[In The Name of ALLAH, The MOST GRACIOUS - THE MOST MERCIFUL]
قَالُوا يَا أَبَانَا مَا لَكَ لَا تَأْمَنَّا عَلَىٰ يُوسُفَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَنَاصِحُونَ
When Yusuf's brothers agreed to take him and throw him down the well, taking the advice of their elder brother Rubil, they went to their father Ya`qub, peace be upon him. They said to him, "Why is it that you,
(do not trust us with Yusuf though we are indeed his well-wishers).'' They started executing their plan by this introductory statement, even though they really intended its opposite, out of envy towards Yusuf for being loved by his father.
Then They said:
(and verily, we will take care of him.), we will protect him and ensure his safety for you.
- The brothers of Yusuf deceived their father by promising him that they will take care of him, and at the same time planning to harm/kill him.
- Being a Prophet of Allah, the father had an intuition that they might harm Yusuf, yet he entrusted him to them, putting his trust in ALLAH.
- ALLAH (SWT) sent a revelation to Yusuf (A.S.) about the reunion with his family (which we later learn in this chapter).
