AL-KAWTHAR

Abundance

الكوثر

Meccan (surah 108 • 3 ayahs)

»The surah that informs the Prophet Muḥammad that God has gifted him with ABUNDANCE goodness in this life and far greater resplendence in the Hereafter—for which he is instructed to ever show gratitude and charitable generosity. It takes its name from “the abundance” (al-kawthar) mentioned in verse 1. The surah comes to reassure the Prophet Muḥammad and as a retort to his enemy.«

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH,

THE ALL-BENEFICENT, THE ALL-MERCIFUL.
