has anyone (sayeds, I am looking at you in particular) ever tried anything like this:

https://www.dna-worldwide.com/ancestry-dna-test/complete-ancestry-test-package

I am thinking about buying the package and seeing what I find out. as far as I know I am abbasid hashmi, but that's all word of mouth. Id like to see some sort of proof. be funny if I spent my whole life thinking Im Hashmi but it turns out my ancestors were actually chinese or something lol

how accurate are these things? how do they know how to link your DNA to other family trees?

I remember reading originally that the results were inconclusive but then a few months ago in a thread @wmehar2 mentioned to me in a thread that there was a new test (which tested a different strand of DNA, I believe) which was providing better results.

Not sure how far along we've come with the testing to accurately confirm whether one is Syed or not.

I can imagine that the DNA will be focused on western europe/ african ancestry and little else. there must be an easy way to isolate the "sayed" gene, we have reliable bloodlines of sayeds on earth right now, surely we could cross reference them to build up an ancestry tree?

I thought about this before but my hangup always is the source they use to determine 'syedness'. As in who is Patient 0 that we will all be measured against?

You would need a Y, DNA test.  I would recommend getting the y-67  pack from familytree DNA.  if you care about recent heritage ,  then you can order the other tests for autosomal DNA.

 

Y DNA looks into direct paternal lineage , father to son.

They've easily honed in on a haplogroup and subclade for the Quraish/banu Hashim.  since Arabs are crazy about this stuff there have be been  many submissions from their peninunsla.  FTDNA has a comprehensive database as well.

J-859 is the subclade under the paternal haplogroup J1 (for which there are many branches) that's the strongest candidate for the Quraish /Sayyid/Hashim signature.  there's overwhelmong amounts of indicators in the data pointing to this branch.

 

That is not to say that R1 haplogroup (different paternal group known to be in south Asia ,  Europe etc.)  can't be a Quraish tribe member.  It just means that it's not a purely paternal tribe, which it wasn't .

Is there an English translation, I can't read Arabic yet.

From what I can gather bottom line and very briefly, he mentions it is  " Wa'ra " which is synonymous to Taqwa that we need."

We know abu lahab was the prophet's Uncle who is closest to him in blood relations comparing to anyone of us is destined to hell, and Salman Farsi whose family was zoroastrian ( Majoos )and reverted to Christianty then Islam, and was looked down because he was not Arab, was called part of Ahlul bayt by the prophet.

That is why in the day of judgement all of our family ties will break and our real families will be based upon our level of faith and taqwa.

These kind of tests , specially to link your blood line to the prophet, leads to nothing but discord.

It is our inner virtues that make us a family to the prophet not physical blood relations.

I am glad he issued such a statement .

He is saying other things about DNA tests and family trees and how this many times cannot be considered proof for "Sayedness" and how many people are claiming Sayyedness without strong proof and this is haram.

I understand the fatwa in Arabic but it would be better if a brother who is a good translator to translate this whole fatwa.

Yes,I realized. I just went straight to the point of (Wa'ra ) taqwa, as this is the main thing. I did not want to elaborate more from what he said just so I don't misinform.

But thank you for confirming my thoughts, and yout over all view of fatwa, till someone procifient in translation, translates this fully.

This is a very wise statement. Poor Sistani he has to deal with such issues on daily basis from his moqalid that he had to issue a statement once and for all...

With this statement 90% wont be able to claim being a Syed.

It would be a good idea moderators pin this post for his moqalids, so that this way the threads related to syeds might decline.

Though I doubt anyone will pay attention...

@E.L King

could you find the exact hadith he stated from shia source?

The closest I came was from the sunni source where the prophet sends la'an to those who claim a father other than theirs?

Sunni Muslim:

خَطَبَنَا عَلِيُّ بن أبي طَالِبٍ فقال من زَعَمَ ان عِنْدَنَا شيئا نَقْرَؤُهُ إلا كِتَابَ اللَّهِ وَهَذِهِ الصَّحِيفَةَ قال وَصَحِيفَةٌ مُعَلَّقَةٌ في قِرَابِ سَيْفِهِ فَقَدْ كَذَبَ فيها أَسْنَانُ الْإِبِلِ وَأَشْيَاءُ من الْجِرَاحَاتِ وَفِيهَا قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم الْمَدِينَةُ حَرَمٌ ما بين عَيْرٍ إلى ثَوْرٍ فَمَنْ أَحْدَثَ فيها حَدَثًا وَمَنْ ادَّعَى إلى غَيْرِ أبيه أو انْتَمَى إلى غَيْرِ مَوَالِيهِ فَعَلَيْهِ لَعْنَةُ اللَه وَالْمَلَائِكَةِ وَالنَّاسِ أَجْمَعِينَ لَا يَقْبَلُ الله منه يوم الْقِيَامَةِ صَرْفًا ولا عَدْلًا

As his statement is based on a similar hadith and surah Ahzab:5
