Jabir ibn Samurah (may Allah be pleased with him) says, I attended the assemblies of Messenger of Allah ﷺ more than a hundred times, wherein the Sahaabah (may Allah be pleased with him)m recited poetry and related stories of the Jaahiliyyah (pre-Islamic era). Messenger of Allah ﷺ silently listened to them (and did not forbid them). At times he smiled with them
حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ حُجْرٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا شَرِيكٌ، عَنْ سِمَاكِ بْنِ حَرْبٍ، عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ سَمُرَةَ، قَالَ‏:‏ جَالَسْتُ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم، أَكْثَرَ مِنْ مِائَةِ مَرَّةٍ، وَكَانَ أَصْحَابُهُ يَتَنَاشَدُونَ الشِّعْرَ، وَيَتَذَاكَرُونَ أَشْيَاءَ مِنْ أَمْرِ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ، وَهُوَ سَاكِتٌ وَرُبَّمَا تَبَسَّمَ مَعَهُمْ‏.‏
