The Prophet Muhammad " peace be upon him " at one time said that a person who cares for an orphaned child are likely to be in Paradise with him, and motioned to show that they would be as close as two fingers of a particular hand. An orphan himself, Muhammad paid special attention to the care of children. He himself adopted a former slave and raised him with the exact same care as if he were his own son. However, the Qur'an offers specific rules in relation to the legal relationship between a child as well as his/her adoptive friends. The child's biological family can never be hidden; their bonds to the child are never severed.
