Question

Could you please provide a reference for this Hadith?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “While I was passing through Jannah [during Mi’raj], I came to a river on the banks of which were tents made of hollow pearls. I asked, ‘What is this, O Jibril?’ He replied, ‘This is Kawthar which your Rabb has granted you. Its soil/scent is that of pungent musk, its soil was the most excellent/pure musk.”
