Why should you donate to 99 Orphans Team?

Assalamualikum,

The 99 Orphans team is a group of teenagers who are raising money to sponsor 99 orphans in one year.  When an orphan is sponsored, they get provided with food, shelter and education.  The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) became an orphan at the young age of 6 and he told us to have compassion and be charitable to orphans.

Abu Hurairah (RA) reports that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) stated, “Whoever caresses the head of an orphan (in affection), solely for the sake of Allah, a good deed will be written to his account for every hair over which he passed his hand, and whoever treated an orphan (boy or girl) with goodness and kindness, he and I will be close to each other in Heaven as these two fingers.” The Prophet (SAW made a gesture with his fingers as explained above.

If you want to follow in the footsteps of the Prophet (PBUH) then help the 99 Orphans team.  To sponsor one orphan is $600.  Any amount of money is fine, however.  You are still helping an orphan get food, shelter, and education.  May Allah help the orphans.  Ameen.
