[012:038] "And I have followed the religion of my fathers, Ibrhm (Abraham), Ishq (Isaac) and Ya'qb (Jacob) [?], and never could we attribute any partners whatsoever to Allh. This is from the Grace of Allh to us and to mankind, but most men thank not (i.e. they neither believe in Allh nor worship Him).


[012:039] "O two companions of the prison! Are many different lords (gods) better or Allh, the One, the Irresistible?


[012:040] "You do not worship besides Him but only names which you have named (forged) you and your fathers for which Allh has sent down no authority. The command (or the judgement) is for none but Allh. He has commanded that you worship none but Him (i.e. His Monotheism); that is the (true) straight religion, but most men know not.


[012:041] "O two companions of the prison! As for one of you, he (as a servant) will pour out wine for his lord (king or master) to drink; and as for the other, he will be crucified and birds will eat from his head. Thus is the case judged concerning which you both did inquire."


[012:042] And he said to the one whom he knew to be saved: "Mention me to your lord (i.e. your king, so as to get me out of the prison)." But Shaitn (Satan) made him forget to mention it to his lord [or Satan made {Ysuf (Joseph)} to forget the remembrance of his Lord (Allh) as to ask for His Help, instead of others]. So [Ysuf (Joseph)] stayed in prison a few (more) years.


[012:043] And the king (of Egypt) said: "Verily, I saw (in a dream) seven fat cows, whom seven lean ones were devouring, and seven green ears of corn, and (seven) others dry. O notables! Explain to me my dream, if it be that you can interpret dreams."
