Translation

They said: "Art thou indeed Joseph?" He said, "I am Joseph, and this is my brother: Allah has indeed been gracious to us (all): behold, he that is righteous and patient,- never will Allah suffer the reward to be lost, of those who do right."

Tafsir

They said - after recognising him by his noble traits - cautiously [inquiring]: 'Is it really (read a innaka, either pronouncing both hamzas, or by not pronouncing the second, but in both cases inserting an alif) you, Joseph?'. He said, 'I am [indeed] Joseph, and this is my brother. God has truly shown favour, He has been gracious, to us, by bringing [us] together. Verily if one fears, [if] one fears God, and endures, what happens to him, God does not waste the wage of those who are virtuous', in this [respect] (the overt noun [almuhsineen, 'the virtuous'] has replaced the [third person] pronominalisation).
