Sayyida Zaynab a , the Heroine of Karbalaa

Father Imaam Ali a Mother Sayyida Fatimah
a Name Zaynab is thought to mean 'she who
weeps excessively', and other linguistic sources
state that it once meant a good looking or
smelling tree. The name might also possibly be a
compound of the two Arabic words, zayn (beauty)
and ab (father). Birth The exact date of her
birth is uncertain however the most widely
accepted dates are the first of Sha'ban or the
fifth of Jamadi ul-Awwal of the fifth or sixth
year A.H., or the ninth of Ramadan in the ninth
year A.H.

Death Not only is the date of her death
uncertain but so is the place she is variously
thought to be buried (most popularly) in
Damascus, but also in Medina and Cairo. There are
two explanations given as to how she came to be
buried in Damascus one being that some time
after their return Yazid once again sent his
forces to attack them, this time at Medina, and
she and other members of her family were taken as
prisoners of war to Damascus where she died
another being that because of a famine that swept
through Medina, her husband temporarily moved his
family to a village near Damascus, and it was
there while praying in a garden that Zaynab a
was accidentally but fatally struck by a
gardener's spade, or fell victim to a serious
illness from which she never recovered. The
anniversary of her death is observed on the
following dates 11th or 21st of Jamadi
uth-thani, the 24th of Safar, the 16th of
Dhu'l-Hijjah, or the 15th of Rajab
