Juz 13
Now when they saw no hope of his (yielding), they held a conference in private. The leader among them said: "Know ye not that your father did take an oath from you in Allah's name, and how, before this, ye did fail in your duty with Joseph? Therefore will I not leave this land until my father permits me, or Allah commands me; and He is the best to command. (80) Return you all to your father, and say, "Father, thy son stole; we do not testify except that we know; we were no guardians of the Unseen. (81) And inquire in the town in which we were and the caravan with which we proceeded, and most surely we are truthful. (82) (When he heard this), Jacob said, "Your souls have tempted you to make up the whole story. Let us be patient for perhaps God will bring them all back to me. God is certainly All-knowing and All-wise". (83) And he turned away from them and said: "Alas, my grief for Yusuf (Joseph)!" And he lost his sight because of the sorrow that he was suppressing. (84) They said, “By Allah, you will keep remembering Yusuf till your health fails you or you lose your life.” (85) He said: "I only complain of my distraction and anguish to Allah, and I know from Allah that which ye know not... (86) "O my sons! go ye and enquire about Joseph and his brother, and never give up hope of Allah's Soothing Mercy: truly no one despairs of Allah's Soothing Mercy, except those who have no faith." (87) Then, when they came (back) into (Joseph's) presence they said: "O exalted one! distress has seized us and our family: we have (now) brought but scanty capital: so pay us full measure, (we pray thee), and treat it as charity to us: for Allah doth reward the charitable." (88) He said: remember ye that which ye did unto Yusuf and his brother while ye were ignorant? (89) They said, "Are you indeed Joseph?" He said "I am Joseph, and this is my brother. Allah has certainly favored us. Indeed, he who fears Allah and is patient, then indeed, Allah does not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good." (90) 'By God,' they said, 'God has indeed preferred thee above us, and certainly we have been sinful.' (91) He replied: "No blame lies with you today. May Allah forgive you. He is the Most Merciful of all those that are merciful. (92) Go, take this shirt of mine and cast it over my father's face, he will recover his sight. Then return to me with all your family' (93)
