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  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 .
