What is the Islamic law concerning marriage between a Sayed and a non-Sayed?
There is no problem in the marriage between Sayed girls or women with non-Sayed Shiite men as it is not necessary for Sayed girls and women to marry Sayed men  . None of the jurists have forbidden such a marriage.
For instance, Grand Ayatollah Saafi Gulpaigani says in this regard as such:
“No, there is no problem in it but it is befitting for the husband to further observe his wife’s respect.” 
Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.) had many daughters who did not marry throughout their lives like Hazrat Ma’suma but it was not because of the unavailability of Sayed men.
