Biography[edit | edit source]

Umar was a brave horseman from Kufa. Some have said that Umar b. Dubaya'a also met the Prophet.[1]

In the battle of Karbala[edit | edit source]

Umar b. Dhubayʿa was on the side of Umar b. Sa'd's army. However, when he saw that the suggestions of Imam Hussain were not accepted by the army of Umar b. Sa'd and they did not allow him to return, he and a group of others joined Imam.[2] He was martyred in the first attack of the army of Umar b. Sa'd.

In the Ziarat al-Shuhada, he has been blessed, "Peace be upon Amr b. Dubay'a al-Duba'i.".[3]
