A River

I entered Paradise and found myself by a river, by its edges were tents of pearls.

Then I tapped with my hands where the water was running, and there was then a beautiful smell of Musk.

I asked, "What is this O Gabriel?"

He said, "This is Kawthar (river in Paradise) which Allah has given to you." (Sahihi al-Jami)

"The similitude of knowledge without action is a book ladened donkey." (Qur'an, 62:5)
