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.

Well, since a part of khums has to go to sadat, I guess you cannot just hand it to needy people.

If you do not feel at ease with that concept - which I could totally understand - you can give it as sadaqa, thus you would not be enticed to khums on that period... That is what a respected brother here suggested me once.
