After the news of the whereabouts of Prophet Yusuf (a.s) was made known, in line with his further request, the whole family immediately prepared themselves to travel to Egypt to meet him.
As the brothers of Prophet Yusuf (a.s) were travelling back to Qan’aan to inform their father that they actually found Prophet Yusuf (a.s) after they were asked to look for him
When the brothers of Prophet Yusuf (a.s) heard their father’s response and reference to his sorrow for the loss of Prophet Yusuf (a.s), their response is narrated in Verse 85 which says:
When Prophet Yusuf (a.s)’s plan to keep his brother back started to materialise, his other brothers became very stressed while Prophet Yusuf (a.s) and Bienyamin were very happy.
After having entered Egypt from the various gates as advised by Prophet Ya’koob (a.s), the following verses narrate the second encounter that the brothers of Prophet Yusuf (a.s) has with him.
After the brothers of Prophet Yusuf (a.s) returned home with the food supplies they obtained from Egypt, they shared it with their father.
Once Prophet Yusuf (a.s) was appointed as Minister of Finance and became established in this position, seven years of rain and good times came and passed very quickly.
After Prophet Yusuf (a.s) was exonerated of having committed any crime, the king ordered that he should be released from prison.
After Prophet Yusuf (a.s) interpreted the king’s dream in a unique manner, a messenger was sent to Prophet Yusuf (a.s) asking him to come out of prison as the king wanted him close to him.
While Prophet Yusuf (a.s) spent an extended stay in prison, time passed and his interpretation of the dreams of his two prison inmates came true.
