Hizb 31
Juz 16
Then the two went forth until, when they embarked on the boat, he made a hole in it, whereupon Moses exclaimed: "Have you made a hole in it so as to drown the people in the boat? You have certainly done an awful thing." (71) He (Khidr) said: "Did I not tell you, that you would not be able to have patience with me?" (72) Musa said: take me not to task for what I forget, and impose not in my affair hardship. (73) The two went on till they came to a boy, whom he killed. Moses exclaimed: "You have killed an innocent soul who had taken no life. You have done a most abominable thing!" (74) ۞ He said: "Did I not tell you you will not be able to bear with me?" (75) Musa said: if I ask thee regarding aught after this, company not with me; surely there hath reached to thee from my side an excuse. (76) So they departed and thereafter they came to the inhabitants of a village. They asked its inhabitants for some food, but they declined to host them. There, they found a wall about to fall down whereupon his companion restored it. He (Moses) said: 'Had you wished, you could have taken payment for that' (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 men who worked on the river and I wished that I should damage it, and there was behind them a king who seized every boat by force. (79) And as for the boy, his parents were believers and we feared lest he should make disobedience and ingratitude to come upon them: (80) So we desired that their Lord might give them in his place one better than him in purity and nearer to having compassion. (81) "As for the wall, it belonged to two youths, orphans, in the Town; there was, beneath it, a buried treasure, to which they were entitled: their father had been a righteous man: So thy Lord desired that they should attain their age of full strength and get out their treasure - a mercy (and favour) from thy Lord. I did it not of my own accord. Such is the interpretation of (those things) over which thou wast unable to hold patience." (82)
