All husseini's are infact descendants of hazrat zaid ibn ali ibn hussein.

Not many husseini's them selves know this.

Ayatullah seestani & Ayatullah khamenei are both descendants of zaid ibn ali, they both take the name 'husseini' where those from the sub-continent tend to use 'zaydi'.

so there are more zaydi's then it seems

how does one know if they are sayyid? Is there a certificate or something passed down through the centuries, or is it word of mouth? I'm really interested.

Sayyid's have a SHAJRA. A book that shows their lineage.

Ma Salaam

Sayyid Ali Naqvi

I couldn't tell you. Who knows what grand lineage -possibly even from the household of the Prophet (pbuh) - from which my past forefathers could have descended. I wouldn't know or have the slightest idea. That type of heritage/lineage - if ever present in the first place - would have been robbed from my ancestors for many many generations now.

I wonder how many unaware 'sayyid's are on the corners of the South Side of Chicago (and similar places) .... I guess we'll never know :(

Please do not spread incorrect information.

All Hussaini sayyids are from Imam ALI IBN HUSSAIN aka Zainul Abideen, Sajjad (as)

NOT from Zaid bin Ali.

Imam Sajjad had 15 children, 11 boys and 4 girls. From that 11, Zaid bin Ali = Al-Zaidi & Zaidi, Imam Muhammad al-Baqir = Al-Baqiri, Baqeri, Baqri, The other 9 sons = Al-Abidi & Abidi.

(salam)
