Qasida Burda (The Mantle Ode) Part 34

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.

The following couplets are covered in this video:

– “Mountains were they! Ask those who collided with them what they saw in them on every field of honour”

– “Ask Huneyn, Ask Badr, Ask Uhud. Fateful seasons, against evil worse than the plague”

– “White swords shone red after their encounter with the black heads of the foemen”

– “Like scribes whose pens, tracing with brown ink, left no body devoid of points and vowels”
