What happens to all those children left helpless after disaster strikes or war begins? Many young children are left parentless and must fend for themselves; forgoing a warm meal, a roof over their heads and a safe place to sleep. We have continued and extended our work with orphanages and charities across the globe to provide annual support to children in such circumstances.
An orphan is a person who has lost his father or both his parents before the age of maturity. The Prophet (pbuh) was an orphan too and as such, orphans hold a special place in Islam. Anyone, whom Allah (s.w.t) has chosen to be the guardian of an orphan must be steadfast and must give these rights to the child.
