By Imran Ahmed on April 21, 2013
Format: Hardcover
A superbly produced edition of one of the most popular pieces of devotional poetry in the Islamic world. Each verse of the Burdah is translated on a single page along with a couplet or stanza of poetry (culled from various sources) relating to the verse somehow. The Arabic calligraphy, illumination, and general design evoke a very Ottoman Turkish aesthetic. Kudos to Abdal Hakim Murad (Timothy J Winter) for putting this edition together.

This was a pricey purchase, but I felt it to be worth it. The translations are meaningful. Instead of being word for word, they capture the gist while still being accurate.

The touches of extra poems at the end of the every couplet made this to be an exploration of thanaa' in different languages.

And, finally, the calligraphy. Wow. I love it.

The book: The language, pages, color, feel of the book itself...all beautiful. But I have one complaint. As I just stated, this book is like a piece of artwork. Why then would you ruin it by slapping a sticker with a barcode on it?! I removed the sticker and not only did it leave a film on the back cover, it also removed some of the design it was stuck on. I dare not try and remove the stickiness for fear of removing even more of the design. Not a good move for a book so pricey! But again, the contents of the book and it's overall design is worth the money.

The first day it arrived, I tore open the box and started to admire the beauty of such a beautiful book. The design and layout is simply amazing. Imam Bursi's Burda is famous and should be read by all. This book can be admired by Muslims as well as Non Muslims. When you open the book there is a BEAUTIFUL picture of Prophet Muhammad's (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) dome hand drawn with a flower. Each page is gold.
