What is the Basin (al-Hawd)?
The Basin is a place in which Allah prepared a drink for the people of Paradise to drink from before entering Paradise, after which they will never feel thirsty again. Every Prophet has a Basin, from which his nation drinks. The largest of the Basins is that of our Prophet, salla-l-lahu ^alayhi wa sallam. At his basin, there are goblets (drinking vessels) as many as the stars of the sky. Its water comes from the water of Paradise.
