I understood that there are a few sources of revenue in Islam, after having read the Ismaili Heritage page concerning Dasond.

"The Indian Ismaili Pirs adopted the term dasond in place of ushr and khums."

Ushr:

"Ushr means tenth part, a tax levied only on the Muslims as a land revenue chiefly on agriculture."

Zakat :

"It is a poor-tax @ 2½ to be levied on the Muslims only."

Khums :

"It means fifth part levied on the Muslim soldiers on the ghanima (booty) they received in the battle."

My question is why do we pay Dasond in the form of Khum and Ushr if we do not partake in the implicit events associated with the two concepts in the present age (agricultural revenue/booty received in battle)?

There is no need to equate the Ismaili Dassond with concept such as Khums, Zakat etc...

Tithe is also mentionned in the Bible. Ways of giving tithe has changed over time, from Cahen offering from his agriculture to Abel offering from his livestock.

Please search Dasond or Dassond, there are discussion on the subject already in the Forum.

More discussed here
