Watch Dr Musharraf Hussain sharing his thoughts and analysis of Surat Al-Kawthar. This is a Makkan surat, it was revealed when the Prophet ﷺ lost both of his baby sons, Qasim and Abdullah, the Qurayshi leaders, including Abu Lahab, were jubilant and called the Prophet Abtar; a pejorative term meaning cut off, i.e. sonless. In other words, the taunt was that the Prophet ﷺ had no surviving male heirs, therefore his mission and campaign would come to end with his demise. The Messenger ﷺ was naturally hurt by these callous comments, so Allah consoled His beloved Messenger ﷺ and promised him abundant success, bliss and never-ending Divine favours. The Kawthar, abundance could be his beautiful qualities, masses and masses of followers and the lake of sweet water on Judgement Day.
In the name of Allah, the Kind, the Caring.
We gave everything in abundance to you, so, pray to your Lord and make a sacrifice. Your enemy will be finished, cut off.
