How To Achieve The Highest Nobility of Character?
Please click on any of the images below to view the 2-minute trailer.

"There is no person, of whatever religion, who does not feel that Yusuf behaves with the highest nobility and magnanimity of character, when, finally, the brothers who sought to harm him, are in his power. Yusuf forgives them, because they do at last recognise their own wrongs and they do at last understand why Yusuf was “nearer and dearer” to their father and to God than they were. No person, of whatever religion, can possibly feel that it would make a better ending if the brothers were not reconciled; if there were no forgiveness; if, because he has power over them, Yusuf punished his brothers – banished them, or threw them into a well, or sold them into slavery, imprisoned them, etc. These are things he suffered; but he does not desire that for his brothers. Rather, he desires for them guidance, forgiveness, understanding and peace. In the  same way, the Prophet, salla-llahu‘alayhiwa-sallam, did not wish those of his kinsfolk among the Quraysh who persecuted him and tormented his followers to be punished for that. Rather, he wished that they should be guided out of that to what was better for them. It is fitting that, at the conquest of Makkah when the power of Quraysh was broken, he used words from this surah to  proclaim reconciliation and forgiveness."
