12:83 Jacob’s unbounded trust in Allah

1 min read

Jacob said: “Nay, but ye have yourselves contrived a story (good enough) for you. So patience is most fitting (for me). Maybe Allah will bring them (back) all to me (in the end). For He is indeed full of knowledge and wisdom.”

Jacob has an extraordinary trust in Allâh that his children would
be reunited with him, and he speaks of this here when he says, “It is
not far from the Grace of Allâh to bring them all to me.” The verse
also shows that through his prophetic vision, Jacob had been granted
the knowledge that his other sons had once again plotted to get rid of
the second brother when he said, “No! It is not so [as you tell me],
rather your [baser] selves have embellished to you another
[abominable] thing”. These words are another proof that it was not
Joseph who played a trick to keep Benjamin with him.
