Al-Kauthar

06Sep09

               Muslim, An-Nasai and Abu Dawud all recorded from Anas Radiallahu anho that he said,

” While we were with Allah’s messenger Sallahu alayhi  wassallam in the masjid he dozed off. Then he lifted his head smiling. We said ” Oh Allahs messenger! What has caused you to laugh, ”

He said,

«لَقَدْ أُنْزِلَتْ عَلَيَّ آنِفًا سُورَة»

                                  “Verily a surah was just revealed to me”

Then he recited,   

[إِنَّآ أَعْطَيْنَـكَ الْكَوْثَرَ – فَصَلِّ لِرَبِّكَ وَانْحَرْ – إِنَّ شَانِئَكَ هُوَ الاٌّبْتَرُ ]

Verily, We have granted you Al-Kawthar. Therefore turn in prayer to your Lord and sacrifice. For he who hates you, he will be cut off.

Then he said,   

«أَتَدْرُونَ مَا الْكَوْثَرُ؟»

Do you all know what is Al-Kawthar?

We said, `Allah and His Messenger know best.’ He said,

«فَإِنَّهُ نَهَرٌ وَعَدَنِيهِ رَبِّي عَزَّ وَجَلَّ،عَلَيْهِ خَيْرٌ كَثِيرٌ، هُوَ حَوْضٌ تَرِدُ عَلَيْهِ أُمَّتِي يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ، آنِيَتُهُ عَدَدُ النُّجُومِ فِي السَّمَاءِ، فَيُخْتَلَجُ الْعَبْدُ مِنْهُمْ فَأَقُولُ: رَبِّ إِنَّهُ مِنْ أُمَّتِي، فَيَقُولُ: إِنَّكَ لَا تَدْرِي مَا أَحْدَثَ بَعْدَك»

(Verily, it is a river that my Lord, the Mighty and Majestic, has promised me and it has abundant goodness. It is a pond where my Ummah will be brought to on the Day of Judgement. Its containers are as numerous as the stars in the sky. Then a servant of Allah from among them will be (prevented from it) and I will say: “O Lord! Verily, he is from my Ummah (followers).” Then He (Allah) will say: “Verily, you do not know what he introduced (or innovated) after you.)”
