Yusuf’s Shirt عليه السلام

December 28, 2018 § Leave a comment


“Allaah said, “They stained his shirt with false blood. He said, ‘Nay, but your minds have made up a tale (that may pass) with you, (for me) patience is most fitting: Against that which ye assert, it is Allaah (alone) Whose help can be sought.’” [12:18] And He said, “Go with this my shirt, and cast it over the face of my father: he will come to see (clearly). Then come ye (here) to me together with all your family.” [12:93]

Yusuf عليه السلام sent his shirt from Egypt to his father because it was the reason for the start of his grief when they brought it to him [before], stained with blood, “And they brought his shirt stained with false blood,” so Yusuf عليه السلام wanted the end of his father’s grief to be from the same place it started, “Go with this my shirt, and cast it over the face of my father: he will come to see (clearly).”

So the grief in the story started with the shirt and ended with it.”

“… Ayyub ibn Suwaid narrated from Ibn Shawdhab who said, ‘When Yusuf عليه السلام was thrown into the well, he said:

حَسْبِيَ اللهُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَكِيْل
‘Allaah is sufficient for me! And He is the Best Disposer of Affairs.’

—and the water had been putrid but became pure, salty but then became sweet.’”

Mawsoo’ah Ibn Abid-Dunyaa, vol. 2. p. 220.
