Hawzah News Agency (Qom, Iran) - In an interview with Hawzah News, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Mahdi Rajaei strongly condemned the recent conspiracy of some British media claiming the Queen of England to be a Sayyeda. Sayyed or Sayyeda is an honorific title denoting people accepted as descendants of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Head of lineage of Sadat research center referred to the conspiracies and intrigues of the enemies of Islam and Shia in vitiating the concept of being Sayyed and said, “Today, a great danger threatens this concept, which requires a firm stand in the face of such conspiracies.”
He stressed that being a Sayyed is an Islamic jurisprudential issue and its conditions have been fully explained in many Islamic jurisprudential sources.
Head of lineage of Sadat research center said, “Forging the title of Sayyed for tyrants and evil people is not a new trick, it has happened in the past as wel. If today we do not stop this intrigue, then more bloodthirsty and atrocious people will be falsified as Sayyed and the descendants of Ahlul Bayt (as) in the future.”
He noted that the genealogy of the Queen of England that claims her as Sayyeda is a silly forgery, as the family tree should include at least 42 people in terms of relatives.
