It is being informed in the verses of previous lesson that these are verses of such a Book; in which; useful matters for the human beings; have been explained. The person; who desires to correct his manners and habits, and wants that he should persist during tempests of violent passions, he should hear and recite these verses. He will know “what should he do?” Language of this Luminous Book is pure Arabic, so that to those people; whom; Messenger of Allah Almighty; Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) will cause to hear at first by reciting, no difficulty should come before them, because they will fulfill the responsibility of teaching to others in future.
It is commanded: O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)! We narrate unto You the best of stories and We have secured it as a part of that Qur’an, which We have been revealing unto You by means of Divine inspiration, so that, it may pull out the human beings always by catching their hands from the extreme black darkness of the passions and deepest pits of the way of life; by the fortune of its excellent description, elegance of its dialect and fineness of its way of education. It may support them in the sudden violent bursts of passions of their hearts. It should not let them be down-hearted due to causing troubles and violation by others, so that they may produce a live example of self determination, steadiness, patience and humility, forgiveness and graciousness before others.
It is commanded: You were not aware of this narrative before this time. Now, We have revealed it so that you may know; in such a way that, by it, lesson and advice is manifested naturally at every step, and it may influence the hearts.
The Jews were aware of the story of Prophet Joseph (peace be upon him) by means of Torah. They instructed to the idolaters of Makkah that they should ask about this story from their Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). The idolaters produced their demand before the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), because their aim was that “He will not be able to describe about this story, and the people will not have firm belief in Him” (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him).
Allah Almighty revealed Surah Yuusuf (Chapter Joseph) and described about the program of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) by giving obscure hints in the story that “how the people of His nation will afflict and expatriate Him from His (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) native land, and how Allah Almighty will confer Him honor and power in foreign country; overwhelm the nation before Him; He will forgive all and those entire people will become His (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) companions?”
