Ali ibn Husayn Zayn al-Abidin: Ali ibn Husayn known as Zayn al-Abidin and Imam al-Sajjad, was the fourth Shiite Imam, after his father Husayn, his uncle Hasan, and his grandfather Ali, the Prophet’s son-in-law. He survived the Battle of Karbala and was taken along with the enslaved women to the caliph in Damascus.

His famous supplications are well known as Al-Sahifa al-Sajjadiyya.
