Muqsiṭ b. Zuhayr b. Ḥarth al-Taghlibī (Arabic: مُقسِط بن زُهَیر بن حَرث التَغلِبی) was a companion of Imam Ali (a). He attended the three battles of Jamal, Siffin, and Nahrawan.[1] He was also a member of Imam al-Hasan's (a) military forces in Kufa.[2]

When Imam al-Husayn (a) entered Karbala, he and his brothers, Kurdus and Qasit, joined the Imam's (a) army overnight. He was martyred on the Day of 'Ashura.[3] It is said that he was one of the Martyrs of Karbala in the first attack of 'Umar b. Sa'd's army.

In Ziyarah al-Shuhada', his two brothers are mentioned:[4] "peace be upon Qasit and Kurdus the sons of Zuhayr al-Taghlibi", but Muqsit is not mentioned.
