Question:Maulana I’ve decided that this year I will inshaallah do my pilgrimage to Mecca. I know that there’s some preparations that I’ll have to settle before the pilgrimage, my question is revolving the khums. I haven’t given any khums before because I lived with my parents and my father took care of it, but now I live on my own so my question is how does it work? What is accounted in the khums?

Also I read that one cannot do the pilgrimage if he/she owe any money to someone. I’ve taken a student loan and a mortgage loan, which I’m currently paying back in form of a monthly payment plan. What is the verdict regarding those loans in this situation?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Khums is wajib on every baligh and according to Aagha e Sistani one who is in debt can not go for wajib if you go it will be consider as mustahab except in the past in any occasion you had potentiality for haj and you had not gone.

For holiday reasons, if I have the permission of my parents and am going with females and do not intend to engage in anything sinful, is this permissible?

Question:I want to complete reading the Quran (khatm) during the month of Ramadhan however I am unsure about rulings whilst menstruating. I am aware I can recite the Quran but can not touch the writing however what do I do about compulsory sujoods? Can I perform them without wudhu during menstruation? Or will I have to skip those ayat out and not be able to complete the Quran fully

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Leave those Aayat and read later when you will be in the state of taharat and then perform the sajda.
Recitation of more than 7 verses without touching Quran itself is makrooh therefore complete the Quran when you will be in the taharat and in those days you may recite tasbeeh and do Zikr.
