The Qasida Burda of Al Busiri

“What has happened to your eyes, (the more) you tell them to stop, the more they continue flowing.

What is the matter with your heart, (the more) you tell it to come to its senses, (the more it is distracted).

Does the lover think that his love can be concealed.

While his eyes are shedding tears and his heart is glowing.”

– Excerpt from the ‘Qasidah Burda’ by Imam Busairi
