Surah Yusuf - Verse 21

Surah Yusuf, Verse 21:

وَقَالَ الَّذِي اشْتَرَاهُ مِن مِّصْرَ لِامْرَأَتِهِ أَكْرِمِي مَثْوَاهُ عَسَىٰ أَن يَنفَعَنَا أَوْ نَتَّخِذَهُ وَلَدًا ۚ وَكَذَٰلِكَ مَكَّنَّا لِيُوسُفَ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلِنُعَلِّمَهُ مِن تَأْوِيلِ الْأَحَادِيثِ ۚ وَاللَّهُ غَالِبٌ عَلَىٰ أَمْرِهِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

{And the one from Egypt who bought him said to his wife, "Make his residence comfortable. Perhaps he will benefit us, or we will adopt him as a son." And thus, We established Yusuf in the land that We might teach him the interpretation of events. And Allah has full power over His decree, but most people do not know.}

The man who bought Yusuf was the minister of Egypt at the time, and his title was `Aziz’. Allah mentions the favors that He granted Yusuf, peace be upon him, by which He made the man who bought him, take care of him and provide him with a comfortable life. The man also ordered his wife to be kind to Yusuf and had good hopes for his future, because of his firm righteous behavior.

{that We might teach him the interpretation of events.}  referring to the interpretation of dreams.

{And Allah has full power over His decree) if He wills something, then there is no averting His decision, nor can it ever be stopped or contradicted. Rather, Allah has full power over everything and everyone else.

{but most people do not know.) meaning, have no knowledge of Allah's wisdom with regards to His creation, compassion and doing what He wills.
