Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

[Yusuf 12:1] Alif-Lam-Ra *; these are verses of the clear Book. (* Alphabets of the Arabic language; Allah and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.)

[Yusuf 12:2] Indeed We have sent down an Arabic Qur’an, so that you may perceive.

[Yusuf 12:3] We relate to you the best narrative because We have sent the divine revelation of this Qur’an, to you; although surely you were unaware before this.

[Yusuf 12:4] Remember when Yusuf (Joseph) said to his father, "O my father! I saw eleven stars and the sun and the moon - I saw them prostrating to me."
