Pearl of Wisdom

'A person was a guest of the Commander of the Faithful (AS) and stayed with him for some days. He then presented him with a prior dispute that he had not mentioned to the Commander of the Faithful (AS). The Imam said to him, 'Are you making a formal complaint?' He said, 'Yes.' The Imam said, 'Transfer from us [from our house], for the Messenger of Allah (SAWA) forbade the hosting of a plaintiff [for whom one is judge] unless the plaintiff is also with him.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Ibid. v. 7, p. 413, no. 4

Question : #382 Category: Business / Investment
Subject: government intervention
Question: Some governments are committed to providing housing for the needy under specific circumstances. Is it permissible for a Muslim to buy a house in which he resides for a short time (so that he will not be liable for khums [on that house]), and then he gives it out on rent so he can then go and live in a house subsidized by the government?
Answer: Khums is not waived from a house just by living in it for a short while without actually being in need of it, as has been presumed in the question.
