The Philosophy of Hiring Horses in the Holy Quran (An Interpretive Study)


  • Ass. Prof. Dr. Barkawi Kalib Darim


That the job of the horse since it was found on earth with humans, it was a necessity created by the holy street, and employed it for his successor, the man on earth, so that it would be a help for him in wars and an adornment that would be adorned with his presence with him so that he could share his livelihood, and brags when she is in his hands, carry his luggage on his move and travel. The Holy Street mentioned it in his Holy Qur’an in several verses to be a witness to that.

((Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly))  Surah Al-Anfal (60).

(Fair in the eyes of men is the love of things they covet--------- horses branded (for blood and excellence); and (wealth of) cattle and well-tilled land. Such are the possessions of this world's life; but in nearness to Allah is the best of the goals (To return to)) Surah Al-Imran (14).

 ((And (He has created) horses, mules, and donkeys, for you to ride and use for show; and He has created (other) things of which ye have no knowledge)) Surah An-Nahil (8).
