The Burdah of Imam al-Busiri


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.

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.
