So when they had gone further (beyond that meeting place), (Moses) said to his young company: “Bring to us our breakfast, certainly we have met with fatigue from our journey”.
(The young one) said: “Did you see when we took refuge on the rock, then I truly forgot the fish, none but Satan made me forget to remember it, and it took its way into the sea in a strange way”.
(Moses) said: “This is what we have been seeking for”. So they returned retracing their footsteps.
Then they found one of Our servants whom We had granted Mercy from Our Presence and whom We had taught knowledge from Our Secret Knowledge (Ilm-i Ledun).
Moses said to him: “May I depend on you so that you may teach me of what you have been taught from the secret knowledge in order that I may reach Rushd (the Immaterial Maturity)”.
(Khidr) said: “Surely you cannot have patience (for the events that will happen) when you are in my yolk”.
And how can you have patience for what you do not encompass in knowledge as it is not given to you?
(Moses) said: “If Allah wills, you will find me patient and I shall not rebel against you in any matter under your yolk”.
(Khidr) said: “If you depend on me, then do not question me about any thing until I myself speak to you about it”.
So they both proceeded. When they embarked the ship, he made a hole in it. (Moses) said: “Have you made a hole in it to drown its inmates? Certainly you have done a grievous thing”.
(Khidr) said: “Did I not say that you will not be able to have patience with me”?
(Moses) said: “Do not rebuke me for what I forgot and do not constrain me to a difficult thing in your commands”.
Then they both proceeded, till they met a boy and (Khidr) killed him. (Moses) said: "Have you killed a pure soul for other than (having killed) a soul? Certainly you have made an extremely evil thing (contrary to Divine Law)”.
