In Defence of al-Busiri's Ode al-Burdah
For centuries, the Qasidah al-Burdah of Imam al-Busiri has been one of the most popular odes eulogising and praising the Prophetﷺ. In recent times, however, there have been grave accusations against the poem, with claims that some of its lines contain polytheism (shirk) and disbelief (kufr). This treatise is a thorough scholarly response to such charges against the Burdah.
