Sweet little Sakinah, daughter of Husayn
A child of only four, went through so much pain
Kind and caring always sharing what she had
In Karbala she saw how Yazid was so bad
Noticing the birds over the prison sky
Aunty Zainab she asked, "where do they fly?"
Home she never reached in Shaam did she die
O sweet Sakinah, for you today we cry
