Saʿd the slave of ʿAmr (ʿUmar) b. Khālid al-Ṣaydāwī (Arabic:سَعد مَولى عَمرو بن خالِد الصَيداوي) (martyrdom: Day of Ashura, 61/680) was among the martyrs of Karbala. He was the slave of 'Amr b. Khalid al-Saydawi. He, together with his master 'Amr b. Khalid al-Saydawi, joined the caravan of Imam al-Husayn (a) in 'Udhayb al-Hijanat. On the Day of 'Ashura, he was martyred in the first attack.

Introduction

Sa'd was the slave of Abu Khalid 'Amr b. Khalid al-Saydawi. In Ibsar al-'ayn, al-Samawi has introduced him an honorable and aspiring person. His master has been mentioned to be 'Amr or 'Umar b. Khalid. The name of Sa'd's father is unknown. In A'yan al-Shi'a, al-Sayyid Muhsin al-Amin has quoted from some contemporary scholars that the name of Sa'd's father was 'Abd Allah. However, he considered it an unreliable record.

In the Battle of Ashura

In the Battle of Karbala, Sa'd and his master 'Amr were two of the four people who exited Kufa and with the guidance of al-Tirimmah, joined the caravan of Imam al-Husayn (a) in 'Udhayb al-Hijanat. Al-Hurr wanted to capture them or make them return, but Imam (a) prevented him.

Martyrdom

On the Day of 'Ashura, he was martyred in the first attack. The four who had joined Imam (a) in 'Udhayb al-Hijanat, attacked the army of 'Umar b. Sa'd and pierced the army. The soldiers of 'Umar b. Sa'd surrounded them and cut their connection with other companions of Imam al-Husayn (a). Then, al-'Abbas b. Ali (a) attacked the army of 'Umar b. Sa'd and rescued them. Once again, they attacked and fought until they were martyred in one place. He is buried in the mass grave of the martyrs of Karbala in the Holy Shrine of Imam al-Husayn (a).
