Hadrat Jabir bin Samura (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that he had hundred occasions to sit in the company of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) when the Companions recited verses and told tales of the Days of Ignorance. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) did not stop them (from doing so). He listened to them silently but sometimes laughed with them. [Shamail-e-Tirmizi]

Amr Bin Ash-Shard reported his father as saying; One day when I was riding behind the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) I recited hundred verses of Umayya bin Abus Salts’ poetry. On every verse I recited, he told me to go on. In the end he told me, ‘He was about to accept Islam.” [Shamail-e-Tirmizi, Mishkat]

Hadrat Aishah (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anha) narrated that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) used to have a special pulpit in the mosque for Hassan Bin Sabit to stand on it and recite couplets in appreciation of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) or answer on his behalf. He also prayed to ALLAH to strengthen him (Hassan bin Sabit) by the spirit of holiness (Gabriel) as long as he served the cause of Islam.[Shamail-e-Tirmizi]
