To: The noble brother – A.K.A.J. – may Allaah facilitate for you your affairs
as-Salaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullaahe wa Barakaatuhu, to proceed:
Your correspondence reached me consisting of:
Your question about the children of the women who were raped in Bosnia and Herzegovina and your need for beneficial [Islaamic] books.
It pleases me to send you a copy of my book «Majmoo’ Fataawa wa Maqaalaat Mutanawwi’ah» and «al-‘Aqeedah al-Waasitiyyah» and the book «Fat.h al-Majeed Sharh Kitaab at-Tawheed» and «al-Usool ath-Thalaathah» and «al-‘Aqeedah at-Tahaawiyyah» and «at-Tahqeeq wal-Eedhaah» – it is hoped Allaah will cause you to benefit from them [in shaa.-Allaah].
As regards the issue concerning the children, then it is obligatory upon the Muslims to take charge/custody of them and bring them up with Islaamic manners, and not leave them for the Christians and other than them, as Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) says:
and He (sal-Allaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said:
…as their ruling is that of orphans (without fathers), and Allaah has legislated kindness and charity to the orphans specifically.
I ask Allaah for you and for all the Muslims that he facilitates the affairs and guides to all that is good.
was-Salaam ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullaahe wa Barakaatuhu
