SHAFAQNA – The Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi answered a question about using Khoms in political matters.
Question: What is the ruling about using Khoms in political matters like elections?
The Grand Ayatollah Makarem: Spending Khoms for political matters like election advertising is not allowed; and this money must be given to Mojtahid to be used just for religious matters, cultural, theology Howzahs, and Mosques. And building Mosque using Khoms money in deprived areas is only allowed if there is no volunteer to build a Mosque.
