Spoken word: Lamees Abrahams

lamees abrahams11-year-old Lamees Abrahams popped into our studios this week to share a spoken-word poem she wrote in dedication to the orphan children from Syria and around the world. This fifth grader’s emotive performance certainly moved us!

If you’re keen on sponsoring an orphan, there are various registered charities you can look to. As good deeds go, caring for orphans is pretty well placed in Islam. As Imam Bukhari narrated, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:

‘”I and the custodian of an orphan are like this (together) in Paradise”, and he joined his forefinger and middle finger together.’
