Shaykh Fateh Usman al-Zubayr: Imam al-Busiri's Burda (Sudan)

Lyrics of the Imam Busairi's Qasidat al-Burda translated by Mostafa Azzam

 
Chorus

My master, bless and salute always and for evermore
Your most beloved, creation’s greatest entirely.

My keeper, bless and salute always and for evermore
The most beloved and all the household entirely.

Chapter 1

Lyrics of the Burdah by Mostafa Azzam Chorus
My master, bless and salute always and for evermore
Your most beloved, creation’s greatest entirely.
My keeper, bless and salute always and for evermore
The most beloved and all the household entirely. Chapter 1
Is it from thinking of neighbors past in Dhu Selemi
That you have mixed blood in tears that flow from eyes steadily?
Or blowing of wind from the direction of Kazimah,
And lightning flashing from Idum in the dark that you see?
So what is wrong with your eyes: when you say “Stop!” they just weep?
And with your heart: when you say, “Be sane!” it acts crazily?
Does one so lovestruck imagine love is concealable,
Between a downpour from it and being so fiery?
If not for passion, you would have never burst into tears
At the remains, nor lost sleep over the mount or the tree.
So how do you still deny a love to which testified
Against you true witnesses of tears and infirmity;
When grief has fixed on your cheeks canals of tears and malaise
Like branches of dogwood, red, and daffodils, yellowy?
Yes, sights of my love have come at night and kept me awake;
How love repels all delights and comforts with agony!
You critic of love so passionate, an apology
From me to you—but if you were true, you’d not censure me.
May you be spared what I bear—my secret isn’t concealed
From haters, nor is there any end to my malady.
You’ve offered me true advice, but simply, I hear it not;
The lover is deaf to all of those who speak critically.
I’ve even doubted gray hair’s advice when it censures me;
Although gray hair with advice is less in dubiety
