Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) love for Poetry

The book Shamaa'ile Tirmizi,in which Imam Tirmizi has recorded everything about the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) on the authority of the Sahaba-e-Karaam R.A.(Companions of Prophet SAW),and collected 397 ahadis which are divided into 55 Chapters. Drawing A pen picture of the Holy Prophet's (S.A.W) physical features, manners and characteristics has the following beautiful hadis which shows the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) love for poetry:

Hazrat Aisha Siddiqa (R.A.) has related that holy prophet(S.A.W.) used to have a special pulpit in the mosque for Hazrat Hassan Bin Sabit(R.A.) to stand on it and recite couplets in the appreciations of Holy Prophet(S.A.W.).
Huzur (S.A.W.) also prayed to Allah to strengthen Hazrat Hisham Bin Sabit (R.A.) by the spirit of Hazrat Jibreel (A.S.) as long as he served the cause of Islam
It would have been a spectacular sight, The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) is seated on his mimber, all The Ashaba-e-Karaam (R.A.) present and Hazrat Hisham Bin Sabit reciting the couplets in praise of Holy Prophet(S.A.W.),lets say he recited his most famous lines:

Wa ahsanu minka lam tara qattu eynun,
Wa ajmalu minka lam talidi'n nisaau,
Khuliqta mubarraan min kulli`aybin,
Ka annaka qad khalaqta kamaa tashaau.>

The English translation of the above lines will be following:
No eye has set upon anybody handsome & fairer as you
No woman has given birth to anyone as beautiful as you
You were created free from all flaws,
As if you were created as you wish to be.

The literal Urdu translation will be:
Ya Rasool-Allah(S.A.W.)aaj tak kisi bhi aankh ne aap jaisa haseen-o-jameel nahin dekha,
Aur aap ke jaisa haseen aaj tak kise maan ne nahin janaa hai,
Aap ko tamaam aibon se paak kar ke qhalk kiye gai hain,
Aur mujhe to yun lagta hai ki aap jaise paida hona chaahte the waise hi paida hue hain.

In the same Shama'ile Tirmizi Hazrat Amir bin Ash-Sharid reported his father saying:
One day when I was riding behind the Holy Prophet(S.A.W.),I recited hundred verses from Ummayya bin Abus Salt's poetry. On every verse I recited he told me to go on. In the end He told me” He was about to accept Islam."

In another hadis of Shamaa'il Hazrat Jabir Bin Samurah (R.A.) has narrated that:
He had hundreds occasions to sit in the company of Holy Prophet(S.A.W.)when the Companions(R.A.) recited verses and told tales of the Days of Ignorance(Daura-e-jahiliya).The Holy prophet(S.A.W.) did not stop them. he listened to them silently but some times laughed with them.

    ‘Holy Quran’ and ‘Holy Prophet’ in Islam

    In Christianity, there are terms such as Holy Father, Holy Son, Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost and Holy Bible. Muslims do not have anything in Islam called as The Holy Quran and The Holy Prophet. Yet, the term Holy Quran and Holy Prophet is commonly and widely used. We have to use the right words to describe The Quran and Prophet Muhammad SAW according to The Quran itself and Hadith.

    Earlier in The Glorious Quran, Allah SWT says:

    The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Quran, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong). [Al-Quran 2:185]

    ‘Holy’ in Arabic means ‘muqaddas’ (مقدس). There is no verse in The Noble Quran or in Hadith that says ‘Al-Quranum-Muqaddas’ (The Holy Quran) and ‘Ar-Rasulan-Nabiyyam-Muqaddas’ (The Messenger, The Holy Prophet). Allah SWT shortly describes The Quran as:

    ‘Quranun-Karim’ (Noble Quran) [Al-Quran 56:77]

    ‘Al-Quranil-Majid’ (The Glorious Quran) [Al-Quran 50:1]

    ‘Al-Qurani-zi-Zikr’ (The Quran Full of Reminder) [Al-Quran 38:1]

    ‘Quranun-Mubin’ (Clear Quran) [Al-Quran 36:69]

    ‘Al-Quranil-Hakim’ (The Wise Quran) [Al-Quran 36:2]

    ‘Al-Quranal-‘Adzim’ (The Great Quran) [Al-Quran 15:87]

    Surah (Chapter) 47, titled Muhammad, second verse is translated as:

    And those who believe and do righteous deeds and believe in what has been sent down upon Muhammad - and it is the truth from their Lord - He will remove from them their misdeeds and amend their condition. [Al-Quran 47:2]

    Short description of Prophet Muhammad SAW in The Noble Quran:

    ‘Ar-Rasulan-Nabiyyal-Umiyya’ (The Messenger, The Unlettered Prophet) [Al-Quran 7:157]

    ‘Khataman-Nabiyyina’ (Seal of The Prophets) [Al-Quran 33:40]

    ‘Ahmad’ (Highly Praised) [Al-Quran 61:6]

    ‘hakim’ (Judge) [Al-Quran 4:65, 24:51]

    ‘rasulin-karim’ (Noble Messenger) [Al-Quran 69:40]

    ‘raufur-rahim’ (Kind and Merciful) [Al-Quran 9:128]

    ‘Muhammadur-Rasulullah’ (Muhammad, The Messenger of Allah) [Al-Quran 48:29]

    ‘Abdullah’ (Slave of Allah) [Al-Quran 72:19]

    ‘muzakkirun’ (Reminder) [Al-Quran 88:21]

    ‘sirajan-muniran’ (Illuminating Lamp) [Al-Quran 33:46]

    ‘nazirun-mubin’ (Clear Warner) [Al-Quran 7:184]

    ‘basharun’ (Man) [Al-Quran 18:110]

    ‘rahmatal-lil’alamin’ (Mercy for all the worlds) [Al-Quran 21:107]

    ‘shahidan wa mubashiran wa naziran’ (Witness, Bearer of Glad Tidings and Warner) [Al-Quran 33:45]

    ‘nurun’ (Light) [Al-Quran 5:15]

    ‘burhanun’ (Convincing Proof) [Al-Quran 4:174]

    ‘uswatun hasanatun’ (Good Example) [Al-Quran 33:21]

    So if someone ask what is the holy book of a Muslim? Say it is The Noble Quran. This makes Al-Quran stands up in its own position. We do not have the authority to name it, call it or give it the title 'The Holy Quran' since Allah SWT and Prophet Muhammad SAW never used that term either.

    Please share with fellow Brothers and Sisters. May Allah SWT grant us understanding and guide us all. Amin Ya Rabbal ‘Alamin.

    Wallahu ‘Alam (Allah SWT Knows Best)
