Virtue of expending on horses in the path of Allah


[ 15285 ] 1 ـ محمد بن علي بن الحسين قال : قال رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) : الخيل معقود بنواصيها الخير إلى يوم القيامة والمنفق عليها في سبيل الله كالباسط يده بالصدقة لا يقبضها .


1 – Muhammad b. `Ali b. al-Husayn said: The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله said: Horses, knotted in their forelocks is goodness until the day of the resurrection, and the one who expends on it in the path of Allah is as the one stretches out his hand with charity, not clasping it.


[ 15286 ] 2 ـ قال : وقال رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) في قول الله عز وجل : ( الذين ينفقون أموالهم بالليل والنهار سرا وعلانية فلهم أجرهم عند ربهم ولا خوف عليهم ولا هم يحزنون ) قال : نزلت في النفقة على الخيل .


2 – He said: And the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله said regarding the saying of Allah عز وجل “Those who expend their wealth by night and day, secretly and openly, they shall have their wage with their Lord. No fear shall come on them, nor shall they grieve.” (2:274) He said: It was sent down regarding expenditure on horses.
