al-Burda – or the Mantle Ode – is a classical Arab qasida praising the prophet Muhammad. It is part of the Arab-Islamic poetic canon and it is attributed a broad array of religious and cultural meanings. Since it came into being in the thirteenth century, it has been the subject of countless uses: poetic, musical, religious and political.
