Salim is mentioned as martyr of Karbala in the version of Ziyara al-Shuhada  that in the Hadith books ''Iqbal al-a'mal'' and ''Bihar al-anwar,'' with the phrase, "peace be upon Salim the servant of Banu l-Madina Kalbi". However, early Shiite sources of history and [http://www.oxfordislamicstudies.com/article/opr/t125/e1010 rijal] do not mention Salim among martyrs of Karbala. Furthermore, he is not mentioned in the version of [[Ziyarat al-Shuhada]] cited in [[al-Shaykh al-Mufid]]'s ''al-Mazar'' or in Ibn Mashhadi's'' Al-Mazar.'' Muhammad Taqi Shushtari has cast doubts over the existence of such a person.
