Khums On A Baligh Child's Possessions

If a young baligh girl (eg, aged 10) has been given gifts that haven't been used for over a year, but has no wealth/money as she's looked after by her parents, is khums wajib on her? (Ayatollah Sistani's ruling is that khums is wajib on gifts)

Does anyone know his ruling about a child who has no wealth to pay the khums? Do her parents have to pay on her behalf? Or is she exempted?

Please share your knowledge :)

1760. Khums is obligatory on the following seven things:

Profit or gain from earning.


Treasure trove.

Amalgamation of Halal wealth with Haraam.

Gems obtained from the sea diving.

Spoils of war.

As commonly held, a land which a zimmi (a non-Muslim living under the protection of Islamic Government) purchases from a Muslim.

Salam alaykum

Thanks for all your replies :)

No, khums is not wajib on gifts received, if it is NOT money or currency.

When Ayatullah Sistani, or any other marja, speaks of gifts in this context, he means money gifts.

I just sent a question to najaf.org asking "Is khums Wajib on gift items that are NOT money/currency?". The reply was:

"In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Yes, it is as long as you do not used it before your khums day

Wassalamu Alaykum"

So I guess khums is Wajib on all kinds of gifts then, money or not... according to Ayatullah Sistani. This is also what I've been taught all my life..
