Pearl of Wisdom

When Allah, Mighty and Exalted, exposed the factions [to be vanquished by the Muslims], the Prophet (SAWA) returned home to wash his head, when Gabriel came to him, saying, may Allah pardon you! You put down your weapons whilst the angels of the heavens have not! Come and join us at the fortress of Bani Qurayza.' So the Prophet (SAWA) called [his companions] and they joined them at the fortress.'

Question : #253 Category: Zakaat & Khums
Subject: enquiry about my khums
Question: I have recently been employed in a government institution. On the 1st of August I was introduced to the institution for taking a five-month paid educational course and I started to receive a full salary only in January after I passed the course.
My question is that from which date does my khums year start? Is it the date I received my 1st salary? Or that on which I took my 1st educational payment?
Answer: If the educational payment was considered as compensation, your khums year started when you received your first educational payment. But, if that payment was under the title of help or gift, it is not subject to khums and the starting date of your khums year would be the day on which you received your 1st official salary.
