Adopting a baby

Adoption is prohibited in Islam, since it affects the lineage of the family. Therefore UAE nationals and Muslims cannot adopt a child, nor give the child their family name. However, Islam does permit Muslims to care for and look after an abandoned child or orphan.

Resident expatriate couples from other religions, who do not have children of their own can adopt a child usually from a developing country, after complying with all regulations regarding adoption. Your respective embassy/consulate will have rules which should be complied with in the adoption process. While there are no formal adoption agencies in Dubai, you can seek professional support and advice from the Adoption Support Group, Synergy Medical Centre or Human Relations Institute.
