Orphans

2:83 And We took the covenant of the Children of Israel: “You shall not serve except God, and do good to your parents, and regard the relatives, and the orphans, and the needy, and say kind things to the people, and hold the contact prayer, and contribute towards purification.” But then you turned away, except for a few of you; you were objecting.

2:177 Piety is not to turn your faces towards the east and the west, but pious is one who believes in God and the Last Day, and the angels, and the Book, and the prophets, and who gives money out of love to the relatives, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer, and those who ask, and to free the slaves; and who upholds the contact prayer, and who contributes towards purification; and those who keep their pledges when they make a pledge, and those who are patient in the face of adversity and hardship and when in despair. These are the ones who have been truthful, and these are the righteous.

2:215 They ask you about giving: say, “The charity you give shall go to the parents, the relatives, the orphans, the poor, and the traveling alien.” Any good you do, GOD is fully aware thereof.,

2:220 ….. and they ask you regarding the orphans, say: “To fix their situation is best, and if you are to care for them, then they are your brothers.” And God knows the corrupt from the good, and if God had wished He could have made things difficult. God is Noble, Wise.

4:36 And serve God and do not set up anything with Him, and do good to the parents, and the relatives, and the orphans, and the needy, and the neighbor who is a relative, and the neighbor nearby, and the friend nearby, and the wayfarer, and those maintained by your oaths. God does not love the arrogant, the boastful.

89:17 No, you are not generous to the orphan.
89:18 And you do not look to feeding the poor.
89:19 And you consume others inheritance, all with greed.
89:20 And you love money, a love that is excessive.

90:12 Do you know which is the better path?
90:13 The freeing of slaves.
90:14 Or the feeding on a day of great hardship.
90:15 An orphan of relation.
90:16 Or a poor person in need.
90:17 Then he has become one of those who have believed, and exhort one another to patience, and exhort one another to kindness.
90:18 Those are the people of the right.

In the name of God, the Almighty, the Merciful.
93:1 By the late morning.
93:2 And the night when it falls.
93:3 Your Lord has not left you, nor did He forget you.
93:4 And the Hereafter is better for you than the first.
93:5 And your Lord will give you and you will be pleased.
93:6 Did he not find you an orphan and He sheltered you?
93:7 And He found you lost, and He guided you?
93:8 And He found you in need, so He gave you riches?
93:9 As for the orphan, you shall not make him sad.
93:10 And as for the beggar, you shall not reprimand.
93:11 And you shall proclaim the blessings from your Lord.

107:1 Have you seen he who is denying in the system?
107:2 It is the one who mistreats the orphan,
107:3 And the one who does not encourage the feeding of the poor.
107:4 So woe to those who make the contact prayer,
107:5 Who are towards their contact prayer absent minded.
107:6 They only want to be seen,
107:7 And they withhold from any assistance.
