* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


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

Mention when Joseph said to his father Jacob ‘O my father read yā abati to indicate the omitted yā’ of genitive annexation sc. of yā abī; or read yā abata to indicate that an alif originally a yā’ has been omitted I saw in my sleep eleven planets and the sun and the moon I saw them repeated for emphasis prostrating themselves before me’ sājidīn this plural form is used to describe the act of ‘prostration’ which is an attribute associated with rational beings.
