Notes
  1. 1) Your khums due date is the first day you started your job or business. If you are retired or not in employment, then you can agree a khums due date with a representative of the marja'a, or calculate separate khums years for each profit that you make, from the date you made that profit.
  2. 2) The khums of commercial commodities and real estate(s) which are intended for trading, should be paid in accordance with their current market value, even if they were bought with profits which a year has elapsed on, unless the price at which they were bought is higher than the current value.
  3. 3) If the calculations show that the amount of khums due is negative as a result of sustenance debts, then the amount of the sustenance debt equivalent to the amount of khums due for the rest of the item is calculated and excluded.
  4. 4) If sustenance debts are fully repaid in the financial year, this amount is excluded from the profits.
  5. 5) Possessions which are not subject to khums are:
    1. a. Possessions owned through inheritance:
    2. i. Cash
    3. ii. Real Estate

Empower Children

Alongside financial aid, every orphaned child is given access to a comprehensive care system. We believe that every child deserves to have all their care needs met. However, unfortunately many orphaned children in poverty are often left in desperate circumstances. Of course ensuring that they survive their tough circumstances is our priority but, beyond that, we are dedicated to providing them with an opportunity to thrive. You too can choose to contribute towards a system that has allowed us to provide dignified, effective and comprehensive care for years.

Empowering Orphaned Children

Our job is to identify the barriers that hinder personal growth, and pass on that awareness to orphans so they too can identify those roadblocks and work to eliminate them. By empowering them, Al-Ayn gives them a real sense of identity and knowledge that will greatly improve their “sense of self.”
