    ثم رکب القصواء حتی اذا استوت بہ ناقتہ علی البیداء (اخرجہ مسلم ، الحج، باب حجة النبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم، رقم 1218)

    In some other traditions, there have been mentioned some other names as well like Jadaa and Azbaa.

     

    The name of the his horse was: Lukhaif, as in Sahih Bukhari:

    کان للنبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم فرساً یقال لہ: اللحیف۔ قال ابو عبد اللہ: وقال بعضھم: اللخیف (اخرجہ البخاری، الجھاد، باب اسم الفرس والحمار، رقم 2855)

     

    While the name of donkey was: Ufair (Bukhari, 2856) Once the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallah) borrowed the donkey of Hazrat Abu Talha, its name was: Mandoob.
