The mourner by HOOREIN The mourner by HOOREIN
This is the Holy Tomb of Prophet Mohammad's granddaughter
Zeinab, the daughter of Ali in Damascus , Syria

Zeinab accompanied her brother Hussein, as did most of his household to Iraq. After Hussein and all his 72 companions were brutally killed at the Battle of Karbala by the order of Yazid, Zeinab was taken captive by the army of Yazid. Zeinab and the other survivors of Hussein's expedition, most of them women and children, were marched to Damascus, Yazid's capital, where they were held hostage.
Zeinab, already in anguish due to the death of her brother Hussein and her sons was forced to march unveiled. This was an extreme indignity to inflict on a high-ranking Muslim woman, the granddaughter of Muhammad.
