I live in Sweden and here it is a law that if you are working here and paying taxes then you are eligible to take parental benefits if you have a child. Parental benefit means that you are entitled to take leave from work and the government social insurance will pay you 80% of your salary. Both mother and father are allowed to take leave from work and be with the child. Similarly they also give child allowance every month as well to the child parents. In order to avail these benefits we don’t need to pay any money. Everyone is eligible if he/she meets following conditions: (1) Have a personal number in Sweden (meaning legally allowed to live in Sweden for more than a year). (2) Paying taxes in Sweden or permanent residence in Sweden. (3) Register in the Government Social Insurance Agency (this can be done without paying any thing, you just need to register yourself in order to avail social benefits like discounts in medical treatment, sick leave benefit, child allowance and parental benefits). I want to know that what is the Islamic ruling on availing these benefits? As Muslims can we avail them?
