Pearl of Wisdom

in an intimate supplication said, ?O Allah, to You I complain of a soul that prompts to evil, that hastens towards wrongdoing and is fond of disobeying You... it has many faults, yet [entertains] high expectations; when evil strikes it, it worries, and when good comes its way, it withholds it. It inclines to amusement and frivolity, full of inattentiveness and forgetfulness; it hastens me to sin, and stalls me from repentance.'

Imam Ali ibn Hussain Zayn al-'Abidin [as]
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 94, p. 143

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.
