QURAN 12: 43 - 49

[] 12.  YUSUF  (Joseph) 
With the name of Allah, the Magnanimous, the Merciful.

43. and the king said:
 'Surely I saw seven fat cows eaten by seven thin;
  and seven green seeds, and others withered;
  o chiefs, acquaint me in my vision,
  - if you can elucidate visions;'
44. they said: 'A medley of dreams;
  and we do not know the interpretation of dreams.'
45. And who was saved among them recollected after an instant,
 said: 'I will tell you the news with its interpretation,
  so send me;'
46. 'Yusuf, if you are truthful, acquaint us in:
  seven fat cows eaten by seven thin,
  and seven green seeds, and others withered;
  for me to return to mankind for them to know;'
47. he said: 'You will sow for seven years as usual;
  so harvest it, so leave it in its seeds,
  - except a little from what you eat;
48. then after that you will be given seven strong,
  to eat what you advanced for them,
  except a little from what you stored;
49. then after that you will be given a year:
  rainstorms for mankind in it:
  and they will press in it.'

I have been studying and translating the Qu'ran for more than ten years,
full time, while living on my frugal savings. 
If you are able to help me with a grant, scholarship, bursary, stipend,
teaching position, or lectureship, I would highly appreciate it. 
Besides preparing the final formatting of the Qu'ran for publication,
and the Quranic Arabic Made Easy arabic-english / english-arabic dictionary,
I will be posting weekly extracts from the Qu'ran
on google+, linkedin, facebook and twitter.

Please do not use google translate,
or any other online translation
as they are highly inaccurate. 

Do not follow your own whims,
or what others tell you,
as they might be in contradiction to what is actually in the Qur'aan. 
The only way to know what the Qur'aan actually reveals
is to read the Qur'aan in a language you understand. 

Also, please consider the verses published here,
in the context of the ENTIRE Qur'aan
and in relation to ALL the other verses in the Qur'aan.
