Question:Assalamu alaykum, are we supposed to pay khums on investments (if you need to know more specifically it's a UK investment ISA)? If so, on which amounts do we pay the Khums, and would this be every year? Are we to pay khums on the profit generated? Please shed some general light on this issue


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If your capital is from clean money (Khoms paid), then, you just need to pay the khoms of the profit you get at the end of the year, if the profit is saved and not spent during the year.
Example:
On 01.01.2020 you received a profit of US$ 1000, which you kept a side.
You have to pay its khoms on 01.01.2021
Question:Is reciting verses of the Holy Quran without wuzu makrooh/mustahab/haram?

Question:If we are offering zohar prayer and by mistake we say salam in 2nd rakat what are we supposed to do? Continue the prayer or restart?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Go ahead with your prayer, and after completing it, you need to perform two prostrations for inadvertence (sajdatā al-sahw), for adding salam.
The method of performing sajdatā al-sahw is that immediately after the salām of the prayer, you must make the intention of sajdatā al-sahw and place his forehead, based on obligatory precaution, on something on which performing sajdah is permitted. The recommended precaution is to say dhikr in the sajdah, and it is better that you says:
bismil lāhi wa billāhi, assalāmu ʿalayka ayyuhan nabiyyu wa raḥmatul lāhi wa barakātuh
(In the name of Allah and by Allah. Peace be upon you O Prophet, and Allah’s mercy and His blessings (be upon you too).
Then, you must sit up and go into sajdah again, and say the dhikr mentioned above. [you must then sit] and say tashahhud, after which you must say:
assalāmu ʿalaykum
Peace be upon you all.
And it is preferable that he adds the words
wa raḥmatul lāhi wa barakātuh
and Allah’s mercy and His blessings (be upon you too).
