31. When she heard of their malicious talk, she sent for them and prepared a banquet for
them: she gave each of them a knife: and she said (to Joseph), "Come out before them."
When they saw him, they did extol him, and (in their amazement) cut their hands: they
said, "(Allah) preserve us! no mortal is this! this is none other than a noble angel!"
32. Qalat fathalikunna allathee lumtunnanee feehi walaqad rawadtuhu AAan nafsihi
stAAsama wala-in lam yafAAal ma amuruhu layusjananna walayakoonan mina
32. She said: "There before you is the man about whom ye did blame me! I did seek to
seduce him from his (true) self but he did firmly save himself guiltless!....and now, if he
doth not my bidding, he shall certainly be cast into prison, and (what is more) be of the
company of the vilest!"
33. Qala rabbi a
ssijnu ahabbu ilayya mimma yadAAoonanee ilayhi wa-illa tasrif
AAannee kaydahunna asbu ilayhinna waakun mina aljahileen
33. He said: "O my Lord! the prison is more to my liking than that to which they invite
me: Unless Thou turn away their snare from me, I should (in my youthful folly) feel
inclined towards them and join the ranks of the ignorant."www.islamicbulletin.com
