Meaning of Al-Kauthar
11:2:51 2024-06-08 141

It is recorded in al-Bukhari, al-Muslim, Musnad of Ahmed Ibn Hanbal and other Sunni books that the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) said: "Kauthar 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 (p.b.u.h.) will distribute water from it to them. On the day of Judgment, I will see some of my companions driven like cattle away from Kauthar. It will be announced that they are those, who after my departure from the world, deviated from the true religion and introduced innovations to corrupt the faith".
From that day onwards, Ali (p.b.u.h.) became known as Saaqi al Kauthar meaning one who quenches the thirst of believers from the stream of Kauthar.
Kauthar also means Kheire-katheer "Bounties in abundance". Allah (SWT) bestowed the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) plenty of bounties such as prophethood, Holy Quran, companions, rulership, success in battles, acceptance and entrance of people into the fold of Islam in large numbers etc.
However, many Shia scholars say that because in the last verse of this Surah, Allah (SWT) says,

"Verily it is your enemy whose progeny shall be cut off"

this by itself proves that Kauthar is also in reference to the most beloved daughter of the Messenger of Allah, lady Fatimah al-Zahra (p.b.u.h.) through whom Allah (SWT) gave His beloved prophet (p.b.u.h.) abundance of descendants.
