Someone enquired from Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her):
Did Messenger of Allah ﷺ recite poetry? She replied, He sometimes as an example recited the poetry of Abdullah ibn Rawahah (and sometimes of other poets). He sometimes recited this couplet of Tarfah: "Sometimes that person brings news to you whom you have not compensated."
حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ حُجْرٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا شَرِيكٌ، عَنِ الْمِقْدَامِ بْنِ شُرَيْحٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ‏:‏ قِيلَ لَهَا‏:‏ هَلْ كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم، يَتَمَثَّلُ بِشَيْءٍ مِنَ الشِّعْرِ‏؟‏ قَالَتْ‏:‏ كَانَ يَتَمَثَّلُ بِشِعْرِ ابْنِ رَوَاحَةَ، وَيَتَمَثَّلُ بِقَوْلِهِ‏:‏ يَأْتِيكَ بِالأَخْبَارِ مَنْ لَمْ تُزَوَّدِ‏.‏
