Marrying a Sayed girl


Hello sir,
I hope you are doing good. I wanted ask help on this issue. The girl I am trying to marry is Syeda (female) (some one from Prophet Muhammad SAW line and I am non syed. Her family says it is not allowed in Islam for syeda to marry non syed. I wanted to ask is it islam? What should I do about it?


Waalykum salam

Thank you for your question

There is no harm for a Non sayyid to marry a Sayyid.
It is completely ok.
For help, you can ask your local scholar to speak to the family and guide them on this issue.

Kind regards
