Qasidah Burdah Lyrics


Chorus:
مَوْلايَ صَلِّ وَسَلِّـمْ دَائِمـاً أَبـَـدًا
عَلى حَبِيْبِـكَ خَيْــرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِـمِ

مُحَمَّدٌ سَـيِّدُ الْكَــوْنَيْنِ وَالثَّقَلَـيْنِ
وَالْفَرِيْقَـيْنِ مِنْ عُـرْبٍ وَّمِنْ عَجَـمِ
Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) is the leader of both worlds and both creations. And both groups, Arabs and Non-Arabs

Chorus

نَبِيُّنَـا الآمِرُ النَّــاهِيْ فَلاَ أَحَــدٌ
أبَـرُّ فِيْ قَــوْلِ لاَ مِنْـهُ وَلاَ نَعَـمِ
Our Nabi (صلى الله عليه وسلم) is the one who commands (good and), forbids (evil). There is none (parallel to him) more truthful than him
(صلى الله عليه وسلم) in saying “No” or “Yes”

Chorus

هُوَ الْحَبِيْبُ الَّــذِيْ تُرْجٰى شَـفَاعَتُهُ
لِكُــلِّ هَوْلٍ مِّنَ الأَهْـوَالِ مُقْتَحَمِ
He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) is the most beloved, whose intercession is hoped for. For every fear (and distress) that is going to come (on the day) of agony (and fears)

Chorus

دَعَـا اِلىٰ اللهِ فَالْمُسْـتَمْسِـكُوْنَ بِـهِ
مُسْتَمْسِـكُوْنَ بِحَبْـلٍ غَيْرِ مُنْفَصِـمِ
He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) called (the people) towards Allah, so those who cling to him (صلى الله عليه وسلم) are clinging to a rope which will never snap.

Chorus

فَــاقَ النَّبِيِّيْنَ فِيْ خَلْـقٍ وَفِيْ خُلُـقٍ
وَلَمْ يُـدَانُوهُ فِيْ عِلْــمٍ وَّلاَ كَـرَمِ
He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) transcends the Prophets (عليهم السلام) physically and in (noble) character. And they (the Prophets) cannot come near him (صلى الله عليه وسلم) in knowledge and nobility

Chorus

وَكُــلُّهُمْ مِّنْ رَّسُـوْلِ اللهِ مُلْتَمِـسٌ
غَرْفَا مِّنَ الْبَحْرِ أَوْ رَشْفاً مِّنَ الدِّيَـمِ
And all of them (the prophetsعليهم السلام ) obtained from Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم). (Like a) handful (of water) from the ocean or (a few) sips from continuous rains.

Chorus

وَوَاقِفُـوْنَ لَدَيـْـهِ عنْـدَ حَدِّهِــمِ
مِنْ نُّقْطَةِ الْعلْمِ أَوْ مِنْ شَكْلَةِ الْحِكَـمِ
And they (prophets عليهم السلام) all stopped before him (صلى الله عليه وسلم) at their (assigned) limits; (either) at a point of knowledge or to gain a wisdom from (his) wisdom.

Chorus

فَهْوَ الَّـِذيْ تَمَّ مَعْنَــاهُ وَصُوْرَتُهُ
ثُمَّ اصْطَفَـاهُ حَبِيْباًم بَارِيءُ النَّسَــمِ
For he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) is the one with whom, ended all outward and inward perfection. And The Creator of all creation chose him
(صلى الله عليه وسلم) as (His) most beloved.

Chorus
