We speak the truth

Surah Yuusuf (Joseph) – 12

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

   ٱرْجِعُوٓا۟ إِلَىٰٓ أَبِيكُمْ فَقُولُوا۟ يَٰٓأَبَانَآ إِنَّ ٱبْنَكَ سَرَقَ وَمَاشَهِدْنَآ إِلَّا بِمَا عَلِمْنَا وَمَا كُنَّا لِلْغَيْبِ حَٰفِظِينَ (81

  وَسْـَٔلِ ٱلْقَرْيَةَ ٱلَّتِى كُنَّا فِيهَا وَٱلْعِيرَ ٱلَّتِىٓ أَقْبَلْنَا فِيهَا وَإِنَّا لَصَٰدِقُونَ (82

81.  Return unto your father and say: O our father! Lo! Thy son hath stolen. We testify only to that which we know; and we are not guardians of the Unseen.

 

82.  Ask the township where we were, and the caravan with which we traveled hither. And lo! We speak the truth.

81.  ‘Irji-‘uuu  ‘ilaaa  ‘abii-kum  faquuluu  yaaa-‘abaa-naaa  ‘in-nab-naka  saraq.  Wa  maa  sha-hid-naaa  ‘illaa  bimaa  ‘alimnaa  wa  maa  kunnaa  lil-gaybi  haa-fi-ziin.

 

82.  Was-‘alil-qar-yatal-latii  kunnaa  fii-haa  wal-‘iiral-latiii  ‘aqbalnaa  fiihaa.  Wa  ‘innaa  la-saa-diquun.

 

Commentary

 

Sha-hid-naaa – (we testified), it is a past tense from the word Sha-haadah. This word has been explained earlier. It means: “to be present and describe according to own knowledge”.

 

In short, the eldest brother stayed in Egypt and he advised remaining other brothers that they should return unto their father and say to him: Your son has stolen and arrested. Which undertaking we gave to you that “we shall bring him back”, we did not know at that time that Binyamin would steal. We were unaware of the Unseen. Even we explained about the penalty of the thief also before the ruler of Egypt. If you do not have confidence in us, you may inquire from that place where we stayed in Egypt. Those all people know. And with which caravan we traveled, they are here and they know too the entire incident. You can ask them. You will be informed that whatsoever we have been saying; is quite correct. This matter was happened before all openly. There is nothing hidden in it.

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

فَلَمَّا ٱسْتَيْـَٔسُوا۟ مِنْهُ خَلَصُوا۟ نَجِيًّا قَالَ كَبِيرُهُمْ أَلَمْ تَعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّ أَبَاكُمْ قَدْ أَخَذَ عَلَيْكُم مَّوْثِقًا مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ وَمِن قَبْلُ مَا فَرَّطتُمْ فِىيُوسُفَ فَلَنْ أَبْرَحَ ٱلْأَرْضَ حَتَّىٰ يَأْذَنَ لِىٓ أَبِىٓ أَوْ يَحْكُمَ ٱللَّهُ لِى وَهُوَ خَيْرُ ٱلْحَٰكِمِينَ (80

80.  So when they despaired of (moving) him, they conferred together apart. The eldest of them said: Know ye not how your father took an undertaking from you in Allah’s name and how ye failed in the case of Joseph aforetime? Therefore I shall not go forth from the land until my father giveth leave or Allah judgeth for me. And He is the Best of Judges. 80.  Falammas-tay-‘asuu  minhu  khalasuu  na-jiy-yaa.  Qaala  ka-biiru-hum  ‘alam  ta’-lamuuu  ‘anna  ‘abaa-kum  qad  ‘akhaza  ‘alay-kum-maw-siqam-mi-nAllaahi  wa  min-  qablu  maa  farrat-tum  fii  Yuusuf.  Falan  ‘abra-hal-‘arza  hattaa  ya’-zana  liii  ‘abiii  ‘aw  yahku-mAllaahu  lii.  Wa  Huwa  Khayrul-haaki-miin.

 

Commentary

 

Na-jiy-yan – (those who talk quietly), it is an adjective from na-ja-wa. The word najwaa has come out also from the same which means “to talk silently”. Najii and najwaa; both are used for the both “singular and plural” in Arabic language.

 

When Joseph (peace be upon him) dismissed their case, then all brothers began to think and discuss with one another that “what should we do now?” The eldest brother said: You know well that our father took an undertaking from all of us and witnessed to God Almighty that we will bring back Binyamin without fail. You also know that before this, we have been proved false in the case of Joseph (peace be upon him). Behold my brothers! I shall not leave this land until our father call me back at home or Allah Almighty judge for me.
