And the king said, "Bring him to me." But when the messenger came to him, [Joseph] said, "Return to your master and ask him what is the case of the women who cut their hands. Indeed, my Lord is Knowing of their plan." (50) He said: What was the matter with you when ye solicited Yusuf against himself? They said: how perfect is God! we knew not of any evil against him. The wife of the Aziz said: now hath the truth come to light, even I solicited him against himself, and verily he is of the truth-tellers. (51) Joseph said: "I did this so that he [i.e. the chief) may know that I did not betray him in his absence, and that Allah does not allow the design of the treacherous to succeed. (52) ۞ And yet, I am not trying to absolve myself: for, verily, man's inner self does incite [him] to evil, and saved are only they upon whom my Sustainer bestows His grace. Behold, my Sustainer is much forgiving, a dispenser of grace!" (53) The king said: "Bring him to me. I will select him exclusively for my own service." So when Joseph spoke to him the king said: "You are now one of established position, fully-trusted by us." (54) Said Yusuf, “Appoint me over the treasures of the earth; indeed I am a protector, knowledgeable.” (55) Thus did We establish Joseph in the land so that he could settle wherever he pleased. We bestow favour, out of Our Mercy, on whomsoever We please, and We do not cause the reward of those who do good to go to waste. (56) Surely the reward of the Hereafter is better for those who believe and act in a God-fearing way. (57)
