Is this Hadith is authentic?
Narrated by Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Kawthar is a river in Jannah, the two banks of which are made of gold and the bed of which is made of pearls and rubies. Its sand is more fragrant than musk, its water sweeter than honey and clearer than ice.”
Imams Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith. Imam Tirmidhi has declared the Hadith authentic (hasanun sahih).
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3361, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 4334)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
