Shares Of Khums

Q:

When and where did the 50 - 50 % of khums originate? 50% sehme imam. 50% sehme saadat.

The origins and background please.

A:

A/salaam,

Khums division origin:-
From verse 8:41 apparently. And there are some traditions which show at the time of Holy Prophet and Imams it was given to family.

Based on the verse it is divided in 3 & 3.

The division in the Quran:-
Khums is for God and His messenger and dhilqurba....then the other 3 categories of yateem and  miskeen, etc

Wallahu a'alam
