|This happened to him while he was a boy||Therefore it was revealed in the Book of Allah Qur'an , complete in its minute and careful details|
|They will abide in that state in the Fire of Hell , and evil indeed will it be that load for them on the Day of Resurrection||He was sold into the slave market in Egypt, where he was bought for a nominal sum|
This is what the story of Joseph PBUH , confirms categorically, for it ends with comfort and marvels.27
|Joseph lived all his life confronting schemes made by the people closest to him||His brothers plotted to kill him, but they amended it to exiling him|
|Then he fell victim to the attempted seduction by a great man's wife who, when her wish was foiled, sent him to prison, where he remained for some time||It is related that among the reasons for its revelation is that the Jews asked the Prophet Muhammad PBUH to tell them about Joseph PBUH , who was one of their old prophets|
The story of Joseph PBUH moves in a stream from beginning to end; its substance and form are equally coherent.
