Ayah

وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِى ٱشۡتَرَىٰهُ مِن مِّصۡرَ لِٱمۡرَأَتِهِۦٓ أَكۡرِمِى مَثۡوَىٰهُ عَسَىٰٓ أَن يَنفَعَنَآ أَوۡ نَتَّخِذَهُۥ وَلَدًا ۚ وَكَذَٰلِكَ مَكَّنَّا لِيُوسُفَ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَلِنُعَلِّمَهُۥ مِن تَأۡوِيلِ ٱلۡأَحَادِيثِ ۚ وَٱللَّهُ غَالِبٌ عَلَىٰٓ أَمۡرِهِۦ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكۡثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ

Translation

The man in Egypt who bought him, said to his wife: "Make his stay (among us) honourable: may be he will bring us much good, or we shall adopt him as a son." Thus did We establish Joseph in the land, that We might teach him the interpretation of stories (and events). And Allah hath full power and control over His affairs; but most among mankind know it not.<br/>

Tafsir

And he of Egypt who purchased him, Potifar, the Court Officer (Qitfeer al-'azeez), said to his wife, Zulaikha (Zulaykhaa), 'Give him an honourable place, [an honourable] residence with us. Maybe he will be useful to us, or we may adopt him as a son' - for he was chaste. Thus, just as We delivered him from being killed and from the well, and softened the Court Officer's heart for him, We established Joseph in the land, the land of Egypt, until he attained what [status] he attained, that We might teach him the interpretation of events, the interpretation of visions (wa-li-nu'allimahu min ta'weeli'l-ahaadeeth is a supplement to an implied [missing part] connected to makkannaa, 'We established', in other words, [an implied] li-numallikahu, 'so that We might give him kingship'; or else the waaw [of wa-li-nu'allimahu, 'that We might teach him'] is [to be understood as being] extra). God's way [always] prevails, exalted be He, nothing being beyond Him, but most people - and they are the disbelievers - do not know, this.
