  3. Prior to the Islamic era, the orphan was an often overlooked or ignored member of society. When the light of Islam dawned, Allah ﷻ elevated the status of this helpless individual.

    “They ask you (O Muhammad ) what they should spend. Say: Whatever you spend of good must be for parents and kindred and orphans and al-Masakin (the poor) and the wayfarers, and whatever you do of good deeds, truly, Allah knows it well.” (Qur’an, 2:215)

    The fact that Allah ﷻ speaks about kindness towards the orphans alongside mentioning kindness towards ones parents and family is not merely coincidental. He does so to show us that the care we provide to an orphan must be at par with the care we provide to our loved ones. Just as we would ensure the physical, mental and emotional well-being of our children and our parents, we must ensure the same level of well-being for any orphan we take into our care. Such was the situation in the traditional Muslim world. For a long time there were no traditional orphanages and instead, orphans were given to philanthropic individuals who would love and care for them as they would for their own children.
