  • Note:
    Hassan ibn Thabit (died 674) was an Arabian poet and one of the Sahaba, or companions of Muhammad. He was born in Yathrib (Medina), and was member of the Banu Khazraj tribe. According to tradition, he was the court poet to Muhammad.

    According to Islamic tradition Hassan lived for 120 years, sixty years before converting to Islam and another sixty thereafter.[1] In his youth he traveled to Al-Hirah and Damascus, then settled in Medina, where, after the arrival of Muhammad, he accepted Islam and wrote poems in his defense. This was regarded as an example of early Muslims using their pagan talents to advance their new faith.[1]

    Muhammad gave Hassan his slave Sirin, the sister of Muhammad's wife Maria al-Qibtiyya. The sisters were Egyptian Coptic Christians sent as gifts to Muhammad by Muqawqis, a ruler of Egypt, in around 628. Sirin bore Hassan a son, 'Abd al-Rahman ibn Hassan.[2] After Muhammad's death Hassan was supposed to have traveled east as far as China, preaching for Islam along with Sa'd ibn abi Waqqas, Thabit ibn Qays, and Uwais al-Qarni.
