pakistani couple wants to adopt baby

we are pakistani couple lives in tabuk ... we want to adopt Syrian or Palestinian baby ..can any body tell me possibility and all legalities

That's such a nice thought. However, I had read some months back that ministry has banned Saudi families to adopt Syrian child.

i m not saudi i m pakistani

The point is when they can't let Saudi families to adopt children, how will they let expat people to adopt a child.

May be they have a lenient law for expats on such things. Good luck for you :)

Adoption is rare in Saudi Arabia and it's a matter which I'd count as a major one. The cases are put to courts, medical tests are taken and verdicts are issued. Rather then googling or social networking, I'd suggest to talk to an attorney. In almost all cities, there are legal firms who would provide the required advice/info.

in pakistan thr is orphan houses but what happens here is mystery..first i have to find orphan baby then concern any attorney....plus i will leave saudia next year and still dnt know how it is possible...i need war effected baby only

Hi Yadgaar,
I already posted some important details in your inbox, regarding the process I suggest you contact/visit an orphanage (دار الأيتام) directly and ask for it.

Good advice. But what I've heard is that they offer yearly sponsorship options but don't let you adopt and take a child home.

You have heard correct, yearly sponsorship is through charity organizations seeking for donations, while child adaptation is legally allowed and available with conditions. Its not a normal practice here that's why there is little info online. While I am not sure its available for expats, but I know below conditions for sure:-
a) adopted child will keep his/her original name, you cant give your name, or family name to the adopted
b) legal custody of child will be completed through court
c) adopted child even sponsored has a fixed income from govt

Same here but I'd say 'unluckily'. I've missed some interesting *insights*. :)

Bro there are so many Pakistani Kids need adoption.... You may do that and even that will be easy. Go to Pakistan, adopt a child, do the paper work with nadra and bring him in as your son/daughter.

Assalam alaikum.

I have been recently in KSA from UK and adopted a boy from Karachi - through Edhi Foundation, whilst I was in UK. Alhamdolillah a very rewarding experience.

I am too very much interested in adopting a Syrian refugee baby. Children are children and every child is as lovely as the other and has the same rights for a good life. It all depends on what intention one has in his heart and that should be respected in all circumstances. Just my thoughts......

I would be very obliged Mr Yadgaar or Mr Ehtesham - if you can share any further information.

Kind regards and Jazakallahuma Khairan.

Adaption is illegal here in KSA.

Hi

sorry, you are wrong, we can raise a child like your son, he or she will not inherit your name

I think it is a myth that adoption is illegal in KSA and also the fact that is not allowed in Islam......this is probably, the word "adoption" should be used interchangeably with "guardianship"....which may represent it better in Islam, as one has to comply with the Shariah rulings in this regard.....including keeping the child's name, he does not inherit your inheritance by virtue (although a 3rd can be specified for him) and one should keep in mind ideally to develop a "mahram" relationship with the mother by feeding (this works if child is less than 2 years).........

Disclaimer: I am not an expert in this field nor an Islamic scholar, but I am sharing my personal experience in this matter.

I have come to know some local Saudis who have adopted, although I have heard it is a long, complicated and vigorous process through the courts. But the same we experienced in the UK. It took us two years from applying to getting the child, involving a very detailed "home study" looking at family background, socio-economic, cultural and religious affiliation, personal and professional references....etc...etc....as this being "inter-country adoption", we had to obtain adoption orders from Pakistan first, as Pakistan is not a signed member of "Hague Convention", and on arrival in the UK, the whole process was repeated in UK courts.

Coming to the issue of adopting a Syrian refugee child, it is not at all simple. As mentioned above, it is banned in KSA for Saudis, but no idea what is the status for expatriates. Secondly, the Syrian refugees displacement is on-going and the UN is not allowing any adoption from refugee camps at the moment. The reason is, they would prefer to trace family or near relatives first before giving the child for adoption. If family or near relatives cannot be traced for two years, only then the child is being considered for adoption. Alternatively, if the child's parents or immediate family gives up the child for adoption than it is possible.

Again, I must say that, I do not want to discourage anyone, as I believe if one has a good intention, one should keep trying to find a way, do "istekhara" and leave it to Allah SWT to guide you and make it easy. "where there is a will, there is a way"  :)

Asa.please let us know of any authentic info u get? As we are also Interested in adopting a Syrian refugee orphan.
