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):

Our Work

Dignified Care

We believe that every child deserves to have all their care needs met. However, unfortunately many orphaned children in poverty are often left in desperate circumstances. Of course ensuring that they survive their tough circumstances is our priority but, beyond that, we are dedicated to providing them with an opportunity to thrive. You too can choose to contribute towards a system that has allowed us to provide dignified, effective and comprehensive care for years.

At Al-Ayn, we are committed to ensuring that every orphaned child living in poverty has access to the tools and opportunities they need to overcome their difficult experiences. We believe that when a child fulfils their potential, their own future is transformed as well as their families’, their communities’, and society’s at large.

Al-Ayn (UK) has been working since 2013, in collaboration with Al-Ayn (Iraq) to serve over 60,000 orphaned children in poverty from birth and throughout their childhood as well as during their transition into adulthood.

Within the UK, we have grown substantially, from a small group of volunteers based in London, to a dedicated 100+ team of staff, coordinators, and volunteers.

We believe that when you give children the tools they need to achieve their potential, the possibilities are endless. The monthly financial support received by each eligible child is life changing. With a minimum of £55 per month, the basic needs of the child can be looked after and they are brought above the poverty line.

Medical Care

Due to decades of war and instability, exasperated by the global crisis, medical care in Iraq is often inaccessible to orphaned children in poverty. That is why, Al-Ayn provides all children and their guardians with access to free medical care, including scans, operations where needed and free medication.

Educational Support

Did you know? Many children we met across Iraq were suffering most with their lack of access to comprehensive education! Sadly, local schools were not providing the necessary support. Class sizes were sometimes 60 students and the nearest school could be miles away. Travel costs were so expensive, mothers often borrowed in order to cover these expenses.
