Question:1) Are we supposed to pay khums on investments (if you need to know more specific s it's a UK investment ISA)? If so, on which amounts do we pay the Khums, and would this be every year?

2) And would I then pay khums on any profit generated on that amount at the end of the khums year?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 1) If the investments are savings then yes, and it would be once. For example if I have an investment of £5000 which is saved for a whole year, I will pay £1000 on it and then that investment is khums’d and I do not need to pay on it again even if it stays for another year

2) Correct

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If you are convinced that the water is reaching the skin then it is allowed. But it is up to you to investigate and research whether that is the case.

Question:In 1 rakaat of witr where we have to name marhumeen, I got into this habit of saying names of 14 masumeen, shaheedane kerbala n Ahlulbayt for in majlis once i had heard wasiyat of Imam Hussein a.s that he had requested Sayyida Zainab e Kubra s.a not to forget him in namaaz e shab so I started to recite then marjah's names then our marhumeen.
Point to ask is, is this acceptable by Allah, as if, I dont say the names of Prophet and his family, I feel I have not prayed properly, I dont feel satisfaction.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: It’s fine.
