Orphan Aid

Care for an Orphan

Nurturing an orphan with essentials such as healthy food, medical care, clean clothes, and access to education not only provides them with a protective environment but also empowers them to reach their full potential. The act of orphan sponsorship in Islam holds a special place, as it resonates with the life of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was himself an orphan, and encouraged us to assist the orphan. As it is mentioned in a tradition, he said:

“I and the person who takes care of an orphan will be together like this in Paradise.” [then he raised his index and middle finger together] -  Bukhari

By participating in MAA’s 1 to 1 Orphan Care program, you're not just making a charitable contribution; you're following in the sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Our initiative ensures that every child under our care, whether across Africa, Asia, or the Middle East, including Palestine, Yemen, Ghana, Indonesia, Pakistan, or Uganda, receives:

  • Food Packs
  • Clothing
  • Comprehensive Medical Treatment
  • Educational support

MAA is deeply committed to supporting orphans around the world through our Orphan Aid General Support Programme and other welfare projects. Whether you're curious about our sponsoring an orphan, seeking to contribute your sadaqah, or wondering how zakah can be utilised for such noble causes, MAA offers a range of options to support.
