Al-Nukhayla (Arabic: النُخَیلَة) was a military camp near Kufa. Imam Ali (a) gave a speech for his companions at this location. Also, in the event of Karbala, Ibn Ziyad sent some forces from Nukhayla to help Umar b. Sa'd to fight with Imam al-Husayn (a). This place is now known as Abbasiyyat.

Nukhayla was near Kufa on the way to Syria.[1] This place is now known as Abbasiyyat.[2] Also, Nukhayla was the name of a water near Maghitha and Aqaba (in the south of Kufa).[3]

Historical Events

Mosque of Nukhayla

In the city of al-Kifl near Kufa, there is a mosque known as the mosque of Nukhayla, the construction of which dates back to the time of Öljeitü. It is said that this mosque was built in a place Imam Ali (a) performed prayer before going to Siffin.[10] However, some writers rejected this claim and said that based on historical sources, Imam Ali (a) camped in Nukhayla before crossing Euphrates, while the mentioned place is located after Euphrates. Also, there is a place called Nukhayla twenty five km to the east of al-Raqqa (in Syria), the residents of which believe that it was the place Imam Ali (a) stayed in the battle of Siffin.[11]
