Sittiyya Seminary (Persian: مدرسه علمیه ستّیه) is a school of religious studies in Qom, which was built near Bayt al-Nur, the place where Fatima al-Ma'suma (a) stayed and worshiped. The school came to be known as "Sittiyya", allegedly because writers in the Safavid period referred to Fatima al-Ma'suma (a) as "Sitti Fatima" (means my lady Fatima), and over time the school came to be called "Sittiyya". There is a mosque near the school and Bayt al-Nur. The school was significantly renovated with the support of Ayatollah Gulpayigani.
