Wo mentally unstable hai. Mjhy govt say aik ghar bhut kum rent par mila hoa hai . Or meri beti ko social security income milti hai jo k disable child ko govt har month issue krti hai. Wo 600$ hai .  Meri beti chunkay minor hai to main he wo paisay Apni marzi say us par or apnay ap par kharch krti hun. Is Ssi income k illawa meri beti ko child support 215$ monthly 
Milta hai. Means total 815$ meri beti ko miltay hai altogether.

الجواب وبالله التوفيق      

In the situation inquired about, Shara’n there is no harm in using the child and disabled children support money given by the government for personal use as needed in addition to spending it on the children.

If the money is more than the needs of the children then this saved money will be considered امانت (trust) of the children, it was not correct to perform Umrah with the savings from the child and disabled children support money given by the government. Therefore, the amount you used for the Umrah from this savings will be counted as debt you owe to your child. You should pay this amount back gradually so your Umrah could become valid.
