Khums usage

Khums is a form of Islamic personal tax, and its payment and proper expenditure can solve various societal economic issues.

Khums consists of 2 parts:

A- Imam’s share: This portion of khums belongs to Imam Zaman (A.S.), and during his absence, it is placed at the disposal of taqlid authorities (who are considered Imam Zaman’s (A.S.) deputies). In addition, they use it for purposes such as maintaining religion, assisting people experiencing poverty, etc.

B- Sadat’s share: This portion of khums is given to needy Sadats to improve their life.
