Hizb 31
Juz 16
Then the twain journeyed until when they embarked in a boat, he scuttled it. Musa said: hast thou scuttled it that thou mayest drown the people thereof? Assuredly thou hast committed a thing grievous. (71) He said: Did I not say that you will not be able to have patience with me? (72) He said: Blame me not for what I forgot, and do not constrain me to a difficult thing in my affair. (73) They continued on their journey until they met a young boy whom he killed. Moses said, "How could you murder an innocent soul? This is certainly a horrible act". (74) ۞ He said: said I not unto thee that thou wouldst by no means be able to have with me 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 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 you and me; I shall now tell you the interpretation of the matters you could not patiently bear.” (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) 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 decided that their Lord should replace him by a better and more virtuous son. (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)
