Jabala b. Ali al-Shaybani (Arabic: جَبَلَة بن عَلی الشَیبانی) was martyred at the Battle of Karbala. He also supported Imam Ali in the Battle of Siffin and Muslim b. Aqil in his uprising in Kufa.
Before Karbala[edit | edit source]
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. Before Muslim was martyred, Jabala hid among his own tribe. Thus he escaped capture by ibn Ziyad.
During Karbala[edit | edit source]
When Imam Hussain reached Karbala, Jabala joined his army. He was then martyred in the first attack on the Day of Ashura.
Ziyarat al-Shuhada mentions him by name, saying,
Peace be upon Jabala b. 'Ali al-Shaybani
