أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنِ الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ یَحْیَی عَنْ جَدِّهِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ رَاشِدٍ عَنْ یَعْقُوبَ بْنِ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِیمَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْجَعْفَرِیِّ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا الْحَسَنِ مُوسَی بْنَ جَعْفَرٍ ع یَقُولُ مَنِ ارْتَبَطَ فَرَساً عَتِیقاً مُحِیَتْ عَنْهُ ثَلَاثُ سَیِّئَاتٍ فِی کُلِّ یَوْمٍ وَ کُتِبَتْ لَهُ إِحْدَی وَ عِشْرُونَ حَسَنَهً وَ مَنِ ارْتَبَطَ هَجِیناً مُحِیَتْ عَنْهُ فِی کُلِّ یَوْمٍ سَیِّئَتَانِ وَ کُتِبَتْ لَهُ سَبْعُ حَسَنَاتٍ وَ مَنِ ارْتَبَطَ بِرْذَوْناً یُرِیدُ بِهِ جَمَالًا وَ قَضَاءَ حَوَائِجَ وَ دَفْعَ عَدُوٍّ عَنْهُ مُحِیَتْ عَنْهُ فِی کُلِّ یَوْمٍ سَیِّئَهٌ وَ کُتِبَتْ لَهُ سِتُّ حَسَنَاتٍ.


1. It is narrated that Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.) said, “One who looks after an ‘Ateeq horse’ his three sins will be forgiven daily. He will be given twenty one rewards. One who looks after a ‘Hajin horse’ his two sins will be wiped off daily and he will be given seven rewards. One who keeps a Birzaun horse for his use and for protection against enemy, a sin will be wiped off daily for him and he will be granted six rewards.




أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَلِیُّ بْنُ الْحُسَیْنِ السَّعْدَآبَادِیُّ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْبَرْقِیِّ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ الْحَکَمِ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ أَبَانٍ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص الْخَیْرُ مَعْقُودٌ بِنَوَاصِی الْخَیْلِ إِلَی یَوْمِ الْقِیَامَهِ.


2. Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “The reward till the Day of Judgment is tied to the forehead of a horse.”




حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِیٍّ مَاجِیلَوَیْهِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَمِّی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَبِی الْقَاسِمِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْبَرْقِیِّ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِی عُمَیْرٍ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ رِئَابٍ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِذَا اشْتَرَیْتَ دَابَّهً فَإِنَّ مَنْفَعَتَهَا لَکَ وَ رِزْقَهَا عَلَی اللَّهِ.


3. It was narrated to me by Muhammad b. Ali Majluwayh who said it was narrated to me by my uncle Muhammad b. Abi al-Qasim from Ahmad b. Abi Abdillah al-Barqi from his father from Ibn Abi ’Umayr from Ali b. Riyab from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “If you buy a domestic animal you will benefit from it and its sustenance is with Allah.”




حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُوسَی بْنِ الْمُتَوَکِّلِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَلِیُّ بْنُ الْحُسَیْنِ السَّعْدَآبَادِیُّ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ بَکْرِ بْنِ صَالِحٍ عَنْ سُلَیْمَانَ بْنِ الْجَعْفَرِیِّ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا الْحَسَنِ الْکَاظِمَ ع یَقُولُ مَنِ ارْتَبَطَ فَرَساً أَشْقَرَ أَغَرَّ وَ أَقْرَحَ فَإِنْ کَانَ أَغَرَّ سَائِلَ الْغُرَّهِ بِهِ وَضَحٌ فِی قَوَائِمِهِ فَهُوَ أَحَبُّ إِلَیَّ لَمْ یَدْخُلْ بَیْتَهُ فَقْرٌ مَا دَامَ ذَلِکَ الْفَرَسُ فِیهِ وَ مَا دَامَ أَیْضاً فِی مِلْکِهِ لَا یَدْخُلُ بَیْتَهُ حَنَقٌ قَالَ وَ سَمِعْتُهُ یَقُولُ مَنِ ارْتَبَطَ فَرَساً لِیُرْهِبَ بِهِ عَدُوّاً أَوْ یَسْتَعِینَ بِهِ عَلَی جَمَالِهِ لَمْ یَزَلْ مُعَاناً عَلَیْهِ أَبَداً مَا دَامَ فِی مِلْکِهِ وَ لَا یَدْخُلُ بَیْتَهُ خَصَاصَهٌ.


4. It is narrated that Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.) said, “One who domesticates a horse having white forehead or a part white for the sake of Allah, his house will not have poverty as long as the horse is present in it. He will not face any difficulty as long as this horse is with him.” It is also narrated that Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.) said, “One who keeps a horse to scare or destroy an enemy, gets help as long as the horse is with him and his house will not have poverty.”




وَ بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ عَنْ سُلَیْمَانَ بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ الْجَعْفَرِیِّ عَنْ أَبِی جَعْفَرٍ الْبَاقِرِ ع قَالَ: مَنْ خَرَجَ مِنْ مَنْزِلِهِ أَوْ مَنْزِلِ غَیْرِهِ فَلَقِیَ فَرَساً أَشْقَرَ بِهِ وَضَحٌ أَوْ کَانَتْ لَهُ غُرَّهٌ سَائِلٌ فَهُوَ الْعَیْشُ کُلُّ الْعَیْشِ لَمْ یَلْقَ فِی ذَلِکَ الْیَوْمِ إِلَّا سُرُوراً وَ إِنْ تَوَجَّهَ فِی حَاجَهٍ فَلَقِیَ الْفَرَسَ قَضَی اللَّهُ حَاجَتَهُ.


5. And from the previous chain from Sulayman b. Ja’far al-Ja’fari from Abi Ja’far al-Baqir (a.s.) who said: “One who sees a horse having a part of its body white while coming out of his or someone’s house, he will have lots of happiness on that day. If he is going for some work and sees such a horse on his way, Allah will accomplish that task and fulfill his desire.”
