Muslim believer’s heart becomes upbeat with joy upon hearing admirations of their beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alihi Wasallam. There were many poets in history who wrote much on praise of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alihi Wasallam. The list starts at well known companions of Prophet Hassan ibn Thabith and Kaab bin Zuhair (Raliya Allahu Anhuma). Many scholars wrote volumes and volumes of prose and poetry admiring the Prophet of mercy (Sallallahu Alihi Wasallam) whom Allah has called Rahmathu Lilalameen (Mercy for the whole universe).

There is one outstanding poem which is recited through generations after generations in multitude of tunes on many occasions. Ask any common man about a popular poem admiring our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alihi Wasallam. The immediate answer could be ‘Qaseedatul Burdha’. This famous poem also known as ‘Bure al Dae’ or simply as ‘Burdah’ is written by Imam Sharafudhin Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al Busiri (R.A).

Imam Busiri was born in 1st Shawal 608 (hijri – 1212 A.D) in an Egyptian village called ‘Busir’ and passed away in 696 (hijri – 1296 A.D). He is buried in Alexandria, Northern Egyptian city overlooking Mediterranean Sea. His Maqam is in one of the busiest streets in Alexandria often flooded with visitors.

The famous poem ‘Qaseedatul Burdha’ contains 160 rhyme distributed in 10 chapters. This poem is translated to many languages. Burdah is recited in big gatherings of lovers of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alihi Wasallam in many occasions like Prophet’s Birthday, house warming reception and wedding celebration in many part of the world.
