Can a Sayyida Marry a Non-Sayyid?

An extremely important issue of today, faced by all of us, in particular by Sayyid families, which is deliberately being avoided in our religious addresses, publications and other means of religious teaching, simply to obscure the previous examples of such weddings where a fatawa was made available for their justifications or even a sayyid maraja himself married his daughter with non-sayyid person.

In today’s materialistic society, wealth and power have paramount influence on assessing the virtues of a person and when it comes to judging the compatibility of man and women for marriage purposes, these two factors weigh more than any other (i.e., family lineage, and beliefs).  Generally, society catch the fancy of superficial appearances and worldly status that may be in terms of higher education and family wealth.  As a result believers of Ahlul bait asws have also been allude to the norm of society, a vice which our forefathers have rejected and resisted for hundreds of years, in particular when it comes to the wedding of a sayyid lady with a non-sayyid gentleman.

We have tried in our full capacity to recognise and respect and the un-payable debt of Ahlul bait asws on all living beings, as per revealed in the ‘Ait-e- Fill Qurba’, (Quran Majeed).
