Tafseer of Suraatul Kawthar
by Allamah as-Shaykh ibn Sa’adi ©

Allaah The Exalted , says to His Messenger – Muhammad sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam -
promising :

ﺎﻧﹺ ﺇ  ﻙﺎ ﻨ ﻴﹶ ﻄ ﻋﹶ ﺃ  ﺮﹶ ﺛ ﻮﹶ ﻜﹾ ﻟﺍ

Verily, We have granted you Al-Kawthar ;

Meaning : abundant good , and great favours – which will be given By Allaah to His
Messenger sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam.
And from those which will be given to him on the day of judgment is : a river which is
called Al-Kawthar ; and also the pond which is called ; Al-Kawthar.

Its length ; is the distance of one month, and its width ; is the distance of one month ,
Its water is more white than milk , and more sweet than honey ,
Its drinking vessels are many and spread like the number of stars in the sky .

Whoever drinks from it one time ; will never become thirsty ever after.

In his tafseer , Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen explains -what means - : ‘ The river in Paradise given to him
(sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam) is al-kawthar ; and the hawdh (the pond) [where he (sallahAllaahu alayhi
wasallam) will meet his followers and let them drink from it ] ; after the Judgement has been completed ,
is also called al-kawthar.

This is because the water of the hawdh , is from the river which is based in the Highest Paradise.

So the river pours its water into the pond which is out of Paradise -and will be present on the day of
Judgement- for those who truly followed the sunnah of the prophet (sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam).
The Tafseer : ©

And when He (Allaah) mentioned His great favours on him (sallahAllaahu alayhi
wasallam) ;
He ordered him to thank Him for these ;

So He said :

“ Therefore turn in prayer to your Lord and sacrifice (to Him only).”

Specified in mention ; are these two types of worship : because they are from the best
of types of worship , and [they are] among the supreme ways of seeking closeness [to

And this is indeed because :
Salaat (prayer) implies humility , and submission of the heart and the limbs : to Allaah.
And it is an expression of the various forms of servitude.

And in slaughtering , is getting close to Allaah by :
- (offering )the best of which the slave has , from the animals to be slaughtered.
- giving out the wealth which is loved and sought by ; by the soul. ©

“ For he who makes you angry..

Meaning : one who makes you angry , defames you , and dispraises you.

 ﻮ ﻫ  ﺮ ﺘ ﺑﻷﺍ

“..he will be cut off “

Meaning : cut off from every good. His actions are cut-off , and his mention is cut-off.

As for Muhammad (sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam) ; then he is truthfully complete.
The one who has complete rights over the other creations ; [and from these is ] :
- Raising his mentioning (praising him) ,
- And giving him abundant support ,
- And following and sticking to his methodology - sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam.
