It was narrated from Umm-ul Momineen Sayyidah Aaishah Siddiqua (رضي الله عنها) that she recited this line of poetry when Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddique (رضي الله عنه) was dying:
A white one, by virtue of whose face the rain (mercy) is sought, a refuge for orphans and protection for widows.
Abu Bakr Siddique (رضي الله عنه) said: By Allah, that refers to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ.
[Musnad, Ahmad, vol.1 pg.42 #26]
Note: This poem was actually recited by Hazrat Abu Talib (Alaihis Salaam) honouring his beloved nephew, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ when he was 2 years old. This verses of Hazrat Abu Talib has been recorded by Imam Bukhari in his Sahih, vol.1, pg.342 #963.
When anyone from among us is dying we recite to them the kalimah (shahada). But see the faith of the blessed companions of Holy prophet ﷺ, may this ummah be sacrificed on the aqeedah of Aaishah Siddiqua, she is reciting the verses of Hazrat Abu Talib to her dying father, the Caliph of Rasulullah ﷺ.
Who does that?…., None, but the Lovers. Listening to the verses of Hazrat Abu Talib was their only pleasure, Sahaba knew how much the Messenger of Allah ﷺ loved this lines and everytime it was mentioned in his blessed presence He ﷺ would smile in happiness and would bless his beloved uncle Abu Talib for composing this poem.
How many of you would prefer to recite the verses of Abu Talib (like Sayyidah Aaishah) to your dying one instead of reminding them the Shahada ?

Aaye Haye Haye Haye 🙌🏼
Below is The Arabic Text of The Verse Recited By Amm e Rasool Sayyiduna Abu Talib (Alaihis Salaam)
سیدی و عم الرسول ابو طالب علیه السلام کا ایک نعتیہ شعر:
وَأَبْيَضَ يُسْتَسْقَى الْغَمَامُ بِوَجْهِهِ ثِمَالَ الْيَتَامَى عِصْمَةً لِلأَرَامِلِ
وہ نورانی چہرہ جس کے وسیلے سے بارش طلب کی جاتی ہے
وہ یتیموں کا فریادرس اور بیواؤں کی پناہ گاہ ہے
