I had an argument with my mother about interracial marriages. I was telling her about how the imams married from different nationalities. She said give me an example of the imams daughters getting married to a man from a different nationality. 

Does anyone know anything to answer this?

And can you please pray for my parents conservative mind to change?

Our reference and role models are the aimmah (عليه السلام). There is little recorded about their children simply because this information wasn't that important. What is important are the teachings, narrations and actions of the aimmah (عليه السلام) and this is what we find in our books.

It is not a secret that historians did not pay enough attention to recording the date of birth, death and marriage of the children of the Imams (عليه السلام) and sometimes even the Imams (عليه السلام) themselves. Therefore, it is possible that these women married with all the problems and difficulties that existed and followed this worthy tradition of their ancestors. Moreover, since historians do not mention the issue of marriage of the children of the Imams (عليه السلام) or it is not in the history books, it can not be a reason for those women not to marry; Because the lack of conscience is not pointing  to  the lack of existence.

What is at stake is the above reasons and arguments, but these arguments need to be examined.

A- Regarding what Ya'qubi has said, it should be said that the will of Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) in our narrative sources does not indicate such a point.

Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) has stated in his will: "... If a man asks you to marry his sister, he has no right to do so, except with his permission and command (Ali) and not my daughters (they have the right) to marry one of his sisters Give them a husband or their mothers and not a king, nor do anything for them, unless it is with his (Ali's) opinion and consultation. If they do so without his permission, they have indeed opposed God and His Messenger and quarreled in his kingdom, and he (Hazrat Reza) is more aware of the interests of his people in marriage. "If he wants to give someone a husband, he gives it, and if he wants to refuse, he refuses." In fact, the Imam meant by this will, referring all the survivors to the successor after them, and that they start from a simple matter such as marriage and refer their children to the Imam of their time, not to prevent their marriage.

In addition, it should be noted that such a will is contrary to the tradition of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and the rules of the holy law of Islam that marriage is permissible, and in principle such a thing is unlikely from the Infallible Imam.

C- The process of oppression and pressure on the Shiite Imams and the strictures began from the time of Imam Musa Kazem (عليه السلام) and gradually intensified until the coming to power of Harun al-Rasheed; In such a way that all the relations, travels and interactions of the Imam were under the control of the government and the Imam and his associates were severely questioned and reprimanded by the government apparatus. In fact, these pressures were not only on the Imams, but also on their Shiites, and created an atmosphere of terror and silencing . It was in this oppression that the Shiites of the Imams, like Ali ibn Yaqteen, were forced to conceal their connection with him; And it was under these pressures that Imam Reza (عليه السلام) was forced to come to Mashhad.

It is obvious that the existence of such pressures also affected the family life of Imam (عليه السلام) and his family life was affected by these pressures; So that no one dared to think of being the Imam's son-in-law, let alone take the initiative to do so, because this relative connection provided the ground for persecution by Harun. Even after the martyrdom of Imam (عليه السلام), the fear among the people increased and after that, the summoning of Imam Reza (عليه السلام) to Mashhad and the emigration of his sisters after him, was itself a factor in this issue; It is natural in such circumstances that no one thinks of marriage, no one is willing to marry and there is no priority and possibility for this. As the eldest daughter of the Imam  Kadhim(عليه السلام), she was finally 10 years old and the other girls were younger than her.

Forget about the children, the aimmah (عليه السلام) themselves married women from different backgrounds, and there are many narrations regarding this. Part of their teachings anyway was diversity, and unity amongst the Muslims. But unfortunately, today in many communities we are just being surrounded by jaahiliyah (ignorance), 'cause families who call themselves Muslims put their culture and traditional values before Islamic beliefs, its stupid and messed up and pisses me off every time I think about it, they make several excuses as to why they don't want their children marrying outside their culture, because reputation comes first. its very unfortunate and it is one of the reasons as to why Shia Muslims as a whole are so disunited. It is because of RACISM, IGNORANCE AND HATRED that we're so divided and in fact, is maybe why Imam al Mahdi (ajf)'s arrival is prolonged, cause we cannot stand as one ummah of Shi'at Ali. 

May Allah guide us in the forthcoming years.

Relation between Iraqis and Iranians is a perfect exemple of that.
