Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, 'Generosity is one of the noble traits possessed by prophets. It is the pillar of belief, such that only a true believer will be generous, as well as one who possesses great certainty and high aspiration, for generosity is a gleam from the light of certainty, and the one who knows what he wants finds it easy to give away.

Question ID  808  -  Zakat and Khums
When calculating Khums, do I take into account as my expenses, the tax that the non-Muslim government takes from my salary? So for example, before tax if I earn £2000 in a month, 20% gets deducted by the government as tax which is £400, leaving me with £1600 after tax. Do I count that £400 tax as an expense along with bills, shopping etc. and deduct that total from the £1600 and what ever remains as surplus take 20% from that as Khums? Thanks. Wassalam
Answer:-  What ever you pay to the government as tax is part of your expenses. Khums
is obligatory on the remaining amount after your expenses.
Question ID  747  -  Zakat and Khums
Can we give the Sahm e Sadaat portion of khums to a needy Syed to help him , without informing him that this is khums money? If No, then what should be done before giving him such money? Thanks.
Answer:-  It is not necessary to inform the poor Sayyed when giving him Sahm e Sadaat

Question ID  728  -  Zakat and Khums
can we give share of our khums to our close relatives who are poorlike to our cousins ? if yes, then what percentage of khums can we give to them? Thanks for your guidance. May Allah give u Jaza-e-Khair.
Answer:-  Helping your poor relatives is very important and it must be given more
importance than helping other poor person if your relatives are really in
Khums is two parts i.e Sahm Imam (AS) and Sahm Sadat. If your poor
relatives are Sadat, you can give them from Sahm Sadat. If your poor
relatives are not Sadat, then you need to seek permission from your Marja'
of Taqleed to give part of Sahm Imam (AS) to them.
It is great reward to help your poor relatives from your own money (the 80%
which remains with you after paying your obligatory Khums).
