Is it permissible for me without the consent of the Marja to give khums to my relatives Sayyids, who are very poor?

The share of Sayyids from the khums is payable to the needy Sayyid believers. His eminence, the Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Al-Hakeem (may Allah prolong his life) has given his permission to spend the said share on the needy Sayyids. Orphans and needy people who are not Sayyid are not to be given from the share of Sayyids. The share of the Imam (peace be upon him) from the khums is to be given to the Marja who you follow via his network of appointed agents or to be spent with his permission.

It is impermissible to purchase or sell alcohol, meat of an animal that was not slaughtered in accordance to the sharia and meat of pig, even if the purchaser or the seller acts as an agent on behalf of someone else. However, it is permissible to deliver such prohibited items unless such act involves another prohibition, like if it encourages the committing of sins.
