Pearl of Wisdom

'Allah, the Exalted, revealed to Prophet David peace be upon him and on our Prophet, ?O David! When My believing servant commits a sin and then returns [to Me] and repents for that sin and is ashamed in My presence every time he remembers it, I will forgive him and cause the recording angels to forget it and change it to count as a good deed, and I will not care about it further, for I am the most Merciful.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]

Question : #501 Category: Family Issues
Subject: lineage of Sayeds
Question: How does the status of Sayyed get passed down through marriage and birth?
Answer: Salam Alaykum,
The title Sayyid represents males/sons as descendants of Prophet Muhammad through his grandsons, Imam Hasan ibn Ali and Imam Hussain ibn Ali while the title Sayyida represents the females/daughters.

The title is passed down through birth, not marriage, and if both father and mother are Sayyid and Sayyida or the father only is a Sayyid, then both sons or daughters are attributed with this title.

That said, the Sayyida mother and non-Sayyid father sons are not attirbuted the title of Sayyid, but the title of Mirza. The daughters of this relationship are not attributed with any title.
