Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on A9 TV dated October 25th, 2011

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.
