Orphans lead a very challenging life, these children suffer a lot. They don't find any guide around them, they badly feel unwanted, society does not give them equal status as comparing to those children who have parents.
Orphan And Islam
According to Islam, all children have the right to be clothed fed and protected until they are adults, to receive love and affection from their parents. When children become orphans their rights do not end, we people and society are responsible for protecting the rights of orphans.
In Quran; Allah orders:
"So, put not pressure over orphan." Surah Adh-Dhuha : Ayat 9
"And do not approach the property of the orphans but in the best way, until he reaches the maturity and fill up the measure and weight with justice." Surah Al-An'am : Ayat 152
"Those who consume the property of orphans unjustly, they fill in their belies with fire only, and they shall soon enter into the flaming fire." Surah An-Nisaa : Ayat 10
Sayings Of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) regarding orphans:
"Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) stated, "The most loved homes to God, mighty & sublime, are homes in which the orphan is honored."
Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) raised his index and middle fingers and said: "And he who treats an orphan with kindness will be as close to me in Paradise as these two fingers."
A man once came to the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), and complained that he feels hardness in his heart. The Messenger of Allah said, what translated means, "Would you like that your heart becomes soft and that you acquire what you need? Be merciful with the orphan, pat his head and feed him from what you eat. This will soften your heart, and enable you to get what you need."
