Anas, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) and said:
"Trade with the property of the orphans and then it will not be eaten away by zakat."
Islam protects the weak – like the orphans
- from the hands of the oppressors, and saves their money from loss by its strict legislation and guidance, so it neither lets orphans to be humiliated, nor lets those whose hearts are cruel to spoil their property nor lets the idle people freeze the wealth of the orphans to the extent that it decreases gradually then the orphan remain without money, and then be subject to humiliation and disgrace.
Allah has called the worship and the good deeds a trade, because that is related to the person's immediate and urgent benefits.
The Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) said: " and then it will not be eaten away by zakat." Indicates that it is obligatory to pay the Zakat for the wealth of the orphans, his guardian is obliged to pay it on behalf of the orphanon on the head of every lunar year. It is well known that paying the Zakat while using the wealth in trade will not decrease the wealth.
We conclude from the foregoing: that the care of orphans' money is a social, economic and humanitarian necessity in general, and that zakah is a legitimate duty in money in general terms according to the conditions stipulated in the books of fiqh, such as reaching the Nisab ( minimum amount of money liable to the Zakat ), the passage of one Lunar year and so on.
