مسجد السيدة رقية
Sayyidah Ruqayya Mosque (Arabic: مسجد السيدة رقية) is a shrine located in Damascus, Syria, that contains the grave of the youngest daughter of Husayn ibn ‘Alī by the name of Fātimah. She is often referred to by her titles: "Ruqayya" and "Sukayna" by Arabic speaking Muslims, and the title: "Sakina" by Persian and Urdu speakers.
After enduring the advent of Karbalā and the torturous journey to Damascus that followed it, Lady Ruqayya finally died in Yazid's prison, where she was originally buried. Years later however, upon the flooding of her gravesite, Lady Ruqayya's grave was reopened and she was moved to the site where the Mosque now stands today.
