They are sponsoring an orphan and he gets a lot of charity

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
There is an orphan whose family died, and we are taking care of him and looking after him, and we regard him as one of our children. As he has paternal uncles and people who wish him well, they give him money and we put this money with our money from which we spend on the household, but it may be more than we spend on him. What is the ruling on that?.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

There is nothing wrong with you taking the charity that is given to him, if it is like what you spend on him or less. But if it is more than that, then you have to keep it for him, and remember that there is a great reward for looking after him and treating him kindly. End quote. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
