Some women of the city gossiped, “The Chief Minister’s wife is trying to seduce her slave-boy. Love for him has plagued her heart. Indeed, we see that she is clearly mistaken.”1 Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
When she heard about their gossip,1 she invited them and set a banquet for them. She gave each one a knife, then said ˹to Joseph˺, “Come out before them.” When they saw him, they were so stunned ˹by his beauty˺ that they cut their hands,2 and exclaimed, “Good God! This cannot be human; this must be a noble angel!” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

She said, “This is the one for whose love you criticized me! I did try to seduce him but he ˹firmly˺ refused. And if he does not do what I order him to, he will certainly be imprisoned and ˹fully˺ disgraced.”1  Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Joseph prayed, “My Lord! I would rather be in jail than do what they invite me to. And if You do not turn their cunning away from me, I might yield to them and fall into ignorance.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
So his Lord responded to him, turning their cunning away from him. Surely He is the All-Hearing, All-Knowing. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
