As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters.
Today’s selection is from Surah 12, Yüsuf or Joseph, verses 58-79. These verses continue the story of Prophet Joseph after he had been appointed as a member of the King’s cabinet. Joseph’s brother’s had to come to Egypt to get food and grain. Joseph, who was unrecognized by his brothers, commanded them to bring Benjamin, his younger brother. Joseph’s brothers convinced their father to let them bring Benjamin, to whom Joseph revealed his identity and then hatched a plan to retain Benjamin in his services.
