Most of mankind do not know - Quran Chapter 12 – 68 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1524) - درس قرآن



Quran Chapter 12  68 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1524) - درس قرآن

Most of mankind do not know

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.)

وَلَمَّا دَخَلُوا۟ مِنْ حَيْثُ أَمَرَهُمْ أَبُوهُم مَّاكَانَ يُغْنِى عَنْهُم مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ مِن شَىْءٍ إِلَّا حَاجَةً فِى نَفْسِ يَعْقُوبَ قَضَىٰهَا وَإِنَّهُۥ لَذُو عِلْمٍ لِّمَا عَلَّمْنَٰهُ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ (68

68.  And when they entered in the manner which their father had enjoined, it would have naught availed them as against Allah; it was but a need of Jacob’s soul which he thus satisfied. And lo! He was a lord of knowledge because We had taught him; but most of mankind know not.       
68.  Wa  lammaa  dakhaluu  min  haysu  ‘amarahum  ‘abuuhum.  Maa  kaana  yugnii  ‘anhum-mi-nAllaahi  min-  shay-‘in  ‘illaa  haa-jatan  fii  nafsi  Ya’quuba  qazaahaa.  Wa  ‘innahuu  lazuu  ‘ilmil-limaa  ‘allam-Naahu  wa  laa-kinna  ‘aksa-ran-naasi  laa  ya’-lamuun. 
   
Commentary

The sons of Prophet Jacob (peace be upon him) did not enter in the city from one gate, but they obeyed as their Father (peace be upon him) commanded them and entered from different gates. The people of the city did not know that their caravan had entered in the city. Then it is commanded: That happens what God Almighty approves.

They acted upon that which was taught to them by Jacob (peace be upon him). That is to say; in the world of causes, the human being should not give up planning and care, but along with it, he should not have full trust in the causes only, but see also unto Allah Almighty for help. It is in the practice of those chosen servants of God Almighty in the world whom He gives knowledge. But maximum people go astray by being entangled in superabundance and shortage. Some are those who rely upon causes only and they forget entirely the Creator of all things including them. But some are those who sit in a corner by giving up the causes and think that Allah Almighty will make their all works operative without practice. But the correct way is that which is in between these both doctrines.

Every decision rests with God Almighty - Quran Chapter 12 – 67 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1523) - درس قرآن



Quran Chapter 12  67 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1523) - درس قرآن

Every decision rests with God Almighty

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.)

وَقَالَ يَٰبَنِىَّ لَا تَدْخُلُوا۟ مِنۢ بَابٍ وَٰحِدٍ وَٱدْخُلُوا۟ مِنْ أَبْوَٰبٍ مُّتَفَرِّقَةٍوَمَآ أُغْنِى عَنكُم مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ مِن شَىْءٍ إِنِ ٱلْحُكْمُ إِلَّا لِلَّهِ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَعَلَيْهِ فَلْيَتَوَكَّلِ ٱلْمُتَوَكِّلُونَ (67

67.  And he said: O my sons! Go not in by one gate, go in by different gates. I can naught avail you as against Allah. Lo! The decision rests with Allah only. In Him do I put my trust, and in Him let all the trusting put their trust.      
67.  Wa  qaala  yaa-ba-niyya  laa  tad-khuluu  mim-  baabinw-waa-hidinw-wad-khuluu  min  ‘ab-waabim-muta-farriqah.  Wa  maaa  ‘ugnii  ‘ankum-mi-nAllaahi  min-  shay’.  ‘Inil-hukmu  ‘illaa  Lillaah.  ‘AlayHi  ta-wak-kalt.  Wa  ‘alayHi  fal-yata-wak-kalil-Muta-wakkiluun.              
   
Commentary

‘ugnii  ‘ankum – (I save you), it is a phraseology, explanation of which has passed in Surah ‘Aali ‘Imraan. Meaning of the word “’an” used after ‘agnaa’, will be “to save or to cause someone to reap advantage”.

Prophet Jacob (peace be upon him) instructed to His sons for saving them from the evil eye of the people that they should not enter in the city all together from one gate, otherwise, lest the people see them with evil eye. They should go in by using different gates separately; one by one or two by two.

Then He (peace be upon him) commanded: It is an outward safety measure, otherwise It is Allah Almighty, before the commandment of Whom, there is none who may succeed. I have entrusted my entire matter to Him. And every individual should do so that wherever anyone becomes helpless, there, particularly, he should entrust his matter to Allah Almighty. Save Him, there is no one who may be trustworthy like Him. And in Him let the entire trusting people put their trust.

It has been more clarified from this narration that in the world of causes, every person must adopt the way of apparent management properly during common circumstances, but they should trust only in Allah Almighty, not in own arrangements.

Allah is the Warden over what we say - Quran Chapter 12 – 66 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1522) - درس قرآن



Quran Chapter 12  66 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1522) - درس قرآن

Allah is the Warden over what we say

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.)

