Hizb 31
Juz 16
So they set out, but, when they got into a boat, the man made a hole in it. Moses exclaimed, "Have you made a hole in the boat to drown the people in it? You have indeed done a dreadful thing!" (71) He said: said I not that thou wouldst not be able to have with me patience? (72) Musa said: take me not to task for what I forget, and impose not in my affair hardship. (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: said I not unto thee that thou wouldst by no means be able to have with me patience? (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 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) He said: This is the parting between thee and me! I will announce unto thee the interpretation of that thou couldst not bear with patience. (78) As for the ship, it belonged to poor people working on the sea. I rendered it imperfect because behind them there was a king who was taking every ship by brutal 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 intended that their Lord should substitute for them one better than him in purity and nearer to mercy. (81) As for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and under it there was a treasure that belonged to them. Their father was a righteous man and your Lord intended that they should come of age and then bring forth their treasure as a mercy from your Lord; I did not do this of my own bidding. This is the true meaning of things with which you could not keep your patience." (82)
