Actually in America u can live in a public housing which is more cleaner than what they have in Europe and also have a job. The purpose of that is in public housing they charge u 30% of your income for rent as opposed if u lived in private renting places u can pay as high as 45%
This is ideal and good help for families who work, and at the same time can not meet the challenge of an expensive rent they have to pay. This is also temporary so kids can get into good schools located in good neighborhoods. I have no issues with people seeking financial help when they are also honest and working to improve the lives of their children. That is why societies built institutions to help citizens. I would build the same institutions in Somalia and also demand people who benefit that they must also benefit society by educating their kids, working and engage in volunteering. This honest living is different from lying to the government and avoid responsibility. Not good. Very Un- Islamic. The first Muslim ruler who introduced Welfare system was Omar Ibnu-Khattaa. Not only did he give money and food to the poor, sometimes he carried the sacs on his shoulder to deliver them to those who need. Helping the poor and the low income is something islam is built upon among other foundations. But the poor should not lie to get an extra pie and escape responsibility.
