Is it permissible to file for unemployment benefits, which the State or Federal government issues to people in certain situations?
Walaikumassalam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu
الجواب و باللہ التوفیق
If the beneficiary of such benefits deserves such benefits and does not have a job, then applying for such benefits from the government and utilizing the money received as a result will be considered permissible. This money is considered a gift.
فقط واللہ اعلم بالصواب
