So they both set out; until when they had boarded the boat, the chosen bondman ruptured the boat; said Moosa, “Did you make a hole in the boat in order to drown its passengers? You have indeed done an evil thing.” (71) He said: Did I not say that you will not be able to have patience with me? (72) [Musa (Moses)] said: "Call me not to account for what I forgot, and be not hard upon me for my affair (with you)." (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) ۞ He said: Did I not tell thee that thou couldst not bear 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) So they departed and thereafter they came to the inhabitants of a village. They asked its inhabitants for some food, but they declined to host them. There, they found a wall about to fall down whereupon his companion restored it. He (Moses) said: 'Had you wished, you could have taken payment for that' (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 lad, his parents were believers and we feared lest he should oppress them by rebellion and disbelief. (80) “So we wished that their Lord may bestow them a child better, purer and nearer to mercy.” (81) And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the town and underneath it was a treasure belonging to them and their father had been righteous. So thy Lord intended that the twain should attain their maturity and bring forth for themselves their treasure as a mercy from thy Lord. And I did it not of mine own command; that is the interpretation of that wherewith thou wast not able to have patience. (82)
