The Prophet, صلى الله عليه وسلم, said, “The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this,” and he held his two fingers together to illustrate. [Bukhari]
There is a huge parallel between raising an orphan and fostering a child. They are similar in ways that we do not often think about. How much importance do we place on the subject of fostering? Is there a need for foster parents in the Muslim community?
Join us for a workshop on Thursday, August 9, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, to learn more about foster caregiving, and how to become a foster caregiver. Get all your questions answered by a panel of speakers including social workers from a fostering agency, and Muslims who are currently involved in foster care. RSVP here.
