Yasir Qadhi – Towards Understanding Surah Yusuf – 15

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi now moves on to discuss verses 68 to 76 of Surah Yusuf in which he divulges details on how Yusuf AS manages to keep Bin Yameen with him.

Hospitality was at its fore on the part of Yusuf AS in the form of a banquet for his brothers. On some pretext, Yusuf AS confided in his brother of being his older full brother and also shares the atrocities meted out by their other brothers against Yusuf AS. He takes Bin Yameen into confidence.

Why did Yusuf AS want to keep Bin Yameen with him? Why did Yusuf AS not call out for his father immediately when he was in a position of power and influence? The only sane explanation is that Prophet Yusuf AS would only do as was sanctioned to him by Allah SWT since Yusuf AS was a Prophet.

Yusuf AS put a cup of the king in the bag of Bin Yameen and then the person from within the palace accuses the caravan people of theft. What transpires next? Listen intently to find out.
