Hizb 31
Juz 16
So they went (their way) until when they embarked in the boat he made a hole in it. (Musa) said: Have you made a hole in it to drown its inmates? Certainly you have done a grievous thing. (71) [Al-Khidh r] said, "Did I not say that with me you would never be able to have patience?" (72) Said Moosa, “Do not apprehend me upon my forgetting, and do not impose difficulty on me in my task.” (73) So they went on until, when they met a boy, he slew him. (Musa) said: Have you slain an innocent person otherwise than for manslaughter? Certainly you have done an evil thing. (74) ۞ 'Did I not tell you' he replied, 'that you would not be able to bear patiently 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) So they set out, until when they came to the people of a town, they asked its people for food, but they refused to offer them hospitality. And they found therein a wall about to collapse, so al-Khidhr restored it. [Moses] said, "If you wished, you could have taken for it a payment." (77) [Al-Khidh r] said, "This is parting between me and you. I will inform you of the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience. (78) That boat belonged to poor people who used to toil on the sea. I damaged it because there was a king after them who used to seize every ship by force. (79) As for the boy, his parents were believers, but we feared that he would harass them with defiance and disbelief. (80) "So we intended that their Lord should change him for them for one better in righteousness and near to mercy. (81) "The wall belonged to two young orphans in the town whose father had been a righteous man, and a treasure of theirs lay underneath it. So your Lord wanted them to come of age and then to dig up their treasure as a mercy from Him. I did not do [it] of my own accord. That is the explanation of the things about which you were not able to restrain yourself." (82)
