al Kawakib al Durriyah fi Madh Khair al Bariyyah, better known as Qasidah al Burdah (“poem of the mantle”) is a blessed poem composed by Imam al Busiri (696H).
The Imam suffered paralysis and went through much difficulty. He composed this poem and supplicated to Allah. At night, he saw the Prophet صلي الله عليه وسلم in his dream. The noble Messenger of Allah صلي الله عليه وسلم passed his hand over his head and placed a mantle over him. In the morning, Imam al Busiri woke up and found himself to be cured from his paralysis.
The poem has garnered much acclaim and is regarded to be one of, if not the best poem in praise of the Prophet صلي الله عليه وسلم
