Question: If a person asks to adopt a child from the orphanage, is it permitted for those in charge to give him what he wants? Answer: Praise be to Allah. 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. Allah nullified it in the Quran 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 Allah preserve you. From Fataawa Samahat al-Shaykh Muhammad ibn Ibraaheem (may Allah have mercy on him)

Wow. Balance2000 commented almost same answer as I did.Prsonally, I also think that adoption is really good, because that is saving one of the children's life. I also think that the people who is adopting people, should be prepared to be a good parents. Is there any other opinions? I want to share our thought about the adoption in our life.

ASA Adoption of orphans is a blessing. If you can help someone you should do so. Why would you neglect a child? When you adopt a child it's no different from giving birth. You feed them, cloth them and they are under your roof. Sometimes they look like you; more than your blood relatives.

Hello.. I looked at your blog, and I suddenly had a question. Does Allah said adoption is wrong? or is it just permitted when a child is taught by Islam? For my personal opinion, adoption is always OK, because it is helping a poor child who does not have thier parents or lost their parents.Actually I do not know much of Quaran yet, so whould you please state your opinion again according to my question? -Does it really matter that we should adopt only a trained with Islam child? can we make a child to choose to believe or not ? please feel free to anser back.. I am really curious about the fact of permitting adoption.. thank you,
