Hizb 31
Juz 16
Then the twain journeyed until when they embarked in a boat, he scuttled it. Musa said: hast thou scuttled it that thou mayest drown the people thereof? Assuredly thou hast committed a thing grievous. (71) He replied: "Did I not tell you that you will not be able to patiently bear with me?" (72) He said, "Do not take me to task for what I have forgotten, and do not be hard on me on account of what I have done!" (73) Then they proceeded: until, when they met a young man, he slew him. Moses said: "Hast thou slain an innocent person who had slain none? Truly a foul (unheard of) thing hast thou done!" (74) ۞ He said, “Did I not tell you that you will never be able to patiently stay with me?” (75) He (Moses) said: 'If I question you again do not let me be your companion; you already have enough excuse' (76) So they went on until when they came to the people of a town, they asked them for food, but they refused to entertain them as guests. Then they found in it a wall which was on the point of falling, so he put it into a right state. (Musa) said: If you had pleased, you might certainly have taken a recompense for it. (77) (Khidr) said: "This is the parting between me and you, I will tell you the interpretation of (those) things over which you were unable to hold patience. (78) As for the ship, it belonged to poor people working at sea. So I intended to cause defect in it as there was after them a king who seized every [good] ship by force. (79) “And in respect of the boy his parents were Muslims and we feared that he may incite them to rebellion and disbelief.” (80) "So we intended that their Lord should change him for them for one better in righteousness and near to mercy. (81) "And as for that wall, it belonged to two orphan boys [living] in the town, and beneath it was [buried] a treasure belonging to them [by right]. Now their father had been a righteous man, and so thy Sustainer willed it that when they come of age they should bring forth their treasure by thy Sustainer's grace. "And I did not do [any of] this of my own accord: this is the real meaning of all [those events] that thou wert unable to bear with patience." (82)
