A poem written by Sayf bin Umayrah al-Nakhi, who was a companion of Imam al-Sadeq (as) and Imam al-Kadhim (as), eulogizing Sayeda Roqayyah (as):
Upon Sakina, tranquility has departed,

When her separation from her father left her broken-hearted.

For Roqayyah, even the envious is softened by her weakness,

For those have not pardoned her, will ask for forgiveness.
I shall never forget Sakina and Roqayyah,

Where tears are shed with powerful woes.

They implore their pure mother Fatima,

The call of those whom are broken and sorrowful.
O' Mother, this is Hussain upon us,

Covered in soil resembling a bright full moon.

The soil of Karbala is covered with,

The blood of the corpse of the holy one.
Reported by Sheikh Fakhr al-Deen al-Turaihi in his book al-Muntakhab.

Birth of Imam al-Kadhim (as) - 7th of Safar?

A deeper look.
It is a known tradition that from the first day of Muharram till the 8th of Rabi al-Awwal, it is a time of grief and sadness for the tragedies that befell the Ahlulbayt (as).
However, some claim that this lacks legitmacy, especially when happy occasions occur during this time period - most notably, the birth of Imam al-Kadhim (as).

Sayeda Zainab (as) holding Majlis Aza for Sayeda Roqayyah (as).
It was reported that when the Ahlulbayt returned to Medina, the women of the city came to console the Alawite women for the tragedy they endured.
And Sayeda Zainab (as) began to narrate to them what happened in Karbala, Kufa and the Levant, from the tragedies and calamities and the numerous amount of afflictions that befell them. The women began to cry and wail over Imam al-Hussain (as).
