"انا اعطيناك الكوثر" Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Aqa RA, in illuminating Maulana Ali's AS glory explained that he is the fount of كوثر. He is the source of all knowledge. The four letters of كوثر represent the four rivers of Jannat, which Allah Ta'ala illustrates in the Qur'an Majeed:
فِيهَا أَنْهَارٌ مِنْ مَاءٍ غَيْرِ آسِنٍ وَأَنْهَارٌ مِنْ لَبَنٍ لَمْ يَتَغَيَّرْ طَعْمُهُ وَأَنْهَارٌ مِنْ خَمْرٍ لَذَّةٍ لِلشَّارِبِينَ وَأَنْهَارٌ مِنْ عَسَلٍ مُصَفًّى
These rivers are the four tributaries of Haude Kauthar. Within the first, flows knowledge that is fresh (tazah) and timeless. Regardless of how many centuries go by, this river's knowledge will never grow old or lose relevance. The second tributary's knowledge has the characteristic of milk that never sours. Milk tends to spoil quickly, but the taste (sawaad) of the 'ilm that flows within these channels never perishes. From the knowledge within the third river, mumineen derive pleasure and enjoyment (lazzat). While this 'ilm is not intoxicating, we are continuously drawn towards it. The final tributary of Haude Kauthar is the river of pure honey. Honey is unique in that it will preserve whatsoever you mix with it; honey itself never expires. Honey (shehed) has curative properties, and those who benefit from this ilm are showered with shifaa‘.
During Ashara Mubaraka 1437H, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS linked 'Asale Musaffa' with his naas, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA. For 50 years, mumineen drank from the pure and sweet rivers of the knowledge he bestowed upon us, curing us of all our ills and uplifting us to unimaginable heights. Maula RA's purest bayaan was the zikr of Imam Husain AS.
Imam Husain AS's zikr is the epitome of Haude Kauthar, of all four rivers that flow through Jannat. Fourteen hundred years later, the tragic events that unfolded in Karbala are fresh and new; they are as recent as if they had occurred just yesterday. Every time we hear Burhanuddin Maula RA and Mufaddal Maula TUS recite Imam Husain AS's shahaadat, we mourn and simultaneously rejoice because we know that shedding one tear upon Imam Husain AS will ensure we reach Jannat. His zikr is such that we are continuously drawn to it, and it will forever remain untainted and pure as honey.
It was Syedna Taher Saifuddin RA's tradition to write and publish a new risala (letter) during the month of Shehrullah Al Moazzam. His rasaail shareefa are sources of Haude Kauthar; they encompass all four rivers of knowledge. In today's waaz, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA remarked that one day the shaan of the 51st Dai Al Mutlaq’s risaail will become evident and visible. The mawlood of Shehrullah al Moazzam, AaliQadr Mufaddal Maula TUS, is the manifestation of the glory of his grandfather's rasaail. Within his own risaail, his waaz and bayanaat, his qasaid, his munajaat, and his nasihat, flows the knowledge of Haude Kauthar and its tributaries.
Every year during Ashara Mubaraka, Mufaddal Maula TUS gives us the great privilege of hearing the waaz mubarak of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA. Both Burhanuddin Maula RA and his mansoos TUS continue to quench our thirst for 'ilm, to urge us to engage in 'noha wal aweel,' and to remind us that Imam Husain AS's zikr is the fount of all knowledge. With the pearls of wisdom gifted to us during these majalis, Maulana Ali AS's son, Imam Husain AS, and his na'ib Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS, let us drink from the heavenly sources of كوثر.
