Government allowance

Q: My question is about that my husband lost his job and he is still applying for jobs too but no luck yet and we got house on mortgage. If he doesn’t get a job, we gonna lose everything. So he applied for government support (allowances). If he gets this income from government, is this money halaal unless he gets the proper job.


A: If it is a government support then it is permissible provided it is not interest based.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
