The Press Release on the Events in Azerbaijan (In Azerbaijani Language)
Reciting only the salawat in bowing or in prostration is not sufficient.
On the khums year-end, khums does not apply on the amount that he paid for the debt. Khums is applicable on the amounts that he saved to pay the debt in coming years.
This statement is not a supplication. Yes, if you say: "O my lord, by Ali (Peace be upon him) forgive me," it would be a supplication and it is then permissible.
It is obligatory on every duty-bound individual to determine a khums fiscal year and calculate the remaining money after covering his expenses and pay the fifth of the remainder.
