˹Finally,˺ the surviving ex-prisoner remembered ˹Joseph˺ after a long time and said, “I will tell you its interpretation, so send me forth ˹to Joseph˺.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
˹He said,˺ “Joseph, O  man of truth! Interpret for us ˹the dream of˺ seven fat cows eaten up by seven skinny ones; and seven green ears of grain and ˹seven˺ others dry, so that I may return to the people and let them know.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
ﭿ
Joseph replied, “You will plant ˹grain˺ for seven consecutive years, leaving in the ear whatever you will harvest, except for the little you will eat. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Then after that will come seven years of great hardship which will consume whatever you have saved, except the little you will store ˹for seed˺. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Then after that will come a year in which people will receive abundant rain and they will press ˹oil and wine˺.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
The King ˹then˺ said, “Bring him to me.” When the messenger came to him, Joseph said, “Go back to your master and ask him about the case of the women who cut their hands. Surely my Lord has ˹full˺ knowledge of their cunning.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
ﯿ
The King asked ˹the women˺, “What did you get when you tried to seduce Joseph?” They replied, “Allah forbid! We know nothing indecent about him.” Then the Chief Minister’s wife admitted, “Now the truth has come to light. It was I who tried to seduce him, and he is surely truthful. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
From this, Joseph should know that I did not speak dishonestly about him in his absence, for Allah certainly does not guide the scheming of the dishonest. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
And I do not seek to free myself from blame, for indeed the soul is ever inclined to evil, except those shown mercy by my Lord. Surely my Lord is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
The King said, “Bring him to me. I will employ him exclusively in my service.” And when Joseph spoke to him, the King said, “Today you are highly esteemed and fully trusted by us.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
