Sayyidah Zaynab bint Ali (Arabic captions)

Location: Lebanon

SAYYIDAH ZAYNAB BINT ALI (Arabic): Lady Zaynab bint Ali was the daughter of the fourth Caliph Ali ibn Abi Taleb and the granddaughter of the Prophet Mohammad. She is revered in Shia Islam and is considered a primary source for the events surrounding the Battle of Karbala in the Islamic year 61 AH (10th of October 680 CE). Accompanying her brother Husayn to Kufa, they were betrayed by its people, who switched allegiance to the Umayyad Caliph Yazid. Husayn and most of their retinue were killed in the ensuing battle. Zaynab was taken prisoner. She was the first person to commemorate the martyrdom of her kin, in mourning rites which later came to be known as Ashura.
