  1. My Marja’ (Saanei) is non-responsive to questions posed on his English website. It is literally illegal to send money from the US to Iran, so what are people’s thoughts on giving khums to whatever person or group would be in greatest need directly? There are Shi’a here in the US that need help just as much as in Qom or Najaf.
  2. Salam, Can someone tell me what the difference is between zakat, khums and sadaqa! Many thanks.
  3. I will start this thread with the first hand experience I have had from dealing with this person. I gave him charity, zakat and khums money and later, found out from a very reliable source that the khums and charity money never reached its intended recipient. After I was deceived by this man, I searched on the internet and found many other websites which expose the lies this person has spread. Unfortunately for me, all the khums and zakat money donated to this person has been lost. I wish I had checked his name on internet before giving him any donations. Here are some other websites / postings: He was working for Pakistani Government at one time but apparenly all of his bio on the website was fabrication. Someone took the time to research his background: http://www.scribd.com/doc/9652898/The-Reality-of-a-Great-International-Scholar-Dr-Mohsin-Naqvi Many other people have been deceived by this man: http://fraudmohsin.wordpress.com/ And here (read the comments at the bottom of this profile): http://www.awaztoday.com/singleprofile/383/Dr-Mohsin-Naqvi.aspx
  4. Salam aleikum! This will be my first post here, so apologies if I post this in wrong place or something. Im still learning how to use this amazing forum So I have a question. I am non-sayed woman and I am married to sayed man alhamdulillah. According to what I have understood is that sayeds cannot receive sadaqa but poor and needy sayeds can have their share from khums (sahme sadat). As for me, sayed's non-sayed wife, can I also for example eat from that money if there would me time that my husband needed part from khums? Also I have more questions. In my situation, as i am non-syed woman married to Syed man, do I need to pay khums? If I do need to pay it, can I pay it direct to my husband (if he would be poor and needy)? Since my husband as syed cant receive sadaqa, can I still receive sadaqa (for example if there was time when we would be poor and needy)? Or am I also now prohibited to receive sadaqa since my husband in this case would receive sahme sadat? JazakAllah khair for your answers

    Khums HELP

    [MOD NOTE: All personal information [EDIT] was removed. Please do not post personal information that can be used to identify you or someone else. Whatever you post on the Internet will be read by scammers and spammers.] Salaam My Fellow Brothers and Sister, [EDIT] I have been asking on many chats and forums but none were able to help me out in this situation. All I need is information that who can help me out and provide me with KHUMS here in karachi as this is my right and I'm syed. [EDIT]
  6. Assalam O Alaikum! I want to understand the difference between Zakat and Khums with Reference to Quran and Hadith. If there are different opinions on Zakat and Khums, please do share! I am here with the purpose of learning and understanding. Kind regards, Muhammad Danial
  7. Salaam, What is the ruling on paying Khums on Retirement Plans? In the US, we can have our employer deduct a certain portion of our paycheck and put it in a retirement account. Sometimes, the employer matches our percentage. If I put in 3% of my paycheck, then the employer will put in another 3% and so on. I can't pull the money out of this retirement account until 67. Is it my money? Yes Can I pull it out before retiring? No Is there a penalty for pulling out early? Yes Is it taxed? No (unless it is a roth ira) When is it taxed? Upon withdrawal at retirement When is Khums due on this account? Now or when I retire and pull out the money? I asked a couple of aalims and got mixed answers.
  8. Hello, Lets say I sold House A (which was my residence) for $150,000 and moved to another city where I bought House B for $200,000 (the extra $50,000 were financed by loan). House A was originally bought for $100,000 which was financed by a loan that I payed back in installments that payed every month from my paycheck (i.e. none of the money used to pay for the house had khums payed on them). House B is a bit larger than House A. But it is still within the norm for someone like me (i.e. it's not extravagant. House A was actually smaller than what other people like me own). Do I have to pay khums on the $50,000 profit that I made? EDIT: If you know which Marja your answer is based on, please mention his name
  9. SAlam to all, I would like to know about "Khums" on which things Khums is necessary?, and how many percentage will be on yearly income?
  10. Salam to all, If I want to pay my yearly income khums to my any needy family member, so, may I give them or not???
  11. Salaam. Is a student obligated to pay zakat and khums, assuming he earns an amount of money which he is able to save after incurring several expenses? Or is it sufficient that the head of the family is paying? If a person has failed to pay khums and has an amount of money saved (after all the expenses are calculated) what amount is he required to pay as khums, provided he does not know how to distinguish between his yearly savings and assets on which khums is payable? Thank you. May the infinite mercy of Allah be upon each of you.
