Allama Ali ibn Muhammad Khazim (may Allah have mercy on him) says that Surah Al-Kausar is Madani according to some commentators and Makki according to some commentators.
Verses Number of words and letters:
In this surah, there is one Raku, three verses, ten words, and forty-two letters.
The reason for naming Kausar:
Kausar refers to the many virtues of this world and the hereafter. And the name of a canal of Paradise is Kausar. This word is present in the first verse of this surah. For this reason, it is called Surah Al-Kausar.
Articles of Surah Al-Kausar
- The first verse of this surah describes the bounty of Allah which He bestowed on His Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).
- In the second verse, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)was told to keep on praying and offering sacrifices in gratitude to Allah.
- In the third verse, it is said that the one who is the enemy of the Prophet (peace be upon him) is the one who is deprived of all good.
Similarity with Surah Maun
The compatibility of Surah Kausar with Surah Ma’un is that the attributes of Sayyid al-Mursalin (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) are described in Surah Al-Kausar as opposed to the attributes of the disbelievers and hypocrites in Surah Ma’oon.
