Sayyidah Zaynab Mosque (Arabic: مسجد السيدة زينب‎) is a shrine located in Damascus, Syria, that contains the grave of Zaynab daughter of ‘Alī and Fātimah, and granddaughter of Muhammad (Arabic: زينب بنت علي ).

It is believed by Shī‘a Muslims that this mosque is the authentic burial place of Lady Zaynab, whereas the mosque in Cairo by the same name belongs to: Zaynab b. Yahya b. Zayd b. ‘Alī Zayn al-‘Ābidīn (ie. the great grand-daughter of the Shia Imam).[1]

On September 27, 2008, there was a car bomb attack on the intersection leading up to the mosque[2].
