He is in need and his brother is a music-writer

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
My brother works as a music-writer, putting music to songs, and he has no other source of income. I cannot work, and my father is dead. Is it permissible for me to eat from his wealth (be supported by him)?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, and he answered as follows:

Yes, it is permissible for you to eat from his wealth, so long as you are in need, and it is his duty to spend on you.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
