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 said: said I not that thou wouldst not be able to have with me patience? (72) Moses said, "Please, forgive my forgetfulness. Do not oblige me with what is difficult for me to endure." (73) So they set out, until when they met a boy, al-Khidh r killed him. [Moses] said, "Have you killed a pure soul for other than [having killed] a soul? You have certainly done a deplorable thing." (74) ۞ [Al-Khidh r] said, "Did I not tell you that with me you would never be able to have patience?" (75) He said, 'If I question thee on anything after this, then keep me company no more; thou hast already experienced excuse sufficient on my part.' (76) So they twain journeyed on till, when they came unto the folk of a certain township, they asked its folk for food, but they refused to make them guests. And they found therein a wall upon the point of falling into ruin, and he repaired it. (Moses) said: If thou hadst wished, thou couldst have taken payment for it. (77) He replied, "This is where we should depart from one another. I shall give an explanation to you for all that I have done for which you could not remain patient. (78) As for the boat, it belonged to poor men working in the sea, so I intended to damage it, for there was before them a prince taking every boat by force. (79) And as for the boy, his parents were believers, and we feared that he would overburden them by transgression and disbelief. (80) so we desired that their Lord should give to them in exchange one better than he in purity, and nearer in tenderness. (81) “And in respect of the wall it belonged to two orphan boys of the city, and beneath it was their treasure, and their father was a virtuous man; therefore your Lord willed that they should reach their maturity and remove their treasure; by the mercy of your Lord; and I have not done this at my own command; this is the interpretation of the matters you could not patiently bear.” (* Hazrat Khidr was given the knowledge of the hidden as in all three explanations he gave).
