Creation of Qasidat Al Burdah

Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) was the prophet and the founder of Islam in 11 A. H. It is quoted that Kaa’b Ibn Zahir the Arab poet after converting to Islam wrote a poem the name of which was Al Burdah. Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) was greatly surprised and as a token of love removed his cloak and gave it to the poet. Seven centuries later, Abu Abdullah Muhammad Ibn Saeed Bin Hamad Al Senhaji Al Busiri (Egyptian jurist, inscriber, teacher of Quran, mathematician and poet in seventh century A.H.) wrote a poem in praise of the character, qualities and life style of the Holy Prophet called Qasidat Al Burdah. The name of this poem in that time was “al-Kawākib ad-durriyya fī Mad Khayr al-Bariyya”. Al Busiri got partially paralyzed years later and saw the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) in his dream. His Highness covered the poet with his cloak, he was cured. Al Busiri always repeated this poem in every state. One day he read the poem for a spiritual wanderer and the latter transmitted it from mouth to mouth. Qasidat Al Burdah (in 10 chapters and 165 verses) is the most famous eulogy in praise of the Holy Prophet of Islam is Sunnite world which is frequently recited, read, written and translated into different languages and used in ceremonies and occasions.
