مُكاثِر

Hello everybody!

I had a question about a hadith.

تزوجوا الودود الولود فإني مكاثر بكم الأنبياء يوم القيامة

Marry the loving, child bearing person because I ? with you the prophets on the day of judgment.

What is مكاثر?

Thanks
 
  • If مكاثر is an active participle (اسم الفاعل), should إني مكاثر be translated 'I will be boasting'?
     
    No, it doesn’t exactly mean boasting, but the “I will be part” is accurate, if that is what you are asking about.

    The exact meaning of مكاثر is “boasting about the large number”, not just boasting.
