Sheikh Abdul hakim Murad

Commentary on the Burda


We need to re-orientate the soul to deserve the gift given to those who wish to open their eyes and see the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) in our dreams

Nothing in creation can prepare us for the beauty, which is comparable to seeing the beauty of the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him)

The enemy retreats when mud settles in the sea

The one who is happy with the remembrance of Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

This was one of the ways of the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him), he was beautiful

The truthful one is constantly reminded of Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala in everything in our life. The Kafir is the opposite.

Man needs constant reassurance that’s his nature.

Imam Busari (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him) called the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) the biggest sign

Everything represents Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala. Only a human being can represent qualities of Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

Divine nature, our nature is to incline to beauty rather than rigour

We are venerable, the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) represents all of the divine names

He is kind to the believers

Muslim soldiers look for people to protect

Rumi (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him) said “Taking the sword point from the madman is part of being Muslim.”

Imam Ali (May Allah Ta'ala enoble his face) was the best of openings, spiritual openings.

The internal beast needs to be slaughtered

Rumi (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him) said “Youth is man, he is our friend."

Someone must be holy before you can become a holy warrior

Somehow we are out of touch with the beloved, the tents have folded

“Who is going to help me restrain this stallion?”

The ego demands witnesses

Relics of a world religion, we have a memory of a better time

We sit on a stallion trying to acknowledge the problems of ourselves

We need to acknowledge our problems;
Lost our way
We messed up
Take the medicine of the Prophetic qualities

When things are hopeless, don’t worry, we have been told this would happen by the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him)

Imam Hajar (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him) commentary

“Life is the brother of death.” Said Prophet (peace and blessings upon him)

Real darkness in Arabia left when the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) gave life to the Muslims

We are like sheep munching grass unable to contemplate

Submission to Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala is hard to draw out tears of blood

Allah’s Subhanu wa Ta’ala Merchandise comes at a high price and you’ll be given

Is there anyone who will roll up there sleeves for Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala? we are the ones who will

The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) is a reflection of the divine like the sun is reflected on the moon

His light is beautiful reflection. The most perfect representative of the divine

Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala takes people out of the darkness into the light

The shadows

Shadows need light, this world is a reflection and shadows. There can never be absolute darkness without light and nothing is absolute except Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

Imam Busri (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him) is giving us a hard lesson

Forgiven his faults, he was never complacent

The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) was a thankful servant

Despite the high degree, he is still working hard, look at the reason for it. This is the highest station

“My eye sleeps but my heart doesn’t sleep.” Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) said.

Intensive abstinence of the things of the world

Death is the precious gift to believe

“Poverty is my pride.” We should call ourselves the poor. They are the ones who need help, Allah is free from all needs and wants.

Prostration of helplessness is what we have

A grateful slave

We have forgotten how to be poor

Joy of the believer is to remember the garden. Anything where Dhikr is towards Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala. The garden is where we feel at ease.

You need a hard forgiveness

His choice of poverty

His form is not like our forms he was fed by Allah, but we cannot fast like the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) fasted. Ibn Hajar (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him) said he is being given strength, it doesn’t mean he didn’t feel hungry or feel the pain of hunger. He used to tie a rope and a stone around his stomach.

He made the choice to be hungry

Unimaginable treasures were offered to him (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him), but he refused

Gold is called dhb because it goes. (the word for go is spelt the same)

Money is called mil so it is mal, which inclines

The world dunya is the lowest thing

Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala sent Gibril to the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) to ask if he wanted mountains of gold, he refused.

He was undisputed leader of Arabia yet he didn’t take from the public funds “bait al mal”

Always remember poverty we need money comforts. He never ate his fill

We should be considered this money

Legimate to take financial consideration when a father marries his daughter to someone

A scholar married a woman
He pretended to be half deaf when he was alone with his wife for the first time when she released wind and he pretended for the rest of his life with her. He didn't want to hurt her feelings

Work for the world for the proportion (for time you will spend there)
Work for the afterlife in the proportion (for time you will spend there)
Work for Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala in your need for him

Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) “What have I got to with the world as someone who takes a rest under a tree and then goes.”

Hands should be empty of property

Zuhud is not to see anything but Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

Whenever your turn, there is the creation of Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

A Sufi from Kufa says “Does the dunya have any value with you, when it doesn’t have an value in the first place."

Prophet (peace and blessings upon him), “Renounce the dunya and Allah will love you. Renounce what is in peoples hands and the people will love you.”

Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala is without needs and is perfect

Time is his creation

The purpose of this world is to (to give a place to) worship

The moments of the Prophets (peace and blessings upon him) prayer was the reason the world was created

When we kiss the black stone we are confirming our allegiance

Sira are subjections of hadith

A believer should walk gently on the earth

Where dead people are being questioned

An Arab is called Arab and a wandering arab is called arabi

Adam (Upon him peace) language was Syriac

8% Syrians are non Muslim and 10% of Egypt and 1% in turkey

There is a universal attraction of the Prophetic message

85% of the Muslims are not Arab

The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him)
“There is no difference between Arab and a non Arab except in piety.”
