and, once he had given them their provisions, he placed the drinking-cup in his brother’s pack. A man called out, ‘People of the caravan! You are thieves!’

— Abdul Haleem

So when he had furnished them with their supplies, he put the [gold measuring] bowl into the bag of his brother. Then an announcer called out, "O caravan, indeed you are thieves."

— Saheeh International

and they turned and said, ‘What have you lost?’

— Abdul Haleem

They said while approaching them, "What is it you are missing?"

— Saheeh International

They replied, ‘The king’s drinking-cup is missing,’ and, ‘Whoever returns it will get a camel-load [of grain],’ and, ‘I give you my word.’

— Abdul Haleem

They said, "We are missing the measure of the king. And for he who produces it is [the reward of] a camel's load, and I am responsible for it."

They said, ‘By God! You must know that we did not come to make mischief in your land: we are no thieves.’

— Abdul Haleem

They said, "By Allah, you have certainly known that we did not come to cause corruption in the land, and we have not been thieves."

— Saheeh International

They asked them, ‘And if we find that you are lying, what penalty shall we apply to you?’

— Abdul Haleem

They [the accusers] said, "Then what would be its recompense1 if you should be liars?"

— Saheeh International

and they answered, ‘The penalty will be [the enslavement of] the person in whose bag the cup is found: this is how we punish wrongdoers.’

— Abdul Haleem

[The brothers] said, "Its recompense is that he in whose bag it is found - he [himself] will be its recompense.1 Thus do we recompense the wrongdoers."

— Saheeh International

[Joseph] began by searching their bags, then his brother’s, and he pulled it out from his brother’s bag. In this way We devised a plan for Joseph- if God had not willed it so, he could not have detained his brother as a penalty under the king’s law- We raise the rank of whoever We will. Above everyone who has knowledge there is the One who is all knowing.

— Abdul Haleem

So he began [the search] with their bags before the bag of his brother; then he extracted it from the bag of his brother. Thus did We plan for Joseph. He could not have taken his brother within the religion [i.e., law] of the king except that Allah willed. We raise in degrees whom We will, but over every possessor of knowledge is one [more] knowing.1
