Surah Al Kausar is the shortest surah of the Quran. Allah revealed this surah to announce the good news to the prophet (PBUH). This surah is known to bring happiness and prosperity amongst
Muslims. Allah also defined the relationship of a Muslim with his creator.Surah Al Kausar was awarded in Mecca. It is in the last Juz of the Quran. The word “Kausar” means “plentiful or in abundance”. It indicates how much Allah blessed Prophet (PBUH). Allah also said to Prophet (PBUH) to thank Him and slaughter a camel as a celebration of blessing.
Reasons Behind Revealing of Surah Al Kausar
As we have learned from history, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had four daughters from His first wife, Khadijah. Only one of them survived to be an adult while the rest died at a small age. Prophet
(PBUH) had sons from His marriages but none of them survived.
In these circumstances, Arab of that era, disheartened the prophet (PBUH) by saying that He will be left filiated. This thought of being in the line of descent was hurting the Prophet (PBUH). But Allah the greatest answered to His prayers and announced the good news by revealing Surah Kausar.
Allah told the Prophet (PBUH) that Fatimah (only daughter of the Prophet who survived and served Him until decease) will be the abundant blessing of the Prophet (PBUH). She will continue the
Prophet’s (PBUH) lineage unless the world exists.
Allah also replied to the enemies that all of them who are calling Prophet (PBUH) to be filiated, they are the ones who will not have offspring. You will not have any child who will take your name.
Surah Al Kausar is a Stream in Jannah
There are some sayings that ‘Kausar’ is referred to as the stream of a river in Jannah. It is also said that it contains water which is whiter than milk and tastes sweeter than honey. This stream was triggered by the revelation of Surah Kausar.
