* تفسير Kashani Tafsir

{ إِذْ قَالَ يُوسُفُ لأَبِيهِ يٰأَبتِ إِنِّي رَأَيْتُ أَحَدَ عَشَرَ كَوْكَباً وَٱلشَّمْسَ وَٱلْقَمَرَ رَأَيْتُهُمْ لِي سَاجِدِينَ }

'O my father I saw eleven planets, to the end of this [verse]: this is one of those dreams which as we mentioned in sūrat Hūd is in need of interpretation (taʿbīr) because the imaginal [faculty] is transferred from the noble souls - whose prostration to him [Joseph] was revealed to the soul from the Unseen - to the planets, the sun and the moon, which at the same time were [in fact] nothing other than his parents and his brothers.
