Israil felt that the dream had a message, Yusuf was going to have a great future. He told Yusuf not to tell his brothers about the dream. Israi's son were still thinking of their plan to kill Yusuf. They pestered Israil to let them take Yusuf with them to their work.
At last Israil agreed, but he made them promise to look after him. They were so bad they knew they would break their promise. At the end of the day they asked Yusuf to take off his shirt. They killed a sheep and put blood all over Yusuf's shirt; then they threw Yusuf into a well. They went home and showed the shirt to Israil. Pretending to be very upset; they told their father that Yusuf had got left behind and a wolf had eaten him!
Israil was very upset but he did not believe the story. He knew that one day Allah would bring Yusuf back to him. Poor Yusuf spent the night in the well. The next morning, when someone put the bucket down the well to get water, he sat in the bucket.
The man had to get help to pull the bucket up. He was very surprised to see a boy in it.
The man was a merchant. The merchant decided to take Yusuf with him to Egypt and to sell him as a slave. When they arrived in Egypt, one of the noble families bought Yusuf.
The man who bought him told his wife that they should take care of him, as he was a good-looking child
and they had no children of their own. Yusuf became one of the family.
