The dearly loved one ...

A fair skinned one by whose face rainclouds are sought,
A caretaker of the orphans and protector for the widows

With him the clan of Hashim seek refuge from calamities,
For they possess in him immense favor and grace 

- Abu Talib 

O pillar of those who rely on upon you,
O immunity of those who seek refuge in you,
And resort of those who seek herbiage and rain,
and neighbouring protector of those in need of shelter!
O you whom God has chosen for His creatures 
by planting in him perfection and purity of charater

- Hassan ibn Thabit
