Course Overview

Many think that “adoption” is un-Islamic; that there are “too many issues” arising adopting; or that it is “way too difficult” to adopt.

Love and care of others and those in need is a central principle in Islam. He explains the importance of consulting when adopting. Ending by giving counsel on the practical aspect of adopting in the modern age.
