Tafseer... Surah Yusuf - Verse 7-8

Surah Yusuf, Verse 7-8:

لَّقَدْ كَانَ فِى يُوسُفَ وَإِخْوَتِهِ ءايَـتٌ لِّلسَّآئِلِينَ - إِذْ قَالُواْ لَيُوسُفُ وَأَخُوهُ أَحَبُّ إِلَى أَبِينَا مِنَّا وَنَحْنُ عُصْبَةٌ إِنَّ أَبَانَا لَفِى ضَلَلٍ مُّبِينٍ

{7. Verily, in Yusuf and his brothers  there were signs for those who ask.) (8. When they said: "Truly, Yusuf and his brother are dearer to our father than we, while we are a clan. Indeed, our father is in plain error.''}

Allah says that there are lessons and wisdom to learn from the story of Yusuf and his brothers, for those who ask about their story and seek its knowledge. Surely, their story is unique and is worthy of being narrated..

{When they said: "Truly, Yusuf and his brother are dearer to our father than we...''}  They swore, according to their false thoughts, that Yusuf and his full brother Binyamin were dearer to their  father than them while they were a clan. They thought, how can he love these two more than the clan or group?

{Indeed, our father is in plain error.} because he preferred them and loved them more than us.
