Abundance Of Good A Tafsīr Of Sūrat ʾl Kawthar – Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on 30th November 2012 at Al Kawthar Academy (Leicester)
Following the death of the sons of the Noble Messenger ﷺ, the disbelievers taunted him saying he is without any lasting progeny. They implied his bloodline and mission had ended and thus he was weak without family honour and a memorable legacy. The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ was extremely saddened and grieved by these remarks.
As a consolation, Allāh revealed these verses pronouncing the abundance of good (al-Kawthar) in this world and in the hereafter for His beloved ﷺ. Rather than his name fading away he will be remembered forever. Allāh has taken it upon Himself that never will His name be mentioned except that His beloved’s name will be mentioned in conjunction with His.
The Prophet ﷺ may not have had surviving sons but he has billions of spiritual sons and far from his name being extinguished, Muslims continue to be influenced by him even today.
