COMMENTARY


[It is mentioned in Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Musnad of Ahmad ibn Hambal
and other books of renowned Sunni scholars that the HOLY PROPHET (SAWW) said:
"Kawthar is a stream of super excellence, exclusively belonging to me. Only
the righteous believers (among my followers) will be allowed to drink from it.
Ali shall distribute the water from it to them.
On the Day of Judgment I will see some of my companions driven, like cattle,
away from Kawthar. It will be announced that they are those who, after my
departure from the world, deviated from the true religion and introduced
innovations (based upon conjecture) to corrupt the faith."
From that day Ali was known and referred to by the companions as saqi al-
kawthar i.e., the Distributor of Kawthar
Kawthar also means abundance of descendants. The countless
descendants of the Imams of the Ahul Bait, in the progeny of Ali and
Fatimah are known as syeds. They are the descendants of the HOLY
PROPHET (SAWW).
This chapter guarantees abundance in every type of growth and profit to the HOLY
PROPHET (SAWW). In gratitude of the grant of "abundance", the HOLY PROPHET
(SAWW) and his Ahlul Bait demonstrated highest standard of devotion in prayers and in
giving everything they had in the cause of ALLAH.]

SURAH [108] ABUNDANCE

Innaaa a-taynaakal-kawthar.
[108:1] Surely We have given you Kausar,
When the HOLY PROPHET's (SAWW) son, Tahir, born to Khadijah al-Kubra, died, Amr bin As and Hakam bin As taunted the HOLY PROPHET (SAWW) by calling
him abtar --- i.e., the animal whose tail is cut off, meaning, the one whose succession in his seed has ceased, i.e., the one who has none to inherit. This surah was
revealed to give glad tidings to the HOLY PROPHET (SAWW) that abundance of unbounded grace, wi sdom and knowledge, mercy and goodness, spiritual
power and insight, in highest degrees, and of progeny has been given to him.
It is mentioned in Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Musnad of Ahmad ibn Hambal and other books of renowned Sunni scholars that the HOLY PROPHET
(SAWW) said:
"Kawthar is a stream of super excellence, exclusively belonging to me. Only the righteous believers (among my followers) will be allowed to drink from
it. Ali shall distribute the water from it to them.
On the Day of Judgment I will see some of my companions driven, like cattle, away from Kawthar. It will be announced that they are those who, after
my departure from the world, deviated from the true religion and introduced innovations (based upon conjecture) to corrupt the faith."
From that day Ali was known and referred to by the companions as saqi al-kawthar i.e., the Distributor of Kawthar
Kawthar also means abundance of descendants. The countless descendants of the Imams of the Ahul Bait, in the progeny of Ali and Fatimah are
known as syeds. They are the descendants of the HOLY PROPHET (SAWW).
This chapter guarantees abundance in every type of growth and profit to the HOLY PROPHET (SAWW). In gratitude of the grant of "abundance", the HOLY
PROPHET (SAWW) and his Ahlul Bait demonstrated highest standard of devotion in prayers and in giving everything they had in the cause of ALLAH.
The sacrifice of Imam Husayn, his grandson, has been described as dhibin azim in verse 37:107 of Saffat (For their salat see commentary of Baqarah 2:3,
43, 45; Ta Ha 20:132.
In some degree or other, according to the grade of their submission, all the believing men and women receive some portion from the
"abundance" given to the HOLY PROPHET (SAWW), THEREFORE they are commanded to pray salat regularly and sacrifice whatever they have.
Nahr, in verse 2, means sacrifice. It may also mean "raising of hands" in prayer whenever Allahu akbar is said.
In verse 3 it is said that the enemies of the HOLY PROPHET (SAWW and his Ahlul Bait as explained in the commentary of Baqarah 2:2 to 5) will be lost in
oblivion. It is a divine prophesy.


Fa-salli li-Rab-bika wanhaar.
[108:2] Therefore pray to your Lord and
make a sacrifice.
Though this verse is addressed to the HOLY PROPHET (SAWW) to mean that in return for the greatest blessings and the greatest amount of the grace of ALLAH
which has been showered on him, he should pray and offer sacrifices, BUT it is a command or instruction for everyone, saying that he who aspires for the
special blessings from ALLAH should get them through prayer and sacrifices. As a matter of fact, it is the common man who needs such guidance, not an Apostle
of ALLAH who is sent duly conditioned with spiritual excellence and the necessary knowledge of the means to achieve goodness, to show those ways to mankind.




Inna shaani-aka huwal-abtar.
[108:3] Surely your enemy is the one who
shall be without posterity.
There is a consolation as well as a prophecy that it is the one who taunted the HOLY PROPHET (SAWW) as Abtar who would go into oblivion and not the HOLY
PROPHET (SAWW), for the issues which he will be blessed with through Ali and Fatema, will be in such abundance that none will be able to enumerate them or
know their number correctly.
Today the Sadaat or the issues of the HOLY PROPHET (SAWW) are found in every part of the world, and this wonderful abundance was granted by ALLAH
through the one single daughter Lady Fatema who was married to Ali.
NO KING OR ANY OTHER PROPHET CAN CLAIM THIS GRACE OF HAVING HIS LINAGE CONTINUED FOR CENTURIES TOGETHER WITH THE INNUMERABLE
MEMBERS OF IT.
