Newswire: The World Federation launches a Khums App!

Posted on Wed, 2015-11-11 16:19

Dear Community Members,

Salaamun Alaykum.

I am very pleased to be able to tell you all about the launch of our very own Khums Calculator app.

Some of the objectives of creating this app are as follows:

• To assist community members in working out their khums liabilities;
• To provide an annual reminder when khums is required to be paid;
• To raise awareness of khums as an obligation;
• To provide a means of storing khums data (confidentially) to make it easier to work out future khums dues;
• To provide an efficient and simple method of payment;
• To act as a resource of finding out about what khums is due and how it is calculated. To download the Android version of the app visit the Google play store and search for ‘Khums calculator .

Please do download it and as this is the first app we have created we are very keen to get your feedback.  If you have any comments, questions or suggestions please do not hesitate to get in contact with me; I am always open to hearing your thoughts! You can email me directly at rezah@world-federation.org . In addition, if you have any ideas about other Apps we could develop which would benefit our global community, please do share them with us. 

The iOS (Apple) version of the app is under development and will inshallah be launched in the next few weeks.

I hope you all find this app as useful as I do!


With Salaams & duas, 


Reza Hooda
Honorary Treasurer

The Madinah and Bab al-Ilm Iran programme marked its 14th consecutive anniversary in the summer of 2016, with this being the first time that I decided to embark upon the course following my university education. This was also the first ever year in the programme that participants were bestowed the honour of being guests in the holy city of Qom for the birth anniversary of Sayeda Masouma (sa), as well as being in Mashhad for the corresponding celebrations for Imam Ridha (as).

I am glad to felicitate my heartiest greetings on this auspicious and blessed month of Ramadan, as we are invited to be the guests of Allah swt; He has invited us to a Divine feast and gives us glad tidings of blessings and forgiveness.
