Munjiḥ or Munḥij b. Sahm (Arabic: مُنْجِح أو منحج بن سهم) (d. 61/680) was a slave of Imam al-Sajjad (a) who was martyred in the battle of Karbala.

The mother of Munjih was a slave bought by Imam al-Husayn (a) from Nufil b. Harith b. 'Abd al-Muttalib. Then she married another slave called Sahm, the father of Munjih. Imam al-Husayn (a) gave him as a servant to Imam al-Sajjad (a).[1]

When Imam al-Husayn (a) set out from Medina to Mecca with his supporters and his family, Munjih also left Medina with his mother.[2] Some sources stated that he accompanied the caravan of Imam al-Husayn (a).[3]

Munjih was martyred in the battle of Karbala in 'Ashura.[4] The exact time of his martyrdom is not known. Ibn Shahr Ashub stated in the first attack of enemies of Imam al-Husayn (a) to his army, ten slaves of Ali b. Abi Talib (a) and Imam al-Husayn (a) were martyred.[5] It is said Hassan b. Bakr al-Hanzali martyred Munjih.[6]

The name of Munjih is stated in ziyara al-Shuhada as a martyr of the battle of Karbala.[7]
