In supplications..


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

You should know that invoking Allah Almighty by this name falls under the general meaning of the verse  that says:

{Allah has the Most Beautiful Names, so call upon Him by them...}

[Surat al - A‘rāf:180]

This is specially so when we are keen to use the name suitable for the situation and the object of invocation.

An example is the supplication by Zakariyya (Zachariah) (peace be upon him):

{And [remember] Zachariah, when he cried out to his Lord, “My Lord, do not leave me childless, for You are the Best of Inheritors.”}

[Surat al - Anbiyā’: 89]

Another verse reads:

{And I fear my kinsmen after me, and my wife is barren; sogrant me from Yourself an heir,who will inherit [prophethood] from me and from the house of Jacob, and make him, O Lord, well pleasing to You.}

[Surat Maryam: 5 - 6]

The inheritance referred to in the verses is that of knowledge, prophethood, and the call to Allah. It is not an inheritance of wealth.
Another example of such blessed inheritance occurs in the verse that says:

{And Solomon inherited David...}

[Surat an - Naml: 16]

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is authentically reported to have said in supplication:

“Allāhumma amti‘ni bisam‘i wa basari waj‘alhuma al-wāritha minni (O Allah, make me enjoy my hearing and my sight and leave them to inherit me).”

[Narrated by Al - Hākim in Al - Mustadrak; Sahīh (authentic)]

{Allah has the Most Beautiful Names, so call upon Him by them...}

[Surat al - A‘rāf:180]

This is specially so when we are keen to use the name suitable for the situation and the object of invocation. An example is the supplication by Zakariyya (Zachariah) (peace be upon him):

{And [reme mber] Zachariah, when he cried out to his Lord, “My Lord, do not leave me childless, for You are the Best of Inheritors.”}

[Surat al - Anbiyā’: 89]

Another verse reads:

{And I fear my kinsmen after me, and my wife is barren; so grant me from Yourself an heir , who will inherit [prophethood] from me and from the house of Jacob, and make him, O Lord, well pleasing to You.}

[Surat Maryam: 5 - 6]

The inheritance referred to in the verses is that of knowledge, prophethood, and the call to Allah. It is not an inheritance of wealth. Another example of such blessed inheritance occurs in the verse that says:

{And Solomon inherited David...}

[Surat an - Naml: 16]

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is authentically reported to have said in supplication:

“Allāhumma amti‘ni bisam‘i wa basari waj‘alhuma al - wāritha minni (O Allah, make me enjoy my hearing and my sight and leave them to inherit me).”

[Narrated by Al - Hākim in Al - Mustadrak; Sahīh (authentic)]

In connection with this name, scholars noted that a person should fear Allah Almighty with regard to the rights of inheritance and refrain from being unjust to any rightful heir.

O Allah, we implore You by Your name “Al-Wārith” to maintain our hearing and sight and keep them sound till we die.
