~~~ ASalam aleikum wa rehamtulah wa barakatuhu brothers and sisters in islam :) :) ~~~

InshaAllah hoping you are all in the best of health and imaan.


Allah Subh'hana wa Taala says in the Qu'ran

Surah Baqarah (2) Verse 215

THEY WILL ASK thee as to what they should spend on others. Say: "Whatever of your wealth you spend shall [first] be for your parents, and for the near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer; and whatever good you do, verily, God has full knowledge thereof."


Surah An - Nisa (4) Verse 2

Hence, render unto the orphans their posses sions, and do not substitute bad things [of your own] for the good things [that belong to them], and do not consume their possessions together with your own: [2] this, verily, is a great crime.


Sahih Al - Bukhari Hadith
Volume 8, Book 73, Number 34:
Narrated Sahl bin Sa'd:

The Prophet (sallalahu alayhi wa salam) 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.


Sahih Al - Bukhari Hadith
Volume 8, Book 73, Number 41:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet (sallalahu alayhi wa salam) said, "If any Muslim plants any plant and a human being or an animal eats of it, he will be rewarded as if he had given that much in charity."


Brothers and sisters, below are a few websites where we can sponsor orphans, may Allah subh'hana wa taala accept our ibadaah and forgive our sins ameen.

Waleikum salam wa rehamtulah wa barakatuhu :) :)
