Before the Event of Karbala

Jabala b. 'Ali was from Banu Shayban tribe (a branch of Bakr b. Wa'il). He was famous for his bravery. According to some sources, he was in Imam 'Ali's army in the Battle of Siffin. He also accompanied Muslim b. 'Aqil in his uprising in Kufa. However, before Muslim b. 'Aqil's martyrdom, Jabala went to his own tribe and hid there.

In the Event of Karbala

When Imam Hussain reached Karbala, he joined the Imam's army. He was then martyred in the first attack on the Day of Ashura.

He is mentioned in the Ziyarat al-Shuhada: "peace be upon Jabala b. 'Ali al-Shaybani" (السَّلَامُ عَلَی جَبَلَةَ بْنِ عَلِی الشَّیبَانِی).
