A1. Khums is an obligatory act on every Muslim who has earnings more than
his expenses. The yearly remaining amount must applied for Khums which 20%
of it. This Khums is divided into two equal parts ; one for the Imam who
spends it in serving people and religion, and the second part is for poor
Sadaat who are from the family tree of Bani Hashim.
Khums has been mentioned in Quran ( Surat Al-Anfal, verse 41).
Hundreds of authentic Hadeeths have come from the Prophet (SAWA) and Ahlul
Bayt (AS).

Selling your house: if the house is your residence, and you sell and buy
another house and live in it, then there is no Khums on house of residence.
If the house is not for residence but for any other purpose, Khums will be
applicable on it.

A4. You must pay Khums At least once every year. You may decide the date
and calculate all your ownership and pay 20% of it. The remaking 80% will
be pure money, and no Khums on it even in the future years. Only additional
amounts on that pure money, will be applicable for Khums in the future.
Keep in mind that Khums is nor a charity or donation, but it is Amanat with
us which must be given to its owners and when we give it, we are not
obliging any one, but giving back the right of other which has kept with us
as an Amanat.
