Hassan ibn Thabit was a great and a known Arab poet. He was hired by the Quraish leadership of Makkah to prepare a masterpiece to spread propaganda against the Last Messenger of God, Muhammad (peace be upon him).
Hassan thought that he should go and see this men in order to write his poem. When he saw the face of Prophet Muhammad, he accepted Islam, went back returned the money & wrote a poem (below) about the physical characteristics of Prophet Muhammad. After that he became the official poet of the Prophet and became the defender of the Prophet and of Islam against the propaganda by the people of Quraish.
My friend wrote this short but deep poem about the beauty of Religion. If you like it, please share it and leave a comment.
By Izzedine Boozid
My faith; the essence of my being,
Marvelous emotion churning in ones soul,
Close companions a sweet fragrance,
Ones in the distance like coal,
Theology the mother of purpose,
Giving birth to ambition,
We know a lot about Mongols.
Muslims see it as the dark chapter in their history- destruction of Baghdad, destruction of the libraries and Muslim civilization, destruction of Samarkand, Basra, and many other great cities of Persia and present day Afghanistan. Never ending hordes of horses. Barbaric warriors that would not stop for rest and meal and when thirsty would stab a horse and drink its blood. Inhuman humans, who would butcher even women and children and then would compete with skull mountains!
Europeans see Mongols as a powerful force that knocked at the door steps of Europe. A military power that took over Eastern European states. A power that could not be defeated.
