Salaamun Salaam

".... 'Umayr wished them good day- a salutation of paganism- and the Prophet said: "God hath given us a better greeting that thine, O 'Umayr. It is Peace, the greeting of the people of Paradise"...."

- Muhammad (saws), Martin Lings, p157

Peace be upon Allah's Rasool

Back in the summer last year, I wrote a long post about a most amazing mawlid that I had the blessed opportunity of attending. I wrote about a truly heart warming urdu/arabic blend of the Burda, one of the most catching I had ever heard. It was sung with such zest and power and love. Below it is, to get us into the Rabbi Ul Awwal spirit. Get your copies of the Burda shareef at the ready and join in praise of the best of creation!!

***NOTE! - In order to hear with clarity, you can switch the automated nasheed on pause/stop. The player is on the right hand sidebar .... scroll down under the links and under the Barzanji Mawlid link it can be found. Press pause or stop inshallah. ***
