Disability Benefits

Assalam o alakum,

Hope you are in the best of your health.
I am a family medicine doctor and I had stroke 4 yrs ago with recovery where I am able to walk but there is a limp. I couldn't talk at all when I had the stroke and it occurred at age 34. Now mental skills are back but there is weakness on my right side of the body. I am able to walk without any assistance.
I am getting disability income now and I was able to work 4 hrs even after the stroke occurred but my work place gave me early disability retirement.
Is it halal to get paid without working at all?
I will be so grateful to know.

Will wait for your response.

الجواب وبالله التوفيق

It is considered permissible for you to utilize the income received through the disability benefits.

واللہ اعلم  بالصواب
