Is looking after the orphan that

Taking on the responsibility of guardianship over an orphan continues till the orphan reaches the age of puberty. However, if the orphan reaches the age of puberty, but is still poor or needy, the guardian's support of the orphan is considered to be Sadaqah (voluntary charity) paid to a poor or needy person; not taking on the task of guardianship over the orphan. Accordingly, whoever assumes the guardianship of an orphan for a complete year after which the orphan reaches puberty, then this person is considered to have assumed full guardianship of the orphan and is promised the great reward that is mentioned the Hadith, In sha’a-Allah (if Allah wills). However, this person will be less rewarded than the one who assumed the guardianship of an orphan for a longer time. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions. (Part No. 14; Page No. 243)
