Khums On Savings For Specific Reason

Q:

Salam.

I need to know as per Ayatollah Seestani’s (ra) ruling, regarding application of khums on savings done for a specific purpose. For example saving for an upcoming mortgage, or marriage.

Does khums need to be paid on it?

Thanks

A:

A/salaam.

Khums does not have to be paid so long as the person does not have the
ability and can only undertake those expenses through those savings.