  12. As-Salamu 'Alaikum, I was doing a research on khums in Sunni fiqh. At a point, I wanted to find out how and when Abu Bakr and 'Umar paid Imam 'Ali, Umm Abiha Fatimah, Imam al-Hasan and Imam al-Husayn, 'alaihim as-salam, their shares of khums, in line with the Qur'an: واعلموا أنما غنمتم من شيء فأن لله خمسه وللرسول ولذي القربى واليتامى والمساكين وابن السبيل إن كنتم آمنتم بالله وما أنزلنا على عبدنا يوم الفرقان يوم التقى الجمعان والله على كل شيء قدير And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allah, and to the Messenger, and to the near relatives (of the Messenger, Muhammad (SAW)), (and also) the orphans, Al-Masakin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have believed in Allah and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad SAW) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the two forces met (the battle of Badr) - And Allah is Able to do all things. (Qur'an 8:41; Muhsin Khan transl.) Both Abu Bakr and 'Umar waged wars and captured war booties. 'Umar, in particular, was very successful in the war affairs. Therefore, they both had no excuse not to pay the aforementioned members of the pure Ahl al-Bayt their shares of khums. Unfortunately, I was unable to locate any reliable Sunni report which show that either Abu Bakr or 'Umar paid them their shares of khums. This is why I am requesting the help of especially Sunni brothers here, to help find the needed reports. Otherwise, non-payment of khums is a sign of disbelief. I wouldn't want to draw a quick conclusion, without getting helping hands into the search. I am sure the Sunni (or perhaps Shi'i) brothers here will be able to find the reports I need. Shukran.
  13. This topic is for a friend who has a question regarding Khums, and she follows Ayatollah Sistani.
  14. (BISMILLAH) (SAlam) I hope you are all in the best of health and Iman. Since a number of threads about Khums and Saadat have been cropping up recently, while trying to answer one of them, a question came up in my mind. If the point is to help all poor, whether Syed or not and whether through Khums or Zakat, why do our laws make Khums the exclusive source from which poor Saadat can be helped with? Why not just allow all the poor, whether Syed or not, to be helped from the Zakat? Why is Zakat haraam for the Syeds? While I remember coming across the reasoning sometime ago, in a lecture, I've now forgotten so I would be very grateful if someone could shed some light on the matter.
  15. (salam) I have these basic questions. 1/When do the regular (i.e. non sayyed) poor people benefit from khums? Do they get a share from the Imam's share? 2/Why is the saadat part dedicated to Sayyeds only? We always read the sadaat part is for sayyeds because they cannot perceive zakat and sadaqa. But if we compare 20% of the Ummah's income excedent (Khums) with Zakat there is surely much more income in khums and I cannnot help but think this is not fair, especially when most shias today do not pay Zakat which is limited to crops, gold&silver and cattle.. 3/ Are there reliable sources about the saadat part being dedicated to Sayyeds only? 4/ Do all Maraji limit the spending of khums to the saadat among Sayyeds ? Thanks in advance, may Allah help us.
  16. Asalamalikum, I'm turning 22 (female) this year and have never paid khums. I always thought you don't have to if you are dependent on your parents(as I live with them and attend college)I have held a few part time jobs in the past but just minimum wage jobs for a few months at a time. Also, if it is wajib on me how would I calculate it? I understand it is 1/5th of what is left over, but of what? Can someone please give me an example and also tell me what things khums needs to be calculated for ex: clothes, makeup? Also, if I don't have a job what am I supposed to pay the khums from? Thank You
  17. Sallam aalykum, I have some questions regarding khums. Since I follow Sayed Ali Sistani, please provide answers (not opinions or baseless answers) based on what Sayed Sistani says. I receive financial aid as a student, money that I do not have to pay back and can spend on anything such as clothing, school books, etc. Do I pay khums on this? My parents give me "allowances" which I save up. Do I pay khums on this gift they give me? My school also paid money towards my tuition though I did not see nor handle that money. Is khums required on this?
