Proof of shia interpretation of khums



Request proof of shia interpretation of khums. The quran verses seem to with Sunni narrative so request more evidences.
Example Khums verses appearing in context of war / sudden gain seems not to be applicable on daily wage workers, verses giving distribution to Allah, Prophet and his family (imams) and their family but also speaks about orphans, stranded in journey, etc ( it does not specify for sayyed so how do we just take the meaning to be for Imams or sayyed’s.

Please point me to right people who can answer if possible.

Thank you, confused shia
