The love, care and warmth of parents are essential for the proper development of children, but unfortunately, all children are not brought up by their parents. Orphan is a child who has lost one or both parents or whose parents have abandoned him permanently. Though children living in orphanages experience multifaceted psychosocial problems, psychological protective factors can lessen the effect of orphan hood, therefore the present research was conducted to see the relationship between Islamic-attitude and resilience among orphans .The study was carried out in three orphanages. The sample of the study consisted of 100 orphans aged 12-18 years. The Connor-Davidson Resilience CD-RISC 10 (the short version) and Islamic religiosity scale developed by Masood (2018) was used to measure Resilience and Islamic attitude respectively. After tabulation of t-test, Pearson-product correlation and linear regression, it was found that Islamic-attitude was positively related to resilience and it explained the 48% variance.
