Why Orphans?

“They ask you (O Muhammad Sallallahu Allaihi Wasallam), what they should spend, Say: “ Whatever you spend of good must be for parents and kindered and orphans and al-masakin (the needy) and the wayfarer and whatever you do of good deeds, truly, Allah knows it well”)” (Quran; 2:215)

“……. And they ask you concerning orphans, say: “The best thing is to work honestly in their property, and if you mix

your affairs with theirs, then they are your brothers…..Truly, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise” (Quran: 2: 220).

“Amesema Mtume (s.a.w), "Mimi na mwenye kulea yatima tutakuwa pamoja peponi kama kidole cha shahada na cha
kati." (Tirmidhy)” .
