قَالَ سَوْفَ أَسْتَغْفِرُ لَكُمْ رَبِّيۤ إِنَّهُ هُوَ ٱلْغَفُورُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ
-Yûsuf ( يوسف )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

He said, ‘Assuredly I shall ask forgiveness for you of my Lord. Lo! He is the Forgiving, the Merciful’: he [Jacob] put off this [plea of forgiveness] until [the last hour] before dawn, in order to be closer to [the likelihood of] it being accepted, or [he put it off] until the eve of Friday. They then departed for Egypt, where Joseph and the senior courtiers came out to meet them.
