Notes
  1. 1) Your khums due date is the first day you started your job or business. If you are retired or not in employment, then you can agree a khums due date with a representative of the marja'a, or calculate separate khums years for each profit that you make, from the date you made that profit.
  2. 2) The khums of commercial commodities and real estate(s) which are intended for trading, should be paid in accordance with their current market value, even if they were bought with profits which a year has elapsed on, unless the price at which they were bought is higher than the current value.
  3. 3) If the calculations show that the amount of khums due is negative as a result of sustenance debts, then the amount of the sustenance debt equivalent to the amount of khums due for the rest of the item is calculated and excluded.
  4. 4) If sustenance debts are fully repaid in the financial year, this amount is excluded from the profits.
  5. 5) Possessions which are not subject to khums are:
    1. a. Possessions owned through inheritance:
    2. i. Cash
    3. ii. Real Estate
    4. iii. Objects that are transferrable and the like
    5. b. Possessions owned by the wife from the dowry (mahr):
    6. i. Cash
    7. ii. Gold Jewellery

Why give to Al-Ayn?

Al-Ayn has permission (Ijaza) to spend 100% of your Khums on orphaned children living in poverty. This Ijaza has been signed and stamped directly by Al-Sayyid Al-Sistani himself. A copy of the Ijaza can be seen here as well as directly on his website. Read More

Khums payments are split into two equal shares:

1) The share of the Imam – Sahm Al-Imam: This part is spent on charitable causes at the discretion of the jurist (marja’a).

2) The share of the Sayyids – Sahm Al-Sada: This part is spent on those in need from the descendants of Hashim (the great grandfather of Prophet Muhammad).

How Do We Spend Khums Donations?

Khums donations received by Al-Ayn are utilised to provide essential support to orphaned children, primarily in the form of monthly financial allowances to lift them out of poverty. This applies to both Sahm Al-Imam and Sahm Al-Sada donations*.

If you would like your Khums donation to be spent specifically on one of our Sadaqa Jariya projects, please contact us and we can apply on your behalf for permission for that from the office of Al-Sayyed Ali Al-Sistani.

* Sahm Al-Sada is distributed to orphaned children of Hashimi lineage, defined according to jurisprudential requirements. We have an arrangement with the office of Al-Sayyed Al-Sistani to exchange any excess Sahm Al-Sada donations with Sahm Al-Imam donations to be distributed to other orphaned children.

The Importance of Khums

Islam presents humanity with a complete package. It deals with our relationship with other creations of God, as well as our own relationship with God. However, the financial responsibilities that Islam teaches us touches on both. From one perspective, it is a form of worship and a means to get closer to God. From another, it is an act of sharing the wealth that God has given us for causes permitted by the Sharia.

One of the major financial obligations, as commanded by the Qur’ān[1] and explained by the Ahl al-Bayt [a], is khums – the one-fifth levy. It is different to zakāt al-māl, as the latter pertains only to particular forms of wealth above certain thresholds.
