Refutation of Qasidah Burdah (The Poem of Scarf of Al-Busairi) by Shaykh Jameel Zeeno |Part 1|

 

A Short Introduction of the Poet Al-Busairi:

He is Muahmmed bin Saeed al Busairi because of his ascription to his town, Abu Sayr in Egypt. He was born in the year 608 AH and busied himself with Sufism. He was a writer even though he had very limited knowledge with regards to this profession. He was neither a Scholar nor a Jurist, nor was he known to be pious or worshiper. He was hated among his people because of eloquently speaking insolently about the people. He was also known for excessively asking [for money] from people. As a result of this, he would support the Muslim ruler regardless whether Muslim ruler was upon truth or upon falsehood. He died in the Year 695AH . Refer to the Deewan of Al Busairi with the editing of Muhammed Sayyid Kaylaanee page 44-45.

Qasidah Burdah is famous among Sufis (Deobandis and Barelwis) who claim to follow Imam Abu Haneefah (Rahimahullah).  Let us see what this Qasidah Burdah has to teach.

 

 

Busairi says in chapter 10 of his poem, the Poem of Scarf:

Most generous of Mankind, I have no one to take refuge in;

Except you at occurrence of widespread calamity.

 

Refutation:

The Poet Busairi is calling and seeking the help and aid of Allah’s Messenger sallallahu alaihi wasallam and is saying to the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu alaihi wasallam:

‘I cannot find anyone to take refuge and shelter with at the time of general calamities and hardship except with you.’

 

 

This 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 Allah:

And do not invoke besides Allah that which neither benefits you nor harms you, for if you did, then indeed you would be of the wrongdoers (Dhalimoon).'” (Surah Yunus Ayah 106)

 

The word Dhalimoon means:

the Polytheist and wrongdoers because associating partners with Allah is a great Dhulm, Wrong.

 

The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said:

Anyone who dies invoking others along with Allah definitely enter Hell-Fire.

(Saheeh Bukhari, Book 65, chapter 22, Hadeeth no.4497).

 

 

 

Then Busairi Says further,

For verily amongst your bounties is this world, and the Hereafter.

 

 

Refutation:

This is the Denial of Quran in which Allah has  stated:

And indeed, to Us belongs the Hereafter and the first [life].

(Surah Al Lail Ayah no. 13)

Therefore this world and the hereafter are both from Allah and from His Creation. It is not from amongst the bounties and generosity of the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, and it is not that he Sallallahu alaihi wasallam created them so that they are from his creation.

Busairi going ahead and says,

And part of your knowledge is  knowledge of the Preserved Tablet (Lowh), and the Pen.

Refutation:

The Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam did not know anything that is part of  the Preserved Tablet, because nobody has any knowledge of it except Allah, Alone. This is in reality an overtstated praise and exxageration directed at the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu alaihi wasallam as far as to deem and believe that this world and the Hereafter are amongst the bounties and generosity of the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu alaihi wasalllam. Furthermore, the poem attributes, the he Sallallahu alaihi wasallam knows the knowledge of the Unseen that is in Preserved Tablet, and that whatever is in Preserved Tablet is from amongst the knowledge of Messenger of Salllallahu alaihi wasallam.

This exxageration has been warned against by the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu alaihi wasallam and he forbade us from exxagerating and overpraising him, as he Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said:

“Do not praise me excessively as the Christians did to Isa the son of Maryam; verily , I am only a slave, so call me instead the slave of Allah and His messenger. “

( Saheeh Bukhari, Book 60, chapter 48, Hadeeth 3445).
