Question ID  3021  -  Zakat and Khums
Asak, I have purchased one flat in banglaore for purpose of living but i have still not got its possession and as per current estimate it will take another 1.5 to 2 years. Meanwhile my office location has changed and now my home is quite far from my office and commuting takes lot of time due to distance and traffic. Due to this I am thinking of buy another ready to move in flat near my office.My question is that Do I have to pay khums on this 2nd house monthly loan installments? Kindly advise.
 
Answer:-  Salamun Alaykum wr wb
The house where you are living in now is exempted from Khums, but if you do
not practically live in it now, Khums will be obligatory on it's market
value on your Khums date.

Question ID  2933  -  Zakat and Khums
Sir, My husband is a religious man, Alhamdolillah. He does a lot of charity. But somehow he never wanted to pay khums. We had a lot of arguement on this issue. I used to work for quite sometime. That time I asked a lady who knows religion more than me whether I can pay khums from my salary. She said yes you can. I gave khums without telling my husband. Astaghfirullah. But now we both are retired. My husband is sick. We have some saving (FD) and also we get some money in the form of rent every month. How do I solve this problem and what about the years during which I have not paid khums. We follow Aqaae Shistani. I am in a confused state of mind. I donot want to create any problem in the house since my husband is not well. Please advise. Thank you
 
Answer:-  Khums is obligatory on every one who has any thing more than his livelihood
expenses. You must pay Khums for any amount which you saved in every year.
Your husband must do the same but you can not force him. You may tell him
that it is obligatory .

respect you can.

Question ID  2870  -  Zakat and Khums
Asalam-o-Alikum, Hope by the grace of Allah, Muhammad (SAWW) and Aayl-e Muhammad (AS) you receive this email in good health. May Allah gives you strength and encompasses prosperity serving the Ummah. I am in taqleed of Ayatullah Sistani. I have been earning on my own since late 2002 and in between shifted from my home country to Dubai, got married and Alhamdulillah bestowed daughter by Rabul Izzat. During these years all I have earned was to fulfill my monthly expenditure and livelihood. My salary was little and had to rely on loans and credit card for fulfilling necessity and sometimes leisure and things beyond necessity as well. But had not accumulated any saving or investments as such. Till April 2015, I have been into same stream. Later on I changed my job in mid of April-2015 and got my salary for three months in end of July 2015 as lumsum amount (which I saved after deducting all expenditures , rent etc) and since August start receiving my monthly salary as well. Based on above, I need your guidance and way forward to calculate and pay KHUMS on my saving (accumulated from July-2015 till now) and any KHUMS I was supposed to pay earlier, which due to my ignorance or little knowledge on this subject and religious matter has skipped. Truly I believe it’s my ignorance and now need to correct the same. Secondly, I have now decided to set a date (Muharram) of this year to start calculating KHUMS, which I believe will be payable next year before Muharram. Appreciate if you could confirm the same is acceptable and how to proceed and calculate. Thank you in advance and anxiously awaiting your guidance.
 
Answer:-  Accumulated salaries amount is usually used to pay for the debts for
livelihood expenses during those previous months. If any amount remains,
then Khums will be obligatory on it.
Your date of Khums should be same date when you started earning, then one
year after that , you must calculate if you have any amount saved or kind
unused. If you want to start from Muharram, you can do so but after paying
for the period from the start of your earning till Muharram.
Wassalam.
