20.  And they sold him for a low price, a number of silver coins, and they attached no value to him.       20.  Wa  sha-rawhu  bi-samanim- bakh-sin-  daraa-hima  ma’-duudah.  Wa  kaanuu  fiihi  minaz-zaahi-diin.   
Commentary
Bakh-sin – (low, deficient, little, less, few, reduced), this word means “very little, very less”. Like the same, a word “laa  yub-kha-suun” has pass in Surah Huud, which means “they will not be wronged”.
Daraa-hima – it is plural of darham, which was a silver coin of those days, and which may be estimated as equal to “one $” at this time. Daraa-hima  ma’-duudah – (few dollars).

A complete story in three small sentences
Surah Yuusuf(Joseph) - 12
‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)
Wife of the King of Egypt fell in love of Joseph (peace be upon him). Holy Qur’an has finished her love story in only three small sentences, as it will be discussed in preceding lessons. But our story writers have narrated such attractive story of love and beauty that a person flows in the wave of passions. Holy Qur’an does not do so. It finishes most ardent passions within only two or three sentences.
It manifests from choosing this way of describing that Holy Qur’an does not desire to excite the feelings of lewdness by using any florid style in passions. However, it exists in the Sayings of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and in the words of venerable people clea…

When Chapter Joseph (Surah Yuusuf) was revealed upon the Messenger of God Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) in Makkah, at that time, He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) had been surrounded by the enemies from all around and there was no hope but causing trouble from them. They left no stone unturned in annoying, even they established a conference collectively that “which form would be suitable for getting rid of Him?” (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). At last, they decided that He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) should be put to death.
It was the same decision which, in the earlier times, was made by the brothers altogeth…
