The Two Caliphs and Khums

Recommended Posts

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.

Isn't the book : History of Madinah by Ibn Shabbah AlNumairi a sunni work?

It contains details on this issue if i'm not mistaken.

Thanks for that. I will look through the book for authentic Sunni reports which show how Abu Bakr and 'Umar paid khums to Imam 'Ali and his family.
