(bismillah) (salam) I recently heard from an 'Aalim that Sayyeda Fatimah (as) had not 2, but three daughters. He (may Allah bless him) said that there was not only Zaynab al-Kubra and Zaynab as-Sughra, but there was also a Zaynab al-Wusta. This has left me in a confused position. It is well known that Zaynab al-Kubra is the famous lady Zaynab of Karbala. She is buried in Syria. I knew there was a Zaynab as-Sughra, who is also known as Umm Kulthoom. She is buried in Egypt. I did not know of Zaynab al-Wusta, but according to the Shaykh, she died during the life of Imam Husayn (as) and is buried in Jannatul Baqee'. Now I am confused, was there really a Zaynab al-Wusta? And if there was, is Zaynab al-Wusta really Sayyeda Umm Kulthoom, and Zaynab as-Sughra another Zaynab? You see, before I heard this, I though Zaynab as-Sughra was Sayyeda Umm Kulthoom. But according to the Shaykh, Zaynab al-Wusta is Sayyeda Umm Kulthoom, and Zaynab as-Sughra is the third Zaynab who is buried in Jannatul Baqee'. Which one is it? And for those of you who do not know, Zaynab al Kubra means the greater/older Zaynab. Zaynab al-Wusta is the middle Zaynab. And Zaynab as-Sughra is the lesser/younger Zaynab. I know much about Zaynab al-Kubra from Karbala, as do many of us. But I know very little about Zaynab al-Wusta (Umm Kulthoom) and practically nothing about Zaynab as-Sughra. Can someone please clear this up for me? (wasalam)
