Now, without you, I have become lonely in my thirst.

He was the light and the brilliance we followed,
He was sight and hearing second only to Allah,
By Allah, no woman has conceived and given birth
To one like the Messenger, the Prophet and Guide of
His people.

Nor Has Allah created among His creatures,
One more faithful to His sojourner or His promise
than he who was the source of our light.
Blessed in his deeds, just and upright,
O best of mankind, It was though I were in a river,
But now, without you, I have become lonely in my thirst.

Sayyiduna Hassan ibn Thabit (radi Allahu ‘anhu) recited the above poem, on the passing of Prophet Muhammad (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

 

I bore it until I could bear it no longer…

10370

When I saw his light shining forth,
In fear I covered my eyes with my palms,
Afraid for my sight because of the beauty of his form.
So I was scarcely able to look at him at all.
The lights from his light are drowned in his light
and his faces shines out like the sun and moon in one.
A spirit of light lodged in a body like the moon,
a mantle made up of brilliant shining stars.
I bore it until I could bear it no longer.
I found the taste of patience to be like bitter aloes.
I could find no remedy to bring me relief
other than delighting in the sight of the one I love.
Even if he had not brought any clear signs with him,
the sight of him would dispense with the need for them.
Muhammad is a human being but not like other human beings.
Rather he is a flawless diamond and the rest of mankind is just stones.
Blessings be on him so that perhaps Allah may have mercy on us
on that burning Day when the Fire is roaring forth its sparks.

– Hazrat Hassan bin Thabit rahimahu Llah –

Talking of beauty, you are the one that comes to the mind
For there’s not been a single soul more pleasant than you are
You are cleansed of all imperfection
You are one of a kind in all creation

One of the first and oldest words of poetry to praise Prophet (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) by the Poet of the Prophet (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) Hazrat Hassan bin Thabit al-Ansari radi Allahu ‘anhu.

Poetry by Hassan ibn Thabit radi Allahu ‘anhu

5458

Some examples are given of the beautiful and melodious poetry from the greatest religious poet; Hassan Ibn Thabit (radi Allahu ‘anhu). These words have been translated from Arabic and as in all attempted translations, meaning and often the actual beauty can be lost. However these words do help us to understand the love of the Companions for our Prophet (peace & blessings upon him):

When I saw his light shining forth,
In fear I covered my eyes with my palms,
Afraid for my sight because of the beauty of his form.
So I was scarcely able to look at him at all.
The lights from his light are drowned in his light
and his faces shines out like the sun and moon in one.
A spirit of light lodged in a body like the moon,
a mantle made up of brilliant shining stars.
I bore it until I could bear it no longer.
I found the taste of patience to be like bitter aloes.
I could find no remedy to bring me relief
other than delighting in the sight of the one I love.
Even if he had not brought any clear signs with him,
the sight of him would dispense with the need for them.
Muhammad is a human being but not like other human beings.
Rather he is a flawless diamond and the rest of mankind is just stones.

Blessings be on him so that perhaps Allah may have mercy on us on that burning Day when the Fire is roaring forth its sparks.

All drinks must be sacrificed!

اذا مالاشربات ذکرن یومًا
فھن لطیب الراح الفداءٗ

— Hassān bin Thābit (raḍī Allāh ʿanhu), the great poet –

When RasoolAllah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam had passed away the following Na’ats were recited

4469

When RasoolAllah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam had passed away the following Na’ats were recited. Imam Ibn Sa’ad writes, Hassaan Bin Thaabit radi Allahu ‘anhu recited:

“Who can compare to the one who was Nûr, the one from whom light was extracted. There were blessings in his commands and he was our Guide and Warner. He was such a Nûr that his light shone upon the whole of the creation. The person who has shown us the path of this blessed (Nûr) attained success. He was the light, he was the Nûr. It is his footsteps that we follow, and after Allah, he was our ears and eyes.’
