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 tell you," he replied, "that you will not be able to bear with me?" (72) He said: Blame me not for what I forgot, and do not constrain me to a difficult thing in my affair. (73) So they departed; until, when they met a lad, he slew him. He said, 'What, hast thou slain a soul innocent, and that not to retaliate for a soul slain? Thou hast indeed done a horrible thing.' (74) ۞ He said: Did I not tell thee that thou couldst not bear with me? (75) He said, 'If I question thee on anything after this, then keep me company no more; thou hast already experienced excuse sufficient on my part.' (76) Then they both proceeded, till, when they came to the people of a town, they asked them for food, but they refused to entertain them. Then they found therein a wall about to collapse and he (Khidr) set it up straight. [Musa (Moses)] said: If you had wished, surely, you could have taken wages for it!" (77) Said he, 'This is the parting between me and thee. Now I will tell thee the interpretation of that thou couldst not bear patiently. (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 lad, his parents were people of faith, and we feared lest he should plague them with transgression and disbelief, (80) and so we desired that their Sustainer grant them in his stead [a child] of greater purity than him, and closer [to them] in loving tenderness. (81) And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the town and underneath it was a treasure belonging to them and their father had been righteous. So thy Lord intended that the twain should attain their maturity and bring forth for themselves their treasure as a mercy from thy Lord. And I did it not of mine own command; that is the interpretation of that wherewith thou wast not able to have patience. (82)