  18. I want to contact the office of official representative of Rehber Imam Ali Khamenei in india i.e Hujjatul Islam Agha Mehdi Mehdavipur. I wanted to submit my khums, but cant get any trusted representative for submitting the same. can any one help me get his office contact number.....or mail
  19. Salam everyone , I have one inquiry regarding the khums, if its obligatory or not.. If I as a father have a business and i pay my khums obligations, my children work with me and they receive their salary from me. Are they obligated to pay khums? :mellow:
  20. I am asking this question with lot of hesitation, Can any one explain me satisfactorily why the progeny of Prophet (a.s.) ( called as sayyads) be given special treatment in distribution of Khums ? is this not unfair to other people ? why any one should be given any special status or treatment just because he happens to be from the progeny of the Prophet (a.s.) ? surely if he is born as a sayyad, it is not due to his good deeds.Prophet himself has clearly taught us that every one is equal in front of Allah, the only factor which differentiates is their good deeds or bad deeds. The son of Prophet Nuh (a.s.) was disbeliever and hence he was punished and the wife of Phiraun (Pharoh) was pious, and hence she was rewarded. When you say that half of khums money is for sayyads only and can not be given to non sayyads, you are creating two kinds of citizens. Share of sayyads can not be given to non sayyads, even if you find that non sayyads are more deserving than sayyads. This is pretty strange, isn't it ? Islam is religion of God. every one is equal in front of God. if a non sayyad is dying, and if you are having khums money which belongs to sayyads, you can not give to a non sayyad, even if he is dying. why ? just because that person happens to be born as non sayyad, he can die, but he can not get any help from sayyad's share of khums. This is not a hypothetical situation,but this is happening every day in India in many charitable organizations. They have lot money with them of Khums which is share of sayyads. And every day non sayyads comes for help who are in really dire need. But they get the standard reply, sorry, we can not give you anything, because this is share of sayyads. ( just imagine, in such kind of situation, what this non sayyad must be thinking ? he must be complaining to Prophet and Allah, that " is it my fault that I was born as a non sayyad ? " i have heard many hadith from Prophet (a.s.) which says that IF any one who looks after my progeny, I will help him on the day of Qayamat. I simply can not believe that such kind of hadith can be true, because it insults our Prophet !! Is our Prophet so narrow minded that he will help only those people who has helped his progeny (sayyads) ? And if I take care of deserving non sayyads, he will not help me on the day of Qayamat ? if Prophet was alive today and two persons go to him for help, one sayyad and other non sayyad, both equally deserving, can we believe that our Prophet will be partial and biased and he will help only a sayyad and he will tell non sayyad that sorry I will not give you this khums money because you are not from my progeny ? The standard argument given by our Aalims is that since Sadaqa is haram for sayyads, that is why they are given special share from Khums. But why create two separate kind of funds ? why sadaqa is haram for sayyads ? are they superior citizens and non sayyads are inferior citizens ? how any one can become a special citizen and have higher rank and deserve special treatment just because luckily he was born in a sayyad family ? HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT FROM HINDUS ? IN HINDU RELIGION BRAHMINS ARE GIVEN SPECIAL STATUS AND IN ISLAMS SAYYADS ARE GIVEN SPECIAL STATUS. AND AS ONE CAN BE CALLED AS A BRAHMIN ONLY IF HE IS BORN IN A BRAHMIN FAMILY, SIMILARLY, YOU CAN BE CALLED A SAYYAD ONLY IF YOU ARE BORN IN A SAYYAD FAMILY. !! . I shall be really really thankful if some one can give me a satisfactory reply. JAZAKALLAH !
  21. Salam, Sorry if this has been asked already. Say i earn 20k a year, and at the end of the year i have no savings. I spent most of the money on mortgage and other living cost e.g food, travel. however on the odd occasion clothes and mobiles ect. Where does khums apply in this case and for which things do i need to take out khums throughout the year? PLEASE ANSWER. Thanks
  22. Assalam-o-Alaikum. 1. Can someone give a list of all obligatory and recommended Islamic financial dues (Khums, Zakat, Fitrah, etc)? 2. If possible, provide a comprehensive but straightforward explanation on what it is and how it should be paid (for each). I don't know if the Maraaji' differ regarding them, but in case they do, I would like Khamenei's rulings. JazakAllah.
  23. Salaam, What would be the khums calculation for the following scenario where the person receives their salary into their bank account: Amount in bank at the end of year 1 = 100 khums due = 20 mukhamas(khumsified money on which khums does not need to be paid again) = 80 Amount in bank at the end of year 2 = 60 khums due = 0 (because its less than the mukhamas) mukhamas = 0 Amount in bank at the end of year 3 = 110 khums due = 10 ((110 - 60)/5) - is this correct? mukhamas = 100 So is the khums amount to be paid at the end of year 3 correct? Also how do you guys pay your khums directly to your marjas? Online? Jazakallah!
  24. Salamun alaikum, Am I subject to khums in the following context, I study in a university abroad and my parents take care of my expenses from university fees to pocket money. However, I do not get a fixed salary; money is sent to me whenever I require it. With regards to the following context while taking into consideration that I have never paid khums before due to my ignorance, I have three questions: 1) Must I pay khums in such a context? 2) According to Ayt. Khamenei, if I have never paid khums, do I need to pay the khums of all the years since my bulugh? Thank you very much in advance, Wassalamu alaikum we rahmatullah wabarakatuh
  25. Assalaom-o-alaikum, Being a Shia muslim trying to get closer to my mazhab and realizing all of my wajibat (religious obligation) , I've come to realize that I haven't paid Khums for the last 15 year or so. I understand that it is wajib on me and is part of the 5 pillars of Islam and so I want to really try to better my self at following these obligation as much as possible. I want to make a commitment and start paying my khums starting from Jan of next year taking in account for the entire year of 2012; but I also want to make up for the missed years. So it has become somewhat challenging and difficult for me to crunch the numbers for all the previous years as I don't remember what I spent on, or how much I was left with at the end of each previous years; is there any ruling on how do I deal with such situation ? what amount of Khums would I have to exactly pay to make up for the missed years? I'd appreciate if someone can point to a good webiste for it or an Aalim I can contact whom I can consult with. Thanks ! Ali
