SHAFAQNA – The Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi answered a question about ways of proving a person is Seyyed.
Question: How to prove a person is Seyyed?
The Grand Ayatollah Makarem: There are two ways which can prove a person is Seyyed:
- Two just people approve that the person is Seyyed (one is also sufficient).
- In his own town or area is known that he is Seyyed, whether this reputation causes certainty or supposition.
