A woman prays inside the Sayyidah Zaynab Mosque in Sayyidah Zaynab, Syria. The mosque houses the tomb of Zaynab bint Ali, the granddaughter of Muhammed. Women are kept on one side and men on the other, except during prayer time when the hall is too busy. Worshipers also pray at Zaynab bint Ali’s tomb, read the Quran and weep for the Shia saint.
