A beautiful poem written by Hazrat Hassan Ibn Thabit (Radiallahu Anhu)

When the enemies of Islam would use their poets to defame RasoolAllah (Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam), the Messenger of Allah would send forward his dear Hassan Ibn Thabit (Radiallahu Anhu) who would in his most beautiful words defend the honour of his Beloved (Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam)

Hazrat Hassan Ibn Thabit (Radiallahu Anhu) was one of the eldest companions, accepting Islam in his 60's, he went on to live till the age of about 120. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) had so much love for Hazrat Hassan Ibn Thabit (Radiallahu Anhu) that he ordered for a Mimbar (pulpit) to be established for him, so he could stand upon it when delivering his poetry. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) prayed for him saying that the Angel Gabriel (as) will support you as long as you defend Allah and His Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam).
We read many poems and listen to many nasheed reciters, but Hazrat Hassan Ibn Thabit (Radiallahu Anhu) had the honour of being the first of them all. Whilst many of the naats/nasheeds these days are based upon what the poet has read or heard, the words of Hazrat Hassan Ibn Thabit's (Radiallahu Anhu) were a reflection of his blessed eyes, for his poetry is based upon what he himself has seen.

The poetry of Hazrat Hassan Ibn Thabit (Radiallahu Anhu) has become renown and loved throughout the Muslim world, memorised by thousands young and old and echoed from home to home, still spreading the love and defending the honour of the Beloved Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) 1400 years on.

Here is a beautiful couplet from one of his poems:
"I could not praise RasoolAllah (Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) with my words; rather, my words were made praiseworthy by RasoolAllah (Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam)"

My eyes have not seen anyone more handsome than you.
nor has any women given birth to anyone more beautiful than you.
You have been created free from all faults it is as if you have been created as you desire.
" Hassan Ibn Thabit {Radi'Allahu Anhu} wrote this because of his love for the Messenger of Allah {Sall'Allahu 'Alayhi wa-Sallam}
