Surah Yusuf, 23:
“The woman whose house it was,” who does the woman live with? With the Prophet Joseph (pbuh). “The woman whose house it was,” she lives in the same house as the Prophet Joseph (pbuh). In their eyes, may Allah forbid, the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) sins. Allah says they live in the same house. The woman wanders round normally, uncovered. “She solicited him. She barred the doors and said, ‘Come over here’!” She wants to make love with him. “He said, ‘Allah is my refuge!” Why does he seek refuge in Allah? He says he will not engage in sexual relations with her. “Because He is my Lord and has been good to me with where I live. Those who do wrong will surely not succeed.”
“She wanted him…,” my forebear, the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) was highly attractive. All the prophets are very attractive. Their beauty has a huge impact on women. The Prophet Moses (pbuh) was the same. That is even in Pharaoh’s inscriptions. Idiots with donkey-minds. Look, they were not able to there. They say; “The scholar and sorcerer Yahuda is very expert in influencing women. It says the Prophet Moses (pbuh) is very expert. Look, they become tongue-tied. They have to admit it. Masha’Allah to the Prophet Moses (pbuh), my forebearer. “The woman wanted him,” because he [the Prophet Joseph(pbuh)] was so attractive. “and he would have wanted her, had he not seen the Clear Proof of his Lord.” Who forbade him to stay in the same room, or to look at her and who forbade adultery, or sexual relations. He saw her and wanted her, but he did not enter into sexual relations. They were in the same place, but he avoided vice and adultery. “That happened so We might avert from him all evil and lust. He was Our chosen servant.”

(Explanations from Surah Yusuf)
Together with the Prophet Joseph (pbuh), two more young men are put into prison. Allah gives information to the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) about the future. He says, "I hold fast to the creed of my forebears Abraham and Issac and Jacob." So [he says], "I abide by the creed of Israel. The creed of Isaac and Abraham." We also are Abrahamic. We abide by the pure natural belief of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh), the religion of Islam. The Prophet Joseph (pbuh) was a Muslim. He abided by Islam. "We don't associate anything with Allah. " " I would never associate anything with Allah," he says. Look these talks take place in prison. He does not just count the days in prison. They converse about Islam with the spirit of the Qur'an, about the Rightful Book of that period. I mean he does not say, "How will I be saved from the prison? What should I do?" He would of course say this, but he is also busy preaching religion. He preaches Islam. He preaches the spirit of the Qur'an, the spirit of Islam. At that time, we have explained this before, the legal system is very duplicitous. There was a very despicable legal system at that time. Even though they know that he is innocent, even though they know that he is honest and decent, despicable judges of that time, the despicable administration of that time bothers the Prophet Joseph (pbuh). They try to crush him. However that system sustains for his sake. It keeps on for the sake of the Prophet Joseph (pbuh). But they are unaware. They assume that it is their own blessing, their own wealth. However it is the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) who prevents that famine. Allah makes him instrumental in that. He is the one who prevents scourges from befalling them. He is the one who prevents their being ruined. But that foolish management does not get it. They assume that they do so with their own mentality, with their own talent. The flatterers of that time, the flatterers legal system, judicial system picks on the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) ignominiously. They accept the ignoble slanders of a backstabber, a treacherous woman, even though they know that the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) was in fact right. Look, at first the man appears to be on the side of the right one, he is the head of the state at the time. He speaks of Allah, the Book, religion and faith. He speaks of Islam. And he even advises the woman and he says; ".. you, my wife, should ask forgiveness for your evil act". Since you claim to be religious, since you claim to be a Muslim, why do you put the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) into prison on the word of a despicable woman? Why do you put him into prison on the word of a dishonorable person, right? And you say that you are a Muslim. Would you do that if it were you? You wouldn't. Would he do that to his relatives, his sons and his family? He wouldn't. But he sees the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) as an easy target. He doesn't know his true nature. He doesn't know his [the Prophet Joseph (pbuh)] power. Look, Allah says; "considering him to be of little worth. " in the 20th verse. If you ask the man he says; " Joseph ignore all this.." He advises the Prophet Joseph (pbuh). And he says " .. and you, my wife, should ask forgiveness for your evil act. " Look, he tells the woman to ask forgiveness for her sin. "There is no doubt that you are in the wrong."
