[Yusuf 12:87] "O my sons, go and search for Yusuf and his brother, and do not lose hope in the mercy of Allah; indeed none lose hope in the mercy of Allah except the disbelieving people."
[Yusuf 12:88] Then when they reached in the company of Yusuf they said, "O governor! Calamity has struck us and our household, and we have brought goods of little value, so give us the full measure and be generous to us; undoubtedly Allah rewards the generous."
[Yusuf 12:89] He said, "Are you aware of what you did to Yusuf and his brother when you were unwise?"
[Yusuf 12:90] They said, "Are you, in truth you, really Yusuf?" He said, "I am Yusuf and this is my brother; indeed Allah has bestowed favour upon us; undoubtedly whoever practices piety and patience - so Allah does not waste the wages of the righteous."
[Yusuf 12:91] They said, "By Allah, undoubtedly Allah has given you superiority over us, and we were indeed guilty."
[Yusuf 12:92] He said, "There is no reproach on you, this day! May Allah forgive you - and He is the Utmost Merciful, of all those who show mercy."
[Yusuf 12:93] "Take along this shirt of mine and lay it on my father’s face, his vision will be restored; and bring your entire household to me." (Prophet Yusuf knew that this would miracle would occur.)
[Yusuf 12:94] When the caravan left Egypt, their father said *, "Indeed I sense the fragrance of Yusuf, if you do not call me senile." (* Prophet Yaqub said this in Palestine, to other members of his family. He could discern the fragrance of Prophet Yusuf’s shirt from far away.)
[Yusuf 12:95] They said, "By Allah, you are still deeply
engrossed in the same old love of yours."
