For The Orphans in Iraq and Afghanistan

Not untill I received word, that an American couple who’s adoption of a Muslim orphan baby (male) became disrupted in Egypt on suspicion of kidnapping. Adoption within the World of Quran is fairly without precedence, sooner we think about South America and Asian Countries, but the sheer number of Orphans in Iraq places us for a new Moral dilemma within our Spiritual Realm to which our Guidelines never seen to before, because Family is the fold Community is The Environment and our Village is the House of Allah in which we all live.
Coming from a Western Country and being a mother of a 25 year old Son, daughter of 23, I never knew the inner pain of a couple wishing to be with child and not achieving so. Our Christian Belief to procreate is one which hands us a Spiritual Pain making us feel inaduquate in the eyes of our perception of our Spiritual Path. To adopt a child will answer our Spirit and silence the torture we feel towards our Path. Our Emotions have been trained to experience adoption as a guideline reading into family making it legally possible for couples to adopt. However the path towards adoption is tedious and under constant supervision of Government agencies who first have to decide on couples qualification to adopt.
We Women of the World want to ask our Spiritual teachers, to look to The Quran as a Pathway to better being, and in this context, do I wish to plea the fate of our Orphans of War who’s relatives can no longer maintain what Quran perscribes, becasue our means have grown to thin to feed, dress, and otherwise bring up another relative who’s need for shelter and care are natural and known to us, but we cannot comply. At the other hand there is the sheer number of victims of war and terrorism, which makes it necesary in the name of all those orphans, that we raise this issue within our Spiritual Community, and we ask from our Path Miders that they look into this Spirititual matter which pains our motherhood and fatherhood across the Globe in compassion for these orphans who are our relatives in The Family of Mankind.
As Western World has become unhinged from the old way Family looks after their own, because Fostering or adopting will not add another branch to our family tree. Our Book of Quran prohibits adoption and explains our truthfull perception of this biological bond to be unique and unbreakble in the case of close relatives and unable to be implanted into another family as such.
870.000 Orphans in Iraq must count or weigh heavy enough on our conscience, to open up this matter in our Spiritual Community, to teach our Community Quran.
Specially orphans as the result of War in Sharia of our Community do take the toll to teach us to widen our horizon and open up our hearts and minds to this issue transgression on the innocent who now lack the care of Community in situation family, and who are being kept in orphanage which resembles the Communist and Western way of inheriting family life and or looking after Orphans (elderly too).
To be honest I do not belong to any Religious School in specific. I feel connected to All the Worlds people and nobody in particular. Therefore do I respect the Muslim World as mty Family just as much as I respect the Tribes Individual way of life on all continents.
Forgive when I trespass on Sharia and The Quran. I am convinced our living bond transcends Centuries old books, which wrote our Guidelines in a Time, we knew less and could do less for our community World Wide.
