Tafseer... Surah Yusuf - Verse 5

Surah Yusuf, Verse 5:

قَالَ يَا بُنَيَّ لَا تَقْصُصْ رُؤْيَاكَ عَلَىٰ إِخْوَتِكَ فَيَكِيدُوا لَكَ كَيْدًا ۖ إِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ لِلْإِنسَانِ عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ

{He said, "O my son, do not relate your vision to your brothers or they will contrive against you a plan. Indeed Shaytaan, to man, is a clear enemy.}

The vision which Yusuf saw indicated that his brothers would be under his authority. They would be subjugated to such an extent that they would prostrate before him in respect, honor and appreciation. Ya`qub feared that if Yusuf narrated his vision to any of his brothers, they would envy him and conspire evil plots against him.
