The Messenger of Allah (sal Sunan An-Nasai - Sahih]alaihi wa sallam) said: "It is not permissible to give charity to a (or one who is independent of means) or to one who is strong and healthy." [
'Strong' means the one who is capable of earning his livelihood. And ‘healthy’ means the one whose hands and feet are wholesome and not handicapped, and he is not incapacitated by some illness. If such a person is poor despite his labour or is unable to find employment, then he will be entitled to receive Zakah or Sadaqah.
