Khums is the obligatory payment of one-fifth of a believers profits or surplus at the beginning of one’s designated financial year.
It is to be paid to those authorised with handling such finances and in the Shia tradition, these are the Fuqaha, the jurists. AIM has permission to collect these payments and as such believers can make their Khums payments through AIM.
Our permission is through the auspices of Shaykh Asad Qassir, head of Al-Islam Al-Asil Foundation in the holy city of Qom, and who has permission from both Offices of Ayatollah Khamenei and Ayatollah Sistani to collect Khums. This can be verified by contacting his office.
