Sahih Muslim Book 028, Hadith Number 5611.

Chapter : Not known.

Abd 'Sa'id Khudri reported: We were going with Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him). As we reached the place (known as) 'Arj there met (us) a poet who had been reciting a poem. Thereupon Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Catch the satan or detain the satan, for filling the belly of a person with pus is better than stuffing his brain with poetry.
