Test the orphans until they reach the marriageable age. Then, if you perceive in them proper understanding, hand their property over to them, and do not consume it extravagantly and hastily, lest they should grow up. Whoever is rich should abstain (from using it for himself), and whoever is poor may have from it (to the extent of his necessary need) with fairness. So, when you hand their property over to them, make witnesses upon them. Allah is sufficient for reckoning

— Mufti Taqi Usmani

And try the orphans until they reach (the) marriageable age. So, in case you perceive in them right-mindedness then pay over to them their riches, and do not eat them up extravagantly and in anticipation of their (attaining) majority. And whoever is rich, then let him keep abstaining, (i.e. let him abstain generously) and whoever is poor, then let him eat (of it) with beneficence. So, when you pay over to them their riches, then take witnesses over them; and Allah suffices as Ever-Reckoner.

— Dr. Ghali

Test orphans until they reach marriageable age; then, if you find they have sound judgement, hand over their property to them. Do not consume it hastily before they come of age: if the guardian is well off he should abstain from the orphan’s property, and if he is poor he should use only what is fair. When you give them their property, call witnesses in; but God takes full account of everything you do.

— Abdul Haleem

Prove orphans till they reach the marriageable age; then, if ye find them of sound judgment, deliver over unto them their fortune; and devour it not by squandering and in haste lest they should grow up Whoso (of the guardians) is rich, let him abstain generously (from taking of the property of orphans); and whoso is poor let him take thereof in reason (for his guardianship). And when ye deliver up their fortune unto orphans, have (the transaction) witnessed in their presence. Allah sufficeth as a Reckoner.

— Pickthall

Make trial of orphans until they reach the age of marriage; if then ye find sound judgment in them, release their property to them; but consume it not wastefully, nor in haste against their growing up. If the guardian is well-off, Let him claim no remuneration, but if he is poor, let him have for himself what is just and reasonable. When ye release their property to them, take witnesses in their presence: But all-sufficient is Allah in taking account.

— Yusuf Ali

Етимларни то балоғат ёшига етгунларича имтиҳон қилиб (текшириб) туринглар. Агар уларнинг эс-ҳушлари жойида эканини кўрсангиз, молларини ўзларига топширинглар. У молларни исроф қилиб ва (эгалари) катта бўлиб қолмасин, деб шошилиб еб қўйманглар. (Етимни оталиққа олган киши) агар бой бўлса, (етимнинг молидан) парҳез қилсин. Бордию камбағал бўлса, яхшилик билан (яъни, қилган хизматига яраша) олиб есин. Мол-мулкларини ўзларига қайтарганингизда эса гувоҳ келтиринглар. Аллоҳнинг Ўзи етарли ҳисоб-китоб қилгувчидир.

— Alauddin Mansour

And test the orphans [in their abilities] until they reach marriageable age. Then if you perceive in them sound judgement, release their property to them. And do not consume it excessively and quickly, [anticipating] that they will grow up. And whoever, [when acting as guardian], is self-sufficient should refrain [from taking a fee]; and whoever is poor - let him take according to what is acceptable. Then when you release their property to them, bring witnesses upon them. And sufficient is Allah as Accountant.

— Saheeh International

Test the orphans until they reach the age of marriage,1 and then if you find them mature of mind hand over to them their property,2 and do not eat it up by either spending extravagantly or in haste, fearing that they would grow up (and claim it). If the guardian of the orphan is rich let him abstain entirely (from his ward's property); and if he is poor, let him partake of it in a fair measure.3 When you hand over their property to them let there be witnesses on their behalf. Allah is sufficient to take account (of your deeds).
