Pearl of Wisdom

'When Allah Almighty sent Hud (AS), the descendants of Sam believed in him. As for the others, they said, 'Who can be stronger than us?' So they were destroyed with the barren wind. Hud exhorted them and informed them of Salih (AS).'

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
