Zayd ibn ‘Alī Zayn al-‘Ābidīn ibn al-Ḥusein was born in H 76 / AD 695 and triggered a revolt against the Umayyad Caliph Hishām ibn‘Abd al-Malik in H 122/AD 722. Yūsuf ibn Umar al-Thaqafī, the Umayyad Governor of Irāq, quelled the insurgency and in this turmoil Zayd bin ‘Alī was killed. This shrine is believed to be the place where the body of Zayd ibn Ali was buried.
