Salim narrated that his father said:

“Sometimes I remember the words of the poet when I was looking at the face of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) on the pulpit. He did not come down until all the waterspouts in Al-Madinah were filled with rain. And I remember what the poet said: ‘He has a white complexion and rain is sought by virtue of his countenance, He cares for the orphans, and protects the widows, These are the words of Abu Talib.”

حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ الأَزْهَرِ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو النَّضْرِ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عَقِيلٍ، عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ حَمْزَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا سَالِمٌ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ رُبَّمَا ذَكَرْتُ قَوْلَ الشَّاعِرِ وَأَنَا أَنْظُرُ، إِلَى وَجْهِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ عَلَى الْمِنْبَرِ فَمَا نَزَلَ حَتَّى جَيَّشَ كُلُّ مِيزَابٍ بِالْمَدِينَةِ فَأَذْكُرُ قَوْلَ الشَّاعِرِ وَأَبْيَضَ يُسْتَسْقَى الْغَمَامُ بِوَجْهِهِ ثِمَالُ الْيَتَامَى عِصْمَةٌ لِلأَرَامِلِ وَهُوَ قَوْلُ أَبِي طَالِبٍ ‏.‏
