Do you need to be married to adopt a child? or can you adopt and raise them by yourself?

أنا أعرف ان التبني محرم و لكن ,هل يجوز مثل للرجل أو المرأة أن تكفل/يكفل اليتيم للوحده/وحدها؟

The question has been closed for the following reason "The question is answered, right answer was accepted" by Bibi Amina Nov 24 '13 at 17:24

Only requirement in Islam is that you do not give the child your family name. You must tell the child names of her parents and where they live if they are still alive. You must always call the child with his name son of (father and mother) and not hide from information about the child's parents. Adapted child has no right in your property after you die. Only your biological children have right in your property after your death. However, you can give to adapted child during your life upto 1/3rd of your total property if you so desire. After your death only your biological children have right on your remaining property.

Raising some one's child is great act of kindness and mercy and Allah rewards heavily to those who raise some one else's child without any interest in the property of child if his/her parents left any property for that child.
