“It has been said that Tasawwuf can be defined in two words: “transforming qualities.” In particular, inner qualities–transforming pride to humility, miserliness to generosity, hate to love, and all lowly qualities of the ego, the nafs, to the exalted qualities of the soul, the ruh.

As all exalted qualities are embodied in the best of creation, the Messenger of Allah (salla Llahu `alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam), the path of Muhammadan love seeks to melt the seeker so fully in love with the Prophet (salla Llahu `alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam) that his lowly qualities begin to drop away from him as he becomes adorned with the qualities of his Beloved–as is the natural unfolding of love. That is why the lover looks at the life of the Beloved (salla Llahu `alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam), the sirah, not through historical, biographical, academic eyes, as so many do, but through the eyes of love, such that the more he learns about the Prophet, salla Llahu `alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, the more in love he falls, and the more he is transformed from lowly ego to exalted soul.

And what better text through which to undertake this journey than The Burdah, a ten-chapter expression of love for the best of creation, salla Llahu `alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam. When received with an open heart, it takes the seeker on a journey through selected glimpses into the life and person of the Prophet, salla Llahu `alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, melting him in love and facilitating the desired transformation of qualities by the grace of Allah.”
