[Must Read] SHIRK In “Qasidah Burdah”

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ


“And invoke not besides Allah, any that will neither profit you, nor hurt you, but if (in case) you did so, you shall certainly be one of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers).” 10:106

SHIRK In“Qasidah Burdah”


Arabic poem called “Qasidah Burdah” by the Sufi Muhammad Al-Busairi has been widespread as gauge for loving the Messenger of Allaah(sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). This poem contain major polytheism i.e. Ash-Shirkul-Al-Akbar, as the author have displayed his extreme exaggeration in rising Allaah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to the status of a deity, committing the same crime which the Jews and Christians committed with Issa and Uzair (alayhissallam).

Despite Salafi scholar’s strongly refuting busairi’s qasidah for its falsehood and strictly warning common people against this misguidance, Sufis worldwide including Deobandis and Barailwee continue to adhere this poem.

I would briefly like to presents few lines from this poem along with comments of Shaykh Muhammed Jameel Zeeno [rahimahullaah] which will enable our readers to understand the severity of this matter and they may take caution from such dangerous beliefs which nullify ones Islam.

يا أكرم الخلق ما لي من ألوذ به * * * سواك عند حلول الحادث العمم

Most generous of mankind, I have no one to take refuge in;
Except you at occurrence of widespread calamity.

Shaykh Zeeno [rahimahullaah] said : The poet Busairi is calling and seeking the help and aid of the Messenger of Allaah(sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).. This [ statement : I have no one to take refuge in; Except you at occurrence of widespread calamity] is classified as being Major Polytheism (Ash-Shirkul-Al-Akbar), which regulates the violator to remain and be destined to the Hell-Fire for eternity if he does not repent from it; hence the statement of Allaah :


“And invoke not besides Allah, any that will neither profit you, nor hurt you, but if (in case) you did so, you shall certainly be one of the Zalimun.” (Surah Yunus: Ayah no: 106)

The word Zalimun [in the ayah] means : the polytheists and wrongdoers because associating partners with Allaah in worship is a great Zulm : wrong. The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said : “Anyone who dies invoking others along with Allaah will definitely enter the Fire.” [Saheeh Bukhari]

فإن من جودك الدنيا وضرتها
For verily amongst your bounties is this world, and the hereafter.

Shaykh [rahimahullaah] said : This is denial of the Qur’an in which Allaah has stated : ‘And truly, unto us belong the Last [Hereafter] and the first [this world].’ (Surah Al-Lail Ayah no.13)

Therefore this world and the hereafter are both from Allaah and from amongst His creation. It is not from amongst the bounties and generosity of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and it is not that he (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) created them so that they are from amongst his creation.

ومن علومك علم اللوح والقلم
And part of your knowledge is knowledge of the Preserved Tablet (Al-Lawh Al-Mahfuud), and the Pen.

Shaykh [rahimahullaah] said : The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), did not know anything that is part of the [Al-Lawh Al-Mahfuud] Preserved Tablet, because nobody has any knowledge of it except Allaah, Alone. This is in reality an overstated praise and exaggeration directed at the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) as far as to deem and believe that this world and the hereafter are from amongst the bounties and generosity of the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). Furthermore, the poem attributes that he (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) knows the knowledge of the unseen that is in the Preserved Tablet, and that whatever is in the [Al-Lawh Al-Mahfuud]Preserved Tablet is from amongst the knowledge of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). This exaggeration has been warned against by the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and he forbade us from exaggerating and over praising him, as he (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said : “Do not praise me excessively as the Christians did to Isaa the son of Maryam; verily, I am only a slave, so call me instead the slave of Allah and His Messenger.” [Saheeh Bukhari] Source : Majmu’ah Rasaail at-Tawjeehaat al-Islaamiyyah li-Islaahil-fard wal-Mujtama by Shaykh Jameel Zeeno, vol. 2, page 227

I conclude presenting the Arabic audio reply given by Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih Al Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] with an English translation.


Note :

Dear Muslim brothers and sisters upon us is to Fear Allaah as he should be feared and disassociate from those who are upon misguidance. We need to safeguard our Eman and that can only be done by seeking the correct Islamic knowledge from the authentic and reliable scholars. We need to learn more and more about Tawheed and Sunnah so that we may not fall into Shirk, Bidah and other deviations. All success and glory is in strongly adhering to Aqidah and manhaj of Salaf as-salih as they were upon haq (truth).
