Yasir Qadhi – Towards Understanding Surah Yusuf – 13

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi discusses Verses 44 to 62 which are recited from Surah Yusuf and explanations are provided in the video ahead.

We are acquainted with the three types of souls of human beings: 

  • Righteous and pious soul
  • Soul that rebukes itself and amends itself
  • Corrupt soul that deviates from the worship of Allah.

The king now requests for Yusuf AS to be brought to him and be made into his camp for his honourability and his chastity. After speaking to Yusuf AS, his prestige for Yusuf AS rose even higher and gave him position and authority. He gave him Makeen and Yakeen as titles. Then, Yusuf AS asks the king to make him the incharge of all the produce of the agricultural lands .

A minute should be given to ponder on the fate of Yusuf AS from the confines of  prison to the most influential position of the city of Egypt. This is the Qadr of Allah and He gives to whom He is pleased with and who is grateful to Him.
