Sura al-Baqara 2:182 (Hanf) - Wasaya (Wills)
2:182 Howbeit he who apprehendeth from the testator any mistake or injustice, and shall compose [the matter] between them, that shall be no crime in him, for God is gracious and merciful.

2:220 of this present world, and of the next. They will also ask thee concerning orphans: Answer, to deal righteously with them is best and if ye intermeddle with [the management of what belongs to] them, [do them no wrong]; they are your brethren: God knoweth the corrupt dealer from the righteous; and of God please, he will surely distress you, for God is mighty and wise.
Sura al-Nisa' 4:3 (Hanf+Malik+Hanb) - Nikah (Marriage)
4:3 And if ye fear that ye shall not act with equity towards orphans [of the female sex], take in marriage of such [other] women as please you, two, or three, or four, [and not more]. But if ye fear that ye cannot act equitably [towards so many, marry] one [only], or the slaves which ye shall have acquired. This will be easier, that ye swerve not [from righteousness].
Sura al-Nisa' 4:6 (Malik) - Nikah (Marriage)
4:6 And examine the orphans until they attain [the age] of marriage: But if ye perceive they are able to manage their affairs well, deliver their substance unto them; and waste it not extravagantly, or hastily, because they grow up. Let him who is rich abstain [entirely from the orphans estates]; and let him who is poor take [thereof] according to what shall be reasonable. And when ye deliver their substance unto them, call witnesses [thereof] in their presence: God taketh sufficient account [of your actions].
Sura al-Nisa' 4:8 (Shaf) - Mirath (Inheritance)

Sura al-Isra' 17:26 (Hanf+Hanb) - Zakat (Religious Taxes)

17:31 Kill not your children for fear of being brought to want; we will provide for them and for you: Verily the killing them is a great sin.
Sura al-Isra' 17:34 (Hanf+Malik+Shaf) - Yatama (Orphans)
17:34 And meddle not with the substance of the orphan, unless it be to improve it, until he attain his age of strength: And perform [your] covenant; for the [performance of your] covenant shall be inquired into [hereafter].
Sura al-Nur 24:33 (Malik) - Zakat (Religious Taxes)
24:33 And let those who find not a match, keep themselves [from fornication], until God shall enrich them of his abundance. And unto such of your slaves as desire a written instrument [allowing them to redeem themselves on paying a certain sum], write [one], if ye know good in them; and give them of the riches of God, which he hath given you. And compel not your maid-servants to prostitute themselves, if they be willing to live chastly; that ye may seek the casual [advantage] of this present life: But whoever shall compel them [thereto], verily God [will be] gracious [and] merciful [unto such women] after their compulsion.
