Quote:
{18:74} So they set out, until when they met a boy, al-Khidhr killed him. [Moses] said, "Have you killed a pure soul for other than [having killed] a soul? You have certainly done a deplorable thing."

I suggest,
{18:74} Then they set out, until when they met a boy, he (the sage) killed him. [Moses] said, "Did you kill a pure soul, without [another] soul (in retaliation)? You certainly did a deplorable thing.

Quote:
{18:75} [Al-Khidhr] said, "Did I not tell you that with me you would never be able to have patience?"

I suggest,
{18:75} He said, "Did I not say to you that with me you will not be able to have patience?"

Quote:
{18:76} [Moses] said, "If I should ask you about anything after this, then do not keep me as a companion. You have obtained from me an excuse."

I suggest,
{18:76} [Moses] said, "Surely, if I ask you about a thing after it, then do not accompany me. You have gotten from me an excuse."
