Orphans are people who have lost their parents or both of their parents before they reach adulthood.

The rights and duties given in comprehensive orphanage cover the following:

33: 5

Call them by the [names] of their ancestors: it is in the sight of Allah ... ..

33: 6

Blood relationships with each other have a close personal relationship, in Allah's Decision


To orphans with relationship demands ..

Islamic law guarantees the child's rights to life, as well as hereditary rights and associations with his father, so he is not subject to ambiguity, and consequently, loss of other rights, such as expenses and inheritance.

This is in line with the Quranic injunction that commanded: "To spread their true seed. That would be more fair to God. And if you do not know their ancestors, then they are your brothers in the faith and your friends. ”[Al-Ahzab: 5].

The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: "If a person claims to be the son of someone other than his father, he will be rejected by Heaven." [Bukhari: Book # 59, Hadith # 616]. Thus, Islam is guaranteed to children, orphans or otherwise, its alliance with biological father and its categories. She will not be left in a society with an unknown relationship.

[Duha: 6]

"Did He not find you an orphan and protect you?"

In Islam, orphans have the basic right to foster an environment and supportive home. What an orphan needs in this life is a home that protects and cares for. The child will not be neglected, materially and morally. Therefore, it is necessary to find adequate shelter for each orphan or minor.

The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said, "The best house of the Muslims is the shelter of orphans, and the house of evil worship is the abode of abused orphans."

Every child has the right to be raised by a mother (if alive) or by any responsible person who will provide guidance. It involves caring for the child emotionally and physically. Children need to be nurtured, loved, cared for. They must be taught good Islamic morals, disciplined and taught to distinguish right from wrong. This is to ensure that the child develops into a good community member who will positively benefit the people around him.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

"The orphan will enter heaven together like this, raising (by way of illustration) his index finger and middle finger together leaving no space in between." (Saheeh-al-Bukhari)

[Ad-Duha: 7]

"And He sees you traveling, and He gives you guidance."

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH), guided the Nations to raise their children in Islamic values ​​and principles, from a young age. Orphans, educated in the right religion, morals and ethics and useful knowledge will benefit not only themselves but the nation as a whole.

(Surah an-Nisā '4: 2)

“And give unto them that are rich in their substance, and exchange them not for that which is of no worth, neither eat the precious things of yourselves; this is a great sin. “

If the orphan's parents are left with the property, it is very important that the guardian keep it until the child is older, and give it to them. One cannot use what the orphan has unless he intends to invest it in something that will benefit the child as he ages. Whatever happens, an orphan must be given every penny of what they have. Misunderstanding eating orphan wealth is God's wrath.

(Al-Quran Al-nisa 10)

"Indeed, those who eat orphans unjustly consume only their bellies and they will be burned with fire."


Do not approach the orphan's property except to repair it, until he reaches a full age; and fulfilling all engagement, for [each] engagement will be questioned [on the day of reckoning].

(Surat an-Nisa ': 6)

4: 6: Keep an eye on orphans until they reach the marriage age, then if you realize that they have a good judgment on their property. Do not use it excessively and take it before they grow up. The rich should stay away from everything. The poor should use it wisely and correctly. When you hand over their property to them, make sure there is a witness on their behalf. God is quite a Reckoner.

93: 9 (Duha)

'Therefore, do not treat orphans with violence, ..'

This right is deserved by an orphan, on the grounds that he is a young person who has not yet reached adulthood. In Islamic Law, there are lasting instructions to show compassion and kindness to children.

Abdullah Ibn Amr Ibn Al-Aas: recounting that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said:

[Al-Hakim: 1/131]

"Whoever does not love our children and does not know the rights of our parents, he is not one of us."

Al Fajr: 17

No! But you don't respect orphans ... '

93: 9 (Duha)

'Therefore, do not treat orphans with violence, ..'

Orphans not only have the right to support and nurture love, they also have the right to dignity.

In one verse, Allah (SWT) suggests that one who neglects orphans is not a true believer.

Al Ma'un: 1-2

'Have you ever seen anyone who denies the Deen [religion]? That's why people drive out orphans'.

In another, Allah (SWT) describes the righteous in heaven as those who look after orphans during their earthly lives.

Al Insan: 8

'And they [the righteous] give food in spite of love to the needy, orphans, and prisoners ...'

Sponsoring a non-Muslim orphan:
This is the greatness of this religion to non-Muslim children; if they do not have someone, their own religion, to support them, it is permissible for them to be supported by the Muslims so that they will not disappear. Sponsorship of non-Muslim orphans is a guardian's duty, in general, and for sponsoring non-Muslim children is an indication of Islamic tolerance and solidarity with others. as long as they are safe, not fighters.

Home Based Orphan Services

Poor candidates with good guard and home environment will be supported through the 'Home Base' scheme, providing them with the necessary amenities such as bicycles or school bus fares, room lights, reading desks and chairs. In this way, not only will it reduce the cost of operating the orphanage, but the candidates will not be deprived of their basic needs. Regular visits and programs are organized to visit them. There are currently 80 students under the service.

Financial Services

YAATIM spends about RM1.5 million a year. The main income comes from public donations. YAATIM also received a grant from the Social Welfare Department of RM8 a head per day for food. This number depends on the number of current residents.


A one-storey shop building near Ranau Mosque has been rented and renovated. A total of 10 orphans and poor men were taken in early 2007 and now the home has 25 residents with 5 full-time staff. The Zainuddin Foundation also contributed to this project in the early stages.


The house is located in an old unused mosque building, Kg Mosque. Bukit Sekilau, Kuantan. The repair and renovation work was carried out in early 2008, but began operating on March 1, 2010. The first intake was 10 orphans and poor girls. The staff on duty comprises a manager and 2 wardens.


The house is located in a two-storey school building in Kg. Rock Stump, Short, Kedah. The building was refurbished and renovated and began operating on January 1, 2009 with the recruitment of 5 orphans and poor men. Recruitment does not increase due to shortage of staff but will be increased as appropriate. For now only a warden is in charge.