You vicious man, for as much as you know what is a sin and what is a merit, for as much as you fear Allah; why do you put an innocent, immaculate person in prison with the words of an ignoble, double-crossing woman. Right? And for seven years, fear Allah! Seven years! And what did he do? He did not do anything. You are sure that he is innocent. But since he thinks that there will be no harm upon his own interests, he puts the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) into prison. And then they feel a formidable need for the Prophet Joseph (pbuh). This time they fall into his hands. And they say; "´O truthful Joseph, tell us of seven fat cows which seven thin ones ate and seven green ears of wheat and seven others which were dry .." They were in need of him. He had been instrumental in the correction of the economic situation, and he was also instrumental in the correction of the public order. The Prophet Joseph (pbuh) was instrumental in the correction of everything. The judges of that time were all sold out, double-crossing men. Once someone from the state whispers into their ears and say; "put him in jail" there was no justice system at the time. The ignominy prevails, and there is no law at the time; they take him and put him to jail. The demand of one is enough at that time. For instance, the words of a woman are enough for them. The man does not interfere either. He pretends not to understand. He acts in a manner to say, "I was not informed about this". How could you not know? Here they put him in prison in front of your eyes. Seven years of prison. And in a dungeon; that is not like the prisons of our time. It is a place in which there is a system of persecution. That blessed person remained there for seven years. In that dark, damp and dirty dungeon he remains for seven years. He constantly remembers Allah, he constantly performs his prayers. He is radiant, he is an immaculate person. He comes out of the prison with all his beauty, all his handsomeness, with his smiling, radiant face and with the graceful manners of a lion. He had also effected other people in the prison, he has had a very positive effect on them. They have almost assigned the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) as the manager of that place, of the prison. He had become almost like a manager of the prison. He took care of everything in the prison. For instance, there is no proof in the court. They are trying the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) in the court and he says; "look this woman had torn my shirt from my back." And the witnesses state the same. But the court is ignoble and acts according to the orders it has received from above. There is no just court. The system of the Pharaoh prevails, that double-crossing structure prevails. We see the same system in the story of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) as well. They arrest him, they put him in custody. They try the Prophet Abraham (pbuh). They employ the cruelest methods; the burning method. They say, "Let us burn him". But the time of the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) is very much different. That is because the man there, the head of the state at the time, claims that he is a Muslim. He says that he is religious and that he has fear of Allah. But he is loose when it comes to law; I mean he cares nothing for justice. They have put someone into prison, and he cares nothing for it. He is only after his own interests. I mean there is a weak structure. However after the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) the legal system completely settles in and becomes something reasonable. We know that the Prophet Joseph (pbuh) knows the legal system very well. I mean he knows the legal system of that time. For instance, he plants the cup in the saddlebag of his brother; in the legal system of that time the person in whose load the cup is found would be detained. That is something he knows. He knows the legal system by heart. Consequently he is a person who can use the legal system very well. He is a person who knows defense very well, he knows justice very well. After all these stages Allah makes him the head of the State.
Surah Yusuf, 44-48:
They said, ‘A jumbled mass of mixed-up dreams! We do not know the meaning of such things.Because the Prophet Joseph (as) was able to interpret things very well. He had a powerful ability to interpret events.
The one of them who had been saved then said, remembering after a period, ‘I will tell you what it signifies, so send me out.’
They at first attached no importance to it. But then someone remembered that the Prophet Joseph (as) was a highly intelligent and powerful person, and went and got him.
"O truthful Joseph…” What was our Prophet’s (saas) nickname? Muhammad al-Amin, the speaker of the truth, the certain one. What do they say of the Prophet Joseph (as)? They call him the truthful one. Prophets always have the same character.
Tell us of seven fat cows which seven thin ones ate and seven green ears of wheat and seven others which were dry so that I can return to them and let them know.’
For example, Hazrat Mahdi (as)will clarify the hadiths of the End Times for us in the most perfect way. People will be unable to understand. But we will understand that marvel when he interprets it. I am clarifying them as much as I can as one of his vanguard. But Hazrat Mahdi (as) will fully clarify the, insha’Allah. That is the reference here. We can think of Joseph as a symbol describing Hazrat Mahdi (as). Because Joseph (as) is a prophet, and Allah tells us in Surah Yusuf that there is much wisdom in him for us and tells us to make us of it. We need to know that where it refers to the Prophet Joseph (as) and the Prophet Solomon (as), it is a reference to Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the End Times. Because Allah does not tell us these things solely for us to learn about past times. Almighty Allah tells us for us to learn from.
“O truthful Yusuf, tell us of seven fat cows which seven thin ones ate…” Now there is a reference to the End Times. Cows do not normally eat animal flesh. But in the End Times, animal bodies are widely used in cattle feed. What is used in animal feed? Other animals’ bodies, blood and flesh and bone. They are used as a source of protein. So this is a reference to the End Times. Animals literally eat meat. In bio-feeds. It is widely used in bio-feeds.
“..tell us of seven fat cows which seven thin ones ate and seven green ears of wheat and seven others which were dry.” Sevens, 2007, 47 and verse no 47.
“He said, ‘Sow for seven years in the normal way and leave that which you harvest in the ear except for a small amount from which you eat.”
They realized this year that the best way of maintaining the harvest is by keeping back part of the wheat. The newspapers wrote that the best way of keeping wheat is to keep a bit of the ear back. What does the verse say?"leave that which you harvest in the ear except for a small amount from which you eat.”
To conserve it. It stays without going off or getting moldy or losing any of its potency. It remains of a high quality. It remains perfectly preserved. Verse 47 refers to seven years.
“Then after that seven hard years will arrive in which you can eat from what you set aside for them, except for a little which you store.”
When did it begin? In 2007. When will the economic crisis end, in 2014, insha’Allah. It refers to that. Look, seven years. The crisis will have lasted seven years by then. I have from the start the crisis would last seven years, but people said I was way out and that it would all be over in six months. No, it will last for seven years, I said. They insisted. At the end of the day, the IMF issued an official statement saying, “the economic crisis will last for seven years.” Where did you get that from? I said it. Did you have any other sources? No. There are no other scientific sources. Nothing apart from my statements. They know it will last for seven years, and they realized that what I said was true. And it is rumbling on still. The economic crisis is continuing in waves. The economic crisis has flared up again this year2012-10-31 14:53:43
