3CD SET + 80pp Case Bound Book in full color. (from the Introduction) I was compelled to translate The Burda after a trip to Mauritania in which I realized it was everywhere, on everyones tongue, always present, always ready to ignite the instant, alter the ambience, enhance the state, bring the presence of the beloved into the room, the tent or wherever we happened to be. Sitting once with my teacher Abd Allah Ould Ahmadna, I heard for the first time a line from Imam Busiri, If Allah places a people in the service of the serene, then they too become serene. As those words flowed from the tongue of my serene teacher, I realized in that moment the reason for my existence, my soul was branded with the power of those words forever. That is Imam al-Busiri. I have heard the Burda many times in many places. In Morocco, I was transported to another world, a perfect world free of sin, free of vice, free of temptation and upon leaving the gathering, I felt as if was once again, we were exiled from the Garden. I have seen Yemenis filled with the same joyful spirit singing in their own unique way like innocent children freed from fear while praising the one who on the day all have fear shows none. Once in Madina, two Sudanese sang a section in a way that brought the poem back to its home, Africa. While it is sung in Indonesia, Pakistan, India, Turkey, Kosovo, Chechnya, Bosnia, even in China, it is and always will be from Africa. It is like Africa, as deep as the oceans that surround her, as powerful as her Nile, as vast as her Sahara and containing as many lights as a starry desert night in Niger.
The Prophet Muhammed, upon him be peace, was someone who went through unparalleled hardship, and yet he never allowed any difficulties to perturb him. In one very powerful and condensed session, Hamza Yusuf explains why. Commenting on the treatise of the seventh century scholar Izz ibn Abdus-Salam, he reveals 17 benefits of tribulations for those who would see them. Not only will this lecture completely transform your outlook on calamities, but it will also leave you in total awe of Allahs magnanimity and infinite mercy.
English audio CD tafseer (explanation) of the 2nd chapter of the Holy Quran
Love (mahabba) for people arises from three characteristics: 1) their physical outward beauty,2) their inward beautiful character, and 3) the good or the sacrifice they do for us. To increase and maintain his love for the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings upon him, Sayyidina Hassan (the Prophets grandson) sought descriptions of all three of these aspects of the Prophet because he wanted something to hold on to. Adding his own commentary to these intimate descriptions, Shaykh Hamza with his usual eloquence, passionately relates what Sayyidina Hassan gathered about the Beloved of Allah, peace and blessings upon him. Shaykh Hamza says, If you knew what the Prophet did for you,you would fall in love with him and explains that mahabba grows like a seed. For those who desire to fall in love with the Beloved of Allah, this talk is for them. One of the calamities of religions is when the Messenger becomes exalted over the One who sent him. We do not believe the Prophet Muhammad is divine. We have been given the gift of understanding the Messenger in relation to the One who sent him. The Prophet Muhammad is central to teachings of Islam. You cannot exalt the Creator without exalting His Messenger, and you cannot exalt His Message without exalting His Messenger. We are commanded by God to magnify the Prophet peace and blessing upon him. Shaykh Hamza Yusuf eloquently explains why we must celebrate the Prophet every day of our lives. He also adds at the end an elucidating explanation of how Muslims should emulate the behavior the Prophet Muhammad had during trying times, reminding us that Prophet(s) taught, the believer is one from whose evil humanity is safe and that he was sent only as a mercy to everyone
On the anniversary of the Miraj, Hamza Yusuf gave a commentary on Sidi Ahmed Zarruq’s “advice” to the one who yearns nearness to his Lord.

This is a timeless lecture of practical spiritual guidance, which the seeker of knowledge will never tire of listening.
At the 2000 Summer Rihla Program in southern Spain, Hamza Yusuf introduced the text The Poor Mans Book of Assistance by the ninth century Moroccan scholar Sidi Ahmed Zarruq to an eager group of students at the Al-Azzargra Madrassa. The extemporary commentary given by Shaykh Hamza is full of insights and wisdoms that will no doubt leave a mark on the listeners heart -- the mark of desiring spiritual growth and purification.One student explained that Sidi Ahmed Zarruq advises you step by step on how to purify the sick heart just as a doctor would advise her ill patient. He provides you with a specific plan to follow on your jouney in attempting to attain your only station for salvation -- that of a sound heart. She also said, Shaykh Hamzas dynamic teaching style really brings this book to life, extrapolating practical applications for the student of the here and now. What we present to you in this original 16 CD set production is the key and guide to understanding the diseases of the heart, the tools for recognizing them, and a detailed map of cures along the way to purification. This set is required learning for anyone truly seeking closeness to God -- the ones whose heart is impoverished -- the poor man.
