Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) relates from Messenger of Allah ﷺ that the best words from among the poets of Arabia is that of Labeed, "Verily be aware, that everything besides the Almighty Allah will perish."
حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ حُجْرٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا شَرِيكٌ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الْمَلِكِ بْنِ عُمَيْرٍ، عَنْ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم، قَالَ‏:‏ أَشْعَرُ كَلِمَةٍ تَكَلَّمَتْ بِهَا الْعَرَبُ كَلِمَةُ لَبِيدٍ‏:‏ أَلا كُلُّ شَيْءٍ مَا خَلا اللَّهَ بَاطِلٌ‏.‏
