Repaying Borrowed Gold
Repaying Borrowed Gold
I borrowed a few pieces of gold several years ago from someone, and their value back then was, say, $200. Now, in virtue of inflation they are worth, say, $300. Do I owe the price they were worth when I borrowed them or their current price?
Abortion
Abortion
My wife is three months pregnant. After several tests, the doctor came to know that the fetus is not fully developed. After the birth, it will not live more than five years, are we allowed to abort it?
Liability of Gifts to Khums
Liability of Gifts to Khums
I presented an amount of money to my wife as a gift toward the end of my religious fiscal year (at which time the payment of khums becomes due). Do I have to calculate this gift into my surplus income that is liable to the religious tax of khums?
