Hauzu'l-Kausar

by Micha F. Lindemans
The pure lake of Muhammad, situated on the shores of heaven. When the sinless faithful cross the thin bridge Sirat al-Mustaqim they may drink from this 'pond of abundance'. Its water is sweet and white like milk. By drinking it, the blessed forget all the suffering and unhappiness of their earthly life. They will then proceed on their way to their assigned domiciles, their palaces in paradise.
