Companionship of Muslim b. 'Aqil[edit | edit source]

Salim b. 'Amr b. 'Abd Allah was a servant of the clan of Banu l-Madina al-Kalbi. As a Shi'a, Salim accompanied Muslim b. 'Aqil in his uprising, and after Muslim's martyrdom, he was arrested by Kathir b. Shahab. He escaped Obayd-Allah b. Ziyad's prison after a while and hid in his own tribe.

Joining Imam al-Hussain[edit | edit source]

After Imam al-Hussain's carvan reached Karbala, Salim and a number of people from Banu Kalb joint Imam's army. He was martyred on the Day of Ashura. In the book, Ibsar al-'ayn, Ibn Shahrashub is quoted as saying that Salim was martyred within the first attack on the Day of Ashura. However, he is not listed among the first martyrs in extant versions of Ibn Shahrashub's Manaqib.

Skeptical Considerations[edit | edit source]

Early Shiite sources of history and rijal did not mention Salim among martyrs of Karbala. However, he is mentioned as martyr of Karbala in Ziyara al-Shuhada as cited in books of hadiths, such as Iqbal al-a'mal and Bihar al-anwar: "peace be upon Salim the servant of Banu l-Madina Kalbi". However, he is not mentioned in the version of Ziyarat al-Shuhada cited in al-Shaykh al-Mufid's al-Mazar as well as Ibn Mashhadi's Al-Mazar. Muhammad Taqi Shushtari has cast doubts over the existence of such a person.
