Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radiyallahu Anhu narrates that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: He who seeks the Dunya in a lawful way, refraining from begging, striving for his family and being kind towards his neighbours, will meet Allah Ta’ala on the Day of Resurrection with his face shining like the full moon. And he who seeks worldly things, in a lawful way, boasting,  seeking abundance, showing off, will meet Allah such that Allah will be very angry with him. (Baihaqi)

When making Dua, we should Ask Allah Ta’ala to grant us the intercession of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam on the day of Qiyamah and bless us with the water of Haudh-e-Kauthar from his Mubaruk hands … If we bring the True Sunnats into our lives, together with making a proper Whudu and performing Salaah, we will acquire a brightness on our faces on the day of Qiyamah and Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam will very easily recognise us and give us the water of Haudh-e-Kauthar from his Mubaruk hands to drink….

قَالَ عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عَمْرٍو قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ حَوْضِي مَسِيرَةُ شَهْرٍ، مَاؤُهُ أَبْيَضُ مِنَ اللَّبَنِ، وَرِيحُهُ أَطْيَبُ مِنَ الْمِسْكِ، وَكِيزَانُهُ كَنُجُومِ السَّمَاءِ، مَنْ شَرِبَ مِنْهَا فَلاَ يَظْمَأُ أَبَدًا ‏”‏‏.‏

Narrated by Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr RA: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said :

“My Fountain (Kauthar) is so long that it takes a month’s journey to cross it. Its water is whiter than milk, and its smell is more fragrant than musk, and its drinking cups are (as numerous) as the (number of) stars in the sky; and whoever drinks from it, will never be thirsty.” 

~ Bukhari

عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ ‏ “‏ الْكَوْثَرُ نَهَرٌ فِي الْجَنَّةِ حَافَتَاهُ مِنْ ذَهَبٍ مَجْرَاهُ عَلَى الْيَاقُوتِ وَالدُّرِّ تُرْبَتُهُ أَطْيَبُ مِنَ الْمِسْكِ وَمَاؤُهُ أَحْلَى مِنَ الْعَسَلِ وَأَشَدُّ بَيَاضًا مِنَ الثَّلْجِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

 : Narrated from Hazrat Ibn ‘Umar RA that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said

“Kauthar is a river in Paradise whose banks are of gold and its bed is of rubies and pearls. Its soil is more fragrant than musk, its water is sweeter than honey and whiter than snow.”

Sunan Ibn Majah ~

Narrated by Hazrat Al-Musaiyab RA: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said : 

“Some men from my companions will come to my Al-haud (Lake-Fount) and they will be driven away from it, and I will say, ‘O Lord, my companions!’ It will be said, ‘You have no knowledge of what they innovated after you left: they turned apostate as renegades (reverted from Islam).
