The wrongness of calling each other donkey

Al-Imām Mālik was asked about who says to another: “Oh donkey.”

He answered: “(He gets) flogged.”

The questioner said: “What when he says to him, oh horse?”

He answered: “(Then) you get flogged!”

He goes on: “Oh weak man (da’īf), have you ever heard someone say to another; oh horse?!!”

سُئل الإمام مالك عمن قال لآخر: يا حمار،فقال:يُجلد. فقال السائل:فإن قال له يا فرس؟قال:تُجلد أنت! ثم قال:ياضعيف،هل سمعت أحدايقول لآخر:يافرس؟!!
