was deserted in a far away land. 

The brothers of Yusuf AS throw him into the depths of the well. He was completely taken by surprise but the brothers ridiculed him,tortured him. They showed no pity for the six year old Yusuf AS.

The brothers came back late at night after committing the heinous crime with fake tears in their eyes. They also brought forth a shirt of Yusuf soaked in blood. As soon as Yaqub AS saw the shirt, he knew it was a lie as the shirt was not torn at all. Yaqub AS swore to bear patience in the wake of this tragedy and to turn to Allah who will protect him in the wake of these trials.

Allah SWT comforted the child Yusuf AS about the outcome of this trial:

  • He will be reunited with his brethren.
  • The brothers will not recognize him.
  • He will be the one to tell them about him.
  • He will be in a position of power and they will be weak.

The next part of the lecture is about the rescue of Yusuf AS and is something not to be missed at any cost.
