Eid-Milad-un Nabi Mubarak

12th Rabbi-ul-Awwal 
Eid Milad un Nabi Mubarak.

Ya Nabi Salaam Alaika               Ya Rasool Salaam Alaika
Ya Habeeb Salaam Alaika            Salwatullaha Alaika



Some years ago when cable television was new in Kashmir, PTV World was a very popular channel to watch. During Ramazan, in the pre-Q TV days one would watch PTV's Sehri broadcast featuring a lot of  "Naat shariefs" (odes to the Prophet) interspersed by advertisements of Lazeeza Sheer Khorma Mix and Bonanza sweaters. Then a big moustached Zamindaar would appear, who in a fierce guttural tone recommend the poor farmers to use Mughal (or was it something else?) steel and girders (gaarder, as they pronounced). Live call-in programs were still a few years away. But the best part of Sehri was this - a five lingual recitation of Qaseedah Burdah, originally written by Imam Busairi. Qaseeda Burdah is a beautiful and a very long poem written in the love of Prophet. From the old PTV days, the following video in honour of the Prophet (SallalahuAlaihiWasallam).


Thank God For Little Pleasures. XI
