    Sayyedina Imam Ahmad Raza Khan Al-Qadiri Rahimullah says even if a Sayyid becomes gumrah or ‘loses the right Islamic path’ on condition he does not reach disbelief (kufr) then also it is ‘obligatory to respect him’ (waajibut tazeem). This respect (tazeem) is due to his ‘relationship’ (nisba) with the Beloved Prophet Aaqa Sayyedina Muhammad Mustafa Ahmed-e-Mujtaba sallal lahu ta'ala alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam.

    Allah and his Beloved Habib sallal lahu ta'ala alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam. knows the best.

    Please remember this Nacheez in your supplication's.

    my 2 cents worth:

    kin'aan was the son of nuH 'ala nabiyyina wa 'alayhis salatu wassalam. he was a kafir. so, nasab is not be all and end all.

    please correct me if i'm wrong, but if a sayyid is from ahlu'l bid'ah, he deserves no respect at all. what kind of sayyid is he who doesn't even remember the deen of his grandfather.

    inna akramakum 'indAllahi atqakum. this verse comes after the one that talks about nations and tribes. the esteemed are the pious, not those who are the children of great people.

    there have been sayyids in the past who were ahlu'l bid'ah but due to their insolence, they are given no respect from ahlus sunnah at all.

    i hope people will post from the motherbooks on this issue because what i have written is only from logic.

    what is the position on respect for a sayyid according to ahle sunnah.

    I was in a discussion on this last night,i stated we respect sayyids of ahle sunnah beliefs,and a sayyid from the deviant group or a sayyid who is a open sinner(fasiq) should not deam the same respect just because he is sayyid.

    However other people were of the position regardless of beliefs ,actions we should have the adab of respecting a sayyid.(regardless of what they do etc)
