Can an Asian Man Marry a Sayyidah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Maulana Muddasser Dhedhy

Question:

I am a guy looking to get married. I have found a suitable girl to marry and we are both happy.

Unfortunately, there is an issue. Her lineage comes directly from the Prophet (pbuh) and she is, therefore, a Sayyid.

Her father is against this marriage for many reasons, most notably because:

1) I am not an Arab
2) Because of her lineage

Islamically, can an Asian guy marry a Sayyid girl?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Answer:

A non-Sayyid male is not considered to be a compeer for a female who is a Sayyid unless he is a man of knowledge and she is not.[1] He cannot marry her without the consent of her parents.

In this instance, as her father is against the marriage you cannot marry this Sayyid girl.[2]

Only Allah knows best
