Saʿd b. Ḥanẓala al-Tamīmī was among great people in the army of Imam al-Husayn (a) who was martyred on the Day of 'Ashura in the desert of Karbala (in 61/680).

His Name

Ibn Shahrashub in al-Manaqib and 'Allama al-Majlisi in Bihar al-anwar have mentioned his name among the martyrs of Karbala, but Tustari believed that his correct name was Hanzala b. As'ad al-Shabami which has been openly mentioned in 'Auyun akhbar al-Rida (a) and this mistake has been made due to replacement the name of the son with the name of the father and also distortion of 'As'ad to Sa'd.

In Karbala

Sa'd was among great personalities in the army of Imam al-Husayn (a). On the Day of 'Ashura when the battle had become intense, he went to Imam (a) and asked him for permission to go to the battlefield. After receiving permission and farewell to Imam (a) , he went to the battlefield.

His Martyrdom

According to historical reports, his fight was before the noon on the Day of 'Ashura. In al-Manaqib, Ibn Shahrashub wrote,

"He went to the battlefield after Khalid b. 'Amr al-Azdi and before 'Umayr b. 'Abd Allah al-Mudhhaji and after a brave fight, killed and wounded many soldiers and was martyred in the desert of Karbala in defense of the family of Imam Ali (a)."
