The World Federation One Stop Fiqh

Ruling 1849

The opinion held by most jurists (mashhūr) is that a believer can appropriate the property of a nāṣibī17 and pay khums on it. However, this rule is problematic [i.e. based on obligatory precaution, one must avoid doing this].18

17 In Ruling 103, nawāṣib (pl. of nāṣibī) are defined as ‘those who show enmity towards the Imams (ʿA)’.

18 See Minhāj al‐Ṣāliḥīn, vol. 1, p. 428, Ruling 1190; and Tawḍīḥ al‐Masāʾil‐i Jāmiʿ, vol. 1, p. 700, Ruling 2436.
