Tafseer.. Surah Yusuf - Verse 4

Surah Yusuf, Verse 4:

إِذْ قَالَ يُوسُفُ لاًّبِيهِ يأَبتِ إِنِّى رَأَيْتُ أَحَدَ عَشَرَ كَوْكَبًا وَالشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ رَأَيْتُهُمْ لِى سَاجِدِينَ

{(Remember) when Yusuf said to his father: "O my father! Verily, I saw (in a dream) eleven stars and the sun and the moon - I saw them prostrating to me.’'}

Allah says, `Mention to your people, O Muhammad, the story of Yusuf.' Prophet Yusuf mentioned his dream to his father, Prophet Ya`qub, son of Prophet Ishaq, son of Prophet Ibrahim, peace be upon them all. `Abdullah bin `Abbas stated that the dreams of Prophets are revelations from Allah.

Scholars of Tafsir explained that in Yusuf's dream the eleven stars represent his brothers, who were eleven, and the sun and the moon represent his father and mother.  Yusuf's vision became a reality forty years later, or as some say, eighty years.
