Qasdat al-Burda (Arabic: , "Poem of the Mantle"), or al-Burda for short, is an ode of praise for the Islamic prophet Muhammad composed by the eminent
Sufi mystic Imam al-Busiri of Egypt. The poem whose actual title is al-Kawkib ad-Durrya f Mad Khayr al-Barya ( ,
"The Celestial Lights in Praise of the Best of Creation"), is famous mainly in the Sunni Muslim world. It is entirely in praise of Muhammad, who is said to have
cured the poet of paralysis by appearing to him in a dream and wrapping him in a mantle or cloak.Bnat Sud, a poem composed by Ka'b bin Zuhayr was
originally called as Al-Burdah. He recited this poem in front of Muhammad after embracing Islam. Muhammad was so moved that he removed his mantle and wrapped it
over him. The original Burdah is not as famous as the one composed by Imam al-Busiri even though Muhammad had physically wrapped his mantle over Ka'b not in a
dream like in case of Imam al-Busiri.
