English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, “The most truthful statement a poet has ever made is the saying of Labid: Everything besides Allah is vain.”
[Al-Bukhari Book 05, Chapter 58, Hadith # 181]
Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 88. “Invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah” 1. We learn from this Hadith that to compose, recite and quote good verses, as evidence, is permissible. 2. The Verse of Labid, quoted in this Hadith, is the same effect as the verdict of the Noble Qur’an: “Whatsoever is on (the earth) will perish.” (55:26). This Verse accepts the eternity of the Afterlife and the transitory nature of this world.
