What is the Importance of Orphans in Islam?

Rida Ghaffar  .  Tuesday November 12, 2019

Being a Muslim it is our duty to protect others from any kind of harm and help those who are in need such as orphans. Islam has laid great great importance on helping the needy. Following are the few reminders regarding the reward for helping orphans.

“And they feed, for the love of Allah, the poor, the orphan, and the captive…” [Soorah al-Insaan, 8]  

The unprivileged, parent deprived kids, are termed ‘Yatim’ in the Holy Quran. They are called orphans which literally stands for children who have been abandoned or ones with deceased parents. Islam being the religion of peace and tranquility endorses the significance of looking after these kids. Moreover, in the Quran, the topic on orphans has been mentioned for over twenty times and is also signified by the Hadith and Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH) countlessly.

 As per the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) mentioned in Saheeh al-Bukhaari:

“I and the caretaker of the orphan will enter Paradise together like this, raising (by way of illustration) his forefinger and middle finger jointly, leaving no space in between.” [Saheeh al-Bukhaari]

People who bring up orphans have great value in the sight of Allah (SWT) and will gain great reward on the day of judgement. 

Many initiatives have been taken, such as the one by Human Concern International (HCI), to shelter and protect these orphans. If anyone wants to donate for the noble cause of lessening the pain and endeavors of an orphaned child, HCI is the to go organization as it works for the betterment of these children, to provide them an auspicious prospect at a good and healthy life. There is also an event coming up, Honour the Orphan, on 1st December 2019 in Ottowa.
