Beautiful Name of Allah 97 al-Wārith

al-Wārith audio caligraphy

The Inheritor,  The Supreme Heir

The One who remains after all of creation has perished. The One to whom all returns.

The One who has everlasting ownership of all that has ever been and that will ever be.

The One to whom all possessions return when the possessor is gone. The One who inherits all that we have done.

From the root w-r-th which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to inherit
to be an heir, survivor
to be the owner or sustainer after someone

This name is used in the Qur’ān. For example, see 15:23

After all greed, lust, misunderstanding and selfishness have been laid to rest, the One who remains is al-Wārith.

When one surrenders, and lets go of all worldly things, the One who remains is al-Wārith.

All that we possess, even our bodies, are only on loan for a moment.

(Also written as al-warith, al-waarith, al-varith, the Inheritor: ya warith, ya waarith )
