Sayyida Zeynab bint 'Ali

radiya Allah 'anhuma

Daughter of Sayyiduna ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib and Sayyida Fatima Zahra, may Allah be pleased with them all.



Her father was Sayyiduna Ali b. Abi Talib, and her mother was Sayyida Fatima Zahra. She was the older sister of Sayyiduna Hasan and Husayn.
She was married to Abdullah b. Ja’far b. Abi Talib, the son of Ja’far al-Tayyar.

May Allah be pleased with them all.


Lady Zaynab, wished to spend the rest of her life [in Medina] to be near her grandfather, the Messenger of Allah . However, Banu Umayya denied her this wish as her presence in al-Medina was enough to incite the people to avenge her brother, al-Husayn. So the governor of al-Medina asked her to leave the city and reside wherever she wishes and she chose to live in Egypt. Lady Zaynab was indeed a Divine gift and a flowing stream of the light and abundant good from the Prophet to the people of Egypt.
