And recall what time Musa said unto his page: I shall not cease until I reach the confluence of the two seas, or I shall go on for ages. 60 So when they had reached the junction of the two (rivers) they forgot their fish, and it took its way into the sea, going away. 61 Moses asked his young companion when they crossed this point, "Bring us our food; the journey has made us tired." 62 He said, “Just imagine when we had taken shelter near the rock, so indeed I forgot the fish; and none but Satan caused me to forget to mention it; and the fish took its way into the sea its amazing!” 63 He said: This is what we sought for; so they returned retracing their footsteps. 64 Then the twain found a bondman from Our bondmen, him We had vouchsafed a mercy from before Us, and him We had taught from Our presence a knowledge. 65 Moses asked him, "Can I follow you so that you would teach me the guidance that you have received?" 66 He said: Surely you cannot have patience with me 67 And how can you have patience for what you do not encompass in knowledge?" 68 He said: Allah willing, thou shalt find me patient and I shall not in aught gainsay thee. 69 He said: then if thou wilt follow me ask me not of anything until I begin thereof some mention. 70
