Hizb 31
Juz 16
So they both proceeded, till, when they embarked the ship, he (Khidr) scuttled it. Musa (Moses) said: "Have you scuttled it in order to drown its people? Verily, you have committed a thing "Imra" (a Munkar - evil, bad, dreadful thing)." (71) 'Did I not I tell you' he replied, 'that you would not bear patiently with me' (72) Said [Moses]: "Take-me not to task for my having forgotten [myself,] and be not hard on me on account of what I have done!" (73) Then they both proceeded, till they met a boy, he (Khidr) killed him. Musa (Moses) said: "Have you killed an innocent person who had killed none? Verily, you have committed a thing "Nukra" (a great Munkar - prohibited, evil, dreadful thing)!" (74) ۞ He said: "Did I not tell you that you will not be able to patiently bear with me?" (75) He said: If I ask you about anything after this, keep me not in your company; indeed you shall have (then) found an excuse in my case. (76) So they departed; until, when they reached the people of a city, they asked the people for food, but they refused to receive them hospitably. There they found a wall about to tumble down, and so he set it up. He said, 'If thou hadst wished, thou couldst have taken a wage for that.' (77) He said: This shall be separation between me and you; now I will inform you of the significance of that with which you could not have patience. (78) As for the boat it belonged to some poor people who worked on the river, and I desired to damage it for beyond them lay the dominion of a king who was wont to seize every boat by force. (79) As for the youth, his parents were believers and we feared that he would trouble them by rebellion and denial of truth. (80) so We decided that their Lord should replace him by a better and more virtuous son. (81) As for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and under it there was a treasure that belonged to them. Their father was a righteous man and your Lord intended that they should come of age and then bring forth their treasure as a mercy from your Lord; I did not do this of my own bidding. This is the true meaning of things with which you could not keep your patience." (82)
