  1. Must I Pay Khums

    From what I understand, whatever you have saved in one year's time (thus is 'profit' from your earnings because you did not use that money) you must pay the 1/5 of that saved money (not gross income). It probably is better for someone with more knowledge to answer, but that is what I know. Asking your marja is best. Good luck!
  2. Assalamu alaikum Ramadan Mubarak to all! Does anyone have a website that shows links to all the online lectures for shahr Ramadhan? Maybe we can use this forum to post links. Thanks!!!

  14. Is It Tru

    Salam First, please try to write in correct English, it is rather difficult to read with the words shortened in such an unnatural way. Second, Marriage is not for a person who is immature and irresponsible and unrealistic.(this is in general and not specifically saying this just to you). If you can truly say that you are a mature, responsible and realistic person, then you may have a shot at marriage. Marriage is not temporary...it is permanent and comes with a great deal of responsibilties and sacrifices. Before you can truly decide whether you are ready for marriage, you must think things out logically and thoroughly. Think of the life changes that will occur when you are married. You will be living with the same person day in and day out for the rest of your life. Everything you do will be with your spouse, for the most part at least, minus some 'girls nights' or 'boys nights'. You will have more bills: rent/mortgage, taxes, home insurance, car insurance, food shopping, cooking, cleaning, working for the money you will need. Children will add even more expenses and responsibilties, obviously. Once married, you will double the size of your family. You will now have in-laws and other family matters to deal with. Overall, marriage is serious business, and should not be taken lightly or for fun. You have to be totally ready for a life change. Maturity, in all aspects, is a sign that a person is ready for marriage, not if 'they don't think about getting married' as you questioned. Good luck!
