“Stay away from malicious gossip and fake words" (Qur'an 68;11).
If a person attempted to murder you but failed, and you had the opportunity to do whatever you please to that person, what would you do?
The brothers of Yusuf (Joseph) peace be upon him tried to kill him at a young age by throwing him into a well. By leaving Yusuf (as) in the well, they assumed that he would eventually die. However, he was discovered by a few travellers and survived.
Yusuf’s (as) life took a downward spiral after the horrible crime his brothers had committed. For a great number of years he is isolated from his family and faces numerous difficulties. Finally, he rises to power and becomes a minister.
One day, Yusuf (as) re-encounters his brothers and gains the opportunity to take vengeance. How does he treat them?
