قَالَ ٱجْعَلْنِي عَلَىٰ خَزَآئِنِ ٱلأَرْضِ إِنِّي حَفِيظٌ عَلِيمٌ
-Yûsuf ( يوسف )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

He, Joseph, said, ‘Place me in charge of the storehouses of the land, the land of Egypt. I am indeed a skilled custodian’, one worthy of custodianship thereof, and knowledgeable in such affairs — it is also said [that he meant]: [I am indeed] a [competent] scribe and accountant.
