Answer:     I have heard a Hadith that the uncle of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) recited some couplets before the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) blessed him.  Please gimme the whole Hadith and in which book, it is present?

There are Hadith about this in Imam Hakim's Mustadrak, Imam Tabarani's Mo’jam Kabeer and Allama Haithami's Majma Uz Zawaaid that while returning from the Battle of Tabuk, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), Hadhrat Abbas (May Allah be well pleased with him) asked the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) to permit him to recite some couplets in praise of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  With blessings, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) permitted him.  Then, Hadhrat Abbas (May Allah be well pleased with him) said the couplets.

The Hadith in Imam Hakim's Mustadrak 'Alas Sahihain is being presented here:

Translation:  Hadhrat Khuraim bin Aus bin Haritha bin Lam (May Allah be well pleased with him) says:  When the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was returning from Tabuk, I migrated to Him (Hijrah) and embraced Islam.  I heard Hadhrat Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib (May Allah be well pleased with him) requesting the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) in these words: O Prophet of Allah! I want to praise You.  Then the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: You praise Me, may Allah make your face beautiful.  Among the couplets of Hadhrat Abbas (May Allah be well pleased with him) were that:

When You arrived in this world, the earth became illuminated;
With Your Noor, the horizons became radiant.

(Mo’jam Kabeer, Tabarani, Hadith No: 4057; Mustadrak 'Alas Sahihain, Hadith No: 5426; Majma Uz Zawaaid, Vol. 8, Pg No. 217)

Also, in Mo’jam Kabeer and Majma Uz Zawaaid , the following words are also reported:

we are covering the paths of guidance in the light of this Noor.

And Allah Most High knows best.
