6. 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 clai m 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 God in taking account.
