Ayah

قَالَ قَآئِلٌ مِّنۡهُمۡ لَا تَقۡتُلُواْ يُوسُفَ وَأَلۡقُوهُ فِى غَيَٰبَتِ ٱلۡجُبِّ يَلۡتَقِطۡهُ بَعۡضُ ٱلسَّيَّارَةِ إِن كُنتُمۡ فَٰعِلِينَ

Translation

Said one of them: "Slay not Joseph, but if ye must do something, throw him down to the bottom of the well: he will be picked up by some caravan of travellers."<br/>

Tafsir

One of them, namely, Judah, said, 'Do not kill Joseph, but cast him, throw him, into the bottom of a well (ghayaabat al-jubb is the darkest recess of a well; a variant reading has the plural [ghayaabaat]), so that some caravan might pick him up, if you are to do anything', of what you desire, in the way of separating [Joseph from us]: so content yourselves with this [solution].
