Khums from mixed income


I am working in two departments of the Muslim bank, one involves in legitimate income while other one deals with markup, I gets combine salary, hence quantity of unlawful income is unidentifiable, if I paid khums from every salary all my income valid?


Wa alaykum salaam wa rahmatullah

May Allah reward you for your concern

If the bank has different sources of income — some being halal and some being haram — but you are not aware where your salary is coming from, then there is no problem. You can treat all of the salary as halal income and do not need to worry about paying khums or giving a portion in sadaqah.
