Hadith #4

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 Kadhim (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 Kadhim (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.”
