Gazing at the Stars

One of the things you can look forward to after you cross the bridge, or Sirat, is reaching the special pool of Muhammad. The water that fills this pool comes from one of the rivers in the Garden of Paradise, from the river called al-Kauthar. This special water is whiter than milk and sweeter than honey. The pool is so large that it would take at least a month to cross from one side to the other. Around the edge of the pool are tiny drinking jugs, as many jugs as there are stars in the heavens. When you drink from your jug, you will be content forever.
