Ash-Sharid said, "The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, rode with me behind him and said, "Do you know any of the poetry of Umayya ibn Abi's-Salt?' 'Yes,' I replied and recited a line. 'Go on,' he said, until I had recited a hundred lines."

حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللهِ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ مَيْسَرَةَ، عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ الشَّرِيدِ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ قَالَ‏:‏ أَرْدَفَنِي النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ‏:‏ هَلْ مَعَكَ مِنْ شِعْرِ أُمَيَّةَ بْنِ أَبِي الصَّلْتِ‏؟‏ قُلْتُ‏:‏ نَعَمْ‏.‏ فَأَنْشَدْتُهُ بَيْتًا، فَقَالَ‏:‏ هِيهِ، حَتَّى أَنْشَدْتُهُ مِئَةَ بَيْتٍ‏.‏
