SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – The Grand Ayatollah Shobairi Zanjani’s view regarding paying the Khoms on the assets/capital is explained as follows. No need to pay Khoms on the capital/assets that is needed by a person to generate income for a decent life. This means, a person can add his/her income to the assets/capital, as well as save other capital for future expenses. But if paying Khoms of the capital will bring no problems to a person’s livelihood, must pay the Khoms.
