Thus thy Lord will prefer thee and will teach thee the interpretation of events, and will perfect His Grace upon thee and upon the family of Jacob as He perfected it upon thy forefathers, Abraham and Isaac.

Prophet Jacob (peace be upon him) was already aware of Joseph’s good habits and well-meaning. When Joseph caused to hear His dream to His father Jacob (peace be upon them), He understood that Joseph was a hopeful child and He would be a great person in future, because entire outward and inward signs were indicating that He was able to be a leader of all. Therefore, after advising Him, (that telling about the dream to brothers is not good, so it should be kept secret), Jacob said to Joseph (peace be upon them): I am sure that you are going to become a chosen servant of Allah Almighty, that is to say; you will be bestowed with prophet-hood, and you will excel in sagacity and intelligence from your all brothers. You will interpret correctly after hearing the dreams from the people, and you will understand easily the consequence after observing the circumstances. Care of you, those favors will also be perfected on the members of your family, which were perfected particularly on your forefathers Abraham and Isaac (peace be upon them). And after rescuing your grandfather Abraham (peace be upon him) from calamities, Allah Almighty settled him in Syria with peace and safety. He made your grandfather Isaac; forefather of many Prophets (peace be upon them) and bestowed respect and honor to his (peace be upon him) lineage in the world. As it, Allah Almighty will perfect His Grace upon you also. Prophet Jacob said: this all will be from your Lord, Who is Aware of the circumstances of the entire people and Who is Master of the entire wisdom.
