In the Battle of Karbala, Bajdal b. Sulaym al-Kalbi was in the army of 'Umar b. Sa'd who cut Imam al-Husayn's (a) finger to steal his ring. He was captured in the Uprising of Mukhtar and by the order of Mukhtar, first his fingers and then his feet were cut and writhed in his blood until he died. This is mentioned in contemporary sources, but in earlier historical references, there is no mention of his presence in the Battle of Karbala.
