Social security parent's fund

Q: Please confirm if it is Islamically allowed to be on social security parents as I have heard that it is from money that is from unislamic sources such as riba and gambling etc, and we should not partake in it. I know that some people pretend to be a single mother when their not. They are lying and that is impermissible.They lie to obtain more money for themselves, their husband and their kids. But I am telling the truth me and my husband are on fortnightly payments. My children also receive some money from the government on a fortnightly basis. Is this allowed? Please confirm as I am very concerned about this issue.

Dream after Istikhara

Q: I made istikara a few times this week regarding marriage to a man. I asked for guidance from Allah whether he was my naseeb husband. No proposals/discussions have been made with families or anything, though. Last night I dreamt me and the man were walking down a mountain that was blanketed in clean, white snow. It was snowing profusely in the dream. I was watching us walk down from another person's perspective, if that makes sense. However, I was supporting him 100% down the mountain it's as though he couldn't walk himself, however the atmosphere was fun and we were very happy and laughing. And I didn't feel burdened by his weight, or cold at all from the ice or snow and enjoyed the walk down. I was happy and elated walking down the mountain.  I've read that white in an istikhara dream mean yes, however, I've read elsewhere in an islamic dream dictionary online that descending a mountain means losing rank or respect in the community.

My family is non-muslim unfortunately, but the man's parent's are Hajees. I am a revert of 2 years. 

  1. Is this a positive answer to my istikhara? Is this man my naseeb husband?
  2. If yes, could this relate to him losing standing in his community because of marrying me? (i.e because my family is unsuitable)
  3. What is your recommendation based on this dream? Is this marriage a bad idea?
  4. Is this *just* a dream?
  5. Should I make Istikhara again?
