Hadith No: 903
Narrated/Authority of Ubai bin Kab
Allah's Apostle (SAW) said, "Musa (Moses) the Apostle (SAW) of Allah," and then he narrated the whole story about him. Khidr said to Musa, "Did not I tell you that you can have no patience with me." (18.72). Musa then violated the agreement for the first time because of forgetfulness, then Moses promised that if he asked Al-Khidr about anything, the latter would have the right to desert him. Moses abided by that condition and on the third occasion he intentionally asked Al-Khidr and caused that condition to be applied. The three occasions referred to above are referred to by the following Verses: '....Call me not to account for what I forgot, and be not hard upon me for my affair (with you).' (18.73) '....Till they met a boy and he (Al-Khidr) killed him....' 'Then they both proceeded ... found therein a wall which was on the verge of falling and he (Al-Khidr) set it up straight....' " (18.77)
