Qasida Iqd al-Thamin

Salam

Please find below a link to the poem entitled Iqd al-Thamin in praise of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) authored by Shaykh Abu Bakr al-Mulla from al-Ahsa in present day Saudi Arabia.

The poem appears to be on the same meter as the famous Qasida al-Burda (i.e. the same tunes used for the Burda can also be used for this poem) and consists of words of: praise of Allah (Most High); lofty attributes and qualities of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) and supplication.

We received this poem from a scholarly descendant of the author in a gathering the month of Rabi al-Awwal a couple of years ago.  He in turn had received it from the scholars of his family going back to the author himself.

The audio recording is of a small group of Saudi Munshids reciting the poem and may be useful to those who would like to review the wording of the poem.

Wassalam
