Hizb 31
Juz 16
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 said, "Did I not tell you that you would not be able to remain patient with me?" (72) [Moses] said, "Do not blame me for what I forgot and do not cover me in my matter with difficulty." (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) ۞ The man said, "Did I not tell you that you would not be able to have any patience with me?" (75) (Moses) said: "If ever I ask thee about anything after this, keep me not in thy company: then wouldst thou have received (full) excuse from my side." (76) Then they proceeded: until, when they came to the inhabitants of a town, they asked them for food, but they refused them hospitality. They found there a wall on the point of falling down, but he set it up straight. (Moses) said: "If thou hadst wished, surely thou couldst have exacted some recompense for it!" (77) He answered: "This is the parting between me and thee: now will I tell thee the interpretation of (those things) over which thou wast unable to hold patience. (78) As for the ship, it belonged to certain poor men, who toiled upon the sea; and I desired to damage it, for behind them there was a king who was seizing every ship by brutal force. (79) As for the lad, his parents were believers; and we were afraid he would impose on them insolence and unbelief; (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) And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and there was beneath it a treasure for them, and their father had been righteous. So your Lord intended that they reach maturity and extract their treasure, as a mercy from your Lord. And I did it not of my own accord. That is the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience." (82)
