This study entitled: "Challenges of People with Special Needs in Algerian Society in the Light of  Quran and Prophetic Sunnah: A Field Study on the Saber Yanal Association". This study explores various aspects related to people with special needs in Algerian society, focusing on the Saber Yanal Association in Ouargla. The research encompasses definitions of individuals with special needs from the linguistic aspect and from the Quran and Sunnah. It, also, investigates their rights according to Quran and Sunnah, and the impact of this on Algerian society. The study employs three research methods: an inductive approach to extract the verses and Prophetic Hadiths regarding people with special needs, a comparative analytical method to discuss and analyses the obtained information, and applies an approach based on a field study conducted on the Saber Yanal Association. This research conducts a survey with 150 members who have special needs. This study concludes that Quran and Sunnah emphasizes the importance of people with special needs, recognizing them as part and parcel of the Islamic community and granting them complete and unreserved rights. In the meantime, it focuses on assigning duties according to their capabilities to break barriers of discrimination. The field study reveals that 55% of the Algerian society lacks a proper understanding of the principles of Quran and Sunnah in dealing with people with special needs, which is more inclined towards adopting a sympathetic, humane attitude, as named by the international community. This lack of understanding and practical application of the Quran and Sunnah negatively affected the Algerian society, as indicated by the survey results with a 49% response rate.
