Learning about Khums


I have 250,000 rupees since one year. I am living in a rental house and i am jobless.
Do i have to pay zakat for the amount i own?


Waalykum salam

Thank you for your Question

Any amount that is left in ones hand as surplus after yearly expenses, then Khums needs to be paid on that.
khums is 20% of the total amount.

if you’re going through some monetary crisis, then you may want to get in touch with your Marjas office and seek help from there.
