Instantly recognised anywhere in the world by its epithet, the Burdah is a timeless tribute to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which although penned in the twelfth century, still resonates deeply due to the affinity generated by the authors spiritual journey.

If people only knew about the value of the Qasidah Burdah, they would write it on the pupils of their eyes with gold ink.
The Burdah of Imam al-Busiri has been meticulously composed to aid studying, memorising, and singing of perhaps the single most important poem in the world. Each chapter depicts the ode’s original Arabic form along with the English translation, which is complimented with a concise commentary that explores the ode’s spirit. It is a must have book for those that wish to envisage, experience, and draw inspiration from Imam al-Busiri’s euphoric journey.
the celestial lights that descend by association with the Burdah of Imam al-Busiri: The poem that generated a miracle, which then fashioned a timeless relic.
The poem begins with Imam al-Busiri’s struggle against his ego, as he showcases the hallmarks of true Muhammadan love. Through praising the Prophet ﷺ , narrating events and miracles from the Prophet’s ﷺ life, as well as lauding the majesty of the Holy Qur’an, the ode culminates with Imam al-Busiri’s miraculous rehabilitation, as he petitions the Prophet ﷺ. All of which takes place with the Imam turning back to Allah ﷻ during a reconciliation with his faith, and a noetic realisation about the reality of the world.
