(Waarith). The perfect inheritor of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (May the Salutations of Allah be upon him and Peace). Among the friends of Allah the warith is the one who dedicates himself exclusively to Allah through the Sacred Law. Such sincere following of Allah's Law eventually leads to great openings within the heart. Allah opens up for His friend the understanding of what He sent down upon His Messenger and Prophet, Muhammad al Mustapha. Allah discloses Himself within the inward dimensions of His truthful friend. This is the entire structure of the Science of the higher teaching. Through honouring and respecting everything which Allah Almighty has sent to His humanity, and by sincerely following, obeying and loving Allah and His Beloved, the seeker, the 'one who desires Allah' (murid) is transformed into the 'one whom Allah desires' (murad). Allah showers His Infinite Grace and Mercy upon the 'one whom He Himself desires'.
Islam means peace and the person who follows this peace is called the Muslim. From another root meaning of the word, Islam means complete submission and surrender, and the person who submits and surrenders himself to the will of his Lord is the person who has accepted Allah as his Creator, Sustainer, Lord and the Master of the Day of Judgement.
So from both the definitions Islam means a way of life for people who have opted to follow peace as opposed to chaos, order as opposed to disorder, discipline as opposed to indiscipline, submission as opposed to refusal, surrender as opposed to insolence, obedience as opposed to disobedience etc. All these things combined together to define Islam as away of life by which a person becomes a follower of peace and not a follower of chaos. And the followers of peace are the Muslims whose duty it is: "to establish peace and what is good, and to prevent chaos and what is evil, and they are the best people." (Al-Qur'an 3:110)
