He who has everlasting ownership of all things. Finite man only has temporary ownership, and at death all crea- tures have nothing. Allah is the real owner of all riches, all things proceed from Him and shall return to Him at the end.
“And verily, it is We Who give life, and Who give death: IT IS WE WHO REMAIN INHERITORS (AF-
TER ALL ELSE PASSES AWAY). To Us are known those of you who hasten forward, and those who lag behind. Assuredly it is thy Lord Who will gather them together: for He is Perfect in Wisdom and Knowledge.”
(15-23…25) The Holy Quran
From the root w-r-th with the classical Arabic connotations: to inherit to be an heir, survivor to be the owner or sustainer after someone.
