[Yusuf 12:23] And the woman in whose house he was, allured him not to restrain himself and she closed all the doors - and said, "Come! It is you I address!"; he said, "(I seek) The refuge of Allah - indeed the governor is my master - he treats me well; undoubtedly the unjust never prosper."

[Yusuf 12:24] And indeed the woman desired him; and he too would have desired her were he not to witness the sign of his Lord *; this is what We did, to turn away evil and lewdness from him; indeed He is one of Our chosen bondmen. (* Allah saved him and he never desired this immorality.)

[Yusuf 12:25] And they both raced towards the door, and the woman tore his shirt from behind, and they both found her husband at the door; she said, "What is the punishment of the one who sought evil with your wife, other than prison or a painful torture?"

[Yusuf 12:26] Said Yusuf, "It was she who lured me, that I may not guard myself" - and a witness from her own household testified; "If his shirt is torn from the front, then the woman is truthful and he has spoken incorrectly."

[Yusuf 12:27] "And if his shirt is torn from behind, then the woman is a liar and he is truthful."

[Yusuf 12:28] So when the governor saw his shirt torn from behind, he said, "Indeed this is a deception of women; undoubtedly the deception of women is very great."

[Yusuf 12:29] "O Yusuf! Disregard this - and O woman! Seek forgiveness for your sin; indeed you are of the mistaken."

Section 4

[Yusuf 12:30] And some women of the city said, "The governorís wife is seducing her young slave; indeed his love has taken root in her heart; and we find her clearly lost."
