Orphans are those who have lost one or both the parents. Many orphans have no source of income and/or a guardian to take care of them. Due to poverty, countless families are unable to get their young, orphan daughters and sisters married. This is where we have to step in and aid them. Islam protects the rights of orphans as they are more at risk of being oppressed.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said,"I and the person who looks after an orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like this," putting his index and middle fingers together.”
