Orphan Rights (4:126 – 4:127)

[4:126] To GOD belongs everything in the heavens and the earth. GOD is in full control of all things.
[4:127] They consult you concerning women: say, “GOD enlightens you regarding them, as recited for you in the scripture. You shall restore the rights of orphaned girls whom you cheat out of their due dowries when you wish to marry them: you shall not take advantage of them. The rights of orphaned boys must also be protected as well. You shall treat the orphans equitably. Whatever good you do, GOD is fully aware thereof.”

In a society poor, homeless orphans are probably the lowest member of society with the least amount of rights and the easiest to be taken advantage of. God puts special emphasis to provide rights to this class of individuals. The only person in society with probably less rights then these are the unborn child.
