Qasida al-Burda: Muslim Spirituality in a Nutshell

A beautiful recording with music and photographs from around of the Muslim world of the famous praise poem to the Prophet Muhammad, Qasida al-Burda, written by the eminent Sufi Salih Sharaf al-Din 'Abd Allah Muhammad ibn Hasan al-Busiri of Egypt (1212-1296.) This montage represents, I think, the heart of Muslim spirituality and reverence with regard to the founder of their religion, the Prophet Muhammad. If you watch one video which I post, this should be it. If possible, enlarge to view the subtitles.
