Is it permissible for me to trade

A: If the situation is as you mentioned, it is not permissible for you to make loans from the orphans' money, whether to the man you mentioned or anybody else, and whether or not he intends to repay them an excess or not. It is however, permissible for you to request someone to trade with that money for a known percentage of the profit, such as 50% or something like that, provided that they are trustworthy.
