Question : #1110 Category: Zakaat & Khums
Subject: Khums currency conversion
Question: Assalam-o-Alaikum,

I did my khums calculations on a specific date but could not make khums payment at that time. Several months have passed since then. I am residing in a western country, and there are no khums-taking organizations here. I have to send khums payment to another country, in a different currency. My question is regarding the 'currency exchange rate' to be applied when making payments in a different currency.

The currency exchange rates change very frequently. The exchange rate these days is very different from the rate of the day I did the the khums calculations. So which rate should I be adopting when making the khums payment. The current applicable rate, or the rate of calculations day?

What is ruling of Ayatollah Sistani in this regard?

Thanks & Was-salam

Our Sheikh will respond to this question in the coming days Insha'Allah, check again soon
