Also known as Qaṣīdat al-Burda in Arabic was a much larger poem (Naat) than is usually recited.
It was written by Imam Al Busiri in praise if Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
It is said that Busiri who was paralysed and bed-ridden for several years was visited by Muhammad (SAW), who spread his black shawl (Burda) on him, thereby curing him. Often the poem is recited to help cure ailments in addition to simply being recited as a Naat at suitable occasions.
