He explained, managing the property of orphans must be carried out carefully in order to foster peace in the soul of a Muslim.
“Managing the properties of orphans is a good deed if it is carried out in the right way and of course those who do it will get a reward from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. Allah promises heaven and blessings for those who sincerely manage the properties of orphans properly,” he added.
Imam Yakhsyallah emphasized that the management of orphans’ properties must be in accordance with Islamic laws.
“Because the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is an example for mankind. He really loves and cares for orphans. We must take his example to be careful in managing orphans’ properties,” he said.
Imam Yakhsyallah said, it is fine to use orphan properties for business as long as the purpose is to develop their wealth and also get the orphan’s approval.
