Make trial of orphans until they reach the age of marriage; if then ye find sound judgment in them, release their property to them; but consume it not wastefully, nor in haste against their growing up. If the guardian is well-off, Let him claim no remuneration, but if he is poor, let him have for himself what is just and reasonable. When ye release their property to them, take witnesses in their presence: But all-sufficient is Allah in taking account.
And test the orphans [in their abilities] until they reach marriageable age. Then if you perceive in them sound judgement, release their property to them. And do not consume it excessively and quickly, [anticipating] that they will grow up. And whoever, [when acting as guardian], is self-sufficient should refrain [from taking a fee]; and whoever is poor - let him take according to what is acceptable. Then when you release their property to them, bring witnesses upon them. And sufficient is Allah as Accountant.
And test the orphans until they attain puberty; then if you find in them maturity of intellect, make over to them their property, and do not consume it extravagantly and hastily, lest they attain to full age; and whoever is rich, let him abstain altogether, and whoever is poor, let him eat reasonably; then when you make over to them their property, call witnesses in their presence; and Allah is enough as a Reckoner.
Prove orphans till they reach the marriageable age; then, if ye find them of sound judgment, deliver over unto them their fortune; and devour it not by squandering and in haste lest they should grow up Whoso (of the guardians) is rich, let him abstain generously (from taking of the property of orphans); and whoso is poor let him take thereof in reason (for his guardianship). And when ye deliver up their fortune unto orphans, have (the transaction) witnessed in their presence. Allah sufficeth as a Reckoner.
اور یتمیوں کو بالغ ہونے تک کام کاج میں مصروف رکھو پھر (بالغ ہونے پر) اگر ان میں عقل کی پختگی دیکھو تو ان کا مال ان کے حوالے کردو اور اس خوف سے کہ وہ بڑے ہوجائیں گے (یعنی بڑے ہو کر تم سے اپنا مال واپس لے لیں گے) اس کو فضول خرچی اور جلدی میں نہ اڑا دینا۔ جو شخص آسودہ حال ہو اس کو (ایسے مال سے قطعی طور پر) پرہیز رکھنا چاہیئے اور جو بے مقدور ہو وہ مناسب طور پر (یعنی بقدر خدمت) کچھ لے لے اور جب ان کا مال ان کے حوالے کرنے لگو تو گواہ کرلیا کرو۔ اور حقیقت میں تو خدا ہی (گواہ اور) حساب لینے والا کافی ہے
