Sayyid Girl Marrying non Sayyid

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: Can a Sayyid (descendants of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) girl get married to a non Sayyid boy? If not, then please give an explanation in light of the Quran and sunnah.

A: There is no rule or law in Islam that prohibits a non-sayyid from marrying a girl of the sayyid family. However, the condition is that the sayyida girl has to obtain permission from her wali before she can marry a non-sayyid. If she marries such a person without the wali’s consent, the nikah will not be valid. It will only be valid if the wali or the guardian of the girl gives permission.
