Qasida Burda (The Mantle Ode)
Commentary on Imam Busiri’s classical poem in praise of the Most Noble Messenger Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace)
This poem is arguably the most memorized and recited poem in the Muslim world. It discusses the sublime character and exalted rank of the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace). This is the same poem that used to grace the walls of the famous houses of Baghdad and still graces the Prophetic Rawda in Madina Munawwara and Salahuddin’s Tomb in Damascus.
