This idea of an orphan bringing unexpected benefits is not restricted to the person of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace). Once, a man whose heart was weighed down with gloom approached the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) to complain of his state. The holy Prophet advised him to stroke the head of an orphan, and in that simple act he would find tranquillity. (Hadith Ahmad)

AsalamuAlaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
"I and the person who looks after an orphan will be in Paradise together like this..." - then he raised his forefinger and middle finger together.
(Hadith of Bukhari)
