Prophet Yaqub (a) & Prophet Yusuf(a)
Israil was very upset but he did not believe the story. He knew that one day Allah would bring Yusuf back to him.
Poor Yusuf spent the night in the well. The next morning, when someone put the bucket down the well to get water, he sat in the bucket.
The man had to get help to pull the bucket up. He was very surprised to see a boy in it. The man was a merchant.
The merchant decided to take Yusuf with him to Egypt and to sell him as a slave. When they arrived in Egypt, one of the noble families bought Yusuf.
The man who bought him told his wife that they should take care of him, as he was a good-looking child and they had no children of their own. Yusuf became one of the family.
Prophet Yusuf (a)
The Pharaoh of Egypt called Firawn had many people working for him.
One of his assistants had a very wicked wife who said many things about Yusuf that were quite untrue. She thought she loved him but he told her that she should honour her husband.
She became very angry and persuaded her husband to have Yusuf put in prison.
While he was in prison, Yusuf used to tell everyone what their dreams meant and his explanation of the dreams always came true.
Allah had given Yusuf this great gift.
