Juz 16
So they twain set out till, when they were in the ship, he made a hole therein. (Moses) said: Hast thou made a hole therein to drown the folk thereof? Thou verily hast done a dreadful thing. (71) He answered: "Did I not tell thee that thou canst have no patience with me?" (72) (Moses) said: "Do not hold me for having forgotten, and do not reprove me and make my task difficult." (73) Then they both proceeded, till they met a boy, he (Khidr) killed him. Musa (Moses) said: "Have you killed an innocent person who had killed none? Verily, you have committed a thing "Nukra" (a great Munkar - prohibited, evil, dreadful thing)!" (74) ۞ (Khidr) said: "Did I not tell you that you can have no patience with me?" (75) Moses replied, "If I ever ask you about anything after this, do not let me accompany you. I will have given you sufficient excuse." (76) The two went on till they came upon some villagers, and asked the people for food, but they refused to entertain them. There they found a wall that was crumbling, which he repaired. Moses remarked: "You could have demanded wages for it if you liked." (77) (Khidr) said: "This is the parting between me and you, I will tell you the interpretation of (those) things over which you were unable to hold patience. (78) “In respect of the boat it belonged to the poor people who worked on the river, so I wished to flaw it and behind them was a king who would capture every sound ship.” (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 we desired that their Lord should grant them another in his place, a son more upright and more tender hearted. (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)
