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) He replied: "Did I not tell thee that thou wilt never be able to have patience with me?" (72) Moses said: "Do not take me to task at my forgetfulness, and do not be hard on me." (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) ۞ He said: "Did I not tell you you will not be able to bear with me?" (75) [Musa (Moses)] said: "If I ask you anything after this, keep me not in your company, you have received an excuse from me." (76) So they set out, until when they came to the people of a town, they asked its people for food, but they refused to offer them hospitality. And they found therein a wall about to collapse, so al-Khidhr restored it. [Moses] said, "If you wished, you could have taken for it a payment." (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 ship, it belonged to poor people working on the river, and I wished to mar it, for there was a king behind them who is taking every ship by force. (79) And as for the lad, his parents were believers and we feared lest he should oppress them by rebellion and disbelief. (80) So we intended that their Lord should change for the twain one better than he in piety and closer in affection. (81) As for the wall, it belonged to two orphan lads in the city, and under it was a treasure belonging to them. Their father was a righteous man; and thy Lord desired that they should come of age and then bring forth their treasure as a mercy from thy Lord. I did it not of my own bidding. This is the interpretation of that thou couldst not bear patiently.' (82)
