whiter water

عن عبدالله بن عمرو رضي الله عنه، عن الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: “ حوضي مسيرةُ شهرٍ. وزواياه سواءٌ . وماؤُه أبيضُ من الورِقِ . وريحُه أطيبُ من المسكِ. وكيزانُه كنجومِ السماءِ. فمن شرب منه فلا يظمأُ بعده أبدًا ” صحيح مسلم حديث ٢٢٩٢ - صحيح البخاري حديث ٦٥٧٩

`Abdullah b. `Amr al-`As, reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: “ My Cistern (is as wide and broad that it requires) a month’s journey (to go round it) all, and its sides are equal and its water is whiter than silver, and its odour is more fragrant than the fragrance of musk, and its jugs (placed around it) are like stars in the sky; and he who would drink from it would never feel thirsty after that.” Sahih Muslim 2292

حوضي مسيرةُ شهر: يعني مقدار ما يَسيرُ المسافرُ شهرًا كاملًا

الوَرِق : الفضة 

كيزانه كنجوم السماء : الأكوابَ الموضوعة على جانبَيْه عَدَدُ نُجومِ السَّماء


Tafseer Surah Al-Kawthar
by sheikh Al-saadi

Allah says to his Prophet, Muhammad ﷺ {Verily, We have granted you (O Muhammad ) Al-Kauthar} great good and immense grace. Part of this goodness and grace is the
river that he ﷺ was given called al-Kawthar. and the Pond  (Hawd) whose breadth
and width is the distance of one month’s journey; its water is whiter than milk and its
taste sweeter than honey; its vessels number the amount of stars in the sky and
resemble them in radiance. Whoever drinks from it, be it just one sip, will never be
thirsty again. [1]

After mentioning the blessings conferred him ﷺ, Allah orders him to show
gratitude, {Therefore turn in prayer to your Lord and sacrifice} these two [i.e prayer and sacrifice] have been specifically mentioned because they are two of the best acts of worship and means of drawing close to Allah.

Prayer comprises submission of the heart and limbs to Allah and
the body’s moving from one posture of servitude to another.

Sacrifice comprises the servant drawing closer to Allah by his sacrificing the best animals he has and expending his wealth which man naturally loves and hoards.

{For he who makes you angry (O Muhammad)  he will be cut off} abhors you, censures you and devalues your true status {will be cut off} of all good. His deeds will be severed and his acclaim forgotten.

As for Muhammad ﷺ he is the perfect man, reaching the heights of human perfection. His acclaim will be heralded everywhere and his followers and helpers will be many.


[1]. Bukhari N°4964 records the hadith of Anas who said: When the Prophet ﷺ was taken to the heaven he said, (I came to a river, the banks of which were domes of hollowed pearls. I asked, ‘What is this Jibril? ’ He replied, ‘This is al- Kawthar.)

Bukhari N°4965-4966 records that  A’ishah said: (It is a river which was given to your Prophet ï·º, on its shores are hollow pearls and the number of its vessels are like that of the stars.)

Bukhari N°7050 and Muslim N°2290 record on the authority of Sahl that the
Messenger of Allah ï·º said: (I will arriving before you at the Hawd. Whoever comes to it will drink from it; and whoever drinks from it will never again experience thirst.)
