The World Federation One Stop Fiqh

Ask an Alim

Can a child be called a sayyed,if only his mother is a sayed


If mother is a  syed and father is a non syed then their children would be called  syed or not?


Al-Salam Alaykum
One can not be called Sayyid but would be Mahram to Hazrat Zahra. Also the Fiqh ruling about Sayyid would not be applied to him\her.  Sayyid would be the one who is born from a Sayyid Father.

Also you must note Imam Sadiq(A.S) said, “my honor for following Imam Ali is much bigger than being from his lineage”. Try your best to follow Imam.

best regards!
