Open 4.15pm Burdah Recital 4.30pm Dua & Close 6.45pm
If people only knew about the value of the Qasidah Burdah, they would write it on the pupils of their eyes with gold ink.
Join Shaykha Noshin and the Munshidat for a full reading of the Qasidah al-Burdah; the most celebrated and recited ode in the cosmos. Comprised of ten alluring chapters in praise of the Final Messenger (peace be upon him), the Burdah is the most magnificent tribute to the best of creation (peace be upon him).
Bask in the celestial lights that descend from its recitation; the same divine luminosity that cured its author, Imam al-Busiri, from paralysis.
The distinction of the Burdah is etched in the annals of history and will echo for all eternity
The Burdah is a highly refined and eloquent composition that defines the genre of Madih-Nabawi. It is a story of reformation with its euphoric moments lending to its unique legacy.

Since You're Here...
… we have a small favour to ask. We are benefitting more people than ever before, as we have emerged as a leader in the propagation and dissemination of traditional, Sunni Islam. Through our seminars, digital media content, publications, lectures, tours, and classes, we continue to revive the tradition of learning and teaching in Islam.
Almost all our projects operate at a loss, as our only goal is to strengthen our communities by tackling issues of disadvantage and exclusion head-on. So, you can see why we need to ask for your help. The work we are blessed to undertake at Essential Islam’s takes a lot of time, money, and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in our mission – because it might well be your perspective, too.
On a very limited budget, our small team of hard-working volunteers have brought benefit to over 37 million people around the world. We have also been fortunate enough to raise of £1,700,000 for charity to help our fellow Muslims in different parts of the world.
Now imagine what could be achieved with better resources and support?
