Pearl of Wisdom

Amr b. Shu'ayb narrated, on the authority of his father, Backbiting on the authority of his grandfather that some people spoke about a man in the presence of the Prophet (SAWA), saying, 'He does not eat unless he is fed, and does not go out unless a mount is made ready for him.' The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'You have talked about him behind his back' to which they replied, ?O Prophet of Allah, we have only said what is true!' so he exclaimed, 'It is bad enough to talk about your brother regarding what is true [let alone what is false]!'

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.
