Hadis Hassan bin Thabit r.a:
Diriwayatkan daripada Said bin Musayyib katanya: Ketika Umar berjalan di dalam masjid, Hassan sedang mengalunkan syair. Beliau berkata (Hassan): Aku bersyair di dalamnya (masjid) dan di dalamnya terdapat orang yang lebih baik darimu (Rasulullah s.a.w), kemudian beliau berpaling ke arah Abu Hurairah dan berkata: Demi Allah, adakah kamu pernah mendengar Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda: Peliharalah aku. Ya Allah, kuatkanlah beliau dengan Rohulqudus. Abu Hurairah menjawab: Ya.

Hassan bin Thabit's Hadith, may Allah be pleased with him.
Sa'id bin Al-Musaiyib reported that 'Umar happened to pass by Hassan as he was reciting verses in the mosque. He ('Umar) looked towards him (meaningfully), whereupon he (Hassan) said: I used to recite (poetry in this very mosque) in the presence of one who was better than you (the Holy Prophet) (may peace be upon him). He then looked towards Abu Hurairah and said to him: I adjure you by Allah to tell me if you had heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: (Hassan), give a reply on my behalf; Allah! help him with Ruh Al-Qudus. He (Abu Hurairah) said: By Allah, it is so (i.e. the Holy Prophet actually said these words). Hadith number in Sahih Muslim [Arabic only]: 4539
