Please, I would like to know the history of the El-Sawda (Saouda) family in Lebanon (Biqfaya). Who are they? Where do they come from? And most importantly, why have they named themselves El Saouda? What is there original surname before using "El-Sawda"?
P.S. I only know one man with my surname: The Lebanese scholar Youssef el-Saouda from Bikfaya.
Thank you :)
