Lessons from Hadith Shareef ~ The Fountain (Al~Haudh) Of Al~Kauthar

Excerpts from ~ Ramadaan 1435 Programmes


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).

Lessons from Hadith Shareef ~ Being ‘Sadooqul Lisaan’ (Truthful of Tongue) and ‘Makhmumul Qalb’ (Pure of Heart)

Excerpts from ~ Ramadaan 1435 Programmesbismillahh


 عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو، قَالَ قِيلَ لِرَسُولِ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ أَىُّ النَّاسِ أَفْضَلُ قَالَ ‏”‏ كُلُّ مَخْمُومِ الْقَلْبِ صَدُوقِ اللِّسَانِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا صَدُوقُ اللِّسَانِ نَعْرِفُهُ فَمَا مَخْمُومُ الْقَلْبِ ?  قَالَ ‏”‏ هُوَ التَّقِيُّ النَّقِيُّ لاَ إِثْمَ فِيهِ وَلاَ بَغْىَ وَلاَ غِلَّ وَلاَ حَسَدَ‏”‏ ‏

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr RA says that Rasulullah ﷺ was asked: “Who among men is the best?” He (ﷺ) replied: “Everyone who is pure of heart (**Makhmumul Qalb) and truthful of tongue (*Sadooqul Lisaan).” They enquired: “Truthful of Tongue“—we know what this is. But what is “Makhmumul Qalb”? He (ﷺ) said : “It is (the heart) that is pure and pious upon which there is no sin, transgression, deceit, malice or envy in it.”

~ Sunan Ibn Majah

We find in the Ahadeeth of Rasulullah  ﷺ, there is great emphasis on speaking the truth and having a Qalbe-Saleem (pure clean heart).

These two Arabic words in this Hadith : Sadooqul Lisaan and Makhmumul Qalb, highlight the importance of these characteristics.

 *Sadooqul Lisaan : A person who is truthful and who’s tongue always utters that which is correct (not false).

When a person speaks lies, then those angels that are around him, move far away from him, because of the odour and the stench that emanates from the persons mouth.

**Makhmumul Qalb : Literally, the word means, ‘the heart must be swept’ (cleansed). That heart which is pure, clean, pious, righteous. It has no sin on it. There are no black spots on this heart. There are no traces of malice in it.

• Rasulullah ﷺ said, “Whosoever gives me a guarantee that he will safeguard what is between his jaws (the tongue) and what is between his legs (the private parts), I shall guarantee him Jannah.” (Bukhari)

Concerning malice and jealousy, our good A’amaal are destroyed because of these traits.

• Rasulullah ﷺ said, “Beware of jealousy, for indeed jealousy consumes one’s good deeds like fire consumes wood.” (Sunan Abi Dawud)

• Hazrat Anas bin Malik reported: Rasulullah ﷺ said to me, “O boy, if you are able every morning and evening to remove any rancor from your heart towards anyone, then do so.” Then Rasulullah  ﷺ  said to me, “O boy, that is my tradition (sunnah) and whoever revives my tradition has loved me, and whoever loves me will be with me in Paradise.”(Tirmidhi)

Let us talk less…  Control our tongues …  Speak the truth … Be honest … and reach our Allah with a Qalbe-Saleem (pure clean heart)
