Abo Nowas was a famous literary man and contemporary poet who lived at the time of Imam Reza (A.S.).

Although he was well-known because of his literature and poets, but, in spite of his all literary competences, he could not be able to eulogize Imam Reza (A.S.). Ibn-e Tolon wrote:" Some followers complained to Abo Nowas and said:" You have already composed some poems about wine, mountains, deserts, music and etc. How does it happen that you could not compose a poem about such important thing i.e. high position of Imam Reza (A.S.) while you are contemporaneous with Imam Reza (A.S.) and know him very well?!?
Abo Nowas replied: "I swear to God that greatness of Imam Reza (A.S.) is the only reason that made me unable to eulogize him! It is impossible to me doing such thing because he is great while I am a man of humble birth…
Then, he composed this poem:
Do not ask me eulogize him further!
I could not able to eulogize a person that Gabriel is a servant of his father!
Also, that is an ode attributed to him when his eyes fell on Imam Reza (A.S.) in Marv:
All Imams are immaculate and pure, whenever mentioning their names; everyone will send them one's regards.
Everyone without connection with the Holy family of Imam Ali (A.S.), indeed, he / she does not deserve of rewards.
Indeed, you (our Imams) are in a high position and the science of the book and also the contents of the Koran's verses are on your guards.
Ibn-e Sabagh Maleki wrote about Imam Reza (A.S.):" Imam Reza (A.S.) has the praiseworthy attributes and his real self is holy and pure, indeed, he is the son of Hashemite Family and the holy prophetical race."
After the matter of the succession to the thrown, one day Abdollah Ibn-e Matraf came to see Mamoun. Imam Reza (A.S.) was there too. The caliph said to Abdollah:" What is your idea about Ali Ib n-e Mousa'Reza (A.S.)?"
He replied:" What I should say about a person who his nature would be made in prophetic mission's mould and has taken root in pleasant revelation?!? This holy nature would ooze nothing save the musk of guidance as well as the ambergris of piety!"
