SHAFAQNA – Ayah 41 of Surah Al-Anfaal says: Know that whatever you take as spoils, a fifth of it belongs to Allah (SWT) and the Prophet (PBUH), close relatives, orphans, the needy and the wayfarer if you believe in Allah (SWT) and what We have sent down to our servant on the Day of Separation (truth from false), the day when those two groups met, Allah (SWT) is capable of everything. The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) used to collect Khoms from spoils as well as other incomes. Khoms also used to be collected at the time of Imam Ali (AS) as well as other types of Islamic taxes such as Zakat.
