Hassan ibn Thabit

Hassan ibn Thabit (Arabic: حسان بن ثابت ) (died 674) was an Arabian poet and one of the Sahaba, or companions of Muhammad. He was born in Yathrib (Medina), and was member of the Banu Khazraj tribe. After Mohammad's death, Hassan was supposed to have traveled east as far as China, preaching for Islam along with Sa`d ibn Abi Waqqas, Thabit ibn Qays, and Uwais al-Qarni.
