Welcome to Orphans Smile
"Who is he that will loan to Allah a beautiful loan? For (Allah) will increase it
manifold to his credit, and he will have a liberal Reward." [Qur'an, 57:11]
Is it just a figure, like any other, that 10,000 children, more than any Tsunami,
earthquake, war or famine, die every single day in India alone? They die from entirely
preventable causes: malnutrition, starvation, and scarcity. Millions of children
go to bed hungry and hopeless.
They are beaten, ill-treated, and half-stomached. Their crime? They have lost their
parents; they are orphans. Do we ever realize, while reciting the holy Book, why
Allah sub'ha nahu ta'ala lays so much emphasis on helping orphans. His Most Exalted
Being has promised, on so many occasions, that those who spend on orphans are the
righteous and hence will be rewarded. Allah the Most Merciful announces:}
"And they feed, for the love of Allah, the indigent, the Orphans, and the captive..."
"And nothing do ye spend in the least (in His cause) but he replaces it: for He
is the Best of those who grant Sustenance." [Qur'an, 34:39]
Should we recite the verses and ignore its message?
We tolerate this outrageous situation by keeping mum. Are we not refusing to act?
No. Every one of us is doing his bit. Nonetheless, it has been known that organised
work is more telling and result oriented. So is charity. It is because of this reason
that we at Orphans Smile are endeavouring to help orphans in every way possible:
providing them home, food, education, treatment, and whatever is needed to make
out of them best human beings who further support our cause. Allah's Prophet and
Messenger, whom peace be upon, tells us that helping orphans is one of many ways
to attain spiritual piety an receive Allah Almighty's grace and bounty.
"Would you like that your heart becomes soft and that you acquire what you need?
Be merciful with the Orphans, pat his head and feed him from what you eat." [At-Tabaraanee
& As-Silsilah as-Saheehah]
One of the greatest rewards is the paradise itself, and that too in the company
of the Holy Prophet himself.
"I and the caretaker of the Orphans will enter Paradise together like this, raising
(by way of illustration) his forefinger and middle finger jointly, leaving no space
in between." [Saheeh al-Bukhaari]
