Man has the inborn flesh. One, who can’t withstand his desires and hopes, considers his wills as legitimate rights irrespective of their lawlessness. The one doesn’t take into consideration his collocutor. The decretals deem suitable reprisal action, forgiving, or putting behind the misdeeds originate from evils. Pardon and forgiving are the behaviours of the persons who have overcome their evils. Having these attitudes and behaviours, a person performs a task which can be considered as the role-model for his circles in terms of disciplining the flesh. In this study, forgiveness is analysed in terms of religious and social aspects when struggling with evils and remarked the mission of this attitude to discipline the flesh. To explain this case, Hz. Yusuf’s propitious attitude toward his siblings’ disloyalty, infidelity, slander, and jealousy, physical violence, of a slave called Eflah, Zeliha’s slander, defamation and oppression are tried to presented with the testimony of the 15th century ottoman poet Hamdullah Hamdi’s Yusuf u Zeliha masnavi.
