Day Questions

Where we live, it is customary for the parents to begin saving money and collecting the dowry of the daughter, such as jewelry, furniture and utensils, many years before the wedding. Is Khums obligatory on such money and items?

The normal rules of Khums still apply in such a case. So, if one purchased the said goods and did not use them for a year, Khums is payable on them. However, if he gave them to his daughter before the end of his khums year, he does not have to pay khums for them. She has to if they remain unused till her khums year-end.

If my hand comes in contact with semen, and I touch a mobile phone, but I am not sure if I touched it with the najis hand or the tahir hand, then what should I do with this phone? I cannot wash it because it will be ruined. What do you suggest?

As long as you are not sure that your hand was najis when you touched the mobile phone, you can consider it as tahir. Furthermore, najasah is transferred from one thing to another if the dampness in one of them is transferred to the other. If the mobile phone does become najis, then it cannot be purified again except with water. It is not prohibited to use it while it is najis.

What does one do if he cannot remember the price of a book that he bought? It is been a year and khums is due on it.

The khums is payable based on its value on the day khums becomes applicable on it.
