Pearl of Wisdom

in his sermon after having been pledged allegiance to as the Caliph, said, ?O people, ask me before you lose me. Ask me for I have the knowledge of the past and the future. By Allah, if I was set up to judge, I would certainly judge for the people of the Torah with their Torah itself...' He then said, 'Ask me before you lose me. By He who split the seed and originated man, were you to ask me about each and every verse of the Qur'an, I would inform you when the verse was revealed and the reason for its revelation.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
al-Irshad, v. 1, p. 35

Question : #254 Category: Zakaat & Khums
Subject: whats a khums year?
Question: What is the meaning of a 'khums year'? And how is it established?
Answer: The date of a khums year is a fait accompli matter and not to be appointed by the mukallaf.
The start of a khums year for a person is the day on which he receives his first income. The same date in the next year/s will be the end of khums year. Any amount of yearly earnings spent during the year for life requirements and within one's station is subject to no khums.
While, the amount that remains surplus at the end of khums year plus the daily consumable goods (like rice, pea, etc.) that remain untouched until the same date, an unneeded thing which was bought or it is above one's station, are all subject to khums. If a mukallaf, at the end of khums year, does not pay their khums, they are not allowed to make use of khums-unpaid property. Of course, mahr (dowry), inherited property and gifts are not liable to khums.
However, if you face any problem in calculating khums, you may refer to the Marja office or one of their attorney authorized to deal with khums affairs.
