After the past successes, ‘Selawat ke atas Rasulullah SAW’ is back for its 4th installment insyaAllah! This time round, the emphasis will be on the famous Qasidah Burdah of Imam al-Busairi and also on the youth.
The Burdah has been recited for hundreds of years, in all kinds of occasions, and in many different melodies. You might have heard it before without realizing that you were listening to the Qasidah Burdah even! The popular track ‘Burdah’ by Mesut Kurtis would give you an idea as to how the Burdah is sung.
This particular session will be held in English & Malay by Ustaz Mohamad Hasbi & also Ustaz Sofyan Yadi (aka “Singer Ustaz”). They will be talking about the history of the Qasidah Burdah and the rewards of reciting it.
As always, there will be many nasyeed performances and Syamil, Perkemas (students of Al-Azhar University) and Shoutul Madeeh (alumni of Madrasah Aljunied) will all be performing insyaAllah.
Watch this video for an introduction to the Qasidah Burdah:
