Khums; An Islamic Tax
Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi
Khums is an issue every practising Shi’ah must deal with once a year. The need for an easy to understand, yet comprehensive guide has been felt for years. Especially now more than ever, with the financial complexities of our world today. This book hopes to fill that void, since its first publication in 1984. This 4th Edition includes numerous revisions and expansions, including: the history and usage of Khums during the time of the Prophet & Imams, the moral and political aspects of Khums, updated examples and rulings, practical and common issues for those living in the West, frequently raised questions, and much more. The book also reflects rulings based on various prominent maraji’ in order to cater to as many muqallidin as possible.
Previous versions of this book have been well received, as well as prompting insightful feedback from communities around the globe. It has been reprinted in Iran and Pakistan, translated into various languages, has had excerpts published in magazines, has been incorporated into other publications, and has been the basis for countless other seminars, booklets & calculation forms.
