[012:015] So, when they took him away, they all agreed to throw him down to the bottom of the well, and We revealed to him: "Indeed, you shall (one day) inform them of this their affair, when they know (you) not."


[012:016]. And they came to their father in the early part of the night weeping.


[012:017] They said:"O our father! We went racing with one another, and left Ysuf (Joseph) by our belongings and a wolf devoured him; but you will never believe us even when we speak the truth."


[012:018] And they brought his shirt stained with false blood. He said: "Nay, but your own selves have made up a tale. So (for me) patience is most fitting. And it is Allh (Alone) Whose Help can be sought against that (lie) which you describe."


[012:019] And there came a caravan of travellers and they sent their water-drawer, and he let down his bucket (into the well). He said: "What a good news! Here is a boy." So they hid him as merchandise (a slave). And Allh was All-Knower of what they did.


[012:020] And they sold him for a low price, for a few dirhams (i.e. for a few silver coins). And they were of those who regarded him insignificant.


[012:021] And he (the man) from Egypt who bought him, said to his wife: "Make his stay comfortable, may be he will profit us or we shall adopt him as a son." Thus did We establish Ysuf (Joseph) in the land, that We might teach him the interpretation of events. And Allh has full power and control over His Affairs, but most of men know not.


[012:022] And when he [Ysuf (Joseph)] attained his full manhood, We gave him wisdom and knowledge (the Prophethood), thus We reward the Muhsinn (doers of good. See the footnote of V.9:120).
