Syed Women Marrying A Non-Syed

Question

I want to ask, whether it is prohibited in Islam for a Sayed Girl to get married with a Non-Sayed Male.I also want to know the stance of Shi'i scholars on the same topic


Answer

It is absolutely fine for a Sayyed and non-Sayyed to marry each other and there is no difference of opinion about this in between the Shia and non-Shia scholars. We do not need evidence from the sources of Islam to prove something is allowed. It is only when proving something is forbidden that we need proof.The idea of marriage between Sayyed and non-Sayyed being forbidden or disliked is rooted in tribal cultures and can be categorised as the attitude of the time of ignorance (Jahiliyyah).
