(6071) Abu Huraira [R.A] reported that ‘Umar [R.A] happened to pass by Hassan [Bin Thabit (R.A.)]as he was reciting verses in the mosque. He (Hadrat Umar) looked towards him (meaningfully), where upon he (Hassan) said: I used to recite (verses) when one better than you (the Holy Prophet) had been present (here). He than looked towards Abu Huraira and said to him: I adjure you by Allah (to tell) if you had not heard Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: (Hassan), give a reply on my behalf; Allah! Help him with Ruh-ul-Qudus. 2787 He (Abu Huraira) said: By Allah, it is so (i.e. the Holy Prophet actually said these words).
