    Adoption in Islam...

    Report bad ads?

    AssalamuAlaykum

    Basically Happy and I were just talking etc etc and she wants me to adopt her insha'Allah when I get married. But the thing is, Happy and the fish will be non-mehram so they'd have to treat each other as such right? Basically covering infront of him fully etc etc...is that right? And actually, is adoption even allowed in Islam? Like it'd be difficult fulfilling them conditions whilst living together right?

    Me and the sis were just messing but I'm just wondering anyway since there's many orphaned Muslim children around the world unfortunately and it'd be great to adopt one. SubhanAllah

    WassalamuAlaykum

    Re: Adoption in Islam...



    Adoption is allowed in Islam.

    Adoption is of two types – forbidden and prescribed.

    If a person asks to adopt a child from the orphanage, is it permitted for those in charge to give him what he wants?

    Praise be to Allaah.
    Adoption of children is of two types, forbidden and not forbidden.
    The forbidden type means adopting a child in the sense that the child is considered to be the child of the adopting parent and subject to the rulings on children. This is not permitted. Allaah nullified it in the Qur’aan when He said (interpretation of the meaning):
    “…nor has He made your adopted sons your real sons…”
    [al-Ahzaab 33:4]
    The kind which is prescribed and may be mustahabb means being kind towards the child and giving him a righteous religious upbringing and sound direction, teaching him that which will benefit him in this world and the next. But it is not permitted to hand a child over except to one who is known to be trustworthy, religiously-committed and of good character, who will take care of the child’s interests. He should also be a local resident, so that he will not take the child away to a country where his presence may be a cause for his religious commitment being lost in the future. If these conditions are met in the case of both the child and the adopting parent, then it is OK to hand over a foundling whose parentage is not known. May Allaah preserve you

    AssalamuAlaykum

    JazakAllah khayr sis, so from what I understood of that....it depends on the intention then does it? based on:

    The forbidden type means adopting a child in the sense that the child is considered to be the child of the adopting parent and subject to the rulings on children.
    AND

    But it is not permitted to hand a child over except to one who is known to be trustworthy, religiously-committed and of good character, who will take care of the child’s interests. He should also be a local resident, so that he will not take the child away to a country where his presence may be a cause for his religious commitment
    But I dont really see the difference? You can adopt but NOT think of the child as your own? *confuzzled*

    Re: Adoption in Islam...

    ohh I hope you find a little one to adopt! I have been planning on adopting children since I was very young. I went through a phase where I wanted my own children, but the truth is there are just too many children out in the world that need homes. I can't possible deny this!
