فَلَمَّارَءَا قَمِيصَهُۥ قُدَّ مِن دُبُرٍ قَالَ إِنَّهُۥ مِن كَيْدِكُنَّ إِنَّ كَيْدَكُنَّ عَظِيمٌ (28

29.  Yuu-sufu  ‘a’-riz  ‘an  haa-zaa.  Wastag-firii  lizambiki  ‘Innaki  kunti  minal-khaati-‘iin.

(Section 4)




Kayda – (the guile), in the common mode of speech, it is called “a trick, stratagem”. The guile is such a trick, which is thought by someone secretly before time for acquiring own object, and make a plan as soon as one gets opportunity, and he gets own desire fulfilled. In Arabic language, it is called “kayda”. Being good or bad of the kayda (the guile) depends on its aim.


General agent of the King of (Aziz) Egypt examined the shirt of Joseph (peace be upon him) and saw that the shirt was torn from behind. Spontaneously he decided that the woman was faulty, whereas Joseph (peace be upon him) was faultless. He addressed to the woman and said: Such kinds of the guiles can be of the women as you. They know great tricks for acquiring their object.


He said to Joseph (peace be upon him): Mention of this occurrence is useless. This woman is sinner. O woman! Repent of your sin and ask forgiveness of Him (peace be upon him) to whom you tried to asperse; because you are entirely blameworthy at guilt in this matter.
