Abstract

Child adoption is a social phenomenon that occurs in the community for generations since long. His position in the family differs from one region to another depending on customs and adoption systems embraced by the local community. In Islamic view, the adoption of a child may be justified insofar as it is done for parenting, not linking the nasab (blood relationship) and inheritance between the child and the adoptive parent. This study, in addition to revealing the typology of adopted children according to the Qur'an, reveals the rights of the child adoption in the family, especially related to the property rights of foster parents. The approach used is the tafsir maudhu'i method, by collecting all the Qur'anic verses relating to adopted children and their civil rights.
