    Rabaa Al-Adawiya mosque

    The Rabaa Al-Adawiya Mosque (Arabic: مسجد رابعة العدوية‎, pronounced ), also transliterated Rabi''a Al-Adawiya, Rabaa El-Adawia or Rabaa El-Adaweya, is a well-known mosque located on the northern edge of Nasr City district in eastern Cairo. It was named after the 8th-century Sufi saint Rabia Al-Adawiya.

    A number of high-profile funerals have been conducted at the mosque, including that of Anwar Sadat and Ma''mun al-Hudaybi, partially due to its proximity to the cemetery east of Cairo.

    In July 2013, Rabaa Al-Adawiya Mosque and the adjacent Rabaa Square became a sit-in protest area for supporters of President Mohamed Morsi after he was removed from power by Minister of Defense Abdel Fattah el-Sisi on July 3. The mosque was later destroyed on August 14, 2013 during what became known as the August 2013 Cairo sit-ins dispersal, when security forces violently moved in and evacuated the area, resulting in at least 638 deaths. The mosque was later rebuilt under the direction of the Egyptian Armed Forces.
