Virtues which will bring bowl of Kawsar

What is Pond of Kawsar?

Allah Almighty has bestowed a pond upon our Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. Its water is whiter than milk, sweeter than honey, more fragrant than Musk. He who drinks it once will never feel thirsty. The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم will quench the thirst of his Ummah with it. (Kitab-ul-‘Aqaaid, pp. 36, summarised)

On the Day of Judgement, when everyone will be thinking of themselves and will be extremely thirsty due to the intensity of heat, at such a time the people will be very fortunate whose thirst Allah Almighty will quench from the Pond of Kawsar of His Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. Such virtuous deeds have been mentioned in narrations by virtue of the blessing of which a Muslim will be blessed with a bowl of Kawsar. Few of them are given below:

Recite blessed Durood in abundance

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said: ‘لَیَرِدَنَّ الْحَوْضَ عَلَیَّ اَقْوَامٌ مَّا اَعْرِفُهُمْ اِلَّا بِکَثْرَۃِ الصَّلَاۃِ عَلَیّ’ i.e. At the Pond of Kawsar some people will come to me whom I will recognize due to abundance of Durood. (Al-Qaul-ul-Badi’, pp. 264)

Recite blessed Durood

Sayyiduna Hasan Basri رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه has said: The person who wants to drink a bowl full of water from the Pond of Kawsar should recite the following blessed Durood:

اَللّٰہُمَّ   صَلِّ   عَلٰی  مُحَمَّدٍ  وَّ  عَلٰی  اٰ  لِہٖ  وَ اَصْحَابِہٖ  وَ اَوْلَادِہٖ  وَ اَ زْوَاجِہٖ  وَ ذُرِّیّٰتِہٖ

وَ اَھْلِ  بَیْتِہٖ  وَ اَصْھَارِہٖ   وَ اَنْصَارِہٖ وَ اَشْیَاعِہٖ  وَ مُحِبِّیْہِ  وَ اُمَّتِہٖ  وَ عَلَیْنَا  مَعَھُمْ  اَجْمَعِیْنَ   یَا  اَرْحَمَ  الرَّاحِمِیْنَ

(Ash-Shifa, part 2, pp. 72)

Feed fasting person

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said: The one who serves fasting person with Iftari will get the same reward as the fasting person will get without anything being reduced from his reward. The one who gives food to a fasting person to his fill, Allah Almighty will make him drink from my Pond and he will never feel thirsty and will enter Paradise. (Shu’ab-ul-Iman, vol. 3, pp. 305, Hadees 3608)

Avoid unnecessary conversation

The Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has mentioned some attributes of the Pond of Kawsar and said: On the Judgement Day, he who will remain deprived of this place will remain deprived of every type of goodness. Listen! He who wants to reach me (at the Pond of Kawsar) on the Judgement Day should prevent his tongue and hands from unnecessary talks and activities. (Ihya-ul-‘Uloom, vol. 5, pp. 219, summarised)

Give water to drink, and get a bowl of Kawsar

The Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said: He who gives water to the traveller who is in the Divine path, so he will be privileged to come to the Pond of Kawsar on the Judgement Day and 70 more people will also be blessed with it by his intercession. (Musnad-ul-Haris, vol. 2, pp. 651, Hadees 627)

May Allah Almighty enable us to perform the virtuous deeds which will bring us the bowl of water from the Pond of Kawsar and bestow the bowl of Kawsar by His grace and blessings upon us on the Judgement Day!
