وَقَالَ لِفِتْيَانِهِ ٱجْعَلُواْ بِضَاعَتَهُمْ فِي رِحَالِهِمْ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَعْرِفُونَهَآ إِذَا ٱنْقَلَبُوۤاْ إِلَىٰ أَهْلِهِمْ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْجِعُونَ
-Yûsuf ( يوسف )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And he said to his young men (li-fityatihi: a variant reading has li-fityānihi, ‘his servants’): ‘Place their merchandise, that [money] with which they bought the supplies, and these were a few dirhams, in their saddlebags, their [supply] sacks, so that they may recognise it when they return to their folk, and empty their sacks, and so come back’, to us, deeming it unlawful to retain these [monies].
