Pearl of Wisdom

'A good favour done to a fellow believer is not considered complete until accompanied by three things: underestimation of the act, concealing it, and hastening its completion. He who underestimates his good turn to a fellow believer has esteemed his brother highly indeed, whereas he who esteems his good turn to be great has deemed his brother to be insignificant. He who conceals the good turn that he has done has honoured his action, and he who hastens to fulfil his promise takes pleasure in the gift too.'

Imam Musa ibn Jafar al-Kadhim [as]
Tuhaf al-'Uqul, p. 403

Question : #749 Category: Zakaat & Khums
Subject: determineing the market value
Question: how to determine the market value to give khums?
Answer: Khums is not determined by market value as it is an Islamic tax, paid at the rate of one-fifth or 20 percent of annual saving or surplus of income. The saving or surplus amount can be determined by subtracting yearly eligible expenses from annual income.


Grand Ayatullah Sayyid Ali Husayni Sistani has discussed the topic in detail in Rulings 1760 through 1860, visit web site www.sistani.org.
A review of those rulings is necessary by every Muslim so as to identify certain conditions, incomes, expenses, or circumstances under which either the Khums is binding or exempt.
