أَبَانٌ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَطَاءٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) قَالَ أَتَى جَبْرَئِيلُ (عليه السلام) رَسُولَ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) بِالْبُرَاقِ أَصْغَرَ مِنَ الْبَغْلِ وَ أَكْبَرَ مِنَ الْحِمَارِ مُضْطَرِبَ الْأُذُنَيْنِ عَيْنَيْهِ فِي حَافِرِهِ وَ خُطَاهُ مَدَّ بَصَرِهِ وَ إِذَا انْتَهَى إِلَى جَبَلٍ قَصُرَتْ يَدَاهُ وَ طَالَتْ رِجْلَاهُ فَإِذَا هَبَطَ طَالَتْ يَدَاهُ وَ قَصُرَتْ رِجْلَاهُ أَهْدَبَ الْعُرْفِ الْأَيْمَنِ لَهُ جَنَاحَانِ مِنْ خَلْفِهِ.


567. Aban, from Abdullah Bin Ata’I, who has said the following: Abu Ja’far (asws) has said: ‘Jibraeel (as) came to the Rasool Allah (saww) with the Buraaq (ride) which was smaller than a mule, and larger than the donkey. It had two vibrating ears, and its eyes were in its hooves, and its steps were as far as its eyes could extend to. And if it ascends a mountain, its forelegs become shorter and its hind legs extend. So if it descends, its forelegs extend and its hind legs shorten. Its mane hung to the right of it, and it had two wings behind it.
