Joseph & his brethren

joseph_500

“Verily in Joseph & his brethren are signs (or symbols) for seekers (after Truth).

They said: “Truly Joseph & his brother are loved more by our father than we: But we are a goodly body! really our father is obviously wandering (in his mind)!

“Slay ye Joseph or cast him out to some (unknown) land, that so the favour of your father may be given to you alone: (there will be time enough) for you to be righteous after that!”

Said one of them: “Slay not Joseph, but if ye must do something, throw him down to the bottom of the well: he will be picked up by some caravan of travellers.”

They said: “O our father! why dost thou not trust us with Joseph,- seeing we are indeed his sincere well-wishers?

“Send him with us tomorrow to enjoy himself & play, & we shall take every care of him.”

(Jacob) said: “Really it saddens me that ye should take him away: I fear lest the wolf should devour him while ye attend not to him.”

They said: “If the wolf were to devour him while we are (so large) a party, then should we indeed (first) have perished ourselves!”

So they did take him away, & they all agreed to throw him down to the bottom of the well: & We put into his heart (this Message): ‘Of a surety thou shalt (one day) tell them the truth of this their affair while they know (thee) not’

Then they came to their father in the early part of the night, weeping.

They said: “O our father! We went racing with one another, & left Joseph with our things; & the wolf devoured him…. But thou wilt never believe us even though we tell the truth.”

They stained his shirt with false blood. He said: “Nay, but your minds have made up a tale (that may pass) with you, (for me) patience is most fitting: Against that which ye assert, it is Allah (alone) Whose help can be sought”..

Then there came a caravan of travellers: they sent their water-carrier (for water), & he let down his bucket (into the well)…He said: “Ah there! Good news! Here is a (fine) young man!” So they concealed him as a treasure! But Allah knoweth well all that they do!” [12:7-19]
