Why did Allah suddenly forbid adoption?

Adoption of someone else's child as one's own child is the noblest act a person can do. Even Muhammad had an adopted son. Why then did Allah suddenly forbid adoption? What was the reason behind it? What purpose did it serve?

Exact wording doesn't really matter. Tedious too.

Why forbidden?

Saby Robison

What has lust to do with adoption? It is parent-child relationship under the law, not 3-day prostitute-customer relationship.

Allahu Alam
But I'm analyse it was forbidden coz the Muhammed saw was seal of prophet hood and after his saw death new fitna

But that can happen even with biological child... And it does happen, albeit rarely.... There are many risks in life, and if Allah starts banning sources of risk, what shall remain? No, there must be a better reason for Allah's ban on adoption when his own prophet-messenger had an adopted son. Muhammad must have been extremely saddened at that Revelation...

Muhammad wanted to bed zeinab, the wife of his adopted son zaid. So when he married zeinab he was afraid that the Arabs would revolt against him and he would be exposed as since Arabs didn't marry their daughter in laws. So Muhammad had allah conveniently reveal this aura about making adoption haram. Thus a noble tradition was lost to muhammads lusty desires.

Sounds realistic... How did Aisha react?

You think adoption is a good way more than surrogacy, sunny leony also adopted a kid, she is such Nobel woman for saby..

The God of the Bible (the true God) does not forbid adoption. Instead, adoption is a very good thing.

When Allah made that revelation, Aisha (according to hadith) made a sarcastic remark that Allah makes the right revelation to suit Muhammad at the right time.

In what way did that revelation suit Muhammad?

devidas's answer above on this thread sounds most plausible.

Didn't forbid............ Just don't give him your name............. Let him know who really is his or her father.............. Keeping that strait you can adopt with money, love and that is an easier way to Jannah.................

If I don't give him my surname, it is not adoption.

Saby Robison then it is so........... Just giving a name doesn't make someone your son.............. At the same time it doesn't stop you loving and spending for him...........

What nonsense are you arguing? Everyone knows 'Allah' made that 'revelation' to enable Muhammad to marry his adopted son's ex-wife, Zainab.

Saby Robison 3 years

So that is what you are trying to bring it up saby . So why wrap it up and sugar coat it? Lol you people have already hidden agendas and try to act ' i dont know'. The reason why he married his ex-wife was so everyone would know which women one could take in marriage and which one cannot.

So he means Muhammad demonstrated that the followers of Islam could also marry their Daughter-In-Law but first let me Marry my Own (Naughty Muhammad)...

U r lunatic castrated can't understand what the real Islam is
God never abolished adoption but rejected legitimacy of being real son

That means he abolished adoption. You need to understand English.

Adopted son can never be considered as real son that's what Islam says

Saby Robison I thinks all that incest and inbreeding has left this syed guys brain incapable of expressing anything with logic. They just come here with hate for Hindus and Hinduism, not knowing their forefathers were all Hindus, before they descended into this madness called Islam...

Quran says Islam is not for non-Arabs, but these people haven't read the Quran.

Bloody hinduism where even an adopted child can inherit the properties of his adopted parents. These adopted children enjoy legitimacy also. Respect islam.

Allah has actually disqualified non-Arabs from being Muslim. Did you know that?

Allah did not forbid adoption. He simply cleared out the fact that by adopting a child you cannot alter his lineage. You bring up a child, you do not biologically own a child and cannot give him your surname.

What was the context in which that revelation was made?

To cut a long story short, Pedo was a sex maniac. And Allah was his alter ego.