  قَالَ لَنْ أُرْسِلَهُۥ مَعَكُمْ حَتَّىٰ تُؤْتُونِ مَوْثِقًا مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ لَتَأْتُنَّنِىبِهِۦٓ إِلَّآ أَن يُحَاطَ بِكُمْ فَلَمَّآ ءَاتَوْهُ مَوْثِقَهُمْ قَالَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ مَا نَقُولُ وَكِيلٌ (66

66.  He said: I will not send him with you till ye give me an undertaking in the name of Allah that ye will bring him back to me, unless ye are surrounded. So when they gave him their undertaking he said: Allah is the Warden over what we say.     
66.  Qaala  lan  ’ur-silahuu  ma-‘akum  hattaa  tu’-tuuni  maw-siqam-mi-nAllaahi  la-ta’-tunna-nii  bihiii  ‘illaaa  ‘any-yuhaata  bikum.  Falammaaa  ‘aataw-hu  maw-siqa-hum  QaalAllaahu  ‘alaa  maa  naquulu  Wakiil.            
   
Commentary

Maw-siqa – (an undertaking), this word has been derived from wasuuq. Wasuuq means “reliance, assurance, confidence, faith”. Maw-siqa means “a promise, an undertaking, a treaty of alliance”.

Yuhaata – (you are surrounded), it has come out from the word ‘ahaatah, origin of which is huut. Huut means “circumference, surrounding, boundary, to lay siege (to)”.

Wakiil – (Warden, A Guard), it is an adjective from the word wakala. Wakala means “to take over”. Wakiilun means “having legal power, authorized, at full liberty”.

Prophet Jacob (peace be upon him) said to his sons: Behold! I can send him with you with the only condition that you all should take an oath of Allah Almighty and promise strongly that you shall bring him back to me. If you all are surrounded badly by the enemies or entangled in any disaster and there is no way of escape, then it is another matter.

The sons gave their undertaking and promised strongly: It is our responsibility and duty to bring him back unto You. Prophet Jacob (peace be upon him) said: Now, I entrust this matter to Allah Almighty and pray in His Court: My Lord! Make my sons able that they may prove themselves true in their undertaking.

First request of the sons was rejected by Jacob (peace be upon him) with the words: The Best Guarding is Allah Almighty, how would you guard him? Then He (peace be upon him) finished their undertaking with the words: I have entrusted this matter to Allah, The Most High. Known from it that this is the path for a Muslim to accomplish any work, “one should assure preparation of all apparent provisions, but he should not trust in them, moreover, he should trust only in Allah Almighty, ignoring those apparent equipages”.

Price of purchased items was returned - Quran Chapter 12 – 65 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1521) - درس قرآن



Quran Chapter 12  65 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1521) - درس قرآن

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.)

  وَلَمَّا فَتَحُوا۟ مَتَٰعَهُمْ وَجَدُوا۟ بِضَٰعَتَهُمْ رُدَّتْ إِلَيْهِمْ قَالُوا۟ يَٰٓأَبَانَا مَا نَبْغِى هَٰذِهِۦبِضَٰعَتُنَا رُدَّتْ إِلَيْنَا وَنَمِيرُ أَهْلَنَا وَنَحْفَظُ أَخَانَا وَنَزْدَادُ كَيْلَ بَعِيرٍ ذَٰلِكَ كَيْلٌ يَسِيرٌ (65

65.  And when they opened their belongings they discovered that their merchandise had been returned to them. They said: O our father! What (more) can we ask? Here is our merchandise returned to us. And we shall get provision for our folk and guard our brother, and we shall have the extra measure of a camel (load). This (that we bring now) is a light measure.  
65.  Wa  lammaa  fatahuu  mataa-‘ahum  wajaduu  bizaa-‘atahum  ruddat  ‘ilayhim.  Qaaluu  yaaa-‘abaanaa  maa  nabgii.  Haa-zihii  bizaa-‘atunaa  ruddat  ‘ilaynaa.  Wa  namiiru  ‘ahlanaa  wa  nahfazu  ‘akhaa-naa  wa  naz-daadu  Kayla  ba-‘iir.  Zaalika  kayluny-yasiir.       
   
Commentary

Namiiru – (we shall get provision), origin of this word is mayr, which means “to bring the goods of food. Namiiru  ‘ahlanaa means “we shall get provision for our family”.

When they opened their luggage, they saw that the entire merchandise, as exchange of which, they went for getting grain, did exist in the belongings. They ran unto their father happily and said: Did you hear? The King has returned the amount which we paid there and he has given us the corn free of cost. Look! All that merchandise, which we carried for purchasing the grain, exists. Now, as soon as we reach there the grain would be ready for us. You should fulfill the terms imposed by the King now. Send Binyamin with us. Defending him is not too much difficult. We shall succeed in getting one extra measure of a camel load against his portion. It is a very easy plan of getting extra provision.

Which merchandise was returned by Joseph (peace be upon him), that was very helpful for His brothers to satisfy their Father, and He was desirous of the same.

64.  He said: Can I entrust him to you save as I entrusted his brother to you aforetime? So Allah is Better at Guarding, and He is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy.

