Sahl ibn Sa’d reported: The Prophet, peace, and blessings be upon him, said, “Myself and the caretaker of an orphan will be in Paradise like this,” and he held his two fingers together.

The emotional, social and physical development of young children has a direct effect on their overall development. The need to invest in every young child is so important to maximize their future well-being. Orphans living in orphanages equally deserve to obtain the rights of dignity, movement, and social security.
Recent studies of early childhood investments have shown remarkable success and indicate that the early years are important for early learning. Moreover, early childhood interventions of high quality have lasting effects on learning and motivation.
The Islamic tradition of child sponsorship or guardianship, called kafala, is a long-held child care practice throughout Islamic countries and societies and is consistent with Sharī’a law.
Your donation can help to provide orphans with nutritious meals, clothes, healthcare, and education, and a dedicated guardian – all in a loving and caring home in many countries around the world. We also assist them to become Hafiz e Quran and to serve humanity as per the principles of Islam. It only costs £1a day to sponsor an Orphan or to sponsor a Hafiz e Quran in three years. As a society, It is our responsibility to look after these children as we cannot afford to postpone investing in them until they become adults or cross the minor age. Let’s be united to become the ray of hope for these innocent faces.
From Sahl bin Sa’ad (may Allah be pleased with him), he said: “The Messenger of Allah sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said:
“I and the one who looks after an orphan will be like this in Paradise,” showing his middle and index fingers and separating them.” [Sahih al-Bukhari]
This great hadith indicates the magnitude and virtue of the person sponsoring orphans so that Imam al-Bukhari rahimahullaah puts it in the chapter: The Virtue of the People Who Care for the Orphans.
