Polytheistic Poetry: Shaykh Salih Alish-Shaykh

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Listening to and being well pleased with poetry that has contained therein polytheism while being fully aware of this, like the poem called “Al-Burdah” by Busairi and similar poetry in which the authors went beyond bounds concerning (the right of) the Prophet -sallahu alayhi wa salaam-, his family, or anyone from the righteous. This poetry has contained therein the creation being described with that which only Allah The Exalted is to be described (from perfect and complete attributes specific to Him alone). Some of these poems have within them polytheistic exaggerations that are recited at certain celebrations. Hence it is obligatory to reject and avoid such poetry in order to preserve one’s Islam. May Allah protect the Muslims from polytheism and it’s (varying) manifestations.
