Khums payment


Assalam o alaikum,
I received a large amount of money from a montly savings policy last November. I wanted to use this to repair my house but haven’t been able to as I haven’t found a builder. It’s now been a year, do I need to pay khums in this money?

Also, for example I need to pay £2000 khums on £10,000. Could I take that £2000, from the 10,000 in the bank or leave that 10,000 in the bank and just pay 2000 from myself?

Jazak Allah khair Shamime


Wa alaykum salaam

Khums becomes wajib on what is excess to that year’s expenses.

You can pay 2000 from yourself.

Sukaina Taqawi.
