Extracts of Qasida Burda (Arabic) Lyrics

Mawlaya salla wa sallim da’iman abadan
Ala Habibika khayri al-khalqi kullihimi

Da’a ila Allahi, fa al-mustamsikuna bihi
Mustamsikuna bi hablin ghayra munfasimi
Muhammadun sayyid al-kawnayni wa ath-thaqalayn
Wa’l fariqayni min ‘urbin wa min ‘ajami

Faqa an-nabiyyina fi khalin wa fi khuluqin
Wa lam yudanuhu fi ‘ilmin wa la karami
Huwa al-habib alladhi turja shafa’atahu
Likulli hawlin min al-ahwali muqtahimi

Fa mablagha al-‘ilmi annahu basharun
Wa annahu khayru khalqi Allahi kullihimi
Akrim bi-khalqi nabiyyin za nahu khuluqun
Bil-husni mushtamilin bil-bishri muttasimi

Ka az-zahri fi tarafin, wa al-badri fi sharafin
Wa al-bahri fi karamin wa ad-dahri fi himami

Sarayta min haramin laylan ila haramin
Kama sara al-badru fi dajin min ath-thulami
Wa bitta tarqa ila an-nilta manzilatan
Min qqabi qawsayni lam tudrak wa lam turami

Fa inna fadhla rasulillahi laysa lahu
Haddun fa yu’ribu ‘anhu natiqun bi fami
Ka annama lu’lu al-maqnuni fi sadafin
Min ma’danay mantiqin minhu wa mubtasami

    Qasidat al-Burda is an ode of praise for the Islamic prophet Muhammad(S.A.W) composed by the eminent Sufi, Imam al-Busiri of Egypt. The poem, ("Celestial Lights in Praise of the Best of Creation"), is famous mainly in the Sunni Muslim world. It is entirely in praise of Muhammad (S.A.W), who cured the poet of paralysis by appearing to him in a dream and wrapping him in a mantle or scarf.


    Al-Busiri narrated the miraculous circumstances of his inspiration to write the Burdah:

    I had composed a number of praise poems for the Prophet, including one that was suggested to me by my friend Zayn al-Din Y?aqub b. al-Zubayr. Some time after that, I was stricken by falij (stroke), an illness that paralyzed half of my body. I thought that I would compose this poem, and so I made supplications to the Prophet Mu?ammad to intercede for me and (and ask God to) cure me. I repeatedly sang the poem, wept, prayed, and asked for intercession. Then I slept and in my dream, I saw the Prophet. He wiped my face with his blessed hands and covered me in his cloak (burdah). Then I woke up and found I was able to walk; so I got up and left my house. I had told no one about what had happened.

    I encountered a Sufi (faqir) on my way and he said to me: “I want you to give me the poem in which you praise the Prophet.”

    I said: “Which one?”

    So he said: ”The one that you composed during your sickness.”

    Then he recited the first verse and said: “I swear by God that I heard it in a dream last night being sung in the presence of the Prophet Mu?ammad. I saw the Prophet was pleased with it and covered the person who sang it with his cloak.”

    So I recited the poem to him and he memorized it and related his vision to others.

    The Burda is divided into 10 chapters and 160 verses. Interspersing the verses is the refrain, "My Master, descend peace and blessings continuously and eternally on Your Beloved, the Best of All Creation" . Each verse ends with the Arabic letter mim, a style called mimiya.
