* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ ٱرْجِعُوۤاْ إِلَىٰ أَبِيكُمْ فَقُولُواْ يٰأَبَانَا إِنَّ ٱبْنَكَ سَرَقَ وَمَا شَهِدْنَآ إِلاَّ بِمَا عَلِمْنَا وَمَا كُنَّا لِلْغَيْبِ حَافِظِينَ }

Go back to your father and say “O our father your son has indeed stolen and we testified against him only regarding what we knew from the certainty of having seen the king’s cup in his saddlebag; we could not have guarded against the Unseen that which was hidden from us when we gave our pledge had we known that he would steal we would not have taken him with us to Egypt.
