Description from the publisher:

The Mantle Adorned is a completely new translation of the Burda (æMantle PoemÆ) of Imam Sharaf al-Din al-Busiri (d.1297). Abdal Hakim Murad has consulted the classical commentaries to produce this clear and careful English version. Features hardcover textured binding, full color pages, and more.

The translation includes a foreword by Professor Recep Sent?rk of the Centre for Islamic Studies (ISAM), Istanbul.________________________________________Murad has added to each verse a further verse of poetry by another poet, which expresses a similar sentiment of love for the Blessed Prophet. The book therefore serves as the best collection currently available in English of poems in praise of the Seal of the Messengers, may Allah bless him and give him peace. Poets represented include Rumi, Attar, Ibn Hazm, Nanotvi, Yahya Parkinson, Rilke, and many more.________________________________________Busiri (Abu 'Abdallah Muhammad ibn Sa'id ul-Busiri) (1211û1294) was an Egyptian poet who wrote under the patronage of Ibn Hinna, the vizier. The most famous of his poems is the present work "Poem of the Mantle". It is entirely in praise of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, who cured the poet of paralysis by appearing to him in a dream and wrapping him in a mantle. The poem is considered sacred, even in the poet's lifetime. Up to the present time its verses are used as amulets; recited at births and other joyous occasions; it has been frequently edited and made the basis for other poems.________________________________________About the TranslatorAbdal Hakim Murad was born in London in 1960. He is the author of several translations from Arabic, including volumes of the classic Revival of the Religious Sciences by Imam al-Ghazali.
