Reflection of Prophetic teachings in the poetry of Hassan bin Thabet
Hassan bin Thabet was a celebrated companion of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and poet of Islam. Those were the difficult times for the Prophet and his followers. There were all types of onslaughts from multiple directions including economic, social, existential, literary and lingual. Arabs had no match in their lingual and literary developments. Often the Holy Prophet was ridiculed in their poetic and literary utterances using satirical and allegorical dictions. Therefore, they were to be responded through the same poetic and literary form and diction. Hassan bin Thabet stood up with conviction using his bold and strong intellectual poetic capabilities. He not only forcefully defended the Holy Prophet on this front rather fertilized his poetic verses with the true essence of Prophetic teachings and made his literary effort immortalized. Flavour of Islamic teachings is predominantly visible in his works. His contribution in highlighting the message of the Prophet of Allah during those times and thereafter was overarching. In this research paper I have focused upon the life, achievements of Hasan bin Thabet and the environment in which he lived and worked. I have tried to decipher his important selected verses which stood as transmitting tools for transferring Prophet teachings to the successive generations. In the end, I have summarized the sources which have been consulted during this research effort for making it credible piece of research work.
