Quoting from another question
Islam mandates zakaat to help poor. Zakaat eliminates beggary to an extent but what about habitual beggars who can otherwise earn a living? How should the lazy and habitual beggars be dealt with according to shariyah?
Some people who live on benefits can 'otherwise earn a living', but do not either due to laziness or fraud, but are not as such begging for income in the strictest sense.
How are people such as these treated Islamically?
