Hizb 25
Juz 13
The king said: "Bring him to me. So when the messenger came to Joseph, he said: "Go back to your lord and ask him: 'How fare the women who had cut their hands?' My Lord is cognisant of their guile." (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) (At this Joseph remarked:) "From this (the Minister) should know that I did not betray him in his absence, and that God does not surely let the wiles of those who betray ever succeed. (52) ۞ I am not trying to absolve myself: for man's very soul incites him to evil unless my Lord bestows His mercy. Indeed, my Lord is forgiving and merciful." (53) So the king said: "Bring him unto me; I will take him specially to serve about my own person." Therefore when he had spoken to him, he said: "Be assured this day, thou art, before our own presence, with rank firmly established, and fidelity fully proved! (54) He said: Set me over the storehouses of the land. Lo! I am a skilled custodian. (55) And thus did We give to Yusuf power in the land-- he had mastery in it wherever he liked; We send down Our mercy on whom We please, and We do not waste the reward of those who do good. (56) And certainly the recompense of the life to come is better for those who believe and follow the right path. (57)
