So they twain set out till, when they were in the ship, he made a hole therein. (Moses) said: Hast thou made a hole therein to drown the folk thereof? Thou verily hast done a dreadful thing. (71) He said: said I not that thou wouldst not be able to have with me patience? (72) Moses said: "Rebuke me not for forgetting, nor grieve me by raising difficulties in my case." (73) So they set out again; until when they met a boy, the chosen bondman slew him Moosa said, “Did you slay an innocent soul not in retribution for another? You have indeed done an extremely evil thing.” (74) ۞ (Khidr) said: "Did I not tell you that you can have no patience with me?" (75) Said [Moses]: "If, after this, I should ever question thee, keep me not in thy company: [for by] now thou hast heard enough excuses from me." (76) And so the two went on, till, when they came upon some village people, they asked them for food; but those [people] refused them all hospitality. And they saw in that [village] a wall which was on the point of tumbling down, and [the sage] rebuilt it [whereupon Moses] said: "Hadst thou so wished, surely thou couldst [at least] have obtained some payment for it?" (77) He answered, "This is where you and I must part company. But first I will tell you the meaning of the things you could not bear with patiently. (78) "The boat belonged to some destitute people who were using it as a means of their living in the sea. The king had imposed a certain amount of tax on every undamaged boat. I damaged it so that they would not have to pay the tax. (79) "The young boy had very faithful parents. We were afraid that out of love for him they would lose their faith in God and commit rebellion (80) so We decided that their Lord should replace him by a better and more virtuous son. (81) “And in respect of the wall it belonged to two orphan boys of the city, and beneath it was their treasure, and their father was a virtuous man; therefore your Lord willed that they should reach their maturity and remove their treasure; by the mercy of your Lord; and I have not done this at my own command; this is the interpretation of the matters you could not patiently bear.” (* Hazrat Khidr was given the knowledge of the hidden as in all three explanations he gave).
