In my opinion, this song by the legendary Egyptian singer, the late Om Kalthoum is her best. One can't forget though that she did have many "bests," but this one is very special. Nahj Al-Burda is derived from a poem by AL-BUSIRI (13th century Alexandria). Om Kalthoum sang a 20th century version of the poem. The rhytm and style of the song are derived from the Sufi tradition in the manner of "Burda." The modern poem was introduced by Ahmad Shawqi, the prominent Egyptian poet. The poem is a tribute to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
