Ruling 1855

A sayyid who uses khums for sinful purposes cannot be given khums. In fact, the obligatory precaution is that khums must not be given to him if it assists him to commit sins even if he does not spend it directly for sinful purposes. Similarly, the obligatory precaution is that a sayyid who consumes alcohol, or does not perform prayers, or publicly commits sins, must not be given khums.
