Surah Yusuf - Verse 16 to 18

Surah Yusuf, Verse 16-18:

وَجَاءُوا أَبَاهُمْ عِشَاءً يَبْكُونَ . قَالُوا يَا أَبَانَا إِنَّا ذَهَبْنَا نَسْتَبِقُ وَتَرَكْنَا يُوسُفَ عِندَ مَتَاعِنَا فَأَكَلَهُ الذِّئْبُ ۖ وَمَا أَنتَ بِمُؤْمِنٍ لَّنَا وَلَوْ كُنَّا صَادِقِينَ . وَجَاءُوا عَلَىٰ قَمِيصِهِ بِدَمٍ كَذِبٍ ۚ قَالَ بَلْ سَوَّلَتْ لَكُمْ أَنفُسُكُمْ أَمْرًا ۖ فَصَبْرٌ جَمِيلٌ ۖ وَاللَّهُ الْمُسْتَعَانُ عَلَىٰ مَا تَصِفُونَ

{16. And they came weeping to their father at nightfall. 17. They said, "O our father, indeed we went racing each other and left Yusuf with our possessions, and a wolf ate him. But you would not believe us, even if we were truthful.” 18. And they came with (stains of) false blood on his shirt. He (Ya'qub) said, "Rather, your souls have enticed you to something, so patience is most fitting. And Allah is the one sought for help against that which you describe.”}

Yusuf’s brothers slaughtered a sheep and stained Yusuf's shirt with its blood. But, they forgot to tear the shirt, and this is why Ya`qub did not believe them.
