Wasalaam, Mustafa Rawji Moderator, 'Aalim Network ____________________________________________________________________________ QUESTION: Al-salam alaykom wa rhmato Allah wa barakatoh I'm follower of Ayatollah Systani and want to ask about the following: 1- My father still responsible for me and I take money from him. The problem is he does not pay the Khums or the-Zakat from his money. What shall I do for that? Do I have to pay Zakat and Khums from the money he gives to me? --------------------- ANSWER: Masail of Ayatullah Seestani from: http://www.al-islam.org/laws/khums.html#1761 Khums 1803. * If a person acquires wealth from another person, and doubts whether or not he has paid Khums on it, he has a discretion over it. In fact, even if he is certain that the other person has not paid Khums on it, he has the discretion over it if that person is a Shia Ithna Asheri.
