6-28 حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد ابن الحسن الصفار، عن إبراهيم بن هاشم، عن النوفلي، عن السكوني، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه، عن آبائه، عن علي بن أبي طالب عليهم السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: للدابة على صاحبها ست خصال: يبدأ بعلفها أذا نزل، ويعرض عليها الماء أذا مر به، ولا يضرب وجهها، فإنها تسبح بحمد ربها، ولا يقف على ظهرها إلا في سبيل الله عز وجل، ولا يحملها فوق طاقتها، ولا يكلفها من المشي إلا ما تطيق


6-28 Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Walid - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn al-Hassan al-Saffar quoted on the authority of Ibrahim ibn Hashim, on the authority of Al-Nawfaly, on the authority of Al-Sakoony, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad (MGB) , on the authority of his father, on the authority of his forefathers, on the authority of Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “A quadruped has six rights incumbent upon his owner. When he stops, he should feed it first. He should give it water whenever it passes by water. He should not hit it on the face, since it glorifies God with its face. He should not ride on its back, unless it is in the way of God. He should not overload it beyond its capability. He should not force it to walk more than it can.”