Commentary

Prophet Jacob (peace be upon him) commands: I have been suffering requital of sending his Brother {Joseph (peace be upon him)} with you on the promise of your guarding so far, and have seen well the result of having trust in you. Do you expect again from me now that I shall send the brother of Joseph (peace be upon him) also entrusting to your conversation? As you could not save his Brother, how would you save him? I erred aforetime that I trusted in you and your strong promise of His safety. Now I have known well my error that only Allah Almighty is Better at guarding. You cannot be a good guard. We should never forget Him. He is the Best of Protectors, Who is Aware of His servants’ condition. He knows my condition also. Who can be more Merciful than Him? Mercy is in His Hand; Who is Omnipotent to remove calamity. Other all merciful are humble. By observing that someone is in distress, they can show their sympathy only and feel in their hearts pity on his condition. Moreover, no one can remove hearty grief of any other. It is in the Omnipotence of Allah Almighty only that He can remove grief and sorrow from the hearts of all, provide ease and comfort against restlessness, and change the pain in pleasure. So, only His protection can be useful because He beholds all hidden and open enemies and can repulse them immediately. You yourselves are helpless, how can you help others?

Send our brother with us that we may obtain corn - Quran Chapter 12 – 63 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1519) - درس قرآن



Quran Chapter 12  63 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1519) - درس قرآن

Send our brother with us that we may obtain corn

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.)

فَلَمَّا رَجَعُوٓا۟ إِلَىٰٓ أَبِيهِمْ قَالُوا۟ يَٰٓأَبَانَا مُنِعَ مِنَّا ٱلْكَيْلُ فَأَرْسِلْ مَعَنَآ أَخَانَا نَكْتَلْ وَإِنَّا لَهُۥ لَحَٰفِظُونَ (63

63.  So when they went back to their father they said: O our father! The measure is denied us, so send with us our brother that we may obtain the measure, surely we will guard him well. 
63.  Fa-lammaa  raja-‘uuu  ‘ilaaa  ‘abiihim  qaaluu  yaaa  ‘abaanaa  muni-‘a  minnal-kaylu  fa-‘arsil  ma-‘anaaa  ‘akhaa-naa  nak-tal  ‘innaa  lahuu  la-haafi-zuun.    
   
Commentary

Nak-tal – (we may obtain the measure), origin of this word is ‘ik-ti-yaal, which has been derived from the word kay-la. Kay-la means “to measure”. ‘Ik-ti-yaal means to obtain duly measured”.

Prophet Joseph (peace be upon him) arranged in all respect that they should bring His brother Binyamin.

·       First of all; He promised that grain’s full measure of the portion of their brother will be provided.

·       Secondly, He (peace be upon him) menaced them also in these worlds: Don’t think of coming unto Me if you do not bring your brother.

·       Thirdly, He (peace be upon him) returned their merchandise silently and secretly.

The brothers could say only at the time of hearing the promise and menace from Joseph (peace be upon him): We shall try our best to prepare our father that He should send Binyamin with us.

It is commanded that as soon as they reached their father, they caused to hear him the first news: Our father! No grain will be given to us in future. The ruler of Egypt has said clearly: Bring your brother along with yourselves, whom you have left behind at home, when you come again next time, otherwise you will not be provided the corn. So, send our brother with us in our next round. We will guard him fully. The brothers were much influenced by the promise and menace of Joseph (peace be upon him), so they did not delay in presenting the matter before Jacob (peace be upon him). It is obvious that they would have told their father at first that the ruler of Egypt {Joseph (peace be upon him)} is a very good entertainer; who is very munificent and receives the guests warmly. Jacob (peace be upon him) would have seen, to and fro, the camels; loaded with saddlebags full of grain also. In short, they would have prepared well the situation for presenting their application, so that their father should recommend their request without hesitation. Along with it they said too: Now; we have not been carrying our brother for supports, therefore, there is no reason of negligence. During journey, we would have no work but “Safety” only.

Commentary

Joseph (peace be upon him) was desirous that when those people (His brethren) come again for acquiring grain, they should make sure to bring their younger brother Binyamin with them. It was the reason that at first, He (peace be upon him) asked the detail of their address and then inquired: How many brothers have you? When they told about their younger brother, then at first; He (peace be upon him) laid stress on them that they should bring him also along with them when they come again, and He warned them too: If you did not bring your younger brother, nothing will be given to you in future.

In addition, He (peace be upon him) managed in such a way; by which; it was certain that they would bring Binyamin along with them. When His brothers were being ready to return, their luggage was being loaded on camels by the servants of Joseph (peace be upon him). Quietly, He (peace be upon him) arranged to place their merchandise secretly in their saddlebags, against which they had purchased the grain, so that after reaching home, when they open their baggage, they will recognize by finding their capital amount concealed in the purchased grain that: We have been provided the corn free of cost. It will persuade them good and their Father {Jacob - (peace be upon him)} will think also: there is no harm in sending Binyamin unto such liberal person: Certainly; He will pay attention and receive him with politeness. By all of this, nearly and surely they will come back along with their brother Binyamin.

Joseph (peace be upon him) had already thought: How should they all be peopled in Egypt with Him (peace be upon him)? He did not desire to confuse them due to shame; by disclosing Himself in their first meeting, but by the way, He wished to determine them a source of His meeting again with His Father (peace be upon them).
